12 Side Effects You Will Go Experience After Graduating High School

After you graduate, you will realize that there are things that are happening to you that wouldn't have in high school. Whether it's physical, mental, or emotional, it doesn't take a scientist to figure out that change is definitely happening or has happened.

If you're still in high school, just be aware that these things will, I repeat, WILL happen to you, so savor your young lives now while you can. Here are the side effects of graduating high school.

1. You will fall asleep earlier and earlier.

2. You'll come down with early signs of the grandma fever.

3. Your style of clothes will change from dressing up in jeans almost everyday to basically whatever you roll out of bed with.

4. Life will hit you. Hard and all at once.

5. You will find yourself declining invites to hang out with words like, "I can't, I have work" or "I have so much homework".

6. You will have to do a few things called taxes and paying bills.

7. You will have to keep up with all of your appointments and (get ready for this one) MAKE your own appointments.

8. You will barely go to the gym or exercise in general.

In fact, it's been so long that you forget what that looks like.

9. Eating salads and drinking water will become more of a chore.

10. You no longer will put heat to your hair.

It's just too much work. Instead, you will use dry-shampoo or hair-ties and call it a day.

11. Naps will turn into brief 10 to 20-minute naps IF you're lucky enough.

12. You will be diagnosed with the urge to cry at the most random and inconvenient times.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
