Signs You Went to West Essex High School

Writing this makes me super washed up but it's all true.

Signs You Went to West Essex High School

Knowing no matter how many ice cubes you flushed and spoons you put under your pillow you weren’t getting a snow day.

Having to explain to people that you have a Senior Ball and a Junior Prom and there’s actually a big difference.

Waiting all year to see Mr. West Essex.

Panicking when you hear the annual rumor that there’s no senior service.

Realizing all of the stereotypes for each town are true.

Picking a driver partner senior year is just as important as picking a college.

Seeing half of the school at Sam’s or Dunkin every morning.

Spending a fortune on accessories to go with your color day shirts.

You’ve texted your parents to drop off a second Dunkin coffee/iced tea to make it through the day.

You’ve spent hours trying to get out of the senior lot


You’ve bragged about how good all of our sports teams are. (especially field hockey)

The wait for a sandwich makes you question your life existence.

Yes, Cash Cash went to our high school.

The WE vs Caldwell rivalry.

When people say Cesar you think of Mr. D.

There's no better joy than seeing Albo walk into your class as a sub.

When you got called to 700 you thought about everything you've done in the past year.

Parking behind Jumpnasium junior year was great until you had to hike up the hill.

Swallowing goldfish at the Luau (except for the class of 2015).

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.
