Signs You Hit The Sophomore Slump

The Senioritis of College

Signs You Hit The Sophomore Slump
Odyssey

The sophomore slump: The time where a college student is taken down reality and see what college really entails.

1. You No Longer Care About Meeting New People

Your freshmen year was spent meeting new people all the time and becoming friends with whatever said people you formed a good connection with. But this year, you are worn out from meeting all the people that you do and you could not care less about making new friends.

2. You Are Really Poor

As if you were not already by freshmen year.

3. You Still Don't Know What You Want to Major In

Honestly, this is stressed about way too often. Almost half of college graduates do not even go into careers related to their majors right out of college.

4. You Question Why You Are Still In College

A really obvious sign that you are slumping. Many people are not fully sure why they are in college but they can usually name a few reasons why. But what really shows you are in the slump is if you do not understand what your purpose of being in college is.

5. You Are Struggling More With Classes

Classes are bound to get more difficult beyond freshmen year. But this jump hit you way too hard.

6. You Cannot Take Any More Cafeteria Food

Cafeteria food is your enemy. You avoid it as much as you possibly can.

7. You Aren't Having As Much Fun As Freshmen Year

This is bound to happen as you most likely do not have that much time on your hands. But the late weekend nights don't give you as much joy and neither do the activities that get you through the week.

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.

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.
