Sophomore Year Worries

Concerns I have before starting my sophomore year of college.

Sophomore Year Worries

In about a month, I will be starting my sophomore year of college. I am very excited to start taking classes more focused on my major, but I also have a few worries in the back of my mind. Sophomore year is going to be a total 360 from freshman year, and that both excites me and frightens me.

Last year, I had major roommate issues. So the fact that sophomore year is approaching and I am going to be living with a few new people, I'm worried I will again have issues. I am going to try and remain on the bright side and hope that the new roommates will be nice and easy going. One can only hope for the best, I just wish I wasn't worried.

The internet connection on campus last year was terrible. I basically had to go over my uncle and cousin's house every time I needed to do an assignment for class. I'm worried that nothing was done to improve the connection for students and I will yet again, have to rely on family so I can do my school work on time. I know many other students who lived on campus had issues with the Wi-Fi, so to go into my sophomore year and know that nothing was done to fix the problem, worries me. I worry that my school work won't get done in time because I wouldn't have access to internet.

I am worried that I won't like the classes I am scheduled to take and that I will want to change my major completely. Right now, my major is set to be business management. I have never taken a business course, but I feel like it would be great to focus on the hospitality side of management and I could one day own/run my own hotel. However, since I am going into these classes with no business background, I am worried I will be a couple weeks into my classes and not be happy with what I choose as my major. I am hoping that I lucked out and that my classes interest me, at least enough to keep business management as my major.

Finances worry me going into my sophomore year. I want to be able to support myself and hopefully get my own apartment sometime within the near future, along with a vehicle. However, I only have a part-time job and I worry that I won't be able to save any time soon to have and do the things I want. More importantly, I want to be able to get my own place. I love the area that my school is in, and the fact that I am not a fan of dorm living will make me happier once I don't have to do it. Getting my own place is top priority but it's also a worry because I also need money for food and other necessities.

Going into my sophomore year, I have many worries. The only thing that is making me not stress as much, is the fact that everything will work out just maybe not at the pace I want. I am just going to tackle it all one thing at a time and I know it will all fall in place at the end.

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.
