What Spring Time Brings To Ole Miss

With Spring Break being over, spring semester is just truly beginning

What Spring Time Brings To Ole Miss

At Ole Miss, although the spring semester starts in January, it doesn't truly hit until we get back from spring break. When spring comes to Oxford/Ole Miss, it brings so much with it.

For starters, can we talk about the tulips?

Every year I have been a student here I am somehow still in awe of how beautiful and abundant the tulips are on this campus. They start planting them so early, but once the weather gets nicer, they make going to class every day a little bit brighter, and they are always fresh!

Another thing that is in full swing, (lol literally) is SEC baseball.

Ole Miss has a special way with its' sports. I mean the grove for football and Morgan Freeman at most of the basketball games. But there is just something about baseball season here at Ole Miss. That feeling, sitting in right field, sun in your eyes, surrounded by your classmates and then BAM, a home run and you're all soaked in beer. To anyone who isn't a student at Ole Miss, that probably doesn't sound particularly enjoyable, but beer showers at Swayze are something that truly never gets old.

And duh, spring also brings spring parties!!

As a senior, this doesn't really affect me too much, but I still enjoy seeing pictures and videos of everyone. And spring party szn just provides that feeling that the school year is so close to being over.

Last but certainly not least is Double Decker, ahh the holy weekend here in Oxford.

The big red bus, an insane amount of people in Oxford, the Square is completely blocked off, Funky's daiquiris in the perfect temperature, walking to the baseball field from the square. I mean the weather is always perfect during Double Decker, it's like God knows how much this town values that weekend. Double Decker means only a few weeks of classes left. And then you blink your eye and spring semester, just like that, is over.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
