Spring Fever
Start writing a post

There is so much talk about spring finally arriving, but what are we all actually excited for? I went around on campus asking people what they are most excited for this spring, and here are some of their responses:
“I’m most excited to finally get to ride my bike again!”-Sophomore
“I finally get to wear my maxi skirts and short shorts!”- Junior
“Finally get to run outside with no shirt on.”-Freshman
“I won’t have to take a cab to the bars anymore! It will be warm enough to walk there!”- Senior
“I can go rollerblading without falling on my face!”-Sophomore
“Running around Calhoun!”- Senior
“Tanning next to trash cans…”- Sophomore
“I’m excited to be able to enjoy my walk to class and not freeze my butt off!”- Sophomore
“No more runny noses!”-Freshman
“Girls in tight shirts and short shorts….”-Sophomore

For the most part, people are just excited for the warm weather with no snow.  I truly believe that campus becomes more alive and everyone is actually happier in the spring.  
This is obvious when you take a walk through the mall. In the winter, obviously no one sits out in the courtyard.  Everyone has their hoods up and face down.  No one talks, and everyone just books it to class.  In the spring, people literally take naps on the lawn.  People have study dates and lunch outside.  Everyone smiles at each other, and they take their sweet old time getting to class.  People actually want to walk to class, because the outside weather is just as warm as their covers on their beds.  

Spring is hopefully just around the corner.  It’s almost time to get out your spring wardrobe and put away your winter boots.  The snow will soon start to melt and everyone will start to feel happy and giddy.

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.

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.
