The Trials And Tribulations Of Spring Semester: As Told By Michael Scott

No, god, please no.

The Trials And Tribulations Of Spring Semester: As Told By Michael Scott
NBC Universal

Recently, I have discovered the show the office. Yes, I know that the show has been around for years, and yes I have lived under a rock during that period of time. The show is absolutely hilarious, and I'm so happy I discovered it.

It's the second week of college of my sophomore spring semester, and so far its been very interesting. to describe how it's been interesting, or how these past two weeks have been. I thought I would have my favorite character, Michael Scott, describe the pleasures of college. So here is college as told by Michael Scott.

1. When the first of many alarms go off...

I dread when the first alarm that I sent on my phone goes off, that means its the start of a new day. When in all honesty I want to go back to bed.

2. The 8 am class.

8 am's are rough, but having a cup of coffee may help you feel less dead inside... or not. But 8 am's, in my opinion, are extremely rough.

3. Doing class projects

Well, that pretty much sums that up.

4. When someone who annoys you tries to talk to you.

Again, that pretty much sums that up.

5. Meeting a new cute guy

You never know who you'll meet in college, it could be love at first sight. And I found someone who's pretty great, and to me is my Jim and I am his Pam... but this is about Michael, not my favorite iconic couple.

6. Going out in the cold... weather

God, I wish. But this winter has been brutal and filled with many snow storms and temperatures that were so cold. I am extremely ready for summer to be here.

7. When the professor says you don't need the textbook, and it's the only one you have of the three books that were required for that class!

That was the day I wanted to throw myself down a flight of stairs, but in all reality, it was OK and I got refunded for the textbook.

8. Realizing it's going to be a good semester! (Or will it?)

Besides all of the jokes I've made, I'm very excited to see what this semester brings me. And I will be looking at this semester very positively no matter what happens to get in my way. But I'm looking forward to having a way better semester.

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.
