10 Stages Students Go Through When Summer Is Almost Within Our Reach
Taylor Plate

So, school's just about done with. It's been a long, hard semester, and we all deserve the blessed summer break that is about to be presented unto us. Some of us may be going on vacation, some of us may be working, and some of us may be laying around on the couch for three months straight.

No matter how you are spending your summer break, all that matters is that it's coming. So, in honor of the impending gloriousness that is summer vacation, here are the 10 stages you go through when summer break is almost here.

1. Hopefulness.


You know that summer is just a few days away and you can probably make it.

2. Denial.

You start to feel like summer may never actually come; you're stuck in some kind of collegiate twilight zone.

3. Anger.

Although you've only been in school for 3 and a half months, you become infuriated that summer break hasn't arrived yet.

4. Fatigue.

You have three assignments and four tests left, and there is no way you can get any of it done. Where is summer!?

5. Despair.

You've completely given up on summer getting here. You'll just rot in your library chair. It's better for everyone this way.

6. Derangement.

If you hadn't already lost your mind, it's official now. You've gone off the deep end because there's no way you can take one more day of school.

7. Relaxation.

You've used up all your energy freaking out about summer not being here yet, so now all you can do is sit back and try not to think about it.

8. Anxiousness.

Summer is so close that you can practically taste it, and you can't take it for one more minute.

9. Sadness.

Even though you're psyched for summer, you realize that you're going to miss college.

10. Complete joy.

Noone is going to bring you down, because you made it!!!

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.
