Starting A New Semester As Told By 'New Girl'

No one understands our pain more than the cast of "New Girl."

Starting A New Semester As Told By 'New Girl'

The Christmas tree has been taken down, the new year has begun, and it is time for the second semester. It is once again time for late-night study sessions, mental breakdowns, new professors, and new experiences. Starting a new semester can be exciting yet grueling as we once again prepare ourselves for the stressful days to come. One of the only things that can alleviate the pain of a new semester is knowing that we are not in it alone. College students everywhere are denying the unfortunate truth that it is time for classes to begin. So here, for entertainment and a means of procrastination from that paper you should be writing, is starting a new semester as told by "New Girl."

When your friend says they're excited to start back:

No, really, please don't remind me. I refuse to accept it.

Looking at your classes and realizing how many you're taking:

I obviously was feeling way too overly confident in my abilities when I made my schedule.

When you realize your professor assigned work over break:

I thought the purpose of breaks was to relax? No? Okay.

When you walk in late on the first day and interrupt a lecture about being on time...

Maybe if I come in quietly and don't make eye contact, no one will notice.

... but still try to find the perfect person to sit beside

This decision of who to sit beside is life or death. What if we have to be partnered up or discuss ideas with them? Choose wisely.

When your professor asks if you did the reading:

I ordered the book -- that has to count for something, right?

When your mom calls and asks how your week is going and you answer, "It's fine..."

It would take way too long to explain how I'm already contemplating dropping out or switching my major... again.

When your friend complains about having 10 pages of reading:

No, please, I really do want to hear about how unfair it is that you have one single chapter of reading assigned for the entire week.

When you have your first breakdown of the semester...

I'm just going to go ahead and apologize in advance.

...and all you want to do is hide out in your room.

I'm just going to need a couple of hours to collect myself... or a few days.

When your roommate asks if you want to go to the gym:

I'm flattered and all but let's be real here.

When you go to all of your classes that week:

Trust me, this really is a huge deal.

When the weekend finally arrives:

Somehow, someway I made it through another week. Now to put off all my assignments until Sunday night and then start all over again.

So this semester when you're feeling down just take a deep breath, watch some "New Girl," and remember that we're all in this together.

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.
