Stress During The Semester

Ever feel like you are falling head over heels into a world of stress?

Stress During The Semester

Stressed out from being stressed, then stressing out because you're thinking about being stressed?

Yeah, I know what you are thinking. Stress is just a part of life and that it is just going to get harder from here on out. But college is crazy hard, and stressful and having the added pressure of just always being in a state of "I don't know what I am doing" can really take a toll on a person. I sometimes wish I could relax, but if I do that then well, what school work should I really be doing?

A lot of us are preparing for midterms this week or next, and I know that stress is the main part of a mental breakdown or that it leads to it. It means a lot when someone says they know what I am going through because that means they can give me really great advice! Well, some advice I have learned is to calm down because as you know, someone may have it worse than you. Probably doesn't sound too great, does it? Yeah someone told me that once and I never forgot it. It doesn't get easier for some people but if you are lucky enough to attend college, well some people aren't as lucky and that might mean you have it better for a little while. But that doesn't mean anyone is better than anyone else, just how they deal with each situation.

In context, I would say a coping method to dealing with stress is to definitely go outside more. I try to walk my dog at the park every day if I can. Fresh air can freshen up your mind and give you some new perspectives to look at. It even helps me write better, if you can believe that. It really just releases those evil little thoughts in your head that says you can't do it. I believe if we all really just relax a little, we can accomplish really great things.

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.
