Sophomore Year College Confidential: Where Us Sophomores Are At

What this crazy semester brings to the table.

Sophomore Year College Confidential: Where Us Sophomores Are At
Pim Chu

I want to talk about college. It's currently the second semester of Sophomore year, and I know I always emphasize this, but I'm tired. We're just…tired. Spring semester just so happens to be the most difficult semester of each year of college, and this is the very semester where we have to spend doing internship search and making summer plans alongside the insane workload we have every single day.

This is the time where the clubs and organizations we are involved in on campus are extremely difficult to balance, but we still force ourselves to do our best because we love what we're involved in. We love who we have become over the past year and a half of college, and who we are becoming, and we do not want to give those traits up—ever.

The time where tears begin to make more of a presence, and where our Spotify playlists expand immensely as music is what we have, and need in the background of nearly everything we do in order to stay sane. It's the time where we can see our grades dropping, so we sacrifice even more of our sleep schedule to preventing that from happening. Where we drown ourselves in homework, activities, resumes, portfolios, and the nearest caffeinated beverage, as we have so much to do and such little energy.

The time where the crazy motivation we have each semester begins to decline some, but we allow caffeine to rescue us almost immediately. It's like we know the exact time each day when we need another caffeine fix, and find ourselves sitting at the drive-thru, waiting for out third macchiato of the day.

It's when water becomes the healthiest thing our body is intaking, and where our exercise is us running around nearly every hour of the day trying to get everything that needs to be done completed.

This is the semester where we're on the brink of insanity, but realize that summer comes before next semester, and remember just how much those beach days will all be worth the spring semester struggle. This is the semester where we persevere, and remember that we got through it last year, so we will do it again.

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.
