13 Struggles For Girls Who NEED Our Sleep and snooze the alarm 7 times

Class at 9am? No biggie. *sets alarm for 8:50am*

Where are my girls at? I'm talking about the ones who shamelessly need their seven hours of sleep at night to even think about getting out of bed on time the next morning. I am no doubt one of them, and over the years, I noticed patterns that seem to repeat themselves time and time again, despite my best efforts.

1. Anything before 10am is just too early.

"Hey, want to meet for breakfast?"

"Sure, what time?"

"8:30 in the caf?"

"Sorry, I can't..."

2. And when you get stuck with an early class, you make every effort to avoid it.

It's on these days that your roommate probably reminds you that you can't miss EVERY class before 10.

3. So you plan it out to the VERY last minute you can sleep in the morning.

Class at 9am? *sets alarm for 8:53*

4. But you still make sure you have enough time to run to Starbucks before you book it to class.

You know just how much time it takes the barista to pour your grande caramel iced coffee with room, with enough time to spare for you to add the cream and sugar (3 minutes 42 seconds to be exact).

5. When you come home you realize you have to get up earlier for your plans.

Everything is a farther trip than a 10 minute walk across campus.

6. On weekends its not unusual to sleep in WAY later than normal.

Sometimes to the point that your roommate wakes you up simply because it's almost noon.

7. But anyone who takes this risk may be asking for trouble.

I'm truly sorry for anything I said to you before noon.

8. You are known for moving plans back if they are made too early in the morning.

"Hey, can we push that start time back to 11?"

9. You're one of the first ones to leave an event because you want to shower and get to bed.

"Hey, I'll see y'all tomorrow!"

10. Sometimes you'd drop *not so subtle* hints to your roommate to ask her guests to leave.

*Crawls under the covers and turns your back to the room*

11. You'll wake up and check your phone to see all the conversations you missed from the night before.

32 texts and 24 snapchats later...

12. Your'e a self-proclaimed power napper

Never underestimate the power of a midday nap

13. You're known as the "not a morning person" person in your friend group

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.

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.
