Studying Abroad As Told By Tina Belcher

"Don't have a crap attack" -Tina Belcher

Studying Abroad As Told By Tina Belcher

Studying abroad is a life-changing experience. Sometimes, portraying something beautiful is challenging. Since studying abroad is a whirlwind of experiences that I could not even begin to describe all by myself, I've decided to use Tina Belcher as a way to help me communicate what this experience has been like.

1.) When you fly into the country that you're studying in for the first time

2.) When you can't sleep even though you have jetlag because you're too excited and also because the bed is terrible

3.) When you have to do those awkward ice breakers in order to introduce yourself

4.) When you're ready to meet new people on your own

5.) When you take risks and try new things

6.) When you realize how much money you're spending

7.) When you do something embarassing because everything is different from the way it is back home

8.) When you know exactly what to say when you meet a local

9.) When you're outfit is on fleek AND you're prepared for the weather

10.) When you you're legally allowed to drink and you take advantage of it for the first time

11.) When you dance at a bar for the first time

12.) When you learn new things about your country (close enough to a county)

13.) When you have trouble understanding someone's accent (or when they have trouble understanding yours)

14.) When you buy everyone souvenirs

15.) When you realize you have to go home soon

I'm really grateful for the time that I've spent abroad, and I'm especially grateful for Tina Belcher, who helps me portray my feelings when I cannot.

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.
