50 Things I'd Rather Do Than Wake Up For School

My fellow Odyssey contributor (Emma Wooten) collaborated with me for this article, as we share a hatred for waking up early for school. My ideas are in the regular print, her ideas are in the bold print. Here is a list of things we would rather do than wake up at 5:30am for school:

  • Not wake up at all for school
  • Step on a Lego
  • Clean my entire house
  • Pour lemon juice on a paper cut
  • Be forced to watch every single episode of The Twilight Zone (I hate this show with my entire being)
  • Eat a spoonful of salt with every meal
  • Trip up the stairs
  • Trip down the stairs
  • Sleep with my closet doors open (one of my biggest fears because monsters)
  • Fix crooked window blinds all day
  • Eat a lot of radishes (radishes taste like onions on steroids- no thank you)
  • Deal with a really touchy self-checkout register at the store and have an employee have to keep checking on me (not a fan of public attention)
  • Hear nails on a chalkboard through headphones all day
  • Put fitted sheets on beds all day long (do not fight me on this either I work up quite the sweat)
  • Walk around in broken flip-flops all day
  • Hit every red light on a long drive
  • Accidentally shower with socks on
  • Fall flat on my face in front of a large crowd
  • Have my water bottle spill all over my backpack with all my school stuff in it
  • Kiss a snake
  • Stub my toe
  • Eat the heel of a loaf of bread
  • Get a paper cut in between my fingers (the worst kind- don’t fight me)
  • Buy food from a vending machine and have it get stuck inside
  • Lose all the contacts on my phone (again)
  • Buy another item of food to get the first one loose from the machine and have that one also get stuck
  • Miss my mouth while eating something and having it spill on my clothes
  • Get a cart at the grocery store with a wonky wheel
  • Listen to country music for a whole day
  • Look at the clock at 11:12
  • Push a door you're supposed to pull or vice versa in public
  • Wear my top inside out
  • Shatter my phone screen
  • Go a whole day without realizing I had food stuck in my teeth
  • Shower with sunburn
  • Be in a room with ten spiders
  • Accidentally bite my tongue
  • Give my phone to someone else and find that they've changed all my contacts to their name
  • Forget my headphones when I need them
  • Drink water from the Dead Sea
  • Tangle my necklaces together and having to spend 8 years untangling them
  • Eat dirt
  • Be electrocuted (just a little though)
  • Listen to silverware scrape against a plate
  • Relive my middle school years (jk too far)
  • Drive over a nail and get a flat tire
  • Spill nail polish remover
  • Get stuck in an elevator for an hour or more (I am terrified of tight spaces and elevators)
  • Hold my hand over a fire
  • Trip on my laptop cord, fall, and bring the laptop down with me
  • Get my face ripped off by a pet monkey

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.
