Summer Classes As Told By "Parks And Recreation"

If you're a student, you have probably taken summer classes. Whether it's to retake a class that you failed, to get ahead in classes, or just to graduate in time, we all know the struggle of summer school. As the normal school year comes to an end, let's take a moment of silence to remember the pains of going through summer classes.

You walk out of your last final, feeling triumphant that summer is finally here.

You are done!

You celebrate with all your college friends that all the finals are over and you finally get a break.

Party all weekend? Yes, please!

Then, suddenly, you feel dread.

It's like you're forgetting something.

Then, you remember that you're signed up for summer classes.

Why did you sign yourself up for summer classes?

Your calendar becomes a countdown of your days left of freedom, but you're smiling through the pain.

Or, you realize at the end of the semester that you signed up for a May-mester.

You get in your car to drive to your first class of the summer-mester.

Maybe it won't be so bad!

You walk in and immediately think:

Oh yeah, it's that bad.

You sit in class and wish that you were outside in the sun. Or maybe working and earning money.

Or doing something productive besides learning about Trigonometry.

Once class is over for the day, you realize that you have at least four more weeks of this class to deal with.

The end is near.

When you get home from your first day, you go to your pets for comfort and solitude.

Toby does not know your troubles, but Toby understands.

The days go on. You learn so much information that you're not sure that you can remember everything.

How can a four-week class contain so much information?

Then, you have to take tests during the summer.

As if your summer wasn't bad enough.

You also realize that you have at least one exam during the summer.

At least it doesn't get worse than this.

So, instead of enjoying your summer nights, you spend your time studying at the library.

Or you can study at home. Either way, it's a nightmare.

Trying to study with your classmates is a joke.

Unfortunately, some of your classmates might be doing worse in the class than you are. Pick your comrades wisely or just fly solo.

You end up like this the night before your final:

It's fine. You might survive.

When walking into your final:

Just remember, summer is at your fingertips.

After you finish your final for the class:

At least, until your next semester of summer classes start!

Have a happy summer and may your class load be light!

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.
