Summer Classes Can Either Be Great Or Not So Great

The one thing to dread to having a carefree summer: summer classes.

Summer classes can be great or not so great. But I will tell you one thing, it's a stressful summer over a carefree summer.

Summer classes can be great, simply for the fact that you can get ahead on credits. The best part is that some classes are even offered completely online. This makes it a bit better, considering you don't have to go to class. What sucks about that right? Well, there is an issue. If you're someone who doesn't check on deadlines, then an online class might not be for you. Summer classes online tend to move at a more fast pace than a class that meets in person. It's VERY easy to miss a deadline, and even just missing one, can affect your grade drastically.

Another thing about taking summer classes is that you have to be kind of responsible. It may be summer, but you have homework, quizzes, tests, and papers to keep on top of. You can't make plans before you make sure all your stuff is done. It can be stressful, especially if you're working and trying to keep your social life alive.

The great parts about summer classes are getting ahead on credits, online classes, but the greatest part would defiantly be not falling out of the school grind. Yeah, come at me all you want but I will say it's nice to keep in a grind. Usually, over summer, I don't write, read, or even think remotely about school but taking classes helps me stay in the mindset of school. For me, it's easy to balance classes, work, and my social life because I get my work done early in the week. I will admit, it does get stressful if you don't keep up with deadlines, but if you're organized, you can do it.

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.
