10 Ways To Survive College Until Spring Break

With Winter Break and Martin Luther King Jr. Day over, the next break for college students is Spring Break, which can seem so far away with the semester having just started, and there is no break until the middle of the semester. Here are some tips to help you survive until spring break rolls around.

1. Get Enough Sleep

During Spring Semester, there's aren't long weekends to devote to catching up on sleep, so it's important to actually go to bed at a normal time throughout the week in order to not constantly be tired.

2. Don't Procrastinate

There's no time to make up assignments, and once you get behind, you're going to just barely be able to keep afloat for the semester. Again, you can't just put off the things that you need to do until later when there's no break in sight.

3. Make Plans

If you make plans for spring break or other times throughout the semester, then you have something to look forward to when trying to find motivation to write your third paper of the week.

4. Spend Time With Friends

It's important to take time away from school, especially to avoid burnout. Being tired of school for the whole semester makes it seem like spring break will never come.

5. Reward Yourself

It's important to recognize that in college, one of the most important things to do is to not get only caught up in working on things for college. Somedays you really just need to reward yourself for making it this far, whether it be taking a nap or going shopping.

6. Take Care of Yourself

Your health, both physical and mental, is super important. Doing what you can to stay healthy is important, even if it means taking a mental health day. Doing what you need to take care of yourself isn't something that should be put off until school is done for the semester.

7. Organize Yourself

Write things down, plan things out; don't just put it off and wing it for a couple months. I know that if I don't write things down, then I know that I won't remember that I have to do something. Especially when it gets closer to spring break, and you mentally check out, it's going to be a good thing that you already write things down because that should save you from yourself.

8. Keep Your Space Clean

When living in a space that isn't cleaned or organized, it's hard to feel comfortable. It's important to make sure that the things that you're maintaining control over your life as much as possible. It's important to be able to come home and be comfortable and feel that your life is in order outside of classes.

9. Set yourself up for success

Since it's only the second week of the semester, you have to make sure that the rest of the semester doesn't go by the wayside because you can't wait for spring break to come. Don't give up, you can make it!

10. Don't Forget that it's Closer than it Seems

Even though it's crazy to think about, the end of the semester will be here sooner than you think, and therefore spring break is closer than you think. You just have to make it about a month longer.

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.
