5 Tips To Survive Spring Semester

Spring semester is a tough one. Here are some tips to getting through it and surviving it.

1. Make A Friend To Hold You Accountable


If you don't have one already, find a friend in each of your classes. Someone who can text or call you when you miss class. Someone who will check in to see if you are coming or not. Not someone who will just say okay and send you notes. Find someone who will motivate you and miss you when you aren't there.

2. Schedule


SCHEDULE. SCHEDULE. SCHEDULE. With the spring weather coming it can be difficult to keep focus and not go outside and play frisbee or hike with friends. But you can always schedule in time to study and time to go hiking. Try not to go off and do spontaneous activities....at least until the semester is over.

3. Think of Graduation


If you are graduating then just think about how close it is! If not, then try to think about all the summer adventures you will have or experience! Think of break and how close you are to finishing up the school year.

4. Doing Something In Your Community


Having some kind of purpose that will keep you busy is a great way to also keep you organized about your scheduling. It will also fill you with some type of happiness and fulfillment that will help motivate you to keep going and to keep making a difference.

5. Remember What Your Goals Are


By doing this you can stay motivated. Whether that means thinking about your career, the money you'll be making, etc. Anything that can help keep you on track and focused is always a positive to have in your life.

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.
