12 Feelings At The End Of 'Silly' Week That Are All Too Real

... when you're just trying to get through one day at a time.

12 Feelings At The End Of 'Silly' Week That Are All Too Real

Oh, syllabus week, a time to stress about homework that you may or may not need to do, walk miles for no reason, or even do nothing. The point is we all have been there. Not only is it the first weekend back from break but we're all so tired.

To sum it all up or whatever of a week this was, here are some typical feelings of syllabus week that are all too real:

1. Back Living With Other People

On winter break, you relax and do what you want. Have your own bed, own room where no one disturbs you. You realize your sleep at school is never going to be as restful as it will be at home. That's just it.

2. Getting Used To Campus Food...again

We all know campus food is never as good as mom's home-cooked meals. Getting back to eating strictly campus food is a large adjustment. Prepare for your stomach to be upset for the first week until things straighten out and you get used to your new semester schedule.

3. You're Tired In General

You get tired because syllabus week is enough in of itself. Whether you're tired of classes that you will end up taking for the entire semester, have no motivation, or stressing about the major you're applying to, it will be okay. Plus you realize again how much frustration and stress college causes.

4. Life Was So Peaceful On Break

No screaming and no slamming doors is a dream come true. Plus, there's no sleep interruption. Also, no stress of studying. What could be better?!?

5. You're Overwhelmed And Stressed

Each class seems more work than it actually is. Classes are overwhelming at first but as soon as you get used to the course load, the better.

6. New Year, New Sleep Schedule

That's right people, new year, new sleep schedule. This also means a new sleep schedule for your roommate too, which could be good or bad either way you look at it. Getting back into not having as much sleep for an entire semester is hard, especially if you're like me and laid around for three straight weeks over winter break.

7. Walking Everywhere Because You're Too Lazy To Catch The Bus

Laziness is real the first week of the semester. Everyone's trying to figure it out just as much as you are. Motivation for the semester is at an all-time low and you just don't feel like waiting for the bus. However, walking can be just as fast if not faster than taking the bus.

8. Read Your Syllabus And Read It Again

Reading every syllabus thoroughly and writing down which exams are cumulative and final exam day saves a lot of time down the road. As tempting as it is to do, don't start randomly flipping pages in your syllabus expecting to find information you missed. Go in having an intention of finding what you're looking for.

9. Go To Class!

You or your parents are paying a lot of money to go to class. Plus going to class proves you don't have to do everything on your own by constantly reading the textbook. You're also missing out on a lot of material you will need to know for tests.

10. Have Your Schedule With You At All Times

If you're like me and sometimes forget what time class starts weeks into the semester, keep your class schedule with you at all times! I feel keeping it with you on paper if more helpful thank keeping it on your phone. This way you're able to learn how to block out time more.

11. Those People Who Still Haven't Bought Textbooks

Talk about being even more stressful when you can't do an assignment because you don't have the textbook. Always have textbooks prior to starting a new semester. Not only will they be cheaper but ship faster.

12. All The Transfers

When transfers ask you where stuff is (awww).

Maybe after syllabus week, take a chill pill and sleep, catch up on television or homework. Because after a long, hard semester with only a week break, your body will thank you.

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.
