Take A Minute To Process

It's important.

Take A Minute To Process
George Gvasalia

While looking outside the bedroom window of my apartment at Syracuse University, my mind seemed to go blank. For a second, I was able to visualize simply nothing, and soon begin to daydream about myself moving into this apartment nearly six months ago. Six months ago… I thought. As I am almost halfway through the second semester, it doesn't seem to make sense where all of the time went.

I feel like I was just getting off the plane from Japan, ready to spend four days at home before I would embark on my sophomore year at Syracuse University. I feel like I was just at NYFW in the fall when in reality, I just got back from spring Fashion Week. Life has somehow flown by lately, and there are definitely positives and negatives to that—but I like to think positive.

Over these past few crazy months, I have watched my sewing craft increase immensely. I have also watched my health deplete some, which always happens the second semester—as my sleep schedule seems to plummet more by the day. My coffee intake has increased this semester by a boatload, and I have reestablished my Junior-year-of-high-school love for Red Bull….mmmmmm.

Over these past few months, I have developed a solid design portfolio and resume. I have turned in projects that I was in love with and had full confidence in, and have altered my style some to reflect how I truly want to be seen. I have accomplished so many great things, and if one of the only negatives lately is the aspect of time passing so quickly, I should not fret. At least my time is being used how I want it to be used.

Towards the end of this daydream, I realized that the craziness of this semester and exhaustion I have been carrying lately is all worth it, and as I continue to push through it I will only thank myself even more. Sometimes it is important to just take some time to process, and I highly encourage you to take a minute or so whenever you can to process as well—even if it's a daydream.

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.
