Ten Things Summer Classes Taught Me

Nothing is more fun then spending summer days in a classroom...

Ten Things Summer Classes Taught Me

We have all been there: the dreaded summer semesters. No choice but to sign up and subject yourself to the torment. I've been lucky enough to avoid summer classes up until this summer when I had to take Anatomy & Physiology 2. And let me enlighten you with what you'll actually learn.

1. First day of summer classes is like the nicest day of the year, and they expect you to listen to a three-hour lecture about the nervous system. Then suddenly as your daydream of being poolside ends you realize you missed 6 pages of notes...

2. The exhaustion from the spring semester just carries over to the summer semester. And all you wanna do is sleep all day long and ignore adult responsibilities.

3. When friends call with vacation plans and you have to say no because you have an exam, you're just like

4. Studying for summer classes is a lot like being blackout drunk, waking up with your shoes on the wrong feet and your pants on backward.

5. The shortened semester makes for a faster moving class and a high blood pressure.

6. You realize in a few weeks that nothing has ever prepared you for this torture.

7. You become cynical and grumpy 99.9% of the time when you are in class and out of class. Constantly thinking to yourself, "Will this EVER end?"

8. When your friends try to understand your pain by comparing it to their summer jobs. Ahhh, at least you can leave and not do floor sets at your house. I'd take your summer job over this class any day.

9. Final exam time, almost home free. You crack open your notes and suddenly realize you have not a clue what language you're even reading. Then you bust out the calculator to figure out what is the lowest possible score you can get on the final and still pass.

10. Exams are in, grades posted. You passed and now you're like

Now you can take on the last three weeks of summer break before you have to go back and do it all over again. Yeah, I'm just a little bit bitter.

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.
