It has come that time again. The time every college students anticipates with both excitement yet fear. The time to register for classes. It's an emotional rollercoaster no matter how prepared you think you are and usually goes a little something like this....

1. The Initial Panic Stage

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F63595398000405537379379331_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=113&h=84b21db5ecb75144cde9ed44a5d10ce5997fcf5e3440ac84d5c55f9361514e92&size=980x&c=1067945482 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F63595398000405537379379331_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D113%26h%3D84b21db5ecb75144cde9ed44a5d10ce5997fcf5e3440ac84d5c55f9361514e92%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1067945482%22%7D" expand=1]

This is the first wave of panic and is usually because you learn that registration opens the exact same time as your super intense and strict class. Just like Chandler, you have succumbed to the fear.

2. The Excitement Stage

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F635953982014861431-1255955453_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=427&h=c39e584736e01463e6cce39a0c78d073a418f8c8aac3301d1356498f973ffe0e&size=980x&c=898496427 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F635953982014861431-1255955453_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D427%26h%3Dc39e584736e01463e6cce39a0c78d073a418f8c8aac3301d1356498f973ffe0e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D898496427%22%7D" expand=1]

You're ready. Your computer is up, your ideal schedule is ready to go and mentally you may not really know what's going on but it's okay, you got this!

3. The "OMG it is time" Stage

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F6359539841523292961215426743_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=519&h=d52224304235343303ede010e9eee740d03c4fc7bccfb6af3c1fe926c21acfd4&size=980x&c=1915654830 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F6359539841523292961215426743_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D519%26h%3Dd52224304235343303ede010e9eee740d03c4fc7bccfb6af3c1fe926c21acfd4%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1915654830%22%7D" expand=1]

You're calm cool and collected... until the clock turns and registration has officially opened. War has begun.

4. The Mind Control Stage

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F635953986577610816-1249508128_tumblr_ms1aoriFh11soayheo2_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=113&h=ec5a7bbc47281eaa9a560b078bdfa5b50b1e071d55b6624236cca522fbebcdf8&size=980x&c=1030425157 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F635953986577610816-1249508128_tumblr_ms1aoriFh11soayheo2_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D113%26h%3Dec5a7bbc47281eaa9a560b078bdfa5b50b1e071d55b6624236cca522fbebcdf8%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1030425157%22%7D" expand=1]

At this point you realize that you are not the only person attempting to register for classes and the Internet is acting rather slow. Wouldn't it just be easier if all of these classes in your mind just magically transferred onto the computer.

5. The "Internet Broke And So Did I" Stage

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F6359539880693909461288468696_chandler-blackout.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=841&h=177482d3ac8ae02c0f7d06ef8aacf6d1d17a66f729ddbf96d4c7cdab27044eab&size=980x&c=3598336502 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F6359539880693909461288468696_chandler-blackout.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D841%26h%3D177482d3ac8ae02c0f7d06ef8aacf6d1d17a66f729ddbf96d4c7cdab27044eab%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3598336502%22%7D" expand=1]

Yes. The Internet has broken and has taken your soul with it. "Service Unavailable" is probably the worst message to appear on your screen at this moment.

6. The "Back-up Life Plan" Stage

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F6359539919936354391294151960_anigif_enhanced-buzz-6972-1368221366-1_preview-1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=250&h=4b514b630c952ef50c9c311592183d80ce375b84249da5e852993b5ba5b7988d&size=980x&c=1600107417 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F6359539919936354391294151960_anigif_enhanced-buzz-6972-1368221366-1_preview-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D250%26h%3D4b514b630c952ef50c9c311592183d80ce375b84249da5e852993b5ba5b7988d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1600107417%22%7D" expand=1]

Well, the one class that you needed to take to graduate college is full. Might as well drop out and college and reevaluate your whole life now that you can't take that one single class. It's the only option left.

7. The "Everyone Is Evil" Stage

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F6359539946842921971224712908_635781957954588342-1007227290_hell.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=52&h=148dd909c01ba1526f75132c9a3bfd1caa3e387bbac9daf5b5ec9b16716eb204&size=980x&c=917783038 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F6359539946842921971224712908_635781957954588342-1007227290_hell.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D52%26h%3D148dd909c01ba1526f75132c9a3bfd1caa3e387bbac9daf5b5ec9b16716eb204%26size%3D980x%26c%3D917783038%22%7D" expand=1]

No, I do not want to hear about how you got every single class you wanted without any trouble!

8. The "Self-Loathing" Stage

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F635954002148200868-1720626024_635945566784454465-915551161_tumblr_mtwtnlHroW1qknju7o1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=815&h=a658e27a28e1f744abaeef9d93e5a34441846035193d0323e4f15a7e0aafe613&size=980x&c=1904977891 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F635954002148200868-1720626024_635945566784454465-915551161_tumblr_mtwtnlHroW1qknju7o1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D815%26h%3Da658e27a28e1f744abaeef9d93e5a34441846035193d0323e4f15a7e0aafe613%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1904977891%22%7D" expand=1]

You decide it's just easier to accept the reality that everything is clearly your fault. Why? Why did you decide to major in this specific subject that requires you to take these specific classes? Yes, it clearly is because you hate yourself and don't want any social life whatsoever.

9. The "Everything Will Be Okay" Stage

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F635954000548037367-1392064164_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=573&h=f362afe6d2f539e2006d4f1b259d5f2e6350913656088df1ea2ebc5b5c3c0352&size=980x&c=749469977 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F635954000548037367-1392064164_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D573%26h%3Df362afe6d2f539e2006d4f1b259d5f2e6350913656088df1ea2ebc5b5c3c0352%26size%3D980x%26c%3D749469977%22%7D" expand=1]

At least this is what you need to tell yourself as you sign up for classes that have absolutely nothing to do with your major or life choices. But it's all okay, right?

10. The Acceptance Stage

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F6359540043220930371823089112_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=180&h=308beba2dd192c92b6955aeceef8f81126a0ec96e613c8ad02dc8431fcd84b46&size=980x&c=544382338 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F6359540043220930371823089112_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D180%26h%3D308beba2dd192c92b6955aeceef8f81126a0ec96e613c8ad02dc8431fcd84b46%26size%3D980x%26c%3D544382338%22%7D" expand=1]

Well, nothing you can do now. You got some of the classes you wanted at least right? Time to let the stress and tension that just erupted within you for the past twenty minutes fade into the background for a few months before you're right back here again... that sounds like a good idea.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

2318
JMackeazy

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
