The 10 Stages of Writing a Paper in College

  1. Reading the assignment and realizing that you have no idea where to begin. After reading it a couple of times you still are confused. Then you turn to your fellow classmates to help decipher the assignment.

2. After consulting the calendar you strategically plan the latest day you can start the paper and hand it in on time. Even if you promise yourself to outline out it in stages, it ever works out.

3. You leave the assignment in a folder in your desk. It gets forgotten about for some time, as you hope it you will magically come up with a genius idea.

4.During one class, your professor reminds you that there is two weeks before the paper is due. In a panic, you realize you need to get on that.

5. That night you take out the folder. You start figuring out an outline and theme for the paper. You do your research and think that is a good start. Then, you succumb to the desire to sleep.

6. The next day you wake up prepared to be productive. You turn on your computer, drink some coffee and start writing.

7. About an hour into it, the internet distracts you. Your start to jam out to some Demi Lovato jams and get lost in Buzzfeed articles.

8. Startled, you try to get back on task knowing that you need to turn in a stellar paper.

9. Finally it is finished and you save the document. Excited you spend the rest of the night staying up with your fiends watching TV or hanging out.

10. The day it is due you realize 10 minute before class the paper is still not printed. In a rush you run to the computer lounge to print the document. You run and barley make it to class on time.

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.
