The 18 People You Were Over Winter Break

No, I still don't know what I want to do with my life.

The 18 People You Were Over Winter Break

The new semester is here! You're wishing you had more money after buying those textbooks, and you're rifling through those new syllabi. So with that, it's time we did a recap of Winter Break for you. It's shorter than summer break, but you probably did a lot of different things and acted in a lot of different ways over break.

But right now, you're probably getting settled in and ready for the new semester, along with reverting back to "college mode," so let's take a moment to acknowledge the 18 people you were over break.

1.) A sloth

I guess this isn't technically a person, but it should count. After all those late nights and all-nighters you had to take some time to sleep. And sleep you did. Like a lot. You probably woke up one day and didn't know if it was night or day.

2) The fat lazy bum who does nothing all day, every day

You finally decided to get out of bed, but still, after that long strenuous, and difficult semester it was time to indulge.

3.) The last minute shopper

Let's be honest, you didn't have time to buy gifts in college with all that work and then you had to sleep. It was the earliest you could even go shopping.

4.) A little kid

Christmas brings out the little kid in you again and for a moment you're excited like when you were in the 1st grade and Santa was coming. SAAANTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

5.) The respectful mature young adult

And then you had to compose yourself and act like the proper young adult that you are at the Christmas party, like this beautiful overly perfect picture of a family in this stock photo. After all, you're not that little kid anymore.

6.) The less than responsible young adult.

You probably got a little less than responsible afterwards. Maybe it was the punch, maybe there was some wine, maybe it was something else. Maybe you just couldn't take the "so what are going to do after college" questions anymore.

7.) The party animal

You had to get at least one big party in, right? You wouldn't be a college student without it, right?

8.) The low wage worker

Back to your low wage job, though. Except, you wish that you worked at an expensive enough restaurant where you had to dress this fancy. At least you're making money.

9.) The obsessed pet owner

Yeah, we've all seen all of your snapchats of your pets.

10.) The vacationer

You probably took some time to get away at some point.

11.) The young ambassador

And you likely had to take some time to go see some important speaker, travel somewhere with a relative, go to a conference, or some other miscellaneous important thing.

12.) The Growing Individual

And maybe over your extended break home with your parents you grew to understand them a little more. You're starting to see why they did the things they did for you, value them more, and see the wisdom that they have, despite the flaws that you may think you see from your younger perspective.

13.) The chauffeur

But your parents may have made you into a chauffeur for your younger siblings too.

14.) The Internet Junkie

And when you weren't doing any of that, you probably found yourself lost in the wondrous world of the internet. But really, you couldn't get enough of your pet that you had to look pets up online too?

15.) The old wise man.

With all that time off though, you probably took some time to contemplate life. Hopefully you came to a profound realization and weren't just sitting around wasting time, though.

16.) The budding changemaker

Perhaps from your meditations you came to an amazing idea or two, you budding changemaker you. You'll be changing the world and innovating in no time.

17.) The panicked student

But you had to put any of that off, because you took a moment to panic, remembering there were things that you actually wanted to get done.

18.) The college student

And finally, you were that guy who couldn't wait to go back to college. Man, what a break it was.

Have fun this semester!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
