The 5 Best F's To Receive After Finals

What makes all the studying worth it

The 5 Best F's To Receive After Finals
Sara Salvo

So you've finished your finals. After submitting that last paper or taking that last exam there's not much left to do but pack-up and go home. The stress is pretty much gone and all there is to do is enjoy the Holidays and wait for grades to come out. But with going home comes SO much to look forward to. After a stressful semester full of late nights and challenging assignments, this month-long winter break can be exactly what you need. So, while you may be concerned with what the outcome of your finals don't be discouraged. Coming home will provide you with five F's that are actually enjoyable to receive (lol). Here they are:

1. Food

Dining hall food gets the job done but nothing beats a home-cooked meal. Bonus points because you don't have to change out of your pajamas to go eat breakfast or worry about the hours your own kitchen will be open.

2. Friends

Whether you've stayed in touch everyday of the year or maybe lost touch a little bit nothing beats getting your high school squad back together. True friends are the ones you can be away from for months at a time and then get back together and talk as if no time passed at all.

3. Family

No one loves you more or is happier to have you home than your family. You can actually spend time with them doing fun things instead of studying now that the semester is over.

4. Free Time

WHAT WILL YOU DO OTHER THAN HOMEWORK? Read a book? Meditate more? Take up knitting? Sleep? Regain your sanity? Who knows? Who cares? The important thing is you have an entire month or more to do WHATEVER YOU WANT. Beautiful.

5. Furry Companions

They're always excited when you get home. They love you. They don't talk to you. And they give the best cuddles. Additionally, you can always call up your parents when you're away but you can't talk to your dog. That's what makes coming home to them after a long time away so great.

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.
