The End Of The Year As Told By "Friends"

So, no one told you life was gonna be this way...

The End Of The Year As Told By "Friends"

Finally, there is only about a month left till this college semester comes to a close. Seniors are preparing for graduation and freshman are thankful for surviving this year of change. The spring semester seems to go by so fast but there is still so much left to be done. I cannot completely describe my first year but the word "different" definitely seems to cover a majority of it. To better express this entire year, especially as it is wrapping up, I can relate it to one of my favorite shows of all time: Friends.

1. Trying to convince yourself you can complete all your work

Everyone knows the feeling when you have 3 papers, 2 assignments, a presentation, finals, and 8 quizzes to complete in the next two weeks. This semester is filled with tons of assigned work from your professors. If I did not procrastinate so much I could probably finish at a decent time.

2. Enjoying the spring weather

Finally winter and its freezing temperatures has come to an end. It will feel so nice to walk around campus without my hands feeling like icicles. Soon it will be time to sit out by the pool and work on trying to add color to my pasty skin.

3. Figuring out how to spend the rest of your life (particularly seniors).

There is still tons of things to prepare for as the school year comes to an end. You need to make sure to tie up any loose ends. Why doesn't adulthood come with an instruction manual?

4. When you finish your last test

It is about time. As finals come to an end all your hard works have paid off and you don't have to worry about trying to prepare for the next lecture. Finals are exhausting but there is no better feeling than when you turn in the last one for the semester.

5. Class. Registration.

I don't even like waking up for 9 am lecture, it is bad enough to get up early and try to snag a spot in your classes. There is meticulous planning that goes into prepping for registration day and nothing is worse than having a class filled, having to take a late night class, or being waitlisted. Lets have a moment of silence for those who battled it out trying to create the perfect schedule and failed.

6. Saying goodbye to your newly found friends

If I haven't said it a million times, it has been one crazy year. However, here's to all the new friends you made that helped you along the journey. I know there are many more memories to come but until then, I hope life stays kind to you.

I wish all the seniors the best of luck in their future careers as this semester finishes. College is already flying by like high school did but there is still so much to look forward to. Just a few more weeks and summer vacation begins.

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.
