The End of the Semester as Told by Leslie Knope

With the end of the semester quickly approaching, we are at that point where there is no turning back. And we all feel that pain.

Like when we're just casually making our way through the semester, and suddenly final assignments appear out of nowhere.

We all want to scream.

We try to pretend it's all a dream and fly away.....

...and then we realize.

Although, we still had that tiny bit of hope.

Then someone tells you there is a final presentation that goes along with the final paper.

*nervous laughter*

So, we resign ourselves to studying and preparing our final papers and projects.

Because it has to be done.

But then our professors try to assign additional work on top of that.

And we enlist our friends just to make sure we stay sane.

They're the only way we'll make it through to the other side.

The professors then hand out the review sheets, and we don't remember half of the lessons on them.

Did we actually learn that this semester?

Then someone asks you how your studying is going.

And, just like that, finals week arrives and it is not pretty.

It feels nearly impossible to survive.

Eventually, though, somehow we make it through to the other side.

Semi-alive at least.

We finally get to catch up on all the things we missed out on.

Like sleep.

Then, the time comes where we realize we are done.

We can finally be at ease...

...until we realize we have to do it all again next semester.

Good luck everyone, and stay strong.

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.
