Your End-Of-Semester Shenanigans Go Something Like This

The struggle isn't the assignments, it's finding the motivation to finish the assignments.

Your End-Of-Semester Shenanigans Go Something Like This

When you first start out your semester, you're usually on your "A" game. You're reading what's assigned, taking notes and preparing yourself for any quiz or test that may come your way. That's the ideal way a college student should do things. However, not every college student is ideal nor mentally prepared for what's going to hit them towards the end of the semester.

At the beginning of the semester, everyone sets the goal for themselves that they're going to be this good and hard-working student. They plan out how they're going to do their homework, that they're going to study for their exams and that they're not going to be as bad they were last semester. A system that may for the beginning weeks of the semester, but can slowly fade away when work starts pilling up and you catch yourself becoming lazy. It comes to the point where you find yourself becoming lazy and not having any motivation to do your work.

Once you find yourself becoming lazy, it's important to not overwhelm yourself with a lot of work. You shouldn't leave any papers or papers for the night before. Try to plan out your last weeks with what assignments or work you're going to get done. That way, you'll be able to get a lot done without feeling the pressure of running out of time. It's also important to not allow yourself to break down in the process of getting everything done.

There's nothing wrong with taking breaks and taking time for yourself. Just with the consideration that you have work to be done. So it'd be best to start everything early and break down days and times with what you're going to get done. There isn't a perfect way to handle the ending of the semester, but there is a way to get through it. It's all about not pilling up your work and stretching out your work thru days and good time management.

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.
