The First Week Of Classes Told By The Real Housewives

The first week of classes is seemingly the easiest when it comes to work, but the hardest emotionally. We're all adjusting to being back on campus and starting to get into the swing of things. Even with all of this stress, we still have smiling faces and positive attitudes because we're just excited to be back at our home away from home.

Having such a large campus is a blessing and a curse because now is the time we get to figure out where our classes are -- sometimes in buildings we have never set foot in.

You wake up on the first day and some of your stuff is still in boxes and you're not sure where you put that one t-shirt you want to wear. Then you spill your coffee on that shirt and think to yourself:

Getting to class is no joy ride. If you don't have a car, that means you either walk, bike or take the bus. You know you're only going over the syllabus, which takes about 20 minutes; meanwhile it took you about half an hour to get from where you live to your seat in the room. After those 20 minutes, the professor tries to start with the first lecture and you can't help but say:

Not only that, but your professor also tells you that you will never have to read the $200 book you bought for the class and all hell breaks loose:

So instead of paying attention to what's going on in the front of the room like you're supposed to, you decide to look around and see if you know anyone. You see this girl from one of your classes last semester, then you see one of your brothers/sisters and the look on their face is priceless. You immediately think:

After a few minutes you start to actually look through the syllabus and it's so much work and the due dates are so close together. It blows your mind how many points you lose for not turning something in on this date or that date. It's just all too much:

You cannot wait to get out of that lecture hall and on to the next one so you can just get the day over with. So when class is finally over, you're like:

Once you go through the first five days, get all of the syllabi and figure out what books you need to return, all you want to do is go out with your friends you haven't seen all summer and enjoy your college town that you missed so much.

Every returning college kid is excited about coming back to campus, and if you're not, then you didn't pick the right school. No matter how stressful the first week is, it's only going to get worse throughout the semester, so you might as well live it up before the real work 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.
