The First Week Of Tests/Quizzes As Told By "Parks and Recreation"

It's no longer all fun and games.

The First Week Of Tests/Quizzes As Told By "Parks and Recreation"
E! Online

The first few weeks of school have come to an end. All of the syllabus quizzes and ungraded class discussions are coming to a screeching halt. For a second, school wasn’t so bad, in fact it was somewhat enjoyable but then reality set in and we were reminded that school is all about working hard and remembering how dumb we really are. Oh it’s also about being partnered with the worst people on Earth to complete an impossible task in an insanely short amount of time. To help motivate us through the first tests, quizzes and group projects I compiled some advice and understanding from the “Parks and Recreation” gang.

1. The first week of school when it's all easy.

2. Just took the syllabus quiz and got a 100.

3. The teacher announces the first test date and it's forever away.

4. Wait, it's been three weeks and now that test is here.

5. And the professor just reminded the class that the test will not be online.

6. I guess it's time to cram in some last minute studying.

7. Oh and you were just assigned a group project.

8. It's Day One of the group project and all your group members already suck.

9. Okay, I guess we'll just have to procrastinate on the project and get back to studying for the test.

10. Just got an email from the teacher saying half of the test is short-answer questions.

11. Headed to class to to take this test and evaluate my smartness.

12. You start to answer the first question and realize you don't even know what some of the words in the question mean.

13. Wait how many days are left to withdraw without academic penalty?

14. That moment halfway through the test when you realize your happiness in life does not depend on the outcome of this test.

16. At the end of the day you at least know you have the support of the Parks and Rec. gang.

Good luck to everyone who is starting their testing for the semester. Although it may be difficult but if we stay focused in the end it will lead to success. May we remain: as determined as Leslie Knope, confident as Tom Haverford, relaxed as Ron Swanson, sarcastic as April Ludgate, positive as Andy Dwyer, sassy as Donna Meagle, loyal as Ann Perkins, self-motivated as Chris Traeger, nerdy as Ben Wyatt, and nothing like Gary/Jerry/Larry Gergich. And in the words of Leslie Knope let us always remember our priorities, "we have to remember what's important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, work. But work has to come third".

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.

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.
