How You Will Feel At Each Point in the Semester

It's pretty much how every semester goes.

How You Will Feel At Each Point in the Semester

The beginning of the semester is no doubt a very exciting time. You are getting started with all new classes, progressing closer and closer to that degree you are at college to get in the first place. However, this excitement is sure to fade when you are sitting in the library a week later cranking out three essays due the next day at 8 AM. Here is what you are sure to be feeling at each point during the semester:

1. Weeks 1 - 2

As mentioned before, it is the beginning of the new semester. You have all new subjects, professors, and even classmates. It is hard not to be optimistic and excited about what the next 15 weeks are going to have in store for you.

2. Weeks 3 - 5

By now, you are a few weeks into the semester. The tests seem to be coming in chunks and there is a decent amount of homework, but you haven't ripped your hair out yet so thats good!

3. Weeks 6-9

Now midterms are rolling around. Can they all just be in the same week? Of course not, that would make too much sense! Bet you regret taking that 300-level history class now don't ya?

4. Weeks 10-14

Thanksgiving break provides a much needed rest from the stress of classes. You are almost at the end and although there are final projects and papers, you can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

5. Week 15

Finals provide both a new stress and also a great relief. You may have huge tests that carry major weight on your grade, but you also have no more class and all other work is done. Take this time to get through your finals in one piece and savor those last moments with your professor.

Congratulations! You made it to the end of the semester. Take your much-deserved break and get ready to start the cycle all over again.

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.
