The Last Few Weeks Of Fall Semester, As Told By Stranger Things
bloody disgusting

1. Knowing you are almost towards Thanksgiving and Christmas...

How can you not be filled with joy and enthusiasm when there are so many holiday hints in the air to distract you? Holiday drinks at Starbucks, Christmas music on the radio, and people putting up decorations everywhere. Right when you are focusing on your final exams and final papers, you are forced to quiet that inner child in you, and focus on the last few weeks.

2. The motivation goes down the drain...

It's easy to find yourself sleeping in more on the weekends, getting up a little later for class, and procrastinating a little bit longer for those classes. You stop going out on the weekends as much, and you spend more time staring at the wall or falling asleep in your room...

3. The coffee intake skyrockets

Caffeine becomes a necessity. Your need for hot drinks, at all times, increases as the weather becomes colder. You find the strength to bear your 8ams with those refreshing cups of God's nectar. You may even risk being late for class standing in those lines for your morning coffee...

4. Lazy dinners

Comfort food becomes more and more of a bad habit this time of the year, with all the stress and busy schedules. Those late nights filled with studying and long essays, are most likely also filled with a lot of comfort food and take-out. There is no time, or energy, to find a proper and healthy dinner, at a proper time.

5. Finally going home for the holidays

And it's the best part of the semester. The stress of the fall semester is somehow all worth it when you finally cross the finish line, and reunite with your family and friends from home. You appreciate home-cooked meals a little more, your home-town a little more, and your people a little more.

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.
