Can you BE anymore stressed?

Well, here we are. The end of the semester is finally upon us. We can see the light at the end of the tunnel. We just have a few more weeks left before we can enjoy the sweet freedom of summer. The beach, bathing suits, bonfires, road trips, and all other great things that come along with our 3-month break are finally within reach. The only down side is that the last few weeks are hell – assignments, papers, finals, studying, it’s all stuff we have no motivation left to do, but our GPA depends on it. All my fellow college students can relate to the bittersweet end of spring semester.

1. When your professors actually give the final assignments you 100% knew you were going to get.

2. When you see the amount of work you have to do between now and the end of the semester.

3. When your professors give you the unnecessary reminder that this is no time to be slacking off.

4. Trying to keep a positive attitude so you don’t cry like…

Positive vibes only, right?

5. When you know you should have tried harder during the semester, but you can’t change it now.

Life is too short to have regrets.

6. When you actually have a decent professor that doesn’t assign both a final paper and a written final.

While we would prefer neither, we are mature enough to realize that's unrealistic so one or the other will do. There is no need for both.

7. When your friends finish their semester before you and brag about how happy they are to be done.

8. Trying to raise your GPA last minute like…

9. When you realize you’re going to be in a bathing suit soon and you’ve done nothing to prepare your summer body.

10. When you’re stu(dying) and wonder if it’s even worth it.

But then you realize if you fail out of school you don't have a plan B...okay, back to stu(dying) it is.

11. Showing up outside your professors office after your professor said, "Don't show up to my office the last week of the semester and ask for extra credit." to ask for extra credit like...

It's worth a shot, right?

12. When you’ve been studying all day and someone asks if you’re alright.

13. When you're on your 11th hour of studying in the library and you're starting to go a little crazy.

14. When you finally walk out of your last final.

Thank God. I am now finally free to enjoy the summer!

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.
