It is that time of the quarter again! Not midterm or finals week … I mean registration week! DePaul students will register for their spring classes next week, giving everyone the anxiety of finding classes and making sure they get the ones they want. Given the limited space in classes and the set registration times, the process of getting into classes can feel like "The Hunger Games." Here is how the film series showed that registration can be ever so grueling.

1. You know registration week is coming, and it just terrifies you. One of your friends will try to comfort you, but it does not work.

2. The course cart opens and you find the perfect classes. Don’t worry, it won’t last.

3. You keep on waiting to actually register for classes, and it just increases your anxiety.

4. Then you get to the actual week of registration and your school tries to make it exciting.

5. But no one is excited about having to register for classes.

6. Waiting for your time to register for classes that week puts you on edge. It is like waiting for the games to start.

7. But then you see that one of the classes you wanted is now closed and you can’t register for it. You scream at the thought of not having that perfect schedule.

8. You find some other class you can take, but it is not a good one. You realize you have no option but to take it, so you put it in your course cart.

9. Your registration time comes and the madness ensues.

10. But after you register for your classes, you feel like you survived the week.

11. The bad news is that you will have to do this all again next quarter.

Happy Registration Week! And may the odds (of getting all your classes) be ever in your favor!

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.
