Back To School, As Told By Informercials

"BUT WAIT, there's GIFs!"

Back To School, As Told By Informercials

It's August, which means that students across the country have started moving into their new homes for the year. However, students, beware the dangers of a new house/apartment!

1. Your home could have been damaged over the summer. Open the door with care on your first arrival.

2. You could be mauled by a tape measure while trying to put up those cute curtains.

3. The bathroom floor could be plotting with the shower curtain against you.

4. A tupperware army could be waiting to ambush you in the kitchen.

5. Don't even bother with cooking; you'll destroy everything you hold dear.

6. In fact, just go ahead and leave the kitchen. You can only make it worse at this point.

7. You and your roommates will be almost too awkward to function.

8. Attempting to do your laundry will only result in agony and grief.

9. You could break your wrist trying to clean your curtainless windows.

10. Be careful when flinging your sunglasses off outside; the sun may blind you.

11. Additionally, make sure to avoid the pool when throwing your laptop in frustration.

12. And forget about washing your car; the experience would kill you. Just stay inside.

13. Don't try any Pinterest DIY projects, even your trusty hammer will leave holes in the wall.

You may ask, "Why me? What did I do to deserve such a horrible fate?"

"Why can't I ever seem to eat my chips in peace?"


My advice is to take a few deep breaths and dance in a snuggie. It seemed to work for these people.

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.
