The Time Has Come For The End Of The Year

We are expected to move away from home for nine months to start a semi-new life, how could it not be a little emotional to have to start over again?

The Time Has Come For The End Of The Year
Emma Weisbrod

The time has come. The time has come to start packing it all up.The time has come to start giving out the hugs no one ever wants to end.The time has come to pack up all the things and all the memories from the past nine months into a few plastic storage bins from Walmart.

To my roommates,

Thank you for sharing my home away from home for the year. Thank you for staying up late with me talking and laughing, thank you for being such a safe and loving space. Living apart the next three months is going to be different, but it will make being back on campus in August even more exciting. Thank you for the way we greet each other when we return from anywhere, it can make some of the longest and most gruesome days just a little bit better, but the time has come.

To my friends,

Thank you for making it easy to become family when not too long ago we were complete strangers. Thank you for forcing me to try new things, pushing me out of my comfort zone, and always being there with open arms. Being away from home isn't easy, but good friends relieve this weight just enough. I've loved every memory made with each of you this year and can't wait for more next year, but the time has come.

To my campus,

Thank you for your beauty and for being the best decision I could have ever made. Thank you for all of your opportunities and new faces that you provide for me. I will miss everything about you for the next months of summer, but the time has come.

The time has come. The time has come to leave it all behind for a bit. The time has come to leave that small box of a room for the next lucky student in just a few months. The time has come to squeeze your people extra tight. The time has come to say goodbye for summer and already look forward to returning in August.

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.
