The Week After Spring Break As Told By Michael Scott

"I knew exactly what to do. But in a much more real sense, I had no idea what to do."

The Week After Spring Break As Told By Michael Scott

Returning from spring break is never easy. Whether you go home, go on vacation, or stay on campus and relax, it's always hard to get back into the grind of tests, papers, homework assignments, and early morning classes. The first week back at school after break is the worst, so try to keep in mind what's important as you struggle though. The weekend gets closer every day.

Here's a list of some of the realities that you are faced with upon your return to school as told by our favorite boss, Michael Scott.

1. Rewarding yourself for actually managing to get out of bed in the morning:

The early bird gets the worm.

2. Trying to write the paper that you neglected over the break:

Isn't it just lovely how your brain pretends to forget the entire English language right when you have a paper due?

3. Hoping that your midterm grades are good:

It's time to see how you did on all of those tests that you took back when you were so excited for spring break that you could barely focus.

4. Realizing that your assigned reading is way longer than you expected:

You've got one page down and 399 to go.

5. It's also nearly impossible to understand:

Your fingers are crossed that there's no pop quiz.

6. Trying to schedule a time to work on a group project when everyone in your group is equally as swamped as you are:

Suddenly, you understand the phrase "it's like herding cats."

7. Presenting your group project in front of your class the next day:

At least you got your names right.

8. Getting sick from not sleeping enough, then missing more class and falling behind:

You were supposed to learn the new material in all of your classes, but you learned how many cough drops you can take in one day instead.

9. Going to office hours to try and understand what you missed:

It's not that bad to ask your professor to explain something six times, right?

10. Trying to finish your last homework assignment of the week:

Is it too late to go back to office hours?

11. Realizing that you've actually made it to the weekend:

You are an inspiration.

All jokes aside, education is a very important and beneficial privilege that we have. We should all work hard at what we do to get the best out of our college years!

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.
