Things I've Learn From Being Back Home

Things I've Learn From Being Back Home

Being back home can remind you a lot of the things you are missing being in school. You see all of your old friends and a lot of your family and you'll learn all the things that you're missing out on while away at school. You could talk to you family every day while at school but you would still learn a lot of things when you get home. Sometimes the things you learn are good and other times they're not that great. The things you learn, however, will make you miss home and make you want it to be summer as soon as possible.

1. Your family is crazy.

We all have crazy families but we love them. We miss that at school and sometimes you forget about just how crazy and funny they can be at times. Sure, sometimes it can be a bit annoying at times but overall, they're the ones that make you laugh the most. They're also the ones with all the questions every time you come home. You're used to the questions now though and they're just funny at this point. Your family is who will get you through your college years.

2. Your friends are always there.

If you're bored at home you can always count on your friends to be there for you. Being home gives you all the perfect reason to hang out and see each other every day since might be a few months till you see each other again. Every time you come home, it feels like you and your friends are becoming closer and closer. Now, you all are counting down the day till you see each other again or summer. It will come sooner than you think and you will see them again soon.

3. Things around town aren't the same anymore.

Things are changing around your hometown. Sure when you were in town all the time things changed but you were there for the changes. Now you look around and see random pop-ups of changes all around town. Maybe a tree was taken down or a new store was built. The changes are shaking and make you feel like you aren't a part of the town anymore. You are, though. The town changes just like a person changes. No matter how long you're away, things are always changing.

Changes and new things are good to come home to. It may seem like you're distant from everything now but you're still apart of everything going on. You'll back for a longer time soon enough and then you'll be begging to leave again. That's all apart of the college experience. You'll miss home and then you'll miss school. But you'll come to love being home with family and friends. But don't get home sick, enjoy the time you're at school, you only have four or so more years of it before you're thrown into the real world.

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.
