5 Thoughts All College Kids Have During April

No seriously, I have how many assignments?

5 Thoughts All College Kids Have During April
Megan Coltharp

There is something about spring semester that brings out a true laziness and inability to learn in most students (myself, included). Finals may be awful during the fall semester - but everything seems far more impossible mid-April for some reason.

All those assignments that you kept telling yourself weren't due for a few months are all due... tomorrow.

Somehow you have 6 exams, 4 projects, and 12 assignments all due in the next few days and your "wait till the last minute" policy has really backfired this year. At this point, you are calculating what you ACTUALLY need to turn in and how much effort you should really put in.

I mean, I'm writing an article that clearly is me procrastinating from the mountain of assignments I am staring at currently.

To waste another 5 minutes of your time so you can push off that semester-long project you just started, here are 5 thoughts all college students have during April:

1. How many questions can one ask a TA 5 minutes before the test?

At this point, you really better pray that your TA still likes you enough to answer your 552 questions.

2. Oh, I totally got this. No biggie.

My colored pens are out and I'm ready to learn 8 weeks of material in 48 hours.

3. Why did I sign up for this torture?

I think my major has decided that I'm not cut out for it. I think this is it.

5. Does the syllabus say anything about extra credit?

Me talking to my grades with only a few assignments left to turn in and not much hope left.

Well, you've officially wasted a few more minutes of your time instead of actually finishing your work. Now, get off social media and knock it out. Only a few more weeks left until it's all over. One way or another.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
