Thoughts Every College Student Has At Least Once

There are so many different types of colleges and universities. Some are more liberal, while others are more conservative. Some schools are private, and others are public or run by the state. Some students may prefer to go to a two-year community college, while others may prefer a four-year school. Even with all of these differences, one thing remains the same… and that is that nearly all of these students experience the same thoughts and feelings. Many of us share the same experiences that may cause us to ask questions or groan with irritation.

For anyone who was in college or who currently is attending, many of you may experience de ja vu.

  • “When was the last time I washed this shirt? Would anyone notice if I wore this shirt two days in a row? I really need to do laundry.”
  • “Wait, when is this assignment due? Where is my syllabus? I can’t find anything in this mess of a backpack. I really need to get my life together!”
  • “I am starving. I should probably just grab a piece of fruit or a salad. I’m definitely getting pudgy, but pizza and Chinese food sounds really good right now. And they deliver!”
  • “How do I maintain my GPA, keep a job, do my homework, have a social life, get eight hours or sleep, and take care of myself? This is way too much!”
  • “What did the professor say? I don’t understand. No one else is raising their hands or asking any questions. Do I go on not knowing what is happening or do I risk sounding like an idiot in front of my peers?”
  • “I wish I could go back to my freshman year when all of my courses were easy and my grade point average could be saved.”
  • Sees something you want at the store: “I really want this, but I can not afford it.”
  • “My resume looks like garbage. What format should this be written in? I have like no work experience. No one is going to want to hire me.”
  • “Did I pick the right major? Am I going to be able to get a job with this? Can I really see myself doing this for the rest of my life. I am pretty sure my professor thinks I am an idiot.”
  • “I need more caffeine. I haven’t slept in three days, but I have five papers, three exams, two extra credit lectures, and an advisor meeting tomorrow! Help!”
  • “I think I am going to die!”
  • “My room looked so good when I moved in. Now, I can not see my floor. I should really clean my room, but I do not really feel like it.”
  • “I have an exam tomorrow, and I should really study, but I would rather binge-watch Netflix instead.”
  • “I am just going to take a twenty minute power nap.” *Wakes up six hours later*

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.
