Back to school shopping can get expensive and insanely overwhelming. I never knew or even thought about what I needed before I overheard my friends discussing the pros and cons of different steamers and dust busters.

Once I finally realized how late to the game I was, it was far too soon to plan anything. I knew I would have very few choices; I could only hope for the best. I finally made it to the infamous store, where Adam Sandler's character in Click took a nap that lasted for what seemed like an eternity, Bed Bath & Beyond, and it was an experience I will treasure for the rest of my life...not.

When you first step into Bed Bath & Beyond and feel completely overwhelmed by the rows and columns of items you definitely don’t need, but desperately want.

When you have to ask yourself do you really need a cute car cup holder, when you don’t even own a car or have a license?

You find the first item on your checklist and suddenly you can see everything coming together in your favor...

Until you realize the store has ran out of the most essential item on your list.

Finding a wonderful employee to help you on your quest:

As you're leaving, you see an item in the corner of your eye that you absolutely need to have.

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.
