3 Tips To Start The Semester Off With A Bang

The start of the semester is hard, ya know?

3 Tips To Start The Semester Off With A Bang

1. Start making your habits for the semester early.

So you want to stay organized, get a planner or put everything in your phone calendar. Wanna work out more?? It helps if you start that before school begins so that you develop that habit quicker. Wanna get involved in something on campus? Research it before school starts and, most importantly, put your big girl or big boy pants on and GO!! The toughest part is going. Everything else comes easy. It takes 21 days to make a habit stick with you, according to science and my mom. If you start early, then you'll develop your habit much quicker!


2. Get to class.

Going to class sounds obvious, but I know lots of people who sign up for classes, never show up to them, and don't get the grades they want. If you go to class, you're more likely to actually learn the material, more likely to get something out of the class, and you're more likely to SUCCEED in the class- which is what everyone wants. You're paying a lot of money to be in the classes you're taking, so get your money's worth people!!

3. Get excited!

You have a new start, not just because of the new year, but also because you're putting yourself in a new routine, with new classes, and new people that could become pretty good friends! You have an opportunity to network more with people on your campus, and you have the ability to build even more relationships with people that you may not have talked to if you hadn't taken the class you are taking. Maybe you'll make a new best friend, meet a boyfriend, or meet a professor that becomes a mentor! You never know, and that's why you should be excited and ready to start another semester.

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.
