Top 5 Things I Miss From High School

Now that I'm graduating, I have been thinking back on what I truly miss about high school.

Top 5 Things I Miss From High School

1. My friends, obviously.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I haven't really gotten to see my friends. I miss eating lunch with them every day and making jokes in classes. Aside from a Krispy Kreme trip to get free donuts with some friends, I haven't left the house much either.

2. Lunches

Yes, the food could be a bit sketchy at times, but I still miss the routine. Chicken Patty Wednesdays were more reliable than anything else at school. The food was consistently okay. Now that school isn't in session, my eating habits have gotten all kinds of messed up.

3. Band

I love music so much, so not being in band class every other day is tough. I miss all the bus rides and funny memories, which are included in the coveted "funny folder" that gets passed down every time the holder graduates.

4. Teachers

I know, I know. Teachers are terrible and give out homework and all that, but I had several teachers that were there for me when my own friends weren't. I had about three teachers that I could regularly talk with to have mini therapy sessions.

5. Sporting Events

Now, coming from a small town, we absolutely love to go to sporting events to support our players. I have done many sports over the years, but even when I'm not participating on the court or field, there is a certain energy that you can feel when the crowd truly supports the players.

Now, those are the top 5 things that I missed from high school, but I look forward to making new friends and memories as I move on to the next phase of my life.

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.
