9 Gifs That Sum Up What Registration Is Really Like

I experienced my first registration this past week with three roommates that can agree with these. It was honestly the most hectic sixty seconds of my life. Here is a glimpse of what registration is really like:

1. May the odds be ever in your favor

There may be 8 open seats, but all 23 of us want that class.

2. Making sure everyone is awake at the crack of dawn

The four alarms may all go off at the same time, but just to make sure, you go to extremes to wake your roommates and yourself up.

3. You become the world's fastest typer, and your brain goes insane

Looking at the numbers and your screen back and forth, you may as well become an accountant.

4. When the clock strikes 6:59, you DO NOT BLINK, you just refresh.

in the words of Europe, It's the FINAL COUNTDOWN!

5. If your internet is slow, you panic and scream until it works

It makes you feel like you are not going to get any classes you need or want, and you may as well just cry.

6. The actual preparation of creating your schedule

the many hours of seeing what times work best with other classes, your work schedule, your napping time, etc.

7. Getting waitlisted for almost all of your classes

It's the worst when you do it at 7 on the dot, but you somehow get waitlisted. (It's even worse if you are not in the top fifteen). All you wanted was to have your schedule.

8. When you don't have any 8 am's or Friday classes

You get to sleep in, AND you get a longer weekend.

9. When it is all over and you can happily go back to sleep

unless you drank too much coffee like I did.

If you are in college or have experienced this, you probably know exactly how all of these feel. If you are coming to college, prepare yourselves. Until then, good luck with midterms and finals so you can do it all again next 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.

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.
