5 Things About Bama You WON'T Miss Over The Summer
Samantha Shinn

With summer break arriving, students will be leaving for home, vacation or internships until its time for their return in August. So I have compiled a list of things we college students will not miss during our time away from Tuscaloosa.

1. Cooking for ourselves every night

Those of us who are known by name at the food court or has no meal swipes will especially be happy about this over the summer

2. McFarland Traffic in the morning and afternoon

At 8 am and around 5 p.m. on weekdays when you either need backroads or leave for your destination ten minutes early just so you can arrive on time

3. The students who walk three across on the sidewalks

When your stuck behind or heading to a group of students who decide there allowed to all walk next to each other on the destination and won't move over at all.

4. Looking for parking on campus

The struggles of finding parking near the bus stop or your building after the first morning classes started as all the good parking spots are already taken or you have to battle another car for that one great spot.

5. Class

No more waking up early to be in class or staying up all night just to study

Even though this will only be a small break it is still one that is needed. But in the end no matter what we all can not wait until August when we are back to rolling with the tide.

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.

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.
