If You're Waiting For The Future, Just Hold On, It'll Be Worth It

It's hard to wait, but I promise it's worth it.

If You're Waiting For The Future, Just Hold On, It'll Be Worth It

Waiting is hard. By the end of high school, I was going insane because all I wanted was to leave. Like most teenagers, I was ready to go to college and finally start learning things that I was actually interested in.

Dragging myself to school by 7:45 a.m. every day was pretty much impossible. I still have a lot of friends from my high school, but I remember going into school every day and thinking about how much I felt like I was wasting my time. Other than seeing my friends and going to rehearsals for choir and musical, I had no reason to go to school.

I was stuck in an annoying routine that I couldn't get out of. Every single day was a challenge of its own because I knew that once I got to college I'd be so much happier.

I can't express to you enough how true that is.

It's a cliché, I know. The idea that college is going to magically fix all of your problems and you're going to be a totally different person once you get there is so overdone. But, that's exactly what happened.

I wanted to move out of my hometown more than anyone. I've only ever lived in the same little town in Central Pennsylvania. It's shaped a lot of who I am today, but I had learned all I needed to and I've seen all there is to see. It was time for me to go, and it's as simple as that.

As soon as I got to school, my world opened up. I went to a school where I didn't know anyone on purpose. No one had any expectations for me, and I was free to be literally whoever I wanted.

The people I met no longer could judge me based on my friends or who I knew or the activities I did. For the first time ever, I was just Cassity, and that's amazing.

I waited for that feeling for four years. Trust me when I say it's worth it to see all of your hard work pay off. It's hard to see the end of the tunnel, but I promise it's there. Change is going to happen and it's going to be better than anything you could have ever imagined.

The future is on its way, all you have to do is wait.

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.

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.
