Thoughts College Students Have While Walking When It's Hot Out

"Alright, here I go... Hope I don't burst into flames."

Thoughts College Students Have While Walking When It's Hot Out

The first few weeks of college in Michigan can be pretty brutal between the heat and humidity. This one-two punch makes it even harder to walk to class than it already is. Here is some commentary on what it feels like to walk to class when it's 80+ degrees and 90% humidity.

I just got out of the shower and I am already sweating profusely.

Why don't dorm rooms have air conditioning?!

Do I have to wear clothes?

Can I just go in my bathing suit?

Fine, I'll wear pants... But I won't like it!

How am I sweating this much? There are three fans blowing on me! I haven't even left yet!

Alright, here I go... Hope I don't burst into flames.

If I burst into flames, maybe I'll automatically pass all my classes.

The light! It burns! Where are my sunglasses?

I bet I look so cool now.

Okay, twenty steps down, half a mile to go.

Why are my headphones always tangled, I just want to listen Iggy Azalea? No one will ever know.

And I got caught.

Whatever, I don't care.

If I'm going to be sweaty, I'm at least going to rock out.

Okay, maybe I care a little bit.

MOTHER... of pearl. That car almost hit me! That jerk! Watch where you're... wait, I have a test next week... Never mind! Come back and hit me! You can have all thirteen cents I have in my pocket!

Ugh, he drove away. I guess I have to take that test now.

Oh my god, I am sweating so much, it's so sticky out here. I want to lay down on the ground right here.

I wonder if I tried to hitch hike if someone would pick me up.

I wonder if someone picked me up if they would immediately kill me or wait a few minutes and then kill me.

My mom would be so disappointed in me if I died trying to hitch hike to class.

I wonder how much a mop costs.

I wonder if the bro comes with the ped or if you have to acquire the bro for your bro-ped separately.

Someone's gotta ask the big questions.

Oh my god, I can see it, my building. It's beautiful! It has air!

This is the greatest moment of my young life, I'm finally standing in air conditioning.

I feel gross.

Oh well, everyone else looks gross too.

I wonder if I could make the argument that these conditions are bad for my educational experience.

Note to self: google that.

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.
