7 Reasons I Literally Can't Wait To Go Back To Houghton College

Summer isn't the only time you can have fun!

7 Reasons I Literally Can't Wait To Go Back To Houghton College

This summer has been a long one for me. I couldn't find a job, which left me with no structure in my day to day life. Based upon that all I've done this summer is read. Yes, reading is great, but I need more in my life! I want to see my friends every day. I want work. I want challenges. My summer at home has provided me with none of that, some of the things I'm excited to go back to college are...

1. My Friends

It has been unbelievably hard to go months without seeing some of my best friends. They are my support group who consistently make me laugh and I can't wait to see what new memories we create.

2. Walking

I miss walking everywhere on campus. I find it a pain to have to get in my car to get food or see a friend. I love being able to walk right out of my dorm to grab a snack and say "Hi" to a few people along the way.

3. Class

It's odd, I know, but I want to get back in the classroom! I love being challenged, so taking the max amount of credits was smart... right? I just love to learn new things.

4. Dorm Life

I'm moving to a different dorm this year, one which has the stigma of having more outgoing people living there. I'm excited to get out of my comfort zone an meet a lot more people. Plus I have two great new roomies that I can't wait to live with.

5. Houghton

Some people hate the small town experience, but I love it. Houghton may be in the middle of nowhere, but I like the fact that I don't have many distractions. The few distractions I have are the beautiful scenery surrounding me.

6. New People

I can't wait to meet new people. Whether it be freshman, transfers, or people I just haven't run into I can't wait to know you. Each person you know adds something to your life, which makes living on campus a blessing because you have so much added to your life.

7. Activities

Yes, a dry campus can still have fun! I love going to sporting events, and random little celebrations the college has. Homecoming will be soon and I have fond memories of it last year, I hope to make this one even better.

Wow I have so much adrenaline now. I want to move in tomorrow! Sadly I have to wait a month. I should also appreciate home and my family while I have it (and the good food). See you in a month friends!

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.
