Thoughts that popes into the head of a head of a half way done college student

Mid-Way Through

As I sit in my dorm watching Philomena getting in the mood for my Irish Drama and Performance class, I realized something:

I am half done with college.

Several thoughts have popped into my head at that moment. Many I can't write down to due to personal reasons . Time is a funny thing when you stop to think about it. My favorite bands have been together for almost 20 years . T.V shows have either ended or going on for more then years. Here are the top five thoughts that have popped into my head :

1. Holly Sugar Honey Ice Tea

Take the last four words, and take the first letter from each of them. That was the first thought when the thought crept into my head. It seems like just yesterday I was moving into my freshman dorms. Now, it three weeks into my second semester of my sophomore year. Time had flown by.

2. I feel old

I know I 'm not but, I still feel it. I sided with the villain in a kids movie; that's when you know you're getting old. Though I will admit, I was tempted to go to Chuck cheese with a bunch of people but decided against. They never said you don't have to stop being a kid at heart. Plus, I will be one of the first one in the bouncy house castle.

3. A-lot of things have happen.

From the start of my college experience, things have happened. Some have been fantastic like seeing Hamilton last year meeting the cast, and also meeting Jamie Hymdman one of my t.v personalities since I was kid, in-turn crossing something off my bucket list. There have been some other fantastic things that have happened but, those are for another list or too personal to share. On the other end of the spectrum. I lost my grandmother. It had slipped into my head as well because this past week was the one year anniversary of her death. But instead of being sad for her, I raise my Shirley Temple to her.

4. I've changed

Anyone who has know me or is close to me knows that I have changed, for the better or worse depending on who you ask. I've become more outspoken about some things. I've stopped eating pepperoni and yogurt together. (Yes Eli, that actually happened). Though according to my mother, the best example of how I have changed comes in this story. In Disney world this past summer, we were eating at this fancy Disney restaurant and Cinderella accidentally missed our table and was standing in the corner. My mom suggested one of us go get her to bring her over to the rest of the table. I went over to her and told her I had the perfect socks for her, which I showed her because I was wear my "I lost my shoe" supernatural socks; this got her to laugh. I would never have down this two years ago. But I've changed.

5. What Comes Next?

(Sorry I couldn't resist). Well, I'm working my second SM show and my lost track ASM show. These I'm sure will bebring some great memories to . I"m going to Ireland , something I have been looking forward to since I was a kid. Before I know it, my college expeierence will be done. What ever is next: Bring it on.

Thanks for reading! :)

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.
