25 Quotes To Remind You To Keep Trying
Marissa Rosa

It's 2 a.m. and you are fighting to keep your eyes open. One more page to read, one more practice question, one more glance at your notes. In this moment you want nothing more than to climb into your bed and let your dreams erase all thoughts of tomorrow’s exam and next week’s final but don’t give up now! Have a sip of your coffee, stand up and stretch, get the blood flowing. This stress is only temporary and the outcome will be so much sweeter than that extra 15 minutes of sleep.

Here are 25 quotes to motivate you the next time you feel the light inside dimming. Sometimes some wise words are all it takes to pick yourself up, brush off the dirt and move on!

2. Push harder than yesterday if you want a different tomorrow.

3. A little progress each day adds up to big results.

14. You are more capable than you will ever know.

15. If you could believe in Santa for ten years you can believe in yourself long enough to accomplish great things.

18. Wake up with determination, go to sleep with satisfaction.

19. Take the bull by the horns.

22. When it rains look for rainbows, when it's dark look for stars.

23. One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.

24. You’re off to great places, today is your day, your mountain is waiting so get on your way.

25. Strive for progress not perfection.

Now go grab your textbook, your laptop and your lucky pencil! No time to waste! Use these motivational statements to ignite the flame inside and push you through today and every day. You can do it and you will do it! You have come much too far to give up now. Just remember how sweet the victory will taste once you reach the goals you have set and how much sweeter it will feel to know you were capable of it all along.

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.

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.

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.
