Why You Shouldn't Take High School For Granted
The Huffington Post

While I was still in high school, I always found it to be such a drag. The days just never seemed to end, and having soccer practice afterwards just made them seem even longer. During my senior year, I fell asleep in almost every class as a result of having to wake up at six in the morning. I didn't have to put much effort into anything I did because there wasn't much to do. I was longing for something more, and I thought that something was college. After visiting my high school after being in college for a few weeks, I realized how much I missed that place. Here, I bestow to you the reasons why you should never take high school for granted.

1. Life is much simpler

You might not realize this until you graduate from high school and go to college or start working all week, but high school is really the simplest stage of life. Yes, there was still work to be done, but not nearly as much work as there will be after it's over.

2. You have your friends close by

Fights happen between you and your close friends. You will get over them. None of those petty arguments will matter after high school is over, and you will deeply miss hanging out in class with your friends or having those crazy conversations at lunch.

3. The workload is lighter

If you think you are suffering from a boatload of work now, wait until college comes around or you have to work 40 hours a week. I'm sure everyone has heard these warnings several times, but just push through homework, because you're going to need a lot of strength to get through what comes after high school (and you'll get even more work in college, trust me).

Though this list is short, these three points are the key factors into what makes high school so great. You may feel like you want to get out of that wretched building as soon as possible, and the days may seem to take forever, but a little piece of you will always miss the easy days of high school once all is said and done.

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.
