Writer's Block As Told By Spongebob

"What I learned in boating school is... WHAT I LEARNED IN BOATING SCHOOL IS..."

Writer's Block As Told By Spongebob

We've all been there. You sit down to write a paper (or maybe an article) and it hits you. Writer's block. It's like a ball and chain for your thought process. Suddenly, you can't think of anything. No title. No plot-line. No groundbreaking revelations. Your head is full of absolutely nothing.

At first, you give it a shot. Writer's block can be easily be overcome, right? You just try and tap into your imagination.

You've been sitting at your desk "thinking" (texting) for a good 10 minutes, so you go to put pen to paper.

And then you realize you've written either absolute garbage or literally nothing. So you have to think harder.

You start to think about class and whether or not you actually have been paying attention.

And you look through your notes to discover that, no, you in fact have not been paying attention. So it comes as no surprise when you realize that lecture won't be inspiring you on this one.

It's time to look for inspiration elsewhere. But where to begin?

You decide to consult our lord and savior: Beyoncé. She's brilliant. She can help you write your paper. After all, she writes melodious music that speaks to the masses - so obviously her lyrics will spark your own genius.

But clearly you're not Beyoncé, because after listening to 'Formation' approximately 27 times - you give up and turn to homework's ultimate nemesis: Netflix.

When you look at the clock, you feel like you've been slapped hard by the cruel realization that it's been 6 1/2 hours. You watched 13 episodes of 'Property Brothers' and you feel so much shame.

So you finally buckle down and write words. Just any of the words that come to mind - directly onto the page. You get into the flow of things and think that maybe this isn't so bad.

Then you start over completely and finally something clicks. So you finally give it your all (and probably also several cups of coffee).

You go through and thesaurus a few things to make it sound like you didn't do it all the night before.

And finally, there it is. Your precious paper is finally completed. It's beautiful.

You promise yourself that you'll never procrastinate so hard ever again because you never know when writer's block will hit you and ruin everything. But, obviously, the same exact thing is going to happen again next time. So, get ready.

Happy writing!

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.

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.
