It’s that time of year again!!
(And no, I’m not talking about Christmas—yet. )
It’s time to register for classes. That golden opportunity — yes, we all know YOU got the worst time slot — when and you’re forced to plan out more than just tomorrow’s outfit. And also when you want to smash anything and everything in close proximity because nothing will ever work out the way you want. Just me?
Here are some songs that I hope speak to your frustrations about registration (frusgistrations? no that’s not cute) on a spiritual level.
Unwritten — Natasha Bedingfield
Unwritten, undefined, ending unplanned — just like your ideal class schedule until about two seconds before you’re time slot.
Come Clean — Hilary Duff
Trying to navigate ConnectCarolina is eerily similar, I feel, to having my sanity washed away. “Trying to fit a square into a circle” — more like trying to turn a square into a circle, amirite??
What Do You Mean? — Justin Bieber
As in: What do you mean I need permission from the instructor? What do you mean I can’t wait list anymore classes? What do you mean I can’t enroll in anything I want? What does it all MEAN?
Love Myself — Hailee Seinfeld
What you tell your friends when they ask why you refuse to take any 8 a.m. classes.
Shake It Off -— Taylor Swift
What you tell yourself when you actually have to take 8 a.m. classes.
Back to Back — Drake
How your two hardest classes will end up in your schedule, despite your best efforts. Oh man, not again.
Complicated — Avril Lavigne
You fall and you crawl and you break and you take what you get and you turn it into next semester’s schedule. That’s the way it is.
What Hurts The Most — Rascal Flatts
…is the message that the wait list is full. Now you’ll never know what could’ve been.
Forget You — Cee Lo Green
That one class with a recitation that messes up your entire day.
Too Little Too Late — Jojo
When you realize you’re still not officially a student because you’re only enrolled in six hours by the end of the day.
A Thousand Years — Christina Perri
The length of time you feel you’ve been sweating over this schedule.
4 Minutes — Madonna
The length of time it’s actually been.
Hotline Bling — Drake
Your relationship with Class Checker for the next 2 months. Even Drake knows that seeing a class close will really get you down and stressed out.
Survivor — Destiny’s Child
Your anthem for next semester because you’re not going to stop, you’re going to work harder (at least that’s what you’re telling yourself now).
