Dear Everyone, Keep In Mind These Things While Shopping, Or Going Out To Eat

I've worked in retail, fast food, and customer service for some time now, and I've learned some things along the way. Here are some of those things that I would like to share.

First, I've learned this one in the past month or so. I know all systems aren't the same, but if you are using EBT, please tell your cashier because they don't know unless you tell them. From personal experience, I don't know, and I just assume you are using a debit or credit card.

Second, cashiers can't control the prices. Prices will change. So, please don't get mad if and when they do because they will.

Thirdly, people who work in retail and customer service are human beings. They have feelings. Just like you and me. Keep that in mind. Plus, they also make mistakes. They aren't perfect.

Fourth, they know how to do their job, and if they don't know how to do something, they will find someone who does. You don't have to tell them how to do their job.

Fifth, they are not stupid. Just because they work in retail or in customer service, does not mean they are stupid. The people that I have worked with are not stupid and are pretty educated.

And as a reminder, be patient when it comes to fast food. Things do happen. There might be a rush, and it might take time for the cooks to get your food done. Trust me, it will get to you. Some food also takes longer than others to cook. If you go through the drive through, and they ask you to park, there is probably a good reason for it.

People who work in retail, fast food, or customer service, it does take a lot of work. It's not easy either. f

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. 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.
