10 Conversations I Don't Want To Have On Thursday

And I'm sure you don't either.

10 Conversations I Don't Want To Have On Thursday
Rocky Hill Exeter

Hopefully, you'll be with family on Thanksgiving day. You have to love them, but sometimes they can bring up subjects you'd rather not discuss. This might be because you know you won't agree, or possibly because it's just taboo. Either way, here are some typical conversations I expect to hear about.

1. Have you found a man yet?

Yeah, no. Sorry to disappoint. No, my standards aren't too high. It will happen when it happens.

2. What do you think about the election?

I have a lot of thoughts. Number one being disappointed in America. No, that doesn't mean I voted for Hillary Clinton, calm down. Yes, I know Jesus is in control.

3. How are your grades?

Don't ask unless you want me to be honest. I will cry.

4. What are gonna do after you graduate?

Refer to answer #3.

5. Do you have a job?

Yes, I do. I'm sorry you don't think it's a 'real one.

6. Are you really going to eat all that?

YES I AM. Please send me home with leftovers. I am but a poor college kid.

7. Did you hear about your cousin?

The one who is in jail for the fourth time? Yes, and I'm curious as to why you keep bailing him out. (don't actually say that last part).

8. Do you remember when *insert horrifying childhood memory*?


9. What kind of an outfit is that?

Why, do you want to borrow it?

10. Shouldn't you be over there with the kids?

I am literally 20 years old.

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.
