10 Things You Know To Be True If You're The Grandma Of The Friend Group

Even though you're in your 20s, there are probably times where you feel like you don't exactly fit in with the rest of the 20s crowd. You like to go to bed early, going out to the bars all the time might be struggle or maybe you just get way too excited over adult things.

If you feel like you fit with these things, you might be the grandma of your friend group.

1. Going out during the week is a challenge.

It's Wednesday and your friends want to go out. You know you'll have fun if you go out, but your friends practically have to drag you to the bar.

2. You get excited about what you're going to be making for dinner.

You're past the stage of frozen dinners and ordering out every night. You've been on Pinterest for hours searching for the perfect gnocchi and vodka sauce recipe and you can't wait to try it out.

3. You're thinking about settling down.

While your friends are trying to pick up guys at the bar, you're dreaming about the day when your man finally pops the question. You also have your entire wedding planned out via Pinterest boards.

4. You can't function properly past 11 p.m.

Your bedtime is probably 10:30 p.m., so if you're out past that time, odds are you're yawning every five minutes. Forget sitting down because you'll be asleep on someone's shoulder.

5. Your friends can go out three nights in a row but you can barely handle one.

Three nights in a row? But when do you sleep?

6. You're super into crafting/knitting.

Not saying that crafting and knitting is limited to only grandmas, but if you can knit a sweater like a boss in a short amount of time, you might be a grandma.

7. If you don't get at least 8 hours of sleep, you're dead to the world.

Some people can stay up until 3 a.m. and get then be up and ready at 8 a.m. but honestly, I am not one of those people.

8. You get excited when you get grocery coupons in the mail.

Nothing is more exciting than discounted Wegmans products that you can use for the dinner recipe that you found on Pinterest.

9. Sometimes movie nights on your couch seem more appealing than the bar.

Wine + pajamas + chick flicks = happy life.

10. You know you're the grandma of the group, but you embrace it.

Just because you're the grandma doesn't mean you don't know how to have fun. After all, just look at Baddiewinkle.

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.
