11 Annoying People During Class

If lecture wasn't spicy enough... Throw in some pen clickers and food smackers into the mix.

11 Annoying People During Class

People seem to forget how to be less annoying in class or choose to be more annoying because they can. These are the few acts that happen on a daily basis in each one of my classes and I'm sure all of you. Schmidt's commentary helps along the way.

1. People who show up late.

I get it — we all have places to be with little time in the day. But please try to get to class without causing a scene.

2. The people who bring food to class... It's not the quiet kind either.

Why must you crunch so loud and smack your lips like a cow especially when it's dead silent... People who have sensitive hearing would love not be upset in class so please bring a soft food.

3. The friends who talk the entire period. WHY?

Talking each others ears off and everyone else's. You are a huge distraction and people tend to zone in on side conversations. Come on guys, whisper quieter.

4. The students who are not acting not so nonchalantly using their phones.

Every time someone whips out their phone in plain, I truly want to lean forward and give them a suggestion on what to add in their text message. Or maybe their Instagram post because that's more important than a class you're paying thousands of dollars on.

5. The student who always argues with the professor.

Even if it's the most random fact or a topic in class — they find a way. But please let's make the entire lecture hall uncomfortable for the next 30 minutes.

6. The constantly sniffling guy or girl.

I've been there and we've all been there. But grab a tissue or a your sleeve. Or someone will tell you to blow your nose and make things awkward.

7. Out of all 300 sits in the lecture all... They choose the seat right in front of you.

You took my footrest and my perfect view of the board. Thank you for starting my day great. I hope someone takes your favorite place.

8. Tall people who take up your view space.

These people make you seem like a crazy person because you keep moving your head back and forth. Re-positioning yourself every two minutes.

9.The one kid who always tries to prove the professor wrong.

You will not win. Maybe you should team up with the person who wants to be Mr. Right all the time. Make class longer and maybe a syllabus change because of you.

10. The pen clickers...

One of the most annoying sounds you could do as a nervous habit. Pick your nails or draw doodles. The not so beautiful clicking is distracting me right along with the loud chewer.

11. Shout out to the kid who sleeps in class... We all feel you.

You're not annoying. You deserve a shout out to do what we all want to do in our 8 a.m. or 2 p.m. We are living vicariously through you.

Maybe one day these will become less in class — but knowing college, it'll grow even more. Woah! College classes has their perks.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
