11 Signs K-Pop Has Taken Over Your Life

Becoming a fan of K-Pop is like opening a can of worms—a money draining, time consuming, very awesome can of worms. No one has ever dipped their toes into the pool of this music genre without falling in head first. It's intriguing, mysterious, entertaining, and a whole lot of fun (and will certainly lead you on many crazy adventures in your lifetime). The K-Pop fandom shares a common array of feelings, struggles, and emotions that are only understandable to those within the community. If you are concerned your obsession is getting out of hand, you may want to double check with these hazardous signs (and if you're anything like me, you have experienced all of them):

1. All your money goes to merchandise or concert tickets (bonus points if you have ever bought a gift for your bias).

2. You are a self-proclaimed K-Pop choreography expert.

3. You know exactly when 12 a.m. KST is in your timezone and prepare yourself for potential music videos, teaser pictures, or comeback announcements.

4. People ask you how you suddenly became so proficient in Hangul.

5. You are overprotective of your bias and believe they are a special snowflake who deserves all the love in the world.

5. You have learned to ignore people who say "You can't even understand them!" or "Why is this guy wearing makeup?"

6. You get really excited when you receive your bias' photo card and can add it to your collection.

8. You met one of your best friends through your mutual love for K-Pop.

9. You incorporate K-Pop into as many school assignments as possible (and have actually been excited to do your homework).

10. You have stayed up all night or woken up very early to see a live broadcast in another timezone.

11. You have seen your favorite band in concert and it was the best day of your life.

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.
