11 Things Overly Prepared People Do

In most cases, it is great to plan ahead, and being a planner can certainly be helpful. Unless, however, you are an over-planner who spends all of their time planning for the future instead of living in the past. If you are an over-planner then you understand the struggle.

You check and recheck your planner. I can never be sure if I have everything written down and if everything in it is organized properly.

You lay in bed and wonder if everything for the next day is already planned out.

You lay out your entire wardrobe for the next day the night before.

You constantly check to see if everyone around you has everything in their life together as well (sorry, we know it's annoying).

You plan situations in your life that are months, even years, ahead.

You go through ridiculous and improbable situations in your head, so that just in case they occur, you will be prepared.

You stress about everything and anything.

You name yourself as the boss of every task so that it can get done properly because, clearly, only you are cut out for the task.

You worry that you will make one wrong decision and all of your plans will be ruined causing your entire future to be messed up forever.

You take Advil for the headache all of your constant planning and organizing has caused you.

Ultimately, in the process of planning everything out, you will forget to actually do or remember something, which will ruin all of the planning you worked so hard on.

One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
