13 Signs That You're Always Late

"I'm sorry, I'm running late!"

13 Signs That You're Always Late

We can’t help it; it’s a sickness really. So if you had the record for the most tardies in high school, never made curfew and have had relationships break up because you were two hours late to their birthday -- here’s to you. The first step is acceptance right?

1. When getting ready to go out, your friends tell you a time 30 minutes earlier than they actually plan for

They know you’re not going to be there at 7:30 P.M. unless you’re told 7:00 P.M. Even then they might be still be waiting. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

2. You’ve perfected the art of getting ready in less than 10 minutes

Nap too long? One Netflix episode too many? Every perpetual late-ie knows you skip the shower, take that perfume bath and get out the door in nine minutes -- looking fly af.

3. You know the exact latest time you can get out of bed and still make it to class before they take attendance

8:49 A.M. -- We gucci. 8:51 A.M. -- Run!!!

4. You can come up with some pretty bomb excuses right on the spot

"OK, see, what happened was..."

5. The amount of times you’ve bickered with your besties because you showed up 30 minutes after the LASTEST POSSIBLE TIME is uncountable

“But I’m here now, right?!”

6. When you actually are on time people can’t stop telling you how shocked they are

Yes I get it, I'm on time, what a surprise, do I get a medal?

7. You almost get kicked out of every carpool you join ever

At least the other members know their car horns work!

8. People automatically know who drove by how late you are

“We knew you drove because Hannah is never late!”

9. You always miss the pregame

By the time you show up your friends are on their third drink and walking out the door. Guess you’ll be the sober one tonight.

10. You’ve perfected the art of kissing ass

Your friends aren’t sure how you haven’t gotten a failed participation grade after the tenth time you were late to art history, but it’s only because your professor loves you.

11. You’ve never had an appetizer in your life

At least this gives you an excuse to order that much more food!

12. You speed-walk everywhere you go

You are so used to speed-walking to get somewhere faster that you naturally just speed-walk everywhere now.

13. You really really tried

You started getting ready three hours before you were supposed to be there and you were still the one running in last minute.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
