13 Statements Good Charlotte Fans Can Relate To

You didn't want to admit it, but your inner teenage punk-rocker was excited to see their hiatus end.

13 Statements Good Charlotte Fans Can Relate To

If you are or were ever a fan of Good Charlotte and you didn't know they released a new album titled "Youth Authority," then you've likely been living under a rock. Not only did they just release a new album after about a four year hiatus, but they also joined the ranks of the notorious "punk rock summer camp," The Vans Warped Tour, for the first time in 12 years alongside 80+ other punk rock bands. (Hopefully you were able to attend.)

I don't know about you but the musical growth throughout the years of one of my favorite bands growing up has been an interesting process, and I still love them.

1. "Little Things" was incredibly easy to relate to while you were in Middle/High School because "this song is dedicated to every kid who ever got picked last in gym class, to every kid who never had a date to no school dance, to everyone who's ever been called a freak, this is for you."

2. While you loved their Self-Titled album "Good Charlotte", "The Young and The Hopeless" was where it was at.

3. The original "Hold On" video was so heart wrenching and in one way or another you were able to relate to one of the stories they shared.

4. "The Anthem" was your anthem.

5. "Girls don't like boys girls like cars and money, boys will laugh at girls when they're not funny." #Truth

6. You still know all of the words to every song off "The Young and The Hopeless" album.

7. You bought both "The Chronicles of Life and Death - Life" and "The Chronicles of Life and Death - Death."

8. The "I Just Wanna Live" music video featuring The Food Group was arguably one of the weirdest Good Charlotte music videos ever.

9. "The River" was likely your favorite song off of "Good Morning Revival," especially if you were also an "Avenged Sevenfold" fan.

10. You watched GC TV regularly, especially when the band was on tour.

11. You were super excited that one time they were featured in the Donkey Konga 2 commercial.

12. They convinced you that 1979 was a good, good year, even if you weren't born yet.

13. No matter how old you get you'll always remember that it's GC Forever.

Also, if you haven't listened to "Youth Authority" yet and you're hesitant, I highly suggest giving it a listen. You just might be pleasantly surprised.

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.
