13 Things Every Left-Handed Person Can Relate To
The Verge

Did you know being left-handed is rarer than being both right-handed and ambidextrous? If you're a lefty you probably did. It's not easy being special, though. With the prevalence of our right-handed brethren, it often doesn't feel like the world is designed for those more left-inclined. Scissors, desks and even credit card checkouts aren't made for us. At least this list is. Read the rest of this list and finally feel included in something!

1. Scissors Are A Nightmare


And lefty scissors are not nearly as ubiquitous as they should be.

2. Novelty Mugs Just Aren't For You

It's cool. Didn't want to know what the motivational quote inside the mug said anyway.

3. And Neither Is Sports Equipment

Baseball and softball gloves for lefties are a ridiculous rarity.

4. Or Video Game Controllers

All the tough moves were on the right-handed side.

5. Or Pens

Especially those ones with the chains on them at banks.

6. Or Credit Card Checkouts

Sorry that I wanted to pay for my merchandise and use my dominant hand.

7. Or Desktop Mice And Keyboards



8. Or Most Desks

9. You've Heard "Are You Left Handed?" More Times Than You Can Count

No, I just do this to add more challenge to my already difficult life.

10. Pencil And Pen Smudging Is So Real And Such A Problem

11. So Is Bumping Elbows With All Your Right-Handed Buddies


12. And Writing On A Whiteboard Is A No-Go

13. Oh, And Don't Forget The Blatant Emoji Discrimination We Face

Life's tough, lefties. Hang in there! And remember: if cool people like Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Marilyn Monroe and Angelina Jolie can survive as lefties, so can you! Share this article with your righty friends so they can finally understand your daily struggle.

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
