Or not going out ...

15 Thoughts Of An Anti-Social Extrovert Before Going Out

Let me just start out by saying I'm a super complicated person. Most people don't get what goes through my head at the thought of going out. When your average Joe receives the "What're you doing tonight?" text they reply excitedly. But me, no. I'm torn. I'm totally cool with being outgoing, having fun, and getting a little (or extremely) sweaty on the dance floor, but I'm also totally good with sitting at home with a good show on Netflix that requires no human interaction whatsoever. Deciding between the two is not an easy task. I'm a turtle. When I'm in my shell, I'm in it for good; It's hard to get me back out. Thousands of thoughts rush through my head when considering going out, but I am here today to sum it up into 15 so that colleagues of mine can try to understand just how much this decision really stresses me out.

To set the scene, I am at home heating up leftover food while getting comfortable when my phone lights up with a text. It reads "COME OUT TONIGHT!"

The following ensues:

1. No. I can't go out tonight. I have stuff to do. I don't even know who will be there. What if I get left alone?

2. Well, I don't know. I'm young... I won't get these days back. I need to get out there and have fun. Let's make some memories!

3. Oh God. But (insert annoying person's name here) is going. And what if I run into (insert ex's name here)?

4. ... I do actually look cute today though. And I just bought that new outfit. It shouldn't go to waste. I'll just go.

5. But I have so much homework to do ... And I have work in the morning.

6. Oh well. They're just responsibilities. It's just my life. It's fine. I'm fine. Right?

7. What am I saying? I'm suppose to be adulting here. I can't go out. Not tonight.

8. But like.... I kind of just really wanna let my freak flag fly.

9. Oh God. They're texting me again. They're going to hate me if I back out.

10. Why is life so hard? What did I do to deserve this?

11. I really should just stay in with my dog.

12. I'm too lazy to have a social life, anyway.

13. I'm going to live a miserable life and die alone because I didn't have fun and make friends in college.

14. That's it. I'm forcing myself to be social tonight.

15. Let's just do this before I change my mind.

So, there you have it. Cut me some slack.

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.
