19 Thoughts No One Ever Has While on the Treadmill

The treadmill. Aka "The dreadmill." Because nothing beats running in place and staring at walls while profusely sweating all alone or in a hot, packed gym. While they're convenient for certain training and when the weather outside isn't running-friendly, the list of pro's for treadmills stops right about there for most people. Here are 19 thoughts that you're probably not having while you're running on the treadmill.

1. "I love cardio."

2. "I could run on the treadmill for hours."

3. "Because I enjoy running and slipping all over pools of my own sweat."

4. "I'm totally not thinking about food right now."

5. "I feel so in shape and incredibly fit."

6. "In fact, I think I'll run on the highest speed setting. For the entire time."

7. "Why not just race the person next to me while I'm at it?"

8. "Because that's always a good idea."

9. "I feel like everyone in the gym is watching me, but I don't mind."

10. "Maybe I'll show off a little."

11. "Or a lot."

12. "Me? Extremely graceful on the treadmill and maintaining perfect form? You bet."

13. "I think I'll add some equipment to make the treadmill more challenging."

14. "Because the treadmill alone isn't difficult enough."

15. "The best part of using treadmills is getting to run in place and stare at walls."

16. "Who would rather run outside?"

17. "Not me."

18. "Yup. I could do this for hours."

19. "Where would we be without treadmills?"

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.
