20 Signs You're Completely Obsessed With Your Fitbit
http://www.orlandosentinel.com

After listening to my friends talk about their Fitbits 24/7 for two weeks straight and watching them run around in circles competing with each other trying to get in more steps than the other, I decided to get a Fitbit to see what all the hype was about -- and now I know. I never knew I had a competitive side to me, but it sure came out when I would do anything to win the Fitbit challenges. I found myself walking in the rain at 10:30 p.m. just to win the Workweek Hustle. I am completely obsessed with my Fitbit, and I'm sure many of you are too.

Here are 20 signs you're obsessed with your Fitbit:

1. You probably spent over 100 dollars on your Fitbit, so you're already obsessed.

2. You wear your Fitbit everywhere. It doesn't matter if you have on a dress or a T-shirt and Nike shorts; you always have it on. You even have a tan line from your Fitbit.

3. Forms of exercise such as swimming become pointless, because you can't get in any steps.What's the point of exercise if your Fitbit can't track it?

4. Steps! Steps! Steps!

5. It's all you talk about, and you know you're starting to annoy people by talking about it so much.

6. When you hit your 10,000 step goal, you basically throw yourself a party."10,000 steps! Nailed it! Go me!"

7. You do whatever it takes to win the Weekend Warrior or Workweek Hustle, even if that means walking in the rain at night....

8. You have become super competitive with your friends. If one of your friends even dares to try to take the lead when you're in first, you're automatically offended.

9. You've found sneaky ways to win the Workweek Hustle or Weekend Warrior...I didn't sync my Fitbit for a few hours just so my friends didn't see that I was completely crushing them in the workweek hustle until it was too late for them to make a comeback....but I'm not a cheater....right..?

10. You used to hate walking, but for some reason, it's fun for you now.

11. Finding out that your Fitbit was dead after a two mile walk is the worst news ever. What was even the point of walking if my Fitbit wasn't going to record my steps?

12. Getting Fitbit badges feels equivalent to getting a 100 on an exam. I did it! OMG, I got a new badge!

13. If you are more than 5,000 steps behind your friends, you are completely embarrassed. This is not acceptable -- what am I doing with my life? I need to pick it up.

14. You get angry at non-Fitbit people who just don't understand.

15. People make fun of your obsession with your Fitbit.

16. Looking at your sleep log is the most interesting thing in the world."I was restless at 2:35 am for about 3 minutes. Hmm, I wonder why?"

17. Your Fitbit is your only motivation.

18. You realize that before you had a Fitbit, you were one lazy person.

19. You park far away, even when there are spots up close, just to get in those extra few steps.

20. You find yourself double tapping your Fitbit again and again to see how many steps you're at, even if you checked less than a minute ago.

*5,657 steps*

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.

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.
