20 Things That Bother Me

I don't have pet peeves; I have whole kennels of irritation.

20 Things That Bother Me

Everyone has those things that people do that just eerk them to no end. Here are a few things that I have found that I consider as my "pet peeves".

1. Girls wearing a full face of makeup (we are not coloring books, ladies)!

2. People being openly drunk in public and not caring at all about it.

3. Drunk driving.

4. Girls wearing leggings as pants without wearing a long enough shirt that covers their butt.

5. Girls wearing spandex as shorts.

6. When people pay thousands upon thousands of dollars to go to college just to major in "partying".

7. When people say that if someone from another country does not know how to speak English then they shouldn't be allowed in America.

8. When children are not taught manners.

9. When parents do drugs and drink in front of their children.

10. Being questioned about my hair and fashion choices.

11.Being judged for what music I listen to.

12. Being judged for being a Christian.

13. When people use money as a way of stating that they are "better" than someone else.

14. Sports being the center of people's lives.

15. Money being the center of people's lives.

16. When you are one size in jeans at one store, but a totally different size in jeans at a different store.

17. People treating weight loss a competition (slow and steady wins the race).

18. Snarky comments towards someone's weight loss.

19. When people complain all of the time about anything and everything.

20. And last but not least, when people are on their phones when they are "socially enteracting" with one another (like at a restaurant, at the dinner table, at church, in class, etc).

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.
