The 5 Kinds Of People You Will See At Your Local Diner

Every town has their local diner that people flock to on Saturday mornings. However, within the walls of the diner, there are many different types of people.

The 5 Kinds Of People You Will See At Your Local Diner

When you wake up in the morning, you’re hungry. Sometimes there’s barely any motivation to make food. So instead of slaving over a meal you head to your local diner for pancakes, bacon and omelets. Everyone has his or her local diner that you go to on Saturday mornings. However, everyone goes there for many different reasons. There are many different people within the walls of your local diner. Here are five different types of people you will see in your local dinner.

1. Hungover Adolescents

On Saturday mornings after a long night of boozing, what do you need more than water? Nice greasy diner food to cure that hangover. When you walk into a diner on Saturday mornings you will without a doubt see a group of teenagers recovering from their night. They’ll be in the same clothes as last night, so don’t judge.

2. The Regulars

No matter the age, you can spot the regulars as soon as you walk in. They’ll be the ones talking with the wait staff the most. However these unique individuals will not even order and their food will appear in front of them. Perk of the wait staff knowing your order.

3. The Elder Generation

As you walk in you will see an abundance of baby boomers. They’ve had too many years of cooking breakfast so now they come to the diner for breakfast. They’ll be with their significant other or with a group of friends.

4. Family groups

Another group of people that you’ll see will be a family with three young kids all under the age of 5. They come into the diner because the parents are tired from the long workweek and really have no motivation to cook a meal for their children. So they bring them to the diner and they take up the big booths. The kids will also be jumping on the seats and peeking over the backs of the booths

5. Me

Then there’s me. I’m not within a specific category. Sometimes I’m there with my family and sometimes I’m there recovering from my hangover. Sometimes I’m meeting my friends I haven’t seen in 6 months, since were all away at college. No matter what, I love my local diner.

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.
