7 Moments With Tinder That Question What The Heck You Are Doing

As many individuals know a common app that is blowing up in the adult world is Tinder. Tinder is the commonly known dating app, that has turned more so into an app for someone looking to casually hookup with. There have been some rare stories that a couple, who are in a serious relationship, met through Tinder. So if you are not looking for just sex why make an account?

1. The First God-Like Man You See

Tinder gives you the option to either swipe right or left. Right for "liking" the person on their pictures and a small bio about them, and left for not liking them. Pretty simple. Looks vary on each profile, so when you see the man that looks like Jesus took his sweet time sculpting you immediately think that you have seen the man of your dreams.

2. The Amount of Men Drastically Older Than You

I do not mean a 15-20 year age difference but I can confirm that there are a few with a 10 years apart. Now in retrospect that is not that big of an age difference, but as an 19 year old and the possibility of dating a 29 year old does not work out. Your brain might trick you when you are in the joy of swiping. You might forget to actually acknowledge the vast age difference. One needs to simply remember the age difference between siblings and swiping left will become more common.

3. The Awkward Moment You See Someones Profile You Know

Tinder can be set up through your Facebook so you are able to see how many mutual friends you share. Even if you only know this person from acquaintance or you went to high school with them, the awkwardness is still very prevalent and a left swipe is for sure.

4. The Great Number of Profiles With Mysterious Pictures

How I stated earlier the Tinder gives you a great range of profiles. A good portion of those profiles are of, well, we will say inappropriate objects and random objects, for example a mans hand holding an egg, that leave you questioning what and why?

5. The Intriguing Conversation Starter "What's Up"

These conversations will lead you no where! They tend to start with "Hey, what's up" and the basic and extremely boring banter will continue for a bit. In the end 90% of the conversations will finish with a sexual reference or the best one "wanna come over." Unless you are giving me a new litter of puppies I will not be coming over.

6. The Conversations You Don't Know How To Feel About

When the conversation can get going or they open with a witty pick up line it is more likely to last and not end in an awkward decline for sex. I have noticed these conversations you end up talking about dogs, cats and babies. A safe middle ground. Flirting can ensue and this is when you might need to pull yourself back together. You are going to need to distinguish if this is just casual flirting or is the guy actually trying to get to know you.

7. The Moment You Get Matches

When you open the app and see you have notifications and go through the long list of matches your confidence will skyrocket. It may be the confirmation of the opposite sex enjoying your profile, but you feel great. Although Tinder is a different type of app that can not always match with your intentions, giving it a try can boost your self-confidence, making you feel like you have control.

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.

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.
