Yes I walk into a walls. What's the big deal?

8 Things Only Clumsy People Will Relate To

In this world. you are going to meet a lot of people. Some are short, or tall. Quiet or loud. Mean or nice, etc. But, you are also going to meet people who are clumsy. I am one of those people. I know you probably think "oh aren't clumsy people also considered dumb? Well ,yes that is a stereotype for clumsy people but, you have to remember clumsy people have it tough! We walk into walls, trip over flat surfaces, and fall up and down the stairs. And that's a good day for us. Here are some things that only people who are clumsy will be able to relate to.

1. Waking up in the morning is a struggle.

I know everyone struggles to get up in the morning, but for clumsy people we're lucky if we wake up in our bed! There have been times when I've woken up on the floor, even though I went to sleep in my bed. Then trying to walk to the bathroom? Forget it. We're lucky if we are able to get to our door without stubbing our toe on our bed post.

2. You're always spilling things.

It's always something hot, cold, you name it. One time I was at Dunkin Donuts, and I got an iced coffee. I then knocked it over once I was leaving the store. After I got ANOTHER cup of coffee, I then proceeded to drop in the parking lot 10 minutes later. Yeah, I'm surprised that they let me back into Dunkin Donuts also.

3. You're always walking into walls.

You know most people when they are walking, and they see a wall, they know to move out of the way in order not to crash into the wall. Us clumsy people, on the other hand, we see the wall. We know that we shouldn't walk into the wall, so we make sure that we move so we do not collide with the wall. Then we continue walking, but we STILL crash into the wall. Nothing new here, move along.

4. Stairs? FORGET IT!

Whenever I hear that I have a class on the second floor of a building I always see if there is an alternative way to go up than using the stairs. I hate stairs, and whenever I'm in a rush and have to go up a flight of stairs it never goes well. I'm lucky if I can walk down the stairs without missing the first or last step. Going up the stairs? That's a whole different story. Let's just say that stairs don't like me.

5. Trying to get something off a shelf? GOOD LUCK!

OK, maybe this isn't for every clumsy person, but for me it is. I'm not a very tall person, so in order for me to get something off the top shelf of a cabinet, I need something to give me a boost up, Most people would grab a step stool, or chair to help them get up there, so naturally you would think that'd I'd do that right? NOPE! I decide that I can jump onto the counter, and grab what I need off the shelf. Normally I get on the counter and slip off because I'm in socks. No, I still have not learned my lesson.

6. Your phone is always broken.

Before I got a smartphone, I always wondered how people cracked their screens so often. I mean all you have to do is make sure you don't drop your phone, it's not that complicated. Boy, was I wrong! After having my first iPhone for two months I dropped it and completely shattered the screen. I have also had my phone go through the washing machine. Let's just say I'm not that good with phones.

7. Mystery Bruises

Have you ever looked at a bruise on your arm and think, "how the heck did I get that?". Well, for clumsy people this is a thought we have pretty much every day. As of right now, I have two bruises on my knee, and I have no clue where they came from.

8. You're known as the "clumsy" friend!

Everywhere I go I trip on something, and my friends are no longer shocked when this happens. Sometimes they'll make sure that I'm okay, but for the most part they just crack up laughing at me.

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.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
