9 Times The Grinch Proved To Actually Be Your Typical College Girl

"He's as cuddly as a cactus, as charming as an eel."

9 Times The Grinch Proved To Actually Be Your Typical College Girl

The winter holidays are upon us, which gives me the perfect excuse to ramble on about my favorite Christmas movie character; the Grinch. He is bitter, ill- tempered, comical, and surprisingly sensitive. Furthermore, he is a perfect personification of your typical college girl.

1. He understands that the process of getting ready to go out for the night is actually an ordeal.

"I don't know what to wear." "I can only wear this outfit if my hair is curled." "These shoes look so great with this but they're not bar shoes." "I have the most perfect outfit in mind but I don't own one item of clothing that I need for it." "Haha okay this looked so much better in my mind."

2. He also understands that for about 99.9% of the time, you're going to hate everything you try on.

You always end up going though.

3. He tries so hard to discard THOSE memories.

Delete those pictures. Delete those texts. Delete that tweet. You and your friends understand that if there's no evidence to look back on then it didn't happen.

4. He's got every excuse in the book.

Last Spring I literally emailed my professor a picture of my migraine prescription medicine because I ran out of reasons as to why I'd been absent so much. It was a desperate time.

5. The answer is almost always yes.

I like to tell myself that snacking helps me study. Especially popcorn. Seriously, it's brain food.

6. Catching the feels in college is usually just a no.

Guys are fun and all but when you start having the slightest feelings for one at this age, you have entered one dangerous territory my friend.

7. The "Sophomore Slump" is oh so very real.

Netflix, food, a bed with a perfectly constructed dent in it that matches my body, and roommates who I can call out to if I'm really feeling social. Yeah, I'm fine staying in tonight. Again.

8. That time in every semester where your life seems like a complete joke and you're already planning your future nap after your alarm clock goes off.

What makes it even sadder is that I go to bed with the motivation to wake up earlier to drive to the gym before class but end up turning that alarm clock off and then barely making it to my actual class.

9. We're all idiots but we're learning. It's okay.

I hate to be cliche but it really is okay to be stupid and make mistakes right now. As long as there's something you can take away from it.

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.
