The title is long but so is this winter

This is the background you need to know in order to understand this post. It is April. It is snowing in Western New York. This is oppressive. We are being punished. It is inequitable and unjust. Now here are five ugly Renaissance babies who set the tone for my bitterness.

1. When you need a lift and it's too icy to drive

The worst part of never-ending winter is the driving. It is horrible just to slide across the ice walking, let alone barreling down the road at 55mph.

2.When you wake up and look out the window and see that snow flurry greeting you

The dread that fills your soul as you wake up to see bleak, gray skies, and snow flurrying around is beyond measure. You know how you felt in the second Hunger Games book when you realized Katniss was going for the Hunger Games round two? Yeah, that's the level of dread.

3. When you are trying to stay warm but all your winter clothes are boxed away

There is nothing more disappointing than breaking out your floral button ups and lacy dresses and having to cover them up with clunky cardigans and not quite warm enough jackets. Or even worse, you just continue to wear your winter clothing.

4. When they claim it's Easter but it's seeming more like Christmas

Nothing is more horrific than waking up on Easter morning to see large, heavy snowflakes murdering your tulips. Nothing.

5. When you slip and fall into a snowbank and you decide life is suffering

There's the point when you just give up and decide, this fate, and you must suffer. This is heightened when your work or school is out of salt and the ice is everywhere and you become one with the snow that is, in fact, colder than the air. Life becomes suffering, everything is suffering, I'm cold.

Superman and Batman have nothing on being invisible with their superhero abilities. Here are some things that you could do while being invisible, because being invisible can benefit your social life too.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?
