A theory was produced at some point in time that categorize individuals into two different categories, either Type A or Type B, based on their personality traits. Type A individuals exhibit the traits of, being very competitive, and self critical. Type A people also take on loads of things at once, which can be too much for them to handle, causing self- induced stress. People categorized under Type A are known to be always doing something, and do not have time to just be sitting around, and they become easily impatient when they do not have something to do, or they feel as if they are just simply wasting time. On the opposite end of the spectrum are the people classified as having this Type B personality. Type B individuals are more relaxed and are less worrisome about getting things done than Type A individuals. Type B individuals also do things more for the enjoyment of it not just to succeed or win every time. Type B people are overall less stressed and more laid back, and content with their life, flaws and all.

A character that portray the traits of a Type B personality is Crush the sea turtle from the Disney movie Finding Nemo. Crush is one of the many sea animals that Nemo and Dory come across on their adventure and he is also one of the most laid back. Crush enjoys having a good time and is very care free. When Nemo says he needs help however, Crush is fully willing to help them find their way, but he wants to make sure they have fun doing it aswell. Just like individuals with the Type B personality, Crush is able to accomplish the task at hand, while enjoying himself and not overreacting or stressing about it.

The Disney princess Cinderella is a character who exhibits the traits of an individual with the Type A personality. Cinderella has to unwillingly take on large amounts of work, and is simply overwhelmed each and every day. Living with her evil stepmother and stepsisters, Cinderella does everything in her power to please them, and in doing this, she creates self- induced stress, which is an immensely common thing among individuals with the Type A personality. Cinderella is not laid back at all, and she is busy at every waking second of the day. When Cinderella’s fairy godmother gives her the opportunity to go to an extravagant ball, with the most handsome man in the village, the only the thing she has on her mind is getting home in time to finish what chores she needs to have done, and to make her evil stepmother happy. This Disney character is a prime example of a person that shows the Type A personality qualities.

Another very memorable Disney character that comes equipped with a Type A personality is Kim from the show Kim Possible. Kim has a multitude of things to handle at once, and she likes it that way, so she is always preoccupied. At the end of the day however, Kim is exhausted, and immensely over whelmed at points as well. Kim is trying to save the world, fight crime, be a cheerleader, and on top of that get good grades and do well in school. Kim shares the same traits as many students with the Type A personality today, aside from the saving the world part for most people. Kim has a drive to get done what she needs to get done, and she will not stop until she does so. Kim Possible is a key exemplification of a Type A personality.

A final example of a character with a certain personality trait is Olaf from Frozen, who has a type B personality. Olaf does not let the little things bother him, and he is immensely laid back. Olaf is able to relax and handle situations very different than someone of a Type A personality would. Olaf is laid back and more calm during stressful situations and he is also lazy when it comes to certain things. Olaf exemplifies the Type B personality traits greatly.

10 Abnormally Normal Things About College

Some stuff just doesn't fly in the real world.

College is a weird, weird place. For whatever reason, the young adults who are supposed to be cultivating their minds with all of the worldly knowledge available to them, seem to get away with quite a bit using the justification "it's college." Even the best students live abnormally while on the alien planet that is a university. So, while to us college students it may just seem like another day, here are ten things that are only normal in college.

1. Straight up theft.

In the future, if I walk into my forty-something-year-old neighbor's home and see a collection of stolen signs, stuff from the local restaurant, and property from the construction site down the road, I would definitely be concerned about the character of my neighbor. However, in college, people proudly display campus signs, traffic cones, or dining hall napkin dispensers that they have impressively commandeered - it's a cheap decoration and a great conversation starter.

2. All-nighters.

Maybe with the exception of parents of little babies, very few people willingly stay up for close to 24 hours on end. In the real world, if a friend came to you and said that they literally did not sleep the previous night, it's completely logical to be worried. On the other hand, when a friend in college says that he was up all night you laugh a little, give him an understanding pat on the back, and walk with him to the coffee line.

3. Atrocious eating habits.

Sometimes you don't have time to eat. Sometimes you order pizza at 2 in the morning. Sometimes you eat three dinners. Sometimes you diet. All I can say, is thank goodness that our metabolisms are decently high at this age.

4. Breaking and entering.

In high school, you hopefully knew everyone who entered your home. After college, hopefully, that's still the case. However, when you live in the middle of thousands of bored college students, people knock at your door, walk into parties, cut through your yard, and stop by without invitation or hesitation. It keeps life fun, but still not normal.

5. Calling mom when stuff goes down.

I really doubt a time will ever come that I don't need to call my mom for guidance on how to do something. But, hopefully the frequency of those calls with go down a little bit post-graduation. Maybe after four years of doing it on my own, I'll know how to fill out government forms, cook real dinners, and get stains out. But for now, I'm going to keep calling while I still can without seeming totally pathetic.

6. Being intoxicated at weird times.

Drunk at noon on a Friday is the quintessence of an alcoholic at any time - unless it's college. Not that this is necessarily a good thing, and it certainly doesn't apply to everyone, but there aren't many other places where people would instantly assume someone is intoxicated if they're acting even a little weird. I've even seen people drink in the library....

7. The messed up dating scene.



There are people who meet the love of their life at college and live happily ever after. They are people who meet the supposed love of their life at college and never talk to them again after Sunday. There are people who use Tinder. Hormones are high, freedom is bountiful, and football players are cute - what else needs to be said?

8. A warped sense of time.

The career I'm pursuing will require me to be at work by 7 am, five days a week. I am fully aware of this. Now, will I enroll in an 8 am next semester? Absolutely not - I'm not a demon. In college, nights often start at 10 p.m., dinners are eaten at 4, and mornings can begin anywhere from 8 to 2. We don't get that whole 9-5 idea.

9. Costumes... for no apparent reason.

High schoolers have a dress code. Adults have dignity. College students have fun. Here, people will wear a corn costume to get on ESPN, a fanny pack to get into a fraternity, or a tutu to match a theme party. Is it actually a weird thing, though? No one even blinks an eye.

10. Insanely close friends.

Name another point in your life when you live with your friends, study with your friends, drive with your friends, eat with your friends, go out with your friends, and even grocery shop with your friends. I'll wait. At college, it's easy for friends to seem like family because you're with them constantly. Love it or hate it, it's weird about college.

So, enjoy this weirdness while you can - it won't last forever!

It's no joke that life can sometimes get the best of us when we are not on top of things. Personally, if I don't take the time to gather my thoughts and get a little organized, my life becomes chaotic.

Have you ever noticed your room or workspace getting cluttered and once you took a step back you realized your head was also a cluttered mess?

This happens to the best of us but instead of being down on yourself and letting it stress you out, take a deep breath and try to work a few of these ideas into your daily routine.

1. Spend quality time with the people you love 

2. Set a weekly goal 

3. Make a list of the things you need to get done (and actually do them one by one)

4. Don't make plans or commitments you know you can't do 

5. Break things down and take it one day at a time, don't overwork yourself 

6. Set weekly or monthly budgets and stick to it 

7. Pay attention to the people who surround you and if you notice ones who put you down- let them go 

8. Find one thing that relaxes you and do it every day before you go to bed 

9. Prioritize your plans 

10. Stop procrastinating 

11. Take a mental health day and let yourself recuperate 

12. Be optimistic about things even if your day started on the wrong foot 

13. Make a separate chores list for things you need to get done around the house 

14. Find something you can do/ have all to yourself and embrace it 

15. Talk yourself through situations that give you anxiety 

16. Communicate with others and don't be afraid to ask for help 

17. Get a coffee and get to work on the things you keep putting off 

18. Be your biggest fan and always reassure yourself 

It's time to stop letting stress bring you down. When the world around us gets us in a funk the best thing to do is stop, breathe and focus on yourself. Getting your things together before freaking out and letting the stress eat you alive is crucial.

Being busy and stressed out 24/7 doesn't get you anywhere. See how much happier you become when you find your triggers and remove stress factors out of your life.
