Aren't You?

People who are bored become punks

Aren't You?
Payton Stark

Sitting down to write this article I have discovered I am bored... I am bored with life, I'm bored with politics, with music of the day, and even with writing these articles. Perhaps that is why I fell in love with punk music, most punks or punk bands are direct results of boredom. Life seems all to mundane to me, and honestly much of it feels like a bore. I just as well have finished up my employment at a local grocery store, and I have to say it felt quiet lifeless most the time. I have no problem with working hard, I actually get a-lot of pride from it. I just don't know if I could live a life of 9-5 like most people. Boredom has slowly crept into my life since a young age as I would sit in school and couldn't help but dream of a time where I would have freedom to be doing what I wanted to do, which was make music. I know making music and designs don't have the security of a comfy desk job, but I'm willing to take a risk to escape the boredom that has begun to suffocate me. I love my friends but most of them don't feel this need to explore like I do, they don't understand my boredom and see no need for creativity in the ways I see a need. I want to get lost in subcultures and music scenes, to find my own hang outs, to explore the east side like my parents did when they met each other. I want to push the envelope knowing its okay to fail, as long as I am creating and attempting to escape the boredom that haunts me. I even at times bore of the things that help me escape this boredom, I don't think we ever can escape the boredom, which in a sense is quiet beautiful. Sometimes ordinary is beautiful sometimes it is good.

Life seems so mundane at times, I wake up go to work, maybe hang with a few friends. Sit down to write one of these articles, and than I have a choice to write about something that excites me (which most people won't care about), or write something that other people will eat up, but I myself feel more inclined to write rather than excite. I don't know if I am really supposed to be writing about how these articles have become a bore, and my style has been very unconventional for this platform but maybe what I have needed to say has been said, and maybe the stuff I want to talk about will only fall on deaf ears. Either way I am always looking for people who feel the same way, who feel like there is more out there, who love to create and explore and are not scared of failure or ridicule. Who are bored of the way people expect them to deliver their thoughts or the things they are expected to say. Also a note to whoever will be editing this please leave it unedited, I know there are errors and I see a few myself, I just feel that it works better in its raw form, sometimes things need to be given to us in their raw form. I have not read through this after writing it, I feel no need to, I have already moved on myself.

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.
