The Pro

The Pro is probably the first type of shopper you will see, probably because they are usually the first in line- hours before the doors even open.You can usually find them sitting in their lawn chairs with blankets, drinks, and snacks. They typically scout the ads weeks before the sale and know all the best deals. They have a list of everything they are going after in each store and have already price matched items between stores. Like most people on a mission, they usually travel in packs. These shoppers often make this a family event and bring their relatives. If they're really a pro, each person in the family will be assigned an item to go get.

The Unprepared

Black Friday Shopper Who Couldn't Handle the RushThe Crazy Coupon Lady

The unprepared shopper is one who has done this before, but not for very long. This person knows the stores they want to shop at, but don't quite have it mapped out like the Pro. They know the items they want to purchase but haven't price matched and likely aren't getting the best deals out there. They can be found near the middle of the line with no supplies such as extra jackets and hand warmers and don't have any chairs. These shoppers can usually be found in couples by themselves as the wander around the stores looking for the items they think they want to purchase, before putting at least half of them back.

The Last Minute Shopper

The last minute shopper has no idea what they are doing. Likely, a family member called them a few hours before the rush started and invited them to tag along. These families are likely pro shoppers who are inviting someone extra to have on their team. These shoppers have no items in mind they plan on purchasing, but are the ones who usually get caught up in the midst of the madness and end up purchasing things that aren't on their Christmas shopping list in the first place. They probably don't even know stores have maps for shopping frenzy and wander around completely lost; they have no idea that the tvs can be found in the grocery section. These shoppers are probably still wearing their dress clothes and heels to shop in, instead of comfy shopping clothes.

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.

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.
