How To Make A Crappy Situation Even Worse

Instead of pretending to know how to overcome life's difficulties, I’m sticking to an area of my expertise.

How To Make A Crappy Situation Even Worse
The Huffington Post

Life is a series of peaks and valleys. When you’re struggling through a long, treacherous valley you should push forward, looking ahead with hope and determination, knowing that you will eventually reach a peak. With patience and courage, the journey will eventually be worth your effort.

Personally, I know nothing about that. I prefer to cope by throwing an enormous tantrum or shutting out the people who care about me the most. So instead of pretending to know how to overcome difficulties, I’m sticking to an area of my expertise: How to make a crappy situation even worse.

Consume more than half your body weight in snacks within 30 minutes.

Bring on the fake cheese, the cookie dough, and the sour gummies. Filling the emotional void within you via calories is the most delicious way to feel guilty in addition to sad.

Take your feelings out on inanimate objects.

Punch whatever is in reach—your laptop screen, a brick wall, your roommate’s poster of Deadpool. See? You’ve just made yourself a much more complicated evening than you would have had otherwise.

Throw a tantrum in the middle of a supermarket like a very small, hangry child.

Snot-crying in front of total strangers is always an interesting social experiment.

Retreat to the land of Netflix.

Your actual friends are trying to be there for you, but they can’t find you because you’re buried under a burrito of blankets watching Rachel and Ross, whispering, “They were on a break.”

Wipe your wallet clean for retail therapy.

Shopping the Old Navy spring sale with no inhibitions was all fun and games until you checked your bank account the next day. #mywalletisasemptyasmyheart

Make an unfortunate tattoo decision.

No ragrets. Not even a letter.

All jokes aside, getting through tough times does take patience and courage. Based on the fact that you read this article to the end, you’ve got at least a bit of that. You are a strong, resilient individual, and you’re going to get through your crappy situation. Unless you actually harmed your roommate’s Deadpool poster, in which case, you're a monster.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
