My Crocs Have Brought Me Luck And I Hope Yours Have, Too

You may not know they are lucky until you put them to the test.

My Crocs Have Brought Me Luck And I Hope Yours Have, Too

Crocs. Those rubbery, hole-filled, shoes that we all wore in elementary school have officially made a comeback and I'm here for it. I may not know why they are now *the* shoe to sport around campus, or on a quick trip to the store, but I do know one thing and that is that they are good luck charms.

Let me tell you about my personal experience with these rubbery lucky charms.

About a year and a half ago, I purchased a pair of camouflage crocs. Of course I didn't pick the most fashionable color/pattern, but it is one that I figured suited me best (and my brother had a pair, so of course I wanted to match him). Of all the times during the year when I could buy them, I bought them on vacation in the middle of July. Was this the brightest decision? No. However, as soon as i put them on in the store, I knew there was something special about them.

I wore my Crocs everywhere for a solid two weeks and then eventually made my way back to my normal shoes. That was, until the start of my first semester of college. I was running late for class, had a test, and needed shoes to quickly slip on before my 9 a.m., so naturally I grabbed my Crocs. This test I was about to take was my first test of my college career.

Jokingly, I sent a Snapchat to my friends of my Crocs and wished for them to bring good luck on my first college exam.

I was not prepared for this exam by any means. I had barely studied, I was running off of little to no sleep, and I did not have my usual Dunkin' Donuts coffee that morning. Clearly, all odds were against me. I received the test and struggled on over half of it, but still had some sort of faith in my Crocs to get me through. Little did I know, my joke turned into reality when my professor uploaded my grade the next morning online and I had gotten an A.

Me in my Crocs after I found out I had gotten an A thanks to my croc's luckiness.

At first, I found this to be pure luck. That was until I didn't wear them one day.

To test my theory of my shoe's magical powers, I continued to wear these Crocs on every day I had an exam. Not once did my Crocs let me down, and they still haven't to this day. A few weeks ago I had an exam and I felt as if I looked ridiculous with my Crocs paired with a nice outfit. Instead of sucking up the fashion clash, I wore my Converse. What did I end up getting on that exam? A 73%. Not my best work, but I blame it all on the fact I was not wearing my Crocs.

Time and time again, these Crocs prove they're a good luck charm to me and I hope every other college student can find their own pair of lucky Crocs too.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
