Why You Should Date The Girl With The Mismatched Socks

(It's a metaphor.)

Why You Should Date The Girl With The Mismatched Socks

I saw a tweet the other day from a random guy that said, "Always date the girl with the mismatched socks... Trust me." And, it made me realize that the mismatched socks is a good metaphor for the kind of girl who has an unorganized, yet prioritized, mind.

It may seem like a far-fetched analogy, but I think an organized sock drawer can represent a girl's ability to prioritize what matters over the trivial nonsense life throws at us. After all, no one really sees your socks anyway.

1. She is carefree.

She doesn't need to have every detail of her life figured out, and that is a beautiful thing.

2. "Where do you want to eat?" She doesn't care.

Going along with the first point, she are not high maintenance. Going to lunch or dinner with her is not about the class of the restaurant or the prices on the menu; it is about spending time together. As frustrating and redundant as that conversation is, it happens because she wants you to be happy, too.

(Tip: it helps if you choose three places you would like to go, then let her choose one.)

3. She keeps things interesting.

A synonym for "mismatched" is inconsistent. Some consistency in life is good, of course, but sometimes that could get boring. A mundane daily, or weekly, schedule is not suitable for her. She wants to try new things and explore new places. Be spontaneous. Keep her, but don't keep a routine.

4. More often than not, she rocks the "sweatpants, hair-tied, chillin' with no makeup on" look.

She is a girl that will wear your hoodies and borrow your sweatpants. She wants to be comfortable and not put in much effort into how she looks -- around the house, anyway. Drake likes the natural look, and you will, too.

5. She doesn't sweat the small stuff.

She does not have a desire to waste time working herself up about trivial matters. If someone she barely knows talks about her, she won't get mad. If she does not do well on a quiz, she will just work harder the next time. She does not sit around organizing her sock drawer when she could be doing something more important.

6. She's comfortable with imperfection.

She is definitely not perfect, but she doesn't mind it. Her hair is usually as messy as her thoughts. However, she knows what she wants and she works toward it. A few bumps along the way, in her life and in your relationship, will not scare her.

7. She doesn't want to grow up.

Girls never match their socks between the ages of 6 and 16; it is almost like an unspoken rule. However, people get older and tend to take responsibility in everything, including sock-matching. A girl who still has no desire to sift through the drawer to find the matching sock will always have a little bit of immaturity in her (in a good way, though).

8. She doesn't have herself all put together.

She's still learning. She's still exploring. She's not ready to settle down. She's trying to find and better herself. Join her on the journey.

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.
