Hey, single people! Have you ever tried blind dates yet? Recently, my perspective towards blind dates has changed. There is a story that explains the change.

I was with this woman in the car. She was supposed to meet with a man at Paris Baguette which is located at the Edison Plaza. She was very excited because she thought that this was the day when she will finally have a man in her life. I was curious about this man as well. I wanted to know how he looks like and how he will treat the woman. We got to Paris Baguette on time at nine o'clock and we just had to wait for the man to arrive.

However, all the stores in Edison Plaza along with Paris Baguette closed. Oh, man. The man did not arrive yet. While I was waiting, I was listening to the conversations between the woman and my mother. I was also playing Candy Crush Saga on my cell phone. I completed lots of levels as I waited. No matter how many levels I completed, the man never showed up. I began to pity the woman because she waited for a very long time. As time passed, she became impatient and she texted him where he was. Sadly, he did not reply back and it was getting late. Gosh, where was this man? It looked like he was never going to show up. I texted my family members about this suspenseful situation and they wondered why the man has not shown up yet. I could have done something at home, but at least I could inform my family about this situation. My family would be wondering why we were not home yet.

Later, it was eleven o'clock. That was two hours from the fixed time. The mysterious man did not show up. My mother and the woman got very angry that they decided to give up on the blind date so that we could finally go home. On the way home, they complained about the man and that they should not rely on blind dates. If he was a true man, then he would have texted back the woman by saying, "Hi. I know that I am very late, but please wait for me a bit longer. There was traffic on the way. I will do everything I can to reach you." So far, we did not receive any further message from him throughout the way home.

When we got back home, the man finally texted saying that he arrived at the plaza. Oh, geez! We just arrived at the house. The reason why he was late was because he got stuck in a muddy puddle. We reacted to his text message with this phrase in our heads, "Are you kidding me? Why did he not text when he started to get stuck?" The man tried to pacify the woman, but the woman did not want to believe him. She broke off with him rather than listen to his excuses. From that moment, my family and I learned that we cannot trust blind dates. Who knows who this man is? Who knows who we would date?

From this anecdote, my perspective towards blind dates is that blind dates make us blind until we see one of these two things. One is seeing who our partners look like. The other is seeing that our wishes in not being single do not come true. So, dear reader, if you are single, do not rely too much on blind dates. They can lower down your expectations in finding your true love.

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.

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.
