If It Doesn't Affect Me I Honestly Just Don't Care

Don't mind me minding my own.

If It Doesn't Affect Me I Honestly Just Don't Care
Sharon Garcia

This has nothing to do with politics, my friends and family, or big issue topics, this has everything to do with just minding my own business. It's plain and simple, if it doesn't affect me I just don't care.

If you have a secret don't tell me, if you're looking to gossip go tell someone else, unless someone is dying on the floor, keep whatever it is to yourself. There is nothing THAT interesting going on in someone else's life that I need to know about it.

If someone blabs I don't want to be attached to that secret, I want absolutely no traces back to me because I'm not about to take the fall for someone else's big mouth.

I don't understand the obsession people have with wanting to know every single detail about other people's lives. Now, I'm not perfect and if I hear something juicy I'm probably going to tell someone, but guess who my secret keeper is... my mom. I am not about to tell so-and-so down the street and expect her to keep it private.

Or if I'm feeling nosy I just turn on the Kardashians and I'm satisfied for the next month. At least they know what they're saying is going to be spread to the world, your friends that you're spilling the beans about didn't sign up for that.

Anytime someone (especially someone I'm not even close with) starts going on about another person, I immediately check out. I'll pick up my phone, go to the bathroom, or just straight up ignore them.

Gossiping, in my opinion, is a sign of insecurity. If your pastime is choosing who the talk of the town is for today then you're probably just trying to take the attention off of yourself. You're trying to get everyone focused on another person so that people don't start talking about you.

Grow up. Worry about yourself. Personally, I am too busy with school, work, friends, and worrying about graduation to even begin to think about what is going on in somebody else's life.

Not only that but no one is perfect. How can you judge someone for something when you make mistakes too? Last time I checked Jesus was the only one who's perfect from head to toe so you might want to reevaluate how you're living your life before you start to judge another's.

Bottom line, just live your life and go on. I can promise that once you stop stressing yourself out over what everyone else is doing you're going to become so much happier. Life is way too short to not take care of yourself.

Have a night in with your loved ones, or a Sunday fun-day with your best friends, just enjoy life right now because it could be gone tomorrow. When you get older you're not going to remember all that he-said-she-said talk anyways, you're going to look back and remember all the good things that happened in your life, so stop wasting moments that could be made making memories with the people you 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.

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.
