10 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Hate Me For Being A Bad Texter

Don’t let my terrible messaging skills define how much I value our relationship/friendship.

1. I promise it’s not personal.

"It's not you, it’s me." But really though, it's one of my many faults. I promise I don't mean to do it.

2. I’m just better at talking when face to face.

You know that when we meet, I will spill my guts out and talk about everything and anything.

3. It’s just more natural for me to be present, in the moment than on my phone.

I literally have to TRY to stop and take time to reply. I don’t know how people can automatically message back. I genuinely believe it's a skill.

4. I even go 1-2 months without talking/messaging my own parents!

All my family members live very independent lives. We all do our own thing. Maybe it's the way I was raised?

5. Just because I’m a bad texter, you can’t say that I’m not intentional and that I don’t care.

I might not show my love and attention through how I message, but you know that I show it through other ways!

6. I'm incapable of messaging one person throughout the day, 24/7, all day.

Trust me, I've really tried. I can maybe get a maximum of one or two days of constant messaging, but then I'm back to normal.

7. Small talk on text is so hard for me.

Small talk in person is no problem. But when it comes to small talk on messages, I just can’t seem to keep the conversation going.

8. Feel free to call me.

I enjoy talking on the phone! It isn’t that I don’t find our conversations important when messaging, I just really suck at texting.

9. If it’s really urgent, I really really do try hard to text back as soon as possible.

If it's urgent, I'm there. But then again, if something is urgent, we should probably be calling.

10. I promise you are a very important person to me, even though we don’t message often.

Don’t let my terrible messaging skills define how much I value our relationship/friendship.

Trust me, it isn’t that I’m not trying enough, that I don’t find our conversations important, or that I don’t care enough. It’s just more natural for me to call or talk face to face. I’ve tried and tried to be a better texter but I'm incapable. I admit it, I’m a terrible texter. It's one of my many faults! Please don't hate me for it.

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.

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.
