Do you wear your Fitbit or does it wear you?

Fitbit Obsessed

Whether you are a hardcore Fitbit wearer or are just now joining the craze, you end up feeling like it wears you instead of you wearing it. You become dependent on having it on and being able to check different aspects of your daily life.

1. You feel naked without it

You find yourself looking at your Fitbit-less wrist. You go to check the time or your step count and suddenly realize you can't.

2. You don't have the motivation to walk anywhere without it on

Once you realize you don't have your Fitbit on, you lose all motivation to walk anywhere. Your steps are not accounted for, so why even take them?

3. You have a desire to keep record of everything

Whether it be your heart rate throughout the day or how many hours you slept, you want to know it all since you can have it tracked. Having all the information on the app makes it easy to look up thing like the minutes you were active or the miles you have walked.

4. You let the challenges get to you

Someone in your friend group has 100 steps more than you, you have to get 200 just to make sure you are ahead of them. Someone hasn't synced their Fitbit in hours, you are wondering how many steps they have gotten in that time.

5. You need to get that step goal

You are laying down for bed but realize you are just below your step goal. You have the urge to get out of bed and pace around the room to get that goal. You take a longer route because you know you will get 50 more steps than the other way.

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.
