From One 'Bad' Driver To The Next

Maybe it's just because you make a few more mistakes than a "good driver" which then qualifies you as bad.

From One 'Bad' Driver To The Next

You love having the freedom of going places. You love being in control. You love the alone time and listening to music. You love to drive. But, from one "bad" driver to the next, you know that someone else always ends up doing the driving instead of you.

Even though someone else may end up actually doing the deed, you shouldn't stop having the same opinions about driving, you may just have to alter them. You still get to have the freedom of going places whenever you want. You don't get to be in total control, but if you are lucky enough to be the co-pilot, that is close enough, right? From one "bad" driver to the next, you take what you can get when it comes to driving.

Okay so, you realize that you don't get to actually do the driving most times, and that is good to recognize in this process. You understand at this point that someone else usually takes the wheel. From one "bad" driver to the next, this isn't the worst thing in the world to have to accept.

Once you realize you may be bad at parking, you may forget to turn on your headlights, you may excessively cut people off, or you might even just lack focus all together, you should learn to fix these things and you could turn bad driver into rad driver. From one "bad" driver to the next, you might not find this to be the most possible task, but at least try it!

Personally, this label doesn't bother me a bunch. Yeah I'll admit that I have my off moments in driving, but I always get to where I need to go as safely as possible. It doesn't particularly bother me that no matter how big the room full of people, I will always let another person offer to drive so that I do not have to. From one "bad" driver to the next, it's okay if a decision like this is simply made for you.

With all this in mind, the next time you are told that you are not driving and someone else is, you can take this as an opportunity to sit back, relax and let a friend take you to your destination safely. From one "bad" driver to the next, if there are people who are better at driving than you, it's okay because you can just enjoy the ride without worry.

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.
