I Am Not Ashamed Of Having A Sweet Tooth

Sugar and sweets are some of the things that make me happy, with moderate consumption.

I Am Not Ashamed Of Having A Sweet Tooth

Indulging in sugar and sweets has always been a thing I would do as a kid, and this habit has transitioned into my early life as an adult. Besides my love for caffeine I have developed as a college student (thanks, coffee), I would still indulge in the sweets I used to eat as a kid. Some of these sweets include candies like chocolate and gummies. As people know, too much sugar is not good for the human body. Yet, I know when to cut my limits down with sugar, and having a sugar addiction isn't as bad as having an addiction with other substances that can produce more serious consequences.

To start off, having a small addiction or craving to sugar isn't as bad as it seems. As long as someone consumes it once and then is it alright. It is much better to have a small craving or addiction to sugar rather than other negative substances including alcohol or drugs. I would much rather pay a visit to the dentist for having one or two cavities as opposed to having a life with an increased risk for cancer, and my brain cells being killed when I consume alcohol. An addiction to drugs and alcohol can tear friendships apart, while an addiction to sugar can actually bring people together such as going out for ice cream, or buying chocolate at a candy shop.

I know I am not the only person who has a small addiction. There are many people out in the world who love to indulge in sugary snacks. For me, I love treating myself whenever I should celebrate. Some forms of celebration include acing a final exam, finishing a long day of school, and when I received good news in my life like landing a good job. One moment I remember when treating myself out was when I found out I was selected to be a facilities assistant at DePaul. The process was extremely competitive, and I treated myself and bought gummy bears. The way I celebrate accomplishments is by satisfying my sweet tooth.

It's important to consume things in moderation, and I want people to indulge in something and treat themselves to what their interests and likes are. I want people to be happy, and you should be happy when you accomplish something. A way I make myself happy is with indulging with sweets, and I am not ashamed of this.

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.
