I Quit; Should You?

I watched a video about quitting, now I am and I think you should too.

I Quit; Should You?
Shannon Wolfe

I was scrolling on my Facebook and came across this video title 'I Quit,' so I took a chance and watched it. Now it has stuck with me and I cant get it out of my head. Here's what I learned.

1. Quit Trying To Please Others

Giphy

Make yourself happy. In the end are you going to look back and see how unhappy you were trying to please everyone? If so, would you be okay with that image?

2. Set Your Own Expectations

Giphy

This is something I really need to work on. I am too busy living up to what my parents want from me. Or what my friends expect of me. But, what do I expect of myself? What are the expectations I have?

3. BE SELFISH

Giphy

I cannot express this enough. When it comes to your mental health and your sanity PLEASE BE SELFISH. DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO BE HAPPY. It is more than okay to do this and whoever tells you differently is dumb and you shouldn't be friends with them. rant over.

4. Set Yourself Free

Giphy

Stop bounding yourself to people who are holding you down and keeping you from being successful. You won't be who you were meant to be if you don't break yourself free from them.

5. Wake Up and Make Things Happen

Giphy

Making yourself fit into this box that society has created is BS. Don't strive for perfection, strive for happiness. Wake up, do what you love, stop stressing about small things, go out and make things happen for yourself.

6. Don't Let Your Past Affect Your Future

Giphy

Stop living in the past. There is so much to look forward to in life. If you let the past take over it will just drag you down and keep you down. Let it go, move on, live life.

I linked the video in this post, go click the title, watch it yourself and see what you take away from it. It stuck with me for the last few days and maybe it will for you too. Maybe you watch some of his other videos. Personally, I have fallen in love with his videos and they are wonderful to listen to. Maybe you don't watch it, then at least take something away from this article. Let's create a happy world starting with creating a happy you and a happy me.

Until Next Time,

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
