Being Both Introverted and Extroverted, We Encounter These 9 Things

Being both an extrovert and an introvert is complicated but we're living in the best of both worlds.

Being Both Introverted and Extroverted, We Encounter These 9 Things

When people ask us whether we would consider ourselves an introvert or an extrovert, we take painfully long to answer. Why not be both? We can be super outgoing at times, but some days we can also be shy, observing in the distance.

In society, we apparently don't exist, but we do. It might sound contradicting, ironic even, but we come in peace. It's the best of both worlds, really. Here are some things that we encounter.

1. You make plans for Friday night, but when the time actually comes, you realize you'd rather stay in and binge-watch some Netflix.

This is your 3rd week in a row you canceled on them, but it's okay.

2. You're having a socially productive day, talking to everyone and anybody. Then the next day, you just listen.

You've gone suddenly mute.

3. You want to be invited everywhere with your friends, even though you know you won't be going.

I think they're catching on.

4. You freeze up when someone asks you to do something because you're not sure if you want to or not...

Going out might be good for me, but the thought of staying in sounds better.

5. You come up with excuses way too much.

I forgot I have to go take a nap.

6. You spend a lot of time all by yourself.

Oh yeah.

7. But when you do go out, it's a good time.

To do list:

[X] socialize.

8. After you spend the day out with friends, at work, or at school, it's just too much communication with humans for one day.

You just need to rejuvenate for a moment or two.

9. At the end of the day, you are exhausted from it all.

You feel good, but you're happy to be back home in your own bed.

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.
