Less Indecisive, More Impulsive

I want to be able to make more decisions on the fly.

Less Indecisive, More Impulsive

I've always been so indecisive whenever it came to making decisions. Hell, I still am and it sucks.

Whenever I have to make a choice on the spot, I totally freak out since I don't want to make the wrong one. The way I see things, it's important to thoroughly think before I can possibly make a logical decision. Weighting the pros and cons is something that I do often if I have the time to think things through.

However, I also think that it's crucial to be impulsive at times.

From witnessing others being spontaneous with their judgments, it shows that they know what they want, and they have enough courage to be confident with their instant decisions. They are able to be quick and seamless.

That's how I want to be.

For instance, I've been debating for the longest time on whether or not I should get my nose pierced. The debate seemed almost endless, stemming back to my junior year in high school. The idea kept resurfacing in the back of my mind. I would overthink it until I would eventually just talk myself out of getting it done.

Similarly, I've been iffy about getting a tattoo. I've looked at plenty of ideas and even considered designing my own. I told myself I would have to want the same design for about a year, even longer to confirm that it's really the one I would want for the rest of my life.

I believe that my issue intertwines with the concept of committing, the fear of not wanting to be attached to something or someone. The word permanent just gives me cold feet.

I haven't yet thought too much of one particular tattoo design, probably because I'm still afraid to face my doubts. Though, I have recently gotten a nose stud, completely shocking myself.

One day after my class, I was about to head to my usual coffee shop, but instead, I took a turn on the highway. The thought of doing something without much planning, worrying, or reflecting was stimulating.

I broke through my comfort zone, which felt great like I was going somewhere.

I don't always have to analyze everything and be cautious. I need to be more decisive about what I want, need, and should do.

I need to trust my judgments more often because when I do, I feel free.

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.
