A Letter To My Resting Bitch Face

I promise that I'm not mad! I'm just thinking!

A Letter To My Resting Bitch Face

Dear Resting Bitch Face,

How ya doin', RBF? You're the very common, angry expression that is my face. You and I go waayyy back. You have a long history of making me appear furious with the world around me, so mad at everything and everyone, even though I'm just chillin' over here. You always show up in pictures with me and people associate us together.

You always make me look mad. Or like I want to "murder everyone." Or like "the world has ended and my family died." But I'm usually never not feeling like that- let alone mad. I'm just thinking really hard about my delicious morning coffee or when/ where I can take a nap and my thinking face happens to look like I hate everyone who ever existed.

You don't intend to make me look upset, or angry, or annoyed. You kinda just happen. I honestly could be the happiest gal on the planet at any given time, but you make me look like the meanest, angriest gal on the planet.

I sometimes feel bad that I have you, but then I realize all of the famous people who have you, too. Queen Elizabeth, Angela Merkel, Victoria Beckham, Kristen Stewart, Drake, April from Parks and Rec, Kanye, Rihanna, Anna Wintour, Simon Cowell, Keira Knightley, Eminem, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick and so many more. Why do you do this to us? I don't know why you pop up on our faces, you just do. I'm not mad at you, (though everyone else seems to think that I'm always irate at someone) but I don't want to always look bothered.

To all those out there without resting bitch face, come talk to us. I know that we RBFers might seem like real meanie heads, but we are cool people! Our faces usually don't reflect how we actually feel. It is sad to think that people might avoid us because they think that we hate them even though we don't- we are just thinking about something else. If you want, we can teach you how to pout like a pro. When in doubt, pout it out.

So, RBF, you don't reflect the reality of my feelings. Why do you make my casual, resting face seem like I'm plotting murder? C'mon man....

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
