12 Lies We've All Told At Some Point In Our Lives

Has anyone ever REALLY read the terms and conditions?

12 Lies We've All Told At Some Point In Our Lives

We've all told white lies before, right? You know you have, and you've probably said these 12 exact lies, to yourself and to other people.

Yes, I want my copy of the receipt


We say yes, but we don't need it. We KNOW it's going to end up crumpled on the floor of our cars or at the bottom of a bag somewhere.

Oh shoot, I left my homework at home/on the bus/in my locker


Yes I did it, but I left it at home. Classic cop-out response to get half credit on homework assignments we didn't do

I have read and understood the terms and conditions


HAHAHA no I did not read that 40 page size 3.5 font document, but imma click the box anyway.

One more episode


*an entire 10 episode season later* ...

I'm on my way


Translation: soon I'll be in the car and THEN I'll be on my way.

Yeah, I floss twice every day

Does anybody ever actually remember to floss twice a day? I definitely don't, but that's not what I tell my hygienist.

That baby is SO adorable!

Let's be real with each other. All babies look the same, first of all, and they also all kind of look like smushed marshmallows.

No, I don't have any other questions


This actually means, "I am so lost that I don't even know what I don't know".

I'll do it in the morning


No, you won't.

 That looks great on you

It doesn't exactly look bad either though, so we'll go with great

 Thank you so much I love it

Translation: I really have no use for this and it will end up at the bottom of my closet, but thank you anyway!

 My phone died


Nope, you just didn't want to leave your house.

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.
