If You're A Guy Who Doesn't Watch 'The Bachelor,' Chances Are You're A Bachelor

I'll admit it, I like the Bachelor. I used to think it was a girly show, but my mom hooked both my dad and I on it back on Ben Higgins season. They advertise all of the drama in commercials, but if you really watch the show, it's hilarious. It starts with 30 women all living with each other and competing over the same guy. Now I know girls who are close friends and can't get along for more than a few weeks at a time, so imagine the kind of reality television that comes out of a bunch of girls who don't even know each other living together AND are dating the same guy.

On pretty much every season there's the same makeup of women. You've got a few girls that are really immature, and a few that are ready to get married. Then, there's a few that are always on camera and you know are going to be at the top of the Bachelor's list, and one or two that the producers try to hide until the very end that are almost like the "underdogs." Last, you have the instigator that hangs around until halfway through the series. The instigator is probably the best part of the season. She'll say and do some of the dumbest things that make you think that the whole thing has to be staged. My personal favorite from the instigator list was this crazy chick named Corrine that had a nanny. She was really entitled and it pissed off all of the other women. Hilarious.

This was her, psychopath.

On top of the humor that this show brings, for guys, it is a good way to get inside the heads of girls when it comes to relationships and dating. You can see what they're thinking firsthand and you can get some tips on how to handle different situations. Seriously, even though it isn't "real" dating, there are tons of examples of cool dates to try out, and it shows ways to defuse jealousy situations between girls on nearly every group date.

Another one of the best parts of the season is towards the end when they go home and meet the parents of the top three or so. Imagine meeting the girl you're dating's family for the first time, all while they know that you are dating two other girls besides their daughter. That leads to some of the absolute funniest encounters you'll ever see.

So guys, don't turn the channel when this show is on just because of the girly stigma that comes with it. If you're really that afraid that people will mess with you about it, just watch in secret. You won't regret it.

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.

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.
