Say hello to your new emperor: Hermione Granger.

Why Nerds Will Take Over The World

With the recent surge of Pokémon GO, nerds have shown not only intellectual ability but athletic mastery as well (once thought to be untouchable to academics). Because of this phenomenon, geeks have a chance to swoop in and save the 2016 Presidential election. How? By usurping the role of world leader. Don't believe me? Shove those coke-bottle glasses up the bridge of your nose and take a peek at your new candidate for torchbearer of the globe.

"Geeks have a chance to swoop in and save the 2016 Presidential election."

They have an expansive memory and vocabulary.

During my childhood, I held Pokemon players with high esteem because they knew every character name, power, and elemental constitution. Because over 700 exist, knowledge of at least 2100 facts in one area of study alone impresses me.

A nerd could take over the world through acts of espionage. Spies must have immense recollection abilities to remember codes and information about an enemy's weaknesses. If they know three flaws in 700 leaders of countries, they can "catch (and defeat) em all" before Pokemon Go improves their servers.

Nerds work well in teams (or armies).

Any gathering of Dungeons and Dragons or Quidditch teams at colleges proves the power of a nerdy army. A shared enthusiasm and dedication to one subject renders an intellectual team nearly unstoppable. Want to clash with a nerd who owns a sword in his trunk and a crossbow in the hood of his car? How about a group of ten? One hundred? Didn't think so . . .

They fly under the radar.

No one suspects the under spoken kid in glasses. Because teachers adore them -- they could get away with murder (in even more than their fanfiction novel). A nerd can easily eliminate any competition for world domination.

Nerds speak in languages commoners can't comprehend.

Doctor Who jargon and twirls of the tongue at medieval fairs squash the brains of ordinary peasants. Because nerds share a common language, others cannot decipher their plans to conquer society. By the time the FBI discovers a translation, the entire world will speak the lingo of the new leader.

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.
