Self-Proclaimed Nice Guys Have Destroyed The World

This is an article for all the fellas out there. It's mostly advice for the guys who can't seem to find that girl. Gentlemen, if you feel like you're a good guy and no one notices, read this. Ladies, if you have ever experienced (or know) a guy like this, make him read this too. Might do some good.

Let's start with the obvious: You're scared. Look at this missed connection below:

I sent this picture to some girls I know and asked what they'd do in this girl's position. Overwhelmingly, they all said something to the effect of: "Why couldn't he just talk to me there? Kind of creepy." This is the greatest fault of the kinds of guys who do this: their actions, no matter how well-meaning or even sweet in nature, end up coming across as creepy. Chances are, this dude didn't get a response (because only people like him browse missed connections). And it's sad because maybe he was a really sweet guy. But that girl, and potentially many other girls he's come across, will never know that because he's too scared to speak up.

It's frightening to speak up, I get it. I've been in that position many times. Sometimes I go and talk to her, other times I get too nervous and end up not saying anything. But those times when I talk to her? They're awesome. Usually, it doesn't pan out, but at least I've got that experience under my belt. So, why can't you? Besides, you seem more friendly if you start the conversation.

So, Golden Rule: Just say Hey

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.
