An Open Letter From An ENFP

To you from me

An Open Letter From An ENFP
Peigh Manry


I am an ENFP.

I'm a weird lil bean. Sometimes I have too much enthusiasm for my own good. Sometimes I get a little loud. Sometimes I go overboard with the energy, and I can't help it. I just want everyone to be happy!

I live for human connection.

Listening is something that I enjoy greatly-- I love getting to know people better. Tell me about that festival you went to last year, or about the time where a random stranger proposed to you in a Chick Fil' A. That story about that time you went to a cat shelter and petted kittens for an hour? Not even a little boring! ENFP's are curious individuals and genuinely want to know the 4-1-1, whether or not it's juicy.

I'm a worrywart. I worry about everything, from stressing too much about whether or not I turned off the stove this morning, to how my uncle is doing back home. I overanalyze every single text-- I get paranoid over someone's tone of voice, and sometimes even the kind of emojis they use. I have a big heart, and occasionally it backfires on me, but that's okay. Sometimes things just don't work out the way we want them to.

We are fiercely independent individuals, which is a problem sometimes because I have trouble opening up to people. It's mostly my own fault really-- many a time I've set my expectations too high and end up disappointing myself. Being independent also means that I'm extremely adaptable, therefore moving from one side of the globe to settling down in the other was a walk in the park.

I am a searcher. One of many. We are never fully content because we constantly wonder about what else is out there, and how far the potential of the universe can soar. I aspire to be a giver-- a giver of love, a giver of good vibes, and a giver of strength. I am inspired to inspire. My sadness is a factor in my life just as present as my happiness is, because I believe that a grey sky is just as important as a clear blue one. We strive to help ourselves as well as everyone else to embrace the quirkiness life brings, and mostly-- we want to love and be loved.

Come ask me where my joy comes from.

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.

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.
