The 5 People You Meet In Heaven AKA 7-Eleven

Do late night trips to everyone's favorite convenience store make you question humanity too?

The 5 People You Meet In Heaven AKA 7-Eleven

Whether you're in desperate need of a refreshing Slurpee, some late night salty snacks, or a pint of Ben and Jerry's, we've all run into some of these questionable people. Honestly, most of us have been these questionable people at least once. Convenience stores in a college town see a lot more action in ~scary hours~. Next time you waltz in those doors and smell the greasy taquitos and frozen Coke, look out for these five people you meet, especially if 7-11 is your version of heaven.

1. The hungry stoner

Nothing cures the munchies more than a wall of chips and candies to choose from. Catch this guy spending more than you do on a "fancy" night out. A college fancy dinner that is.

2. The emotional BFFS

A group of girls stare at the freezer while comforting their friend who just got dumped. They suggest every flavor of ice cream and end up leaving with Juul pods.

3. The overgenerous soccer mom

You're sure to see that one lady loading up on mini Slurpees for all of her son's teammates. If you live in a college town, you'll see the same thing, just a sorority girl treating her sisters, or maybe the frat brothers of her boyfriend.

4. The creepy worker trying to sell you the newest vape

Most of us know our local 7-11 employees by name, but once in a while you catch that weird guy on the night shift. Before asking what you're up to that night or flirting with your friend, he tries telling you about the "sick new mod" they're selling.

5. The girls in bar clothes buying fruity chasers for the two shots of vodka they'll take

The girls in crop tops in the back of the store contemplating buying pink lemonade over pineapple juice will be the same ones acting hammered after two sips of their diluted mixies. Look out for these girls and tell them to be safe tonight. Odds are they get denied at the bar anyways.

Steer clear of numbers 2 and 4, but the rest aren't so bad. I think we can all admit we've at least done one of these things, so next time you feel yourself fitting this description-don't stop, just embrace it. You're definitely entertaining people. My last words of advice are to make sure the Slurpee you want isn't liquid, and that the creepy guy doesn't follow you to your car.

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.
