To The Person In My Unofficial Assigned Seat

There's a special place in hell for people who steal another person's designated seat.

To The Person In My Unofficial Assigned Seat

It's just a normal Tuesday morning in the blissful serenity that is life. I wake up, watch a bunch of snap stories, get ready for my day, and venture out to grab life by the wrist and take it for a ride. Ahh, college. What a time to be alive. Life is but a dream.

I walk into class -- something I could do without, but you gotta do what you gotta do. And then, it happens.

At first, I look around to make sure I'm in the right class. Then, I check the time and make sure I didn't accidentally set my clock back an hour or so, for whatever reason. Logic doesn't exist anymore. Then the panic starts to set in and I fear being in a parallel universe where apparently no one has any mannersand just takes a seatthat obviously belongsto me!

We are five weeks into the semester. For five weeks we've come to the same classroom at the same time and sat in the same seats. And now, right in the cusp of our youth, I get this curveball thrown my way. What did I do to deserve this? How am I supposed to go on with my day when I've already experienced this trauma so early on in it?

Reality hits. And I have to start accepting the fact that I just won't get to sit in my seat today because some guy in a Supreme hat and Patagonia sweater forgot the way the world works. I can pretty much forget taking in any information and learning during class because my mind's all wrapped around the fact that there are people in this world who don't respect unofficially assigned seating arrangements.

So here's my message to you, and every other seat thief out there. We live in a world filled with oppression, war, and sadness. One of the few solaces we have out there is a common courtesy known among college students to respect one another's seat checks. If we don't have that, what do we have? You owe it to your country to stop being the awful human you are and to stick to your own seat all semester. Do it for the children.

With contempt,

Rightful owner of the unassigned seat

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
