7 Ways To Survive The Dreaded 'Personality Season'

During a recent talk with a friend about the upcoming winter season, she said it was "personality season." At first, I was super confused as to what she meant by it, but as soon as I thought about it for a few minutes I could not stop laughing. Gone are the days of impressing people with your beach body and tan skin. Say hello to covering every inch of your now pale skin to shield from the freezing temperatures we are headed straight for.

As we enter the season of marshmallow coats, heavy boots, and scarves that could tangle us up, personalities become more and more imporant in the dating world.

1. Have a sense of humor

Instead of relying on your hairstyle use you sense of humor to win people over. Everyone loves a good laugh.

2. Show enthusiasm

People who are enthusiastic about sports, school, animals, a tv show, or just life in general are automatically more attractive.

3. Be nice

Simple, but guess what? People like nice people. What's more enjoyable, talking to someone who is rude and full of themselves, or someone who is nice and listens to you when you talk?

4. Be thoughtful

People want to be cared about. Make it known when you think about and care about someone.

5. Have ambition

Talk about what you want to do with your life. People want to know your hopes and dreams.

6. Listen when other people talk

Everyone wants to feel like what they are saying matters so pay attention when its the other person's turn to talk. Don't just pretend to listen, actually hear what they are saying.

7. Know the difference between confidence and cockiness

Being sure of yourself is sexy, but stay wary of crossing the line over to being full of yourself.

Personality season is among us and its time to amp up your game. Underneath that wool sweater and fuzzy socks lies an amazing person, get out there and show yourself off!

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.
