8 Qualties That Should Never Go Unnoticed

Qualities that should be noticed, whether you're a girl or a boy.

8 Qualties That Should Never Go Unnoticed

I recently read the 10 Things College Girls Do That College Guys SHOULD Appreciate, But Don't article. The title immediately grabbed my attention and sparked my curiosity to see what the list would consist of. I had a couple of points in my mind that I was hoping to see in this written piece. When I finished reading the article I was disappointed. I was disappointed most of the points were shallow and not really qualities that were important. While I strongly agreed with some of the points, I was disappointed to find it was followed by a silly reasoning as to why it was important. So I decided to write my own my personal list, ‘8 Qualities That Should Never Go Unnoticed'

1. A Good Work Ethic

A person who works hard is definitely something everyone should notice. Hard work deserves to be praised and noticed. A strong work ethic shows that person cares about their job, it shows their motivation and drive to do well and succeed. And overall, why wouldn’t you notice someone who works hard?

2. A Healthy Lifestyle

This was one of the points of the article I agreed with. Finding time for the gym for anyone is hard. In between balancing a full time or part time job, school, family, friends, and other responsibilities... It’s hard to find time to commit to the whole shower, food, and gym routine. It shows dedication to making time for the gym and determination to work a little bit harder to live a healthier lifestyle. In addition, while eating healthy is more expensive it also benefits you as well. Replacing sugar and salt with fiber and protein is a little more costly, but in the long run your body will appreciate it. So people who try and live a healthy lifestyle are definitely the kinds of people who are driven, motivated, and goal oriented.

3. The Way Someone Treats Other People

From the moment we enter Pre-K we’re taught to be nice and give other people respect. Well as you get older, it begins to show your character as a person. If you treat people poorly, it shows more on you than it does the person you’re being disrespectful too. For example, the way someone treats their parents or waiters/waitresses shows a lot about them. People who are respectful to strangers and their loved ones is someone who probably holds good morals and values.

4. A Sense of Adventure

A sense of adventure is something I always notice in people because I love to adventure. A sense of adventure shows the drive to explore new places and try new things. In addition it makes that person fun to hang out with and you’ll never be bored. That persons curiosity is always churrning and just awaiting the next destination. Someone who enjoys adventuring will invite you to join them in their experiences and will introduce you to new things as well!

5. The Way They Present Themselves

Are they outgoing and friendly or cold stoned and rude? While you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, let’s be honest, we’re human. We make judgements and first impressions are important! So is this person brushing you off not giving you the time of day, or putting in an effort to keep the conversation going? It’s also nice to have a conversation with someone where it doesn’t feel forced or uncomfortable.

6. A Sense of Humor

Everyone is different and looks for different qualities, but never let a sense of humor go unnoticed. People who are funny are usually great in crowds. They use their humor to make friends and get to know people. A good sense of humor also shows that they don't take life too seriously and just want to laugh and have fun. Plus who doesn’t like someone who can make them laugh?!

7. Someone Who Has Hobbies

Someone who has hobbies outside of their phone and friends is someone who clearly makes time for something they love. Plus who knows! Maybe you can share a similar hobby with someone. Hobbies tell a lot about a person, it shows they’re passionate and enjoy making free time for something they clearly care about. In addition, you never know what hobbies you could be introduced too as well!

8. A Great Smile

Statistics show that smiling can boost your mood, immune system, relieves stress, and are the universal sign of happiness. So if you ask me, someone who smiles is someone who will definitely be noticed more than someone who doesn't. So smile!

And this concludes the end of my list! These are 8 qualities I feel shouldn't go unnoticed whether you're a boy or girl. Qualities that we should look for in friends AND relationships!

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
