As a commuter student, I've seen my fair share of bad drivers and developed quite a few pet peeves when it comes to other drivers. My biggest one by far: PEOPLE WHO DON'T USE THEIR MOTHERFORKING SIGNAL.

I am not afraid to honk people who switch into my lane without a signal. It's one of the few things I will not simply be passive aggressive over. So for those of you who don't use a signal: here's 9 good reasons to use it - and don't get mad or flip us off if we honk you!

1. God works in mysterious ways so you don't have to

2. No one wants to get in a car crash

3. Don't you want to be safe?

4. Because everyone else in the car wants to feel safe

5. So you're not considered an asshole by other drivers

6. It's way too easy to do

Just move your left hand a teeeny bit and move the rod on that side UP if you're going right or DOWN if you're going left! Easy peasy.

7. You know which way you're going, right?

8. Your fellow drivers aren't mind readers

We don't know what you're thinking!! Without a signal, we don't know which way you're turning or if you're about to switch into our lane.

9. Oh right, IT'S THE LAW.

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
