10 Signs You're The Girl With Self-Diagnosed Time Anxiety

Time is such a weird concept. I'm so aware of time, especially since everything is based on timing. Class, appointments, interviews, dates, etc. And I'm one who always wants to be on time, and if I'm not, it freaks me out. I'm not sure if time anxiety is a real thing, but here are some ways you might have it too.

1. You get ready to leave early

Even if you know it only takes 20 minutes to get ready, you end up getting ready an hour beforehand anyway.

2. You plan out what time to wake up so you can leave on time

Depends on how long it takes for you to get somewhere.

3. You plan out how long it's going to take to get somewhere, then add five minutes

What if there's a train or a traffic jam?

4. You think about how long it's going to take to walk into your destination

Because that's still travel time!

5. You expected to be the first one to arrive

And on time or before.

6. Your friends are shocked if you're late

Because you're always early.

7. You get an uneasy feeling if you know you're going to be late

And become stressed.

8. You check maps to figure exactly how long it's going to take to get somewhere

Usually accurate.

9. You speed

Sorry, but gets me places faster.

10. Your friends think you're crazy

Sorry for wanting to be on time when I go somewhere...

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.

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.
