55 Thoughts Everyone Has While Shopping

Shopping: one of America's favorite pastimes. Some people hate it and refuse to step inside stores for anything more than a quick grab and dash, but most people love it. As someone who lives in South Florida, where people flock from around the world with empty suitcases to come to our malls, you could say that I'm somewhat of an avid shopper myself. I'm the type of shopper who will stay at the mall for hours and hours until the doors start closing and who will have to run around the mall trying to find an unlocked exit. So the other day, I decided to document my thoughts as I shopped, and here they are.

1. Alright, time to shop! Woo hoo!

2. How much cash do I have, again?

3. How much is on my debit card?

4. How strong are my arms today?

5. I have some comfortable shoes on and can walk for hours!

6. Okay, where to go first?

7. Oh, a sale! Perfect!

8. What the heck, did they switch the guys and girls side?

9. Nevermind, I see a dress.

10. That's way too expensive.

11. That's not enough clothing to cover anyone's body.

12. That's way too baggy for me.

13. Is this a skirt or a shirt?

14. I guess I'll try it on to see.

15. Hm, I still can't really figure it out.

16. How do they have every size but mine?

17. Really? 17 larges and not a single small?

18. I found a small!

19. ...and it's stained.

20. I liked that mannequin's shirt that I saw, maybe I'll look for that.

21. Why can't I find it anywhere?

22. *asks employee* It's not in stock???

23. Oh, there’s a 2 for $20 sale, and this shirt’s $15 otherwise?

24. I guess I should find another one then.

25. But do I reallllllllly wanna have to try it on?

26. Nah, I’ll just buy it now and return it later if I have to.

27. I don’t think I have any shorts that aren’t tight. I’ll get some new ones.

28. ...but what size am I?

29. I’ll just grab like four different sizes, one of them will have to fit me.

30. Hm, I can’t decide between these two bathing suits.

31. Do I really NEED another bathing suit?

32. I’ll ask my friends which they like better.

33. They all said the one I didn’t like as much?

34. I guess I’ll get both and decide later.

35. Wow, pushing clothing on racks really is a workout.

36. Have I really been in this store for an hour and a half already?

37. Alright, gotta go try everything on now.

38. That girl who just walked out has the cutest shirt on! I want it!

39. Are you serious, 'only five things at a time?'

40. Alright, hold these for me, and I’ll try them on next.

41. Oh, this looks so cute!

42. Of course my mom picked this shirt out for me.

43. I think I’m trying on the same shirt as the girl next to me.

44. Mom: "Where are you, Johanna?" Me: "In here!"

45. Mom: "I have seven new shirts and two new shorts for you!"

46. I wish my stomach was a littttttttle flatter for this, but I’ll buy it anyways because #selflove

47. Why did I even pick this out? This looks horrible on me.

48. *leaves dressing room* I have to go switch sizes for these shorts that I was trying on.

49. Dressing room attendant: "You have to wait in line again, then."

50. Ugh...

51. How much money do I have again?

52. Alright, time to calculate how much I can buy.

53. Oh, I forgot about the taxes!

54. I’m kind of hungry now that I think about it.

55. Oh well, next store!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
