Video games are a great way to relax, compete with friends and enjoy a world of endless possibilities. However, they can also become extremely addicting and even the most fictional games can begin to make their way from the disk, into reality. If you relate to the points below, then your favorite games are taking over your life.

1. You try to incorporate dialogue from the game into every other sentence.

People do it with movies too, but gamers seem to take it to a whole new level especially around friends who will get the reference. Like Duke Nukem said, "I came here to chew bubble gum and quote video games, and I'm all out of gum."

2. You attempt to bribe yourself with video games to complete your other goals but usually shortcut to games.

For example, you tell yourself you can't play games till you have studied for an hour.

20 minutes later, you're already three rounds deep in Fortnite.

3.You don't just refill the stapler, you reload it.

I did this probably even before I played a lot of video games because of how silly and fun it is. Also, paperwork is too boring to not do ridiculous things like this.

4. Every time you do something, you imagine you're taking part in a cut-scene.

5. Power tools? More like power weapons

When you go to blow the lawn, you're actually just blowing away a bunch of leaf-shaped aliens with a Gatling gun.

6. You spend more time thinking about video games than anything else.

7. Your dreams are like a hidden level of the game.

We've all had those long days of doing nothing but playing video games followed by a sleepless night dreaming about being inside the video game.

8. Spending hours watching videos on YouTube related to your favorite games

9. Pointing out everything you see that's remotely related to a game

Friend: "Hey the sky is really blue today!"

Me: "You know what else is blue? The color of the vault dwellers' jumpsuits in 'Fallout'"

10. Making some attempt to copy something a character does only to realize it is completely impossible.

11. You are extremely proud to have logged multiple days worth of play time on certain games.

I personally have spent almost three days worth of time playing "Halo 5."

12. You're also more proud of reaching level 100 than getting a 100 in school.

13. You'd rather stay home and play video games online with friends rather than go hang out.

14. However, you're always down for a LAN party

Nothing is more nostalgic than pictures of LAN parties obviously taken very late at night.

15. You've stayed up literally all night playing a game and didn't sleep at all.

16. Your controllers show serious signs of wear and tear.

Some common examples include a smooth scroll wheel on a mouse, letters rubbed off keyboards and controllers that squeak when you hold them because of years of abuse from losing games.

17. You don't give up, you "rage quit."

It happens to the best of us, and we do it even when we aren't playing video games.

If you can identify with any of these scenarios, you are definitely on your way to having your life ruled by video games, and if you're familiar with all of these, then you have already been consumed by video games for good!

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.
