10 Self-Discoveries You Make When You Take The Enneagram Personality Test
Avery Owens

According to the enneagram test, I am a "one wing two." Those of you who are enneagram fanatics suddenly know so much more about me. On the other hand, those of you who have no idea what the enneagram is are completely lost.

I am not claiming to be an enneagram expert at all. I have not read the books, and I only recently jumped on the bandwagon. I am a newbie who is slowly learning more about the test every day. Here is what I do know — the enneagram test is a series of questions that allows one to gain a better understanding of himself and how they interact in relationships with other people.

The test assigns you a "type," and from there you can learn so much about yourself. Your "type" helps you discover your weaknesses, strengths, tendencies under stress, tendencies under growth, what type your most compatible with... the information is endless.

Ever since I have been introduced to the test, I have experienced so much personal growth. The test is both convicting and freeing. It allows you to appreciate the way that Jesus has created you, and it highlights the sin that you can pray against. Here are some reasons that I believe everyone should take the test:

1. It improves your self-awareness

2. You gain insight into others' tendencies and habits

3. You learn how to improve the relationships around you

4. You know what sins to pray against in your life

5. You know what gifts to thank God for

6. You are alerted of potential issues between two types and how to avoid such conflict

7. You gain an appreciation for who you are

8. You become more understanding towards others

9. You experience personal growth

10. You have so much to learn about yourself and others, which can be exciting

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.

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.
