The Stages Of The Group Chat

A blessing and a curse

The Stages Of The Group Chat

If you have a cellphone, you've probably been in a group chat from time to time. Even though it sounds like an easier way to communicate, it comes with its ups and downs. Everyone loves the group chat, until they go through the following stages:

Making sure everyone is added

If your friend group is like mine, theres a lot of people to be added. The first step of the group chat is to make sure everyone is accounted for. Once this is covered, the fun can begin

Naming the group chat

This is an important task. The name of the group chat has to work on all levels and apply to everyone in the chat. But there is always that one friend that names it something too inappropriate to have pop up on your screen at any given moment or someone who copy and pastes song lyrics as the title

When the jokes are fire

Everyone is contributing and the chat is HILARIOUS. The topics are changing so fast you need to type for your life to get your joke in before it’s too late

Responding in Memes

Eventually, the chat turns from texting to finding random funny pictures online. This is arguable the best part. Who knew you could roast someone with pictures of a penguin?

The chat is starting to get old

You step out of a ten minute shower to 456 text messages. At first, they're talking about the night out last night and when you finally are able to contribute it has switched to “Look at these puppies on YouTube”

You Ignore the phone to get away

By now you don’t really care what everyone is saying, you just want to binge on Netflix so you silence your phone. It seems like a great idea until you have 3 missed calls from your mom

4 am freak out

It’s 4 am and the group chat is going off every two seconds. You send a text saying to shut up but that just makes them text more. *internal screaming*

It’s time to quit

Finally you’ve had enough and decide to hit the leave group button with little to no emotion. You feel a huge weight has been lifted as you sit in silence for more than 20 seconds

You’re bored now

You’re free from the chat, but you have nothing to do. You hate it but you just can’t get enough. You text your friend to let you back in and the whole cycle starts again.

bruce springsteen album cover born in the usa

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
