Who knew driving could raise your blood pressure so much?

10 Thoughts You Have If You Are Too Fast And Definitely Too Furious
Corrine Harding

Road Rage is a disease that affects many people across the nation, and many of our loved ones can struggle with this every time they hop into their cars. Stay informed and read these 10 symptoms to see if you or someone you know may have this illness.

"Who taught you how to drive?"

Road RageGiphy

There are some "do's" and "dont's" of the road, and the person in front of you definitely doesn't know how to drive.

"Way to use your blinker, buddy!"


There is this mystical device in all cars that communicates to people of where the person will go, and this device is called a blinker or a turn signal (depending on who you are). No matter what you call it, use it.

People going the actual speed limit sends you into a fit.

Angry Giphy

When you are on the interstate, nothing drives you up the wall like when people actually go the speed limit. Who do they think they are actually going the speed limit? If the flow of traffic is moving faster than the number on the sign, do not be the person to slow things down.

"Get out of the left lane if you are not going to drive fast."

Move! Get Out Of The WayGiphy

If you are in the left lane and you are slowing down traffic, then you need to stay in your lane aka the right lane. The left lane is for passing not for driving, Miss Daisy!

"I am going to turn and look at you to show my annoyance."

Stop Light TurnGiphy

When you get the chance to sit side by side to the person who rode your bumper, passed you, and then you ended up meeting up again because they decided to go 10 miles under the speed limit, you take the chance to take a look at them. You must remember their face of who not to be.

"I need to beat this person next to me."

Drag RaceGiphy

As a way to make red lights less miserable, making it a competition helps the people who experience road rage feel a little better. It helps especially when it has been a person literally driving you crazy.

"If I have to sit in traffic for one more minute, I will go crazy in this car."

Let's GoGiphy

Whether it is sitting in gridlock traffic or in a construction zone, wasting time sitting in your car can make any person crazy. You just want to get to your location not sit for 30 minutes while you have no clue why no one is moving.

"I need a glass of water ASAP."


If things have gone bad, you may end up yelling a lot. Having a bottle of water in your car at all times can help combat this constant issue for people who suffer from road rage.

"If this person goes straight, I am for sure turning."


To save some of your sanity and patience, you decide to go a completely different route than the person in front of you to avoid their driving skills (or lack thereof).

"My road rage isn't only while I am driving."

Cart RacesGiphy

If you think that road rage only exists on the road, you are wrong. From walking on the sidewalk to pushing a grocery cart in the store, road rage can happen anytime or anywhere.

As long as your road rage is not hurting others around you, this is not a contagious disease. So far there has been no cure at this time. Some things that can help with road rage for those who suffer is for people to stay away from them and give them the road to themselves. Be smart on the road, don't drive like a crazy person, and seriously just use your turn signal. We all know mistakes and accidents happen while driving, but we all can do our best to not disturb the beasts of road ragers while keeping everyone on the road safe.

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.

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.
