19 Things You Should (And Hopefully Don't Already) Know About Me

Oh, and I actually prefer mountains over the beach.

19 Things You Should (And Hopefully Don't Already) Know About Me
Courtney Chapman

School is starting and fall is getting a little closer. There's something about the end of summer that makes new beginnings seem possible again.

So in the spirit of a new semester and new classes and new beginnings, here's me starting over with where I probably should've started with this thing – a classic get-to-know-you article. In honor of recently turning 19, here are 19 fun facts about me!

I go to Texas A&M University.

You probably already knew this. Gig 'em.

I am a Christian. 

Really hoping you already knew this one!

My favorite color is yellow.

I'm afraid of dogs.

I love people way more than animals.

I love to read.

Since I know you're wondering, I don't really have a favorite book, but my 10th grade English teacher got me hooked on Charles Dickens and other classics, and when I was younger I was obsessed with Nancy Drew.

I'm an introvert, and didn't realize it until this year.

My celebrity crush will always be Ryan Gosling.

A miscellaneous list of things I just really love: musical theater, coffee shops, snail mail, rainy days, trying new foods and meeting new people.

I'm learning Spanish, and hope to study abroad in a Spanish speaking country and become fluent.

¡ Aprender español es divertido!

I consider my ability to shop at thrift stores and off of clearance racks one of my best talents.

I never thought I would say this one, but I legitimately love working out.

This is my favorite vine right now.

Don't ask why. I don't really know either.

I am a type four on the Enneagram.

Here's a little more information about the Enneagram if you are confused.

I listen to One Direction way too much.

My favorite movie is 'Pretty in Pink'.

This movie also became part of the reason I went by "Pinki" this summer at camp.

I played softball for 12 years.

My go-to meal is a cheeseburger and French fries.

By the way, In-n-Out > Whataburger, end of discussion.

 I'm really clumsy.

Hope you fell in love with this post (haha get it?), and now I'm a little less of a stranger writing stuff on the internet!

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.
