Things That Drive 'Type A' People Insane

Here's a list of things that will drive your outgoing friends insane.

Things That Drive 'Type A' People Insane

1. Being Late

Never ever ever make a us late. If you're early you're on time. If you're on time you're late. If you're late you better hope you aren't.

2. Last minute changes

Our days are planned out down to the very last second of the day. We don't have time for last minute changes.

3. Having to rely on other people

We're quite alright with doing things ourselves and probably prefer it to be that way.


We don't have time to get caught by anything moving slower than we are. Odds are we're rushing to our next event.

5. When classes/meetings/events go long and throw our schedules off

We'll try to sit there and act like everything is fine when inside we're really dying to get up and leave because we can't be late to our next event. (Refer to #1 and #2)

6. When people start to turn their tests in before us and we still have a long way to go

How are people done already?! I haven't even hit the halfway point! We will forever suffer from test anxiety.

7. When people don’t respond to a text/email right away

Odds are we need that question answered or a response is needed right away so the real question we ask when you don't respond is is WHERE ARE YOU?!

8. Waiting on our friends to make plans

We feel more and more irritated and anxious as each minute goes by. We really do not like to waste a single second of our day. But don't worry, we'll be ready to go as soon as you are!

9. When we feel like we aren’t being heard

We definitely have an opinion on whatever you're talking about and we always have a story to tell and if we feel like nobody is listening we want to scream!

10. Dealing with incompetence

What do you mean you don't understand or that you couldn't get that task done? This is one of our many flaws but that's how we work.

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.
