Picture this, your hair is perfectly pin-straight, your heels are pretty much impossible to walk in, and you are 5 shots deep before heading off to the bars with your girlfriends. All of a sudden, the unthinkable happens.

It starts to rain.

You easily whip out your Uber app, charge your friends who you are splitting the fare with, and patiently wait 5-10 minutes for your mysterious driver to pick you up. How is this ride going to go? Will the driver be cute? What if he smells the alcohol off my breath?

Uber is all fun and games once you receive the "Your Uber's Here" notification when you are with your girlfriends heading off to the bars. Ladies, we all KNOW we are guilty of bothering our Uber driver with these embarrassing phrases.


1."So.... how long have you been an Uber driver?"

2. "Whats your name? Tim? Have you driven to any cool spots yet tonight, Tim?"

3. "Do you have any funny stories you could tell us?"

4. "What is your favorite part about being an Uber driver?"

5. "You could come to the bar with us if you want, you seem pretty chill."

6. *Screams at friend about the boy at the party you hooked up with and are dreading to see* "I'm so sorry you had to hear that"

7. "What's your worst Uber experience?"

8. "Has anyone ever thrown up in this car before?"

9. "Do you actually like driving all day and all night?"

10. "Wait, I actually don't think you are our Uber..."

11. "How did you even become an Uber driver in the first place?"

12. "Can I have AUX..."

13. *Driver doesn't play any music at all* "Well, isn't this awkward"

14. *Explains entire life story in a span of 5 minutes even though it was not necessary in the slightest bit* "So yeah, because of that I could never, ever trust her again"

15. "Does your family know this is what you do for a living"

16. *Drunkenly screaming at the driver* "You are the BEST UBER I EVER HAD"

17. "Is there a way you could maybe be my personal driver all the time?"

18. "Are you in a relationship?"

19. *Silently (not silent at all, actually) whispers to your friend* "I hope he isn't in a relationship"

20. "I'm honestly going to give you a 5 star rating, you were great sir - keep doing you"

21. "Oh my god you are going the complete opposite way of where we need to be"

22."OMG I LOVE this song!" *starts aggressively dancing in the back seat*

23. "I don't think this is the right location, would you mind taking us here instead"

24. "Wow it smells really nice in here" 

25. *Everyone in unison* "Thank you!"

To The Teacher Who Was So Much More

Thank you for everything

I think it's fair to say that most people remember at least one teacher who had a lasting impact on them. I have been incredibly lucky to have several teachers who I will never forget, but one individual takes the cake. So here's to you: thank you for all you have done.

Thank you for teaching me lessons not just in the textbook.

Although you taught a great lecture, class was never just limited to the contents of the course. Debates and somewhat heated conversations would arise between classmates over politics and course material, and you always encouraged open discussion. You embraced the idea of always having an opinion, and always making it be heard, because why waste your voice? You taught me to fight for things I believed in, and to hold my ground in an argument. You taught me to always think of others before doing and speaking. You showed me the power of kindness. Thank you for all the important lessons that may not have been included in the curriculum.

Thank you for believing in me.

Especially in my senior year, you believed in me when other teachers didn't. You showed me just what I could accomplish with a positive and strong attitude. Your unwavering support kept me going, especially when I melted into a puddle of tears weekly in your office. You listened to my stupid complaints, understood my overwhelming stress-induced breakdowns, and told me it was going to be okay. Thank you for always being there for me.

Thank you for inspiring me.

You are the epitome of a role model. Not only are you intelligent and respected, but you have a heart of gold and emit beautiful light where ever you go. You showed me that service to others should not be looked at as a chore, but something to enjoy and find yourself in. And I have found myself in giving back to people, thanks to your spark. Thank you for showing me, and so many students, just how incredible one person can be.

Thank you for changing my life.

Without you, I truly would not be where I am today. As cliche as it sounds, you had such a remarkable impact on me and my outlook on life. Just about a year has passed since my graduation, and I'm grateful to still keep in touch. I hope you understand the impact you have made on me, and on so many other students. You are amazing, and I thank you for all you have done.

Technology is the course of the future, why not use it to get on top of your new year? Make 2019 the year you stop sleeping on these great productivity apps and get grinding! Best part, all the apps I've included here are free.

Google Calendar.

Look at that beauty.

I LOVE Google Calendar! Not only is it a great tool to map out your week, it comes with cool features. You can color code tasks and events, get text reminders and so much more. You can even sync your calendar with other people's (this is very helpful for roommates or study buddies).

Google Doc File Folders

Crying.

Sick of that long list of documents in your Google Docs? You can make file folders to organize all of your docs!

Momentum Chrome Extension

This is by far my favorite productivity app. It's a Chrome extension that acts as a home page whenever you open a new window or tab. It comes complete with the weather, a motivational quote and a to-do list! The best feature is their "main focus for the day". It keeps you grounded for sure- especially when it pops up with every tab and forces you to think about all you need to accomplish.

Wunderlist

This is a to-do list on steroids- definitely worth checking out!

Todist

A to-do list app for your phone! I love this just to organize what my top priorities are.
