Think Before You Tweet

A brief list of reasons why you should check your facts before you post anything

Think Before You Tweet

With the ability to share anything with the entire world within seconds, you’d think that people would consider what they are about to say. However, not many people do. It appears as if numerous people don’t think before they tweet, or they have no understanding of the subject they are discussing. This may mean we either need to revamp education or make it more difficult for people to make Twitter accounts. Either way, here are several reasons to think before you tweet!

I'd Rather Kill Myself Than Commit Suicide is a common phrase made on several social media sites including Twitter and Whisper. It shows that "I'd rather kill myself than..." has become a common phrase in our language, and people don't understand the concept of suicide and that by uttering that phrase it shows how unintelligent they are.

Earth is How Old? There is an unbelievable amount of people who think that our current year is how old Earth is. Apparently, they forget about the millions of years of history we have Before Christ and how we started counting to where we are now with tweets ranging from 2014-2016, and unfortunately, it doesn't stop there. There are people who think America is 2014, which baffles me. Did they sleep through history class or is this just intentionally stupidity?

A personal favorite of mine are ones regarding President Obama, or as someone online called him Barraco Barner. But, hey, at least they remembered his last name! This just goes to show how people don't pay attention to current events.

There are plenty more unique ones but these were the most reoccurring ones and that just go to prove how much we need of an education or a filter to restrict certain levels of stupidity from reaching the public eye.

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.
