Thoughts Everyone Has At The Gym

We all have to go and we all have these thoughts.

Thoughts Everyone Has At The Gym

Going to the gym–it’s something we all should do whether we like it or not. The gym has been added to our list of chores just like cleaning or mowing the lawn. Some days at the gym are good, while others are just plain awful. We’ve all had these thoughts at the gym whether we want to admit it or not.

1. How does this even work?

Some machines look more like torture devices rather than exercise equipment. This usually leads to many awkward attempts at using them while other gym-goers watch in horror.

2. This person spends way too much time here.

We’ve all encountered this gym-goer. These people have crossed over from toned to insane. They are often spotted hogging the weights and downing a protein shake.

3. At least my outfit is on point.

There’s nothing better than the feeling when you entire outfit is flawless. Sure, you probably spent more time picking it out than you will spend at the gym, but, hey, at least you look good.

4. Why is everyone here now?

You thought you planned it out perfectly for the gym to be vacant, but alas, everyone else apparently had the same idea, and you’re stuck in a hot, packed gym yet again.

5. Finally no one is here!

An empty gym is like winning the lottery: It almost never happens, but when it does, it’s amazing. You don’t have to wait for anything and there’s no one to watch you mess up.

6. Why does no one wipe off their machine?

We’ve all had it happen to us. You’re already using the machine before you realize it’s drenched in someone else’s sweat.

7. Is that what I really look like?

Most gyms contain at least one wall of unflattering mirrors. For some it might be motivation, for others it’s just a reminder of why you’re at the gym in the first place.

8. Will they ever get off this machine?

There's always that one person who hogs whatever machine they're on at the moment. They're often found spending an hour on the treadmill or doing endless reps with the weights.

9. Wow! I’m actually seeing results!

Whether these results are real or imaginary they’ll probably keep you coming back to the gym.

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.
