12 Thoughts For Each Question Of Playing HQ

Nope. NOPE. I've lost again. I'm never playing again. But, like how long until the next one?

12 Thoughts For Each Question Of Playing HQ

If you don't know what HQ is, then you probably don't get out very much. The new phone app sweeping nations across the world is just as addictive as you'd think. People of all ages tune in at 3 pm and/or 9 pm EST to answer an increasingly difficult set of random trivia questions. If you get through all 12 questions, you and whoever is left get PayPal'd the pot. The largest pot I have seen with my own eyes was $300,000. It's fun, addictive, and actually driving many of my friends and me insane.

1. Am I being brainwashed?

The HQ theme song, and the way the host (Scott) rambles, sometimes it feels like I COULD be being brainwashed... Or mayyyybe I've watched too much Black Mirror. Either way.

2. Do people actually win this?

Trust me, I googled this. People actually do win, but I'm never one of them.

3. I know this is right... I think.

All the answer options are so similar that you begin to question yourself. I'll SWEAR I KNOW IT, and then I'll start thinking it over. Then the 10 seconds go by and I clicked the wrong answer. Story of my life.


Some of the questions are just ridiculous. NOBODY KNOWS THAT. But then I just get it wrong and everyone else gets it right.

5. Why do I do this to myself?

I never win. I don't know the answers. Why do I do this night after night?

6. There's NO way that was 10 seconds!

Thinking... Thinking... 2... 1... *Click* And the answer was... NOT THE ONE YOU PICKED!

7. Scott is hot... in a weird way.

Beard and think eyebrows? I'm down. But the Twitterverse calls him "Quiz Daddy," so obvi he's only an "under certain terms" hot guy.

8. Why are these morons typing in the comments when we only have 10 SECONDS!?

9. Use my HQ share code... please... I'm begging!!!!


10. There are 48 people left playing, so why are there 548,000 losers people still watching?

Can I really be talking, since I'm still watching too? Maybe watching the winners play will help me be a winner. Fake it 'till ya make it.

11. How do these people make money?

They most likely don't make buckets of money, but I googled it too. They make money off glitches. Fuck you, Scott.

12. I'm not playing anymore.

Nope. NOPE. I've lost again. I'm never playing again. But, like how long until the next one?

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.
