11 Times The Grinch Was The Ultimate Introvert

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is the movies, because honestly, some of the greatest works of cinematic history are Christmas movies. "Elf" makes me laugh hysterically (if you can get through this post without a giggle you have no soul). "It’s A Wonderful Life" makes me cry (and also ring every bell I can find because all of you sweet little angels deserve wings, @Clarence). "Home Alone" (only one and two, the others ruined it) makes me wonder why I was such an incompetent 8-year-old. "The Holiday" makes me want to pick up and move to a small cottage in the English country side (Jude Law, where are you?). The fact that ABC Family has an entire 25 days devoted to Christmas movies is a true celebration in itself (bless you for playing a "Harry Potter" film every three hours).

While all of these movies are amazing and joyful and triumphant (lolz), I am not sure any of them can touch "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," because it is a masterpiece. Why is it a masterpiece? Among probably hundreds of reasons, a large one is that the Grinch is the ultimate introvert, and he gets me.

Case and point. You make a sick lair (looking at you, couches), and post up. Why would you ever need to leave?

The Grinch just gets it. Even though it's hard, sometimes you have to face the world and remind it that you exist.

If you're going to make the big step and go out into society, you better look good. People might not see you for a long time after this. Plus, like, pictures.

OMG, I have nothing to wear -- great excuse to not go.

Your fridge and pantry is your favorite part of your house (well maybe besides your bed). Never leave me!

Being home alone is a vicious cycle of YOLO snack time every hour on the hour and immediate self-loathing after when your sweatpants get tight. Oops.

You make yourself a priority because me-time is the best time. (Also, this whole rant is incredible.)

Your pet is probably your best friend because you can talk to them about everything, they love you unconditionally, and they are probably right there lying in bed with you.

You get anxiety when people invite you to do things because yay humans but also ugh humans.

People are the worst. I mean not all of you but kind of.

People might try to make you social, but seriously, Imma do me and be really happy about it, so bai.

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.

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.
