A Glimpse into my Tinder Experience

So we've all been there, thinking that we will meet Prince Charming on Tinder. At first he is charming, smart, and kind. Next minute, he goes off the radar … what gives? Here are some of my highlights.

  1. French Boy

Ah yes, we all wanted to date the foreign guy. Because, well he just seems different than all the other guys you've dated in the past. He eats wraps instead of cheeseburgers, uses the words "nevertheless" and "contrary to popular belief" and loves to read. So, the story begins with of course a Tinder exchange of messages. Our first date, we went for pizza. He begins to tell me how "American" pizza is and how they do not have pizza in France. We go back to his apartment where he tells me that he has this fancy French wine. I look at the bottle … it's from Trader Joe's not France … good try though.. Right? Next, he looks at me and says "should we do the make-out?" Our next dates were quite awkward… we went to the movies to see a horror film just for him to say over and over again "stupid Americans!" Needless to say, this relationship did not flourish.

  1. "I don't want anything serious"

This date tried to wow me. We messaged on Tinder back and forth for about a month. He would constantly tell me that he was "so busy" even though he worked a 9-5 entry level job. Like how was he supposedly staying late at the office every night? Finally, our first date arrived. He wanted to pick me up, but I insisted that I just meet him at the restaurant as that was a safety precaution … remember … Stranger Danger. So, to my surprise, what I thought would be a pizza joint came out to be a five star restaurant with valet parking and the whole nine yards. Dinner seemed rush, but I get it, restaurants on a weekend are crazy busy. We dated for about a month, but when I started to develop some true feelings for him, he pulled away. When I asked him what the problem was he gave the dreaded - "I don't want anything serious right now". He proceeded to tell me how heartbroken he was over a girl he dated 8 years ago … in high school. I was stumped … like really?

The reason for me writing this article is to show you that yes, crazy stuff happens on Tinder. Please act responsibly and know your worth!

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.
