The Six Types Of Shoppers

As I spent my winter break working in retail, I came to realize that there are certain types of shoppers in the world. I think other sales associates will agree....

1. The "I don't need any help-ers"

It is always the worst when your boss really wants you to interact with the customers but no one seems to want your help. So you just stand their awkwardly hoping for someone to walk in that would be lost with out you.

2. The "On a Mission-ers"

These people come into the store looking for one thing and one thing only and will not stop until they find it. These people are usually in a huge rush and are running around the store knocking clothes off the hangers. And if your store doesn't have the item they want, you usually end up feeling their wrath.

3. The "Can You Look In the Back-ers"

No matter how many times you tell them that all of the clothes are pushed out from storage, they ask you to please just check the back for them. And they get all upset again when you come back empty handed, which you told them was going to happen anyway.

4. The "Lookers"

These people come into the store but never actually buy anything at all. They really just spend hours touching the shirt materials and messing up the pile of clothes you just folded.

5. The "Deal Finders"

These people come in with every coupon possible and, the minute they come into the store, ask what deals are happening today. But they are always very happy when you tell them about an awesome sale.

6. The "Indecisive ones"

These people literally cannot decide what they want to buy. They pick things up and put stuff down and then pick more things up. They always ask your opinion on what to buy but still have to think about it; most likely, their purchase is going to end in a return.

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.
