The Gym Is For Working Out And People Watching–Here Are The 8 Types Of People You See At The Gym

When I go to the gym, I'm forever looking around the gym. I'm not sure why I guess I just get bored running on the treadmill or using the elliptical during cardio days. I've noticed a few certain types of people that workout at my gym. Most people go, workout, and leave but some people have a real gym stereotype.

1. The Girl With Super Cute Workout Clothes

Usually there's a few girls that have super cute leggings or tops that just make me wonder where they find their cute clothes when I'm wearing black Nike shorts and a really old tournament t-shirt from freshman year of highschool. But they probably spend a fortune on their perfectly coordinated outfits and I'm not prepared to do that.

2. The Girl That Lifts With All The Buff Dudes

This girl is friends with almost everyone at the gym. Either she comes in with these guys or they see each other and just start lifting together. And she's no joke- she takes lifting seriously.

3. The Runner

This is the guy that has been running on the treadmill ever since you got to the gym an hour ago and he's still running.

4. The Guy Who Goes Around Talking To All The Cute Girls

Now this guy is always fairly attractive and built but you can just tell he's a tool by the cocky way he walks and goes up to at least 2 or 3 girls in the hour or hour and a half that you're there and each time you go to the gym they're usually different girls he's approaching… gotta stay away from that one, ladies.

5. The Major Lifter Guy

This guy always wears a cutoff t-shirt and walks to the water fountain in between every single set on the bench press.

6. Basic Gym Goer

Looks like the average person between seventeen and thirty years old that does their thing and leaves without bothering anyone.

7. The Person You See Everywhere

I feel like everyone has that one person that they see what feels like everywhere and then you just happen to see them at the gym.

8. The Cute Guy

This is the guy that you have a really big crush on but it's just a gym crush and there's no way you'd ever actually talk to him.

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.
