What She's Thinking When You Don't Text Back

Nowadays, our generation has thousands of texting rules. (I honestly can't keep up with them, but I know the basics.) You shouldn't double text, wait a while after your crush texts back and blah blah blah. Frankly, I think it is all ridiculous, and you should be able to text someone when you feel like it. At the same time, I also know you shouldn't go psycho mode and text eight times in a row if you haven't heard from the guy you're talking to in over an hour. I sadly know this because I have been that crazy girl. Slowly but surely, I am learning how to appear calm and cool over text while I simply freak out to my best friend. Guys are usually much worse digital communicators than girls. Here are a few things a girl is probably thinking when the guy they are "talking to" isn't texting back.

1. He's dead.

Yep. This is the worst conclusion I could jump to, so naturally I jump to it first. Will when someone confirm his death to me? Will it make the news? Is it OK to identify as his girlfriend if someone at the funeral asks me how I knew him?

2. I'm never going to talk to him again.

I haven't heard from him in a whole day. He's posting Snapchat stories but can't talk to me? That's it. I'm not playing nice anymore. He's just another jerk. *phone buzzes* Oh, it's him. Well, he does make me smile. I'll just wait a bit to give him a taste of his own medicine. *texts back in a minute*

3. He is probably playing hard to get.

Oh, I see. He wants a chase. He is playing hard to get with me. Although, he is still watching my Snapchat stories. I know what I'll do. I'll post a story looking really hot. And maybe with a tiny bit of cleavage.

4. He already has a girlfriend.

I knew it. He already has a girlfriend. She's probably just one of those girls who doesn't want their relationship advertised all over social media. Or maybe she just doesn't have a Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat or Facebook. Maybe she is super zen like that and doesn't like intertwining her life with the digital world.

5. He is probably just having sex with a bunch of other girls.

Maybe he is sleeping with so many girls that he can't handle the time management of sleeping with them and talking to me. But, does he still prefer me over them? I need to step up my sexy game. I just need to beat them out.

6. He is probably just having sex with a bunch of other girls ... all at once.

Wow, I didn't think he would be into the orgy type thing. Oh goodness. Does this mean I have to get involved with it now? Can I at least be the ring leader of the whole operation? Does he feel so guilty about it that he can't text me?

7. Maybe he decided he was gay.

Gay is OK. But I guess I would have preferred to have known. Did I do something so wrong he doesn't like women anymore? What did I do? *thinks back to every single action and word in the past month*

8. He found someone better than me.

Here I am. I have hit the depressed thinking stage. He found someone better than me. I just wasn't enough for him. I knew I shouldn't have eaten that piece of cake. Or maybe it was when I double texted him 23 days ago that sent him over the edge. He's probably laughing with and kissing some other girl right now.

9. He is too immature of a boy to tell me he doesn't like me anymore.

You know what? He did seem like a little boy. Now I am angry. Forget him. I can do way better. I don't need him. If he doesn't want to care, I won't care either. I have my friends, and that is all I need. I am going to go out tonight and talk to other guys.

10. He would probably want me to sit and cry now.

What am I talking about? I'm not strong. I'm just going to sit here and cry and think about his smile. I'm going to think about every laugh we spent together. I mean, it has been almost two days since he has texted. He obviously is disgusted by me. I just need a good cry.

And once we go through every stage, the guy will usually text back after two days like nothing has happened at all.

"Hey, beautiful! I'm sorry. I was busy. What's up?"

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.
