What Those With A Resting B*tch Face Are Actually Thinking

No, we don't hate you.

What Those With A Resting B*tch Face Are Actually Thinking

We've all crossed paths with those people who always seem to look ticked off. It might be the girl that you see on the way to class, or the guy sitting at the table next to you in a restaurant, or your best friend, or maybe it's you. The term for this involuntary emotionless or even mean-looking face characterized by dead eyes and an angry looking pout has been coined as a "resting b*tchface." On multiple occasions, I've been told that I have this "condition." I've been told that I look intimidating, ticked off, angry, or sad. I've heard, "Man, you look like you've been run over by a truck," or "I'll leave you alone; it looks like you've had a bad day," or "Cheer up." My personal favorite is "Jeez, it looks like you just committed murder." After meeting someone for the first time, I usually hear things like "Oh my gosh, you're so nice; I used to think you hated me," just because of the way my normal facial expression is perceived.

The truth is, it's just a neutral expression. I'm almost always very happy, friendly, and willing to talk to anyone. So, on behalf of myself and my fellow friends with the face that seems to scream "Back off," here is a list of things that we are most likely thinking when you see this face even if our exterior seems to indicate otherwise:

1. "Wow, I love her boots. I wonder where she got them from."

2. "I could really go for some tacos right now."

3. "Did I lock my door?"

4. *lyrics to some catchy song*

5. "I have a wedgie."

6. "Did I forget to put on deodorant again?"

7. *random joke someone told me yesterday that I finally understand*

8. "I can't wait to take a nap later."

9. "I'm freezing."

10. "I'm so excited for this weekend."

11. "That burger I just had was delicious."

12. "Oh look, two new texts. I'm really popular."

13. "Aw, my mom misses me so much she texted me twice."

14. "I'm going to be super productive today."

15. "Haha, no I'm not."

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.

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.
