Birkenstocks and Taffeta are the stuff of nightmares.

Birkenstocks Are The World's Ugliest And Most Useless 'Shoes'

Nothing makes a person feel better or more confident than a great pair of shoes. Whether that shoe is a pair of your finest “fuck me” pumps, or a newly polished Oxford, shoes have the capability of changing how people present themselves. They can exude sex appeal, power, intimidation; even the sound can emanate a tone that could silence an entire room, bring all eyes to your feet of all places. Shoes not only shield your feet from the shit, gum, and shards of debris that litter the street, but can add pizzazz to your, probably, already boring outfit.

Everything that shoes are supposed to do, Birkenstocks fail to accomplish.

Sure, they are like thick flip flops, in the fact that they offer a barrier between your precious feet and the slums of your white suburb or university, which is always nice.

Nevertheless, these shoes have to be the most heinous things I have ever seen in my life. It’s like Jesus decided to launch his own clothing line for the righteous and radically unfashionable. The thick cork-like sole and brown band is unflattering, even on the most beautiful of feet. Don’t even get me started when I see people wear socks with them... You can’t find an outfit that would be enhanced with a pair of the finest Birkenstocks, unless you were a homeless person. However, you can pay to look homeless for the inexpensive price of $100.

I don’t know why or how these shoes are the new “trendy” statement on college campuses. The Jesus Sandal crazy has rocked every sorority girl’s and hipster white guy’s world, as if they invented the fucking Converse. I think the classic Nike shorts, Formals shirt, or black leggings really are the only “appropriate” outfit to accessorize these shoes with. I am all for being comfortable, and Birkenstocks are some comfy fucking shoes, but if you are trying to become a grown adult, you need to dress like one. You are in college, getting jobs, paying rent, working towards your career; start dressing like it.

I love fashion, but I am ready for this trend to get packed away for another 10 years (hopefully more).

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.

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.
