7 things I'd Rather Do Than Wait At The DMV

Zootopia couldn't have depicted waiting at the DMV any better

This month my license expired and I googled why the DMV is notoriously so slow. Even going to the DMV in a smaller town like Christiansburg rather than Virginia Beach had me there for at least an hour. I found out that the DMV is allowed to be as slow as they are because they have no competition creating a non-competitive market for their services. They know that nobody can get the exact government required services that they provide anywhere else allowing them to take as much time as they want for their services.

1. Take 7:45 a.m. finals for an entire week


A 7:45 a.m. final is less tiring than having to sit in that miserable place.

2. Have to take another math class at the math empo


I'd rather have to put up my orange cups in order to still be confused even after the math empo workers tried to help.

3. Wait in traffic


At least in traffic I can sometimes estimate how long it will take.

4. Have to watch a marathon of golf or hockey


The two most boring sports in the entire world.

5. Watch a bunch of horror movies


At least I'll be able to get good snacks like popcorn or candy

6. Have to deal with spring allergies all year


As much as I hate having spring allergies to pollen, I'd rather have to sneeze and blow my nose constantly than see everyone moving in slow motion at the DMV.

7. Doing any chore at all


Laundry, dishes, vacuuming, and taking out the trash is much less draining than waiting at the dreaded DMV.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
