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.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

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.
