Why I Love Astrology

Oh, you're that sign? Interesting

Why I Love Astrology

There are two kinds of people: the people who like astrology and those who think astrology is bull. If you’re one of those people who thinks astrology is nonsense, fine. I’m sorry you are boring and have no imagination, and I’m sorry you have no fun. If anyone knows me, they know that I am a big fan of astrology. I verbally express it and wear my taurus symbol as much as i can. I find this topic so fascinating because its interesting to see how the exact time you were born affects your personality or life. Many people find it stupid, but I find it incredible how everything is written in the stars.

I was born on the 16th of May, and am identified as a classic Taurus. They're stubborn, very sensual, and the most loyal people you will ever meet. Tauren are also careful, patient, and materialistic. On a darker note, Taurus' can be stubborn, insensitive, self-indulgent, and did I mention stubborn? (check, check, and double check). We don't get along with Libras -- which I think explains why I legitimately have no Libra friends. Taurus is an earth sign, and I tend to get along with more of the earthy signs like Virgo and Capricorn.

When my friends and I analyze people based on their zodiac signs, people shrug their shoulders and judge our nerdy conversations. But for me, astrology helps me identify and appreciate the unique qualities of the people I know. It helps me make sense of people in a way. I don’t find it coincidental that in my life I am surrounded by Pisces, or that I tend to be attracted to Aries -- they are definitely hot heads, and being a stubborn Taurus, I love the challenge they give me. Most Leos are sexual as hell, and Capricorns are the most hardworking people know, and I just can’t get a handle at all on Aquarians or Libras. Regardless, I always find it helpful to know someone’s sign.

I’ve never been the most rational of people and, honestly, I wouldn’t want to be. It’s much more interesting for me see the world as a place with the ambiguity of magic and mystery. People like astrology because it’s fun, it’s an explanation for every day life, and it makes people feel in touch with forces larger than they could even imagine. You know, like stars, planets and cosmos!

Ever since I was little, I loved space, and learning the planets. Remember the acronym? My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nachos (or Nine Pizzas, because I'm still in denial about Pluto). But, anyway, I loved space and not fully knowing what's out there. And astrology connects the two "worlds" together; it gives me a realization to why essentially people are different.

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.
