Why You Should Never Play World of Warcraft

One innocent play will spiral into a full blown addiction.

Why You Should Never Play World of Warcraft

In 2011, I signed up for World of Warcraft. Shortly after, I was addicted and could not get enough. Be warned before you take the plunge into WoW.

1. Three words. Ultimate. Nerd. Status.

Eat. Sleep. Game. Repeat.

2. You will always be broke.

With the base game price (plus or minus 50 dollars) AND a monthly subscription of approximately 15 dollars (not to mention expensive expansion packs), it does not come cheap.

3. You will instantly become *really* cool.

Talking about your raid group, PvP achievements, and how you cannot seem to get past that one quest in Dragonblight is NOT considered interesting to non-players.

4. Unless you are a girl...

Then you will actually be cool.

5. Sleep? What sleep?

9:00 p.m.: "I'll stop playing at 10, I need to get some sleep tonight."

10:05 p.m.: "Nah, let me finish this raid first."

12:17 a.m.: "Just one more."

2:00 a.m.: "I can't stop now, I just queued for this raid."

5:26 a.m.: "Well, time to go to work."

6. You might lose your job (especially if your gaming setup looks like this).

It is really hard to maintain a nine to five job when it conflicts with your strict 12 hours a day gaming schedule.

7. No friends, no problem.

Why have real life friends when they are all online?

8. Leeroy Jenkins is easily the funniest video you will ever have seen.

Now excuse me while I go renew my subscription.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.

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.
