I'm The Worst At Being A 'Girly Girl', But I'm The Best At Being Myself

It's not all about whose liner is most 'on fleek'

I'm The Worst At Being A 'Girly Girl', But I'm The Best At Being Myself

On any given day, it takes me 20 minutes max to get ready for class. I roll out of bed, take a five-minute 'power shower', and throw on clean clothes. If I'm feeling fancy, I might swipe a little mascara over my eyelashes to make myself look more awake.

Seems pretty normal, right? Well, it's really no different when I get ready to go out. I mean, curling my hair is a HUGE deal to me! I don't even bother trying to put on a full face of makeup because I know that it'll melt right off by the end-of-night rendition of 'Mr. Brightside'. As for walking in heels? Forget about it.

I'll choose my Adidas Superstars over stilettos [almost] any day -- I'll admit that it's fun to occasionally dress up. (If I'm wearing a dress and heels, it's bound to be an interesting night). Nevertheless, I have absolutely zero expertise in these areas, which often results in a few texts or phone calls to friends who are better at dolling themselves up than I will ever be.

I'm clearly super low maintenance in comparison to a lot of other girls, which definitely has its pros and cons. I wish I knew what highlighter does for your face, and I'd love to learn how to paint my own fingernails for a change. In all honesty, I'd rather pay other people to do these things for me, instead of screwing up myself. At the end of the day, no matter what, I'll be chilling in sweats with my hair in a high ponytail. Doesn't that sound amazing?

As for other things, I've never cried during a movie except for Marley & Me (I mean, come on, guys). I'm always up for trying new things, but Nicholas Sparks films don't exactly entertain me. TV shows that lots of girls are into also do not appeal to me. I'll never understand the obsession with "The Bachelor" because as far as I know, it's a show about fake love. For real, what's all the hype about?

I wish I could relate to a lot of my friends, but we have a ton of different interests. And that's totally OK. I'd much rather watch a hockey fight than any movie with a cliche plot line, and you'll never find me putting in excessive amounts of effort to look good. However, I'm at that point in my life where I'd rather not change it up. I'm comfortable in my own skin, and that's all that matters.

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.

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.
