The 10 WORST People At Concerts

It's no secret that I've been to a couple concerts over the years... or 108 to be exact. At every single one, regardless of the artist, venue, or city, you will find every single one of these people... and probably hate them. And if you don't, you probably are one of them even if you don't want to admit it.

1. The Conga Line


Nothing is worse than an entire parade of people squeezing to the front five minutes before the show starts because "their friend is up there". There is no room for any more people, but they do not care. They all hold hands and push and shove people out of their way to get their party of 12 to the barricade.

2. The Jolly Green Giant


If you are above six foot, please do not be aggressive. The five foot girl behind you loves this band and does not care about what the back of your shoulders look like. Stand wherever you like but be polite about the people behind you. And if you are like 6'6, please stay towards the sides or back... it's rude.

3. The Bathroom Buds


If you are in the front, the middle of a set is probably the worst possible time to decide to go to the bathroom... even worse, to bring every single one of your friends with you.

4. The Concert Couple


I understand you love your significant other but please do not spend an entire five hours grinding to indie alternative music... it's concerning.

5. The Groupie


How can you tell if someone has seen this band multiple times? Don't worry, they'll tell you. They have a tour tee and checkered vans most likely and will tell you alllllllll about the time the lead singer grabbed their hand while crowd surfing.

6. The Aggressor


It is a given that personal space is irrelevant. However, some people take this a little too far... this is the guy that refuses to shift even a little when you get too close on accident. The guy whose hair is always in your mouth, the girl always standing on your feet, and the one whose arm is touching you the entire time. That's about as passive as it gets folks.

7. The Drunk


At $10 a beer, how are you blackout? No one needs to hear their favorite lyrics slurred and screamed in their ear or wants a stranger falling all over them.

8. The Bored


The people who forgot they spent money to be here. This one goes out to the guy who I saw pull out his phone and watch The Office during the opening act because he didn't care enough to listen. This is the teenager air dropping memes to strangers. This is the girl whose phone battery is somehow already almost dead. Calm down.

9. The Children... and Their Parents


I do not care that this is your 12 year old's favorite band Karen, if they keep stepping on my toes and screaming at the top of their lungs after every single song, I'm going to lose it.

10. The Videographer


Did you know you don't actually have to buy tickets to shows when you can watch the entire thing on someone's snapchat story. Do you think they even know what it looked like without the filter?.... even though they were there...

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.
