Don't @ me.

Yes, Leggings ARE Pants And I Will Die On That Hill (And Wear Leggings In My Casket)

With the cold weather finally here, it's time to break out the leggings. And that means it's time for everyone's favorite debate when it comes to women's clothing: Are leggings actually pants?

Many would say no. But I'm here to shrug them off and keep wearing leggings as pants like it's my full-time job.

In fact, I often wear leggings to my full-time job. There is no better way to disguise yourself as a professional than by hiding your cozy clothes with boots and a long sweater. Am I right, or what?

In all seriousness, it's ridiculous that we think women should only wear jeans or slacks. It's 2018, and being comfortable should be a constitutional right. Somebody draft that amendment, please.

I mean, if you enjoy the feeling of your waistband murdering your stomach every time you sit down, wear jeans. No one is stopping you. But I'm going to be able to stretch and sit comfortably in any position I please.

And before you go into the whole leggings-are-see-through argument, get with the times. Most clothing companies make quality leggings these days — because they know women are using their products as alternatives to their formerly uncomfortable prisons... I mean, pants.

Also, stop staring at our butts. Believe it or not, that isn't why we get dressed in the morning.

So, the moral is — apart from that you should quit looking at people's butts — that you should worry less about what I'm wearing and more about what's happening in your own life.

And by the way, you should be grateful I'm wearing leggings. If it were up to me, I'd run around in men's boxers or sweatpants all day long. I'd say sorry, but you know that I'd be lying.

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.
