10 Realities Of Living With Your Significant Other
Ariana Dolce

Living with my boyfriend has been an incredible experience so far, but it is most definitely a life change. I've lived with my family and college roommates, but the dynamic of living with a significant other is it's own entity.

1. 24/7 Cuddle buddy

Well at least I think he's my cuddle buddy all day every day, even when he may be a little resistant.

2. Change the sheets twice as often

I don't know about you, but neither my boyfriend or I are necessarily dry sleepers per say ( We sweat, okay?). That being said, double the sweat, double then amount you have to change your sheets.

3. Double the laundry and dishes

On this trend of doubling, the dishes and the laundry are no stranger to the multiplying. (Load after load, they never seem to go down)

4. Toilet seat left up

He's a guy, he pees standing up (at least he lifts it and doesn't leave a mess). But for real, please save me from falling in every so often and just put the damn seat down.

5. Groceries evaporate

We buy them then poof they're gone! My boyfriend is 6'7" and eats more than any other person I have ever met. (But that doesn't mean I don't give him a run for his money)

6. Finding socks in obscure places

I mean, I find them on my desk, in the couch, under the table, just about anywhere in the apartment.

7. Snoring...every single night

It's really a miracle that I can sleep through anything.

8. Privacy becomes nonexistent

Enough said.

9. Towels...stolen or on the floor

You're getting out of the shower and you go to grab your own towel, it's not there. Oh that's right, it's on the floor in the bedroom.

10. Get to come home to my best friend every day

Regardless of the adjustments you make living with your S.O., you get to come home to your favorite person every day.

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.
