What is single again?

11 Reasons It's Actually BETTER To Be A 'We' Instead Of 'Just Me' In Your 20s

We all have been single at one time in our life, whether it was when we were younger or when we were older. We all have experienced the feeling of being alone and not having that special person to lean on when the going gets tough. But we have experienced the feeling of freedom when you are single and not have to worry about anyone but your self.

And most of us, who are lucky enough, who loves to be committed, have had experiences of being a "we" with someone.

People have argued if being in a relationship is better than being single and vice versa. Of course, they both have their pros and cons. But I personally believe that being a "we" is SO much better than "just me."

1. You have each other

Sure you have your friends, but your partner is literally there no matter what, any time of the day. They are always going to have their shoulder for you to lean on.

2. You share a bond

A bond that is unique and one of a kind. No one else can replace that bond that you two share.

3. Being a "we" in your 20s, you have someone to grow up with

Going to school, to finding your first career job, and to finding a place to live on your own — having that special someone to do that with, you are learning together and growing up together to become actual adults.

4. You face obstacles together

Life is going to throw some curve balls that is for sure, but you have each other. Nothing can stop you both.

5. You're each other support system

Enough said.

6. What is single again?

Being a "we" for so long, you forget what it is like to be single, and frankly, you love being a "we."

7. Being a "we" you're in love with your best friend

Simple as that. There is no greater love than being in love with your best friend.

8. You learn new ways of how a relationship works

Being in a relationship is never boring. There are always new ways to make a relationship work and to make it more interesting and fun.

9. With your person, you figure out who you both really are in your 20s

Not only do you figure who you really are, you figure it out together and who you are as a couple.

10. Being a "we" in your 20s, you are not pressured like you would be in your 30s

11. All of your friends are getting married in their 20s

So who are you going to take to their wedding? Of course, duh, your partner that makes your "we," we.

Being a "we" is so much better than being "just me." You have someone to do life with you starting out young which will progress into growing up together and facing every obstacle that life gives to you both. Being a "we" in your 20s gives you this amazing bond that with the person you are in love with.

Take my word for it.

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.
