11 Reasons Derek Is The Greatest Bachelorette Contestant Ever

Basically, this season of "The Bachelorette" has all the elements it needs to be one of the greats. We all fell in love with Ben last season and simultaneously wanted to punch him in the face when he sent one of the most vibrant and relatable women to grace this reality staple home. So when we tuned in for the first episode I expected nothing short of, in the words of Chris Harrison himself, "the most dramatic season yet." And boy has JoJo delivered. With all the drama going on there's been one beautiful light shining through, and his name is Derek. When he first emerged from that limo I genuinely thought John Krasinski was pulling one of his greatest and most far fetched pranks on Jimmy Kimmel yet. When I realized that wasn't the case I immediately knew this would be my favorite season of all time, because let's face it, we all needed Jim Halpert in our lives again. If this synopsis wasn't enough to sell you on Derek's merits, here are 11 reasons why he's pretty much the greatest.

1. He walked out of the limo and you were like, "Woah, Jim. Where's Pam?"

2. You got over the initial shock and realized this season was going to be good. Real good.

3. They met and it was magic.

4. Then you realized he's also Ed Sheeran.

5. He has a pretty great response to who he admires most.

"I think in history, this would fall to Ben Franklin. He was able to view the world with childlike wonder to feed his creative/inventive side and balance that with a work ethic that produced massive shifts for the greater good."

6. He was the perfect first date.

7. He stood up to Chad.

And looked pretty cute in that tank.

8. He's from the Midwest.


9. He embraces his nerd status.

Harry Potter game strong.

10. He's hilarious like his alter-ego.

If he deadpans to the camera this season I will faint.

11. That smile though.

BRB. Crying.

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.
