13 Great Things That Happen When Your Parents Love Your Boyfriend

Bringing a boy home to mom and dad can be scary. Are they going to like him? Is he going to like them? There is a lot of pressure on this very important first impression, but if they are able to wow them, a wonderful relationship between your parents and your boyfriend can start for life.

1. They get excited when they know he's coming over

Saying he's coming over is never met with, "again?" They don't really care how much he is around because they genuinely enjoy his company.

2. A conversation can be had without you there, and it's not awkward

You can run to the bathroom or go do some work and leave your parents and him together and they'll be able to hold a really great conversation. You don't have to worry about it being awkward if you're gone.

3. They remember details about him

My mom remembers my boyfriend's favorite candy better than I do. When you care about someone, you remember the little things, so it is clear they care about him a lot.

4. They ask about him

If they haven't seen him in a while, they'll always ask how he's doing. They'll ask how work is, or what is take is on something happening in the sports world. They genuinely want to know how he is doing.

5. They pretty much assume you'll be together forever

They reference when you're getting married, your future kids and your life down the line without hesitation.

6. He's invited to family events

There's nothing better than your two favorite worlds colliding. Whether it is a dinner with just the intermediate family or a cookout with the whole gang, the feeling of him not only being invited but it being second nature to invite him is amazing.

7. And your extended family already loves him because of how your parents talk about him

Even before your aunts and uncles and cousins get to meet him, they have a really good idea of how great of a guy he is because he's never talked negatively about.

8. They talk positively about him when he's not around

You always know they aren't just being nice to his face because of how they talk about him when it's just you. They never have a bad thing to say about him.

9. They probably text him out of the blue on occasion

Whether they have a question or just want to make sure you're doing okay, it is really sweet to see the friendship they've formed outside of you.

10. And get him really good Christmas and birthday gifts

They don't just text him Happy Birthday or Merry Christmas, they brainstorm and buy him things they know he will truly like.

11. They always welcome him into their home

When they know he's coming, they'll set up a bed for him and order a pizza. They are always so welcoming.

12. They always have a hug or a handshake when he leaves

Your boyfriend never just says goodbye to your parents. He'll shake your dad's hand and hug your mom. They tell him to drive safe and let them know when he gets home safely, just like they do for you.

13. And finally, they already see him as part of the family

He may be your boyfriend, but your parents consider him part of the family. From buying him gifts to inviting him to all your family affairs, he has already fit himself into your family. And that's the greatest feeling of them all.

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.
