Being single definitely has its perks.

14 Reasons Why You Should Be Single On Valentine's Day

February 14, the day that every girl (and guy) who is not in a relationship dreads. Do not sit at home alone this Valentine's day and wallow in your loneliness. Instead, go out, have fun, and live your life! It is ten times better to be single because you have the freedom to do and wear what you want (aka sweatpants). So cheers to being single, and listen to the wise words of my Dad, "Boys are like boogers, flick 'em." Flick the boys (or girls) to the side and celebrate yourself this Valentine's Day.

1. You save money

You don't have to buy anyone a gift except yourself, how great is that?!

2. You can celebrate Galentine's Day instead

What is Galentine's day?

3. It is just a normal day

You can pretend like it doesn't even exist, that is what I do.

4. You can celebrate February 15, Valentine's candy on sale

5. You can Netflix without the Chill

We all know that you actually want to WATCH that chick flick, so now you can.

6. You don't get another stuffed animal

You know that it would end up in the bottom of your closet in about a week anyways.

7. You don't have to share your candy

We all know that you don't want to share. There are two types of people in the world: those who binge eat all their candy in one day, and those who savor it for the rest of the month. Which are you?


This one is on here twice because it is just that important.

9. You can eat as much as you want to without judgement

You can order dessert too!

10. You can eat cookie dough instead of making cookies

Go ahead, you know you want to.

11. Way less pressure

You don't have to stress out about what your date is thinking, all you have to worry about is what ice cream flavor you are going to eat next.

12. "Treat Yo Self"

It is all about you!

13. You can hangout with your other single friends

Trust me, you are not the only single one in the world. So, get together with your other single friends and bond over your singleness.

14. You can wear black if you want to

It matches everything, and accurately describes how we feel on Valentine's 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.

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.
