15 Things College Girls Need Much More Than A Significant Other

Yes, the guacamole is necessary.

15 Things College Girls Need Much More Than A Significant Other

Let's face it; if you have a significant other, you do not always know what is going through their head or how they really feel.

Honestly, you could be blindsided in the worst way, and left in a public place looking like an idiot. (True story!)

So there are definitely things you can invest in before you invest in a relationship with others, and these are definitely more dependable.

1. Your self

Again, no one is going to have you, like you do. You can depend on yourself always because, in the end, you are the only one guaranteed to be there for YOU. Might as well hold yourself accountable and be able to be alone.

2. 10-foot phone chargers

These bad boys break pretty often, but not as often as those boys could break your heart.

3. Cookout Milkshakes

MY one true love.

4. Our dogs

I lied, my dog will always be there at the end of the day. She gives me kisses and cuddles without throwing a fit about it; even when I don't want them.

5. Netflix

So what if it takes 10 minutes to buffer because Kennesaw State's wifi sucks majorly? At least it won't wait until right before you leave to cancel plans or tell you they aren't even home!

6. A car

My brand new baby I bought all on my own, with no help from a significant other, will not give up on me when it gets "tired" or decide it's going to crap out on me a few years in.

7. "Game of Thrones"

Sure, we might kill off every character that you love and invest in, but we don't end it all. Ever.

8. "The Walking Dead"

See #7.

9. The Gym

Sure, you hurt a little afterward, but it is all for the better; you're getting stronger with every visit. Most are open 24/7 and accept all kinds of people now, instead of shutting you out when you are a little different than 'their kind' of people. ie: college cliques.

10. "Grey's Anatomy"

It might make you cry, but you know that it holds your heart for always.

11. Starbucks on Campus

There is always a line, ALWAYS; but you still won't wait as long as you will for your S.O. to meet the family.

12. Dogs on Campus

They'll wag and lick you and make you smile more than he could on a date he tried to plan.

13. Guacamole from Chipotlé

That extra charge on your total isn't close to the amount of pain you could endure when the end comes to this relationship.

14. The chance to register for classes we need.

Oh, you need that class for your major? Try again next semester. Oh, you wanted to go see that play at The Fox Theatre? Try again with someone else because they don't enjoy plays.

15. Family.

I figured I would save the best, and least sarcastic for last. Your family will always have your back, no matter what issues there may be between you. Let me just tell you that I have never seen my parents so mad as when I come home crying over someone; anyone, for that matter.

So let's focus on these before we try a significant other out; there is a no return policy on relationships, anyway.

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.
