Here I Am, 18 Years Later, And Yes, I Am Still Single

No, it doesn't bother me at all.


Single, this word has described me for the past eighteen years.

Yes, I have never been in a serious relationship that lasted more then a month.

No, it doesn't bother me at all.

Throughout high school, I wasn't boy crazy like the rest of my girlfriends. I would talk to guys here and there, I just never truly found the immature smelly boys we had to see every day very attractive or intriguing at all.

While majority of my friends had boyfriends, flings, whatever you want to call them, I was always just there. I continued to work on myself and make an abundance of friends.

In high school, and now college, I have learned and been able to get a handle on self-love. I have learned how to be independent and just be on my own.

I have a handful of amazing friends.

No, I have never had a serious significant other, and I am totally okay with that.

While I have now had my fair share of "talking" to guys, and getting to know them, I have yet to find one that is a good match.

Another factor that plays into not ever being in a serious relationship, is that I refuse to settle.

I want to find a guy that shares the same ideals and has similar goals as I do. I want a guy that loves his momma and has a future for himself.

I have had the opportunity to date and be in relationships, but I just never completely am satisfied. Once again, I refuse to settle and YES, I am okay with that.

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.
