20 Date Ideas For The Hopeless Romantic

In 2016, it is very hard to find a hopeless romantic. There are hundreds of Tinder dates, Netflix and Chillin' and hook-ups, but how often do you hear people talking about the romantic date they just went on? This is a guide for the true romantics out there, or for the single bachelors and bachelorettes who need to spice up their love lives.

1. Stargazing

There's just something fascinating about looking up at the stars and thinking about life.

2. A walk on the beach

The sound of the waves crashing along with the large open space makes a perfect romantic date.

3. Picnic in the park

Cheese, crackers, grapes and wine are the perfect recipe for a picnic.

4. Have a coffee at a local cafe

Skip the Starbucks and wander into a cute, local cafe.

5. Walk in the rain (with an umbrella of course)

Nothing beats the soothing sound of the rain hitting the pavement and the city lights blending together.

6. Go to a bakery and share a dessert

7. Watch the sunset

What's better than snuggling up and looking at the beautiful pink, blue and purple colors of the sky?

8. Make a fort with blankets and christmas lights

A cheap and easy way to spend an evening. Bring your laptop to watch movies!

9. Dinner at a fancy restaurant

The perfect excuse to dress up in your classiest clothes.

10. Go to a part of town that neither of you have ever been

11. Go for a drive with no destination in mind

Get off at a random exit and find somewhere cool to go.

12. Explore the nearest city and get lost

Wander around the city with no plans and no map, just walking and enjoying the views.

13. Check your town for local events such as festivals or fairs

14. Go to a wine tasting or a food tour (who doesn't love food?)

15. Rent bikes and explore

16. Go to the Aquarium

17. Go to an open-mic night or a cafe with live music

There's just something about the sound of an acoustic guitar.

18. Invite your date over and cook them an authentic meal

19. Go to the drive-in

Bring plenty of blankets, pillows and popcorn.

20. Get lost in a bookstore

Find old romance novels and read them to each other.

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.
