It's not always about the romance.

I'm pretty sure everyone would agree that there are many perks to having a significant other, such as love, caring, blah, blah, blah. But as I enter my first long-term relationship, I am realizing that there are a lot more perks than what I always hear about. So, here are just some of the unexpected perks that come with having a boyfriend.

1. I have a whole second wardrobe of clothes.

They're so much comfier than mine.

2. I also have a whole second house with a second fridge and a second pantry full of food.

You have dill pickle chips?! We never get those at my house!

3. And a second (set of) dog(s).

Your dog definitely loves me more than she loves you.

4. I always have someone to pop my back for me.

And it's free.

5. I always have someone to make fun of.

But it's even, because you make fun of me, too. Freak.

6. I always have someone to share inside jokes with.

A rose. Hahahahaha. Oh, sorry, you had to be there.

7. I learn a lot about sports.

You should have never introduced me to Cam Newton if you didn't want him to be bae.

7. I always have someone to show funny videos and pictures to.

And you react in the exact way I expect you to.

8. I always have someone to eat with.

If I get this, will you share it with me?

9. I always have someone to tell secrets to.

Even if their not my own, and I wasn’t supposed to tell anyone. Oops…

10. I never have to be cold again.

There are no personal bubbles between us.

11. I always have someone to sing duets with.

I really can't stay–but, baby, it's cold outside.

12. I always have someone to hate the same things I hate.

Which is basically everyone but us.

13. I always have someone to listen to my complaints.

And agree with me about my first-world problems.

14. I always have someone to tell me I don’t suck.

The only time you're not calling me a loser. And the only time you're being serious.

15. I always have someone to play games with.

And I even let you win sometimes.

16. I always have someone who will vouch for me.

Even when I'm wrong. Which is a lot.

17. I always have someone to laugh at my jokes.

So I don’t have to laugh at them myself. Like I always do.

18. I always have someone to be dorky with.

But in a cool way.

19. I always have someone to be there when I fall.

And laugh at me while they wait for me to get up.

20. I always have someone to dab—I mean dance—with.

Any song. Anywhere.

21. I always have someone to share in my bad habits with.

Soda before bed? Don't mind if we do.

22. I always have someone to watch scary movies with.

You: *Gets up to go to the bathroom*

Me: Where are you going? Don't leave me!

23. I always have someone to play Family Feud with.

And we always win.

24. I always have someone to share stuff with/steal stuff from.

What do you mean your water bottle? It's our water bottle.

25. I always have someone that knows me better than anyone else.

And I get to know you in the same way.

26. I always have a best friend.

You are the Jim to my Pam. I love you!

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.
