Boyfriends, Relax, Here Are 3 Reasons Your Girlfriend Needs To Go On Spring Break Without You

In college, breaks are hard on relationships. You're used to being around each other a lot, and then suddenly you're not for an extended period of time, and it sucks.

Significant others tend to get a little uneasy when it comes time for spring break. Out of all of the college holiday breaks, this one has the biggest negative association with it.

In a healthy relationship, the two involved should be okay with having their own respective vacays. However, guys typically get a little more controlling when the bikini season rolls around, and here are some reasons they need to just chill out and let their girlfriend beach it up without them.

1. She's trustworthy enough to handle this, or else you wouldn't be with her in the first place.

Yeah, maybe your girlfriend is going to South Padre Island with a bunch of people from college that are maybe in fraternities, but that shouldn't matter. If you're an exclusive couple and have established these monogamous expectations, you shouldn't be freaking out about what could happen. If all you do is freak out on her and text her about what she's wearing or who's around her at all times, it's not going to be a fun spring break for either of you.

2. She should be able to build memories with her friends.

College is rough for everybody. Midterms just happened, and all she really wants to do is relax and maybe get a little lit with her friends. So, let her enjoy time with them, because she's allowed to have other people in her life other than you.

3. You're her boyfriend, not her father.

She honestly doesn't have to listen to you, but she probably will out of respect and a desire to maintain the relationship. But it's not right to abuse that love from her by setting up rules and restrictions on what she's "allowed" to do without you there. That's crazy, controlling, and toxic. Just because you have a dad bod, Brad, doesn't mean you're an authoritative figure to her.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
