Realistic? No. Entertaining? Oh, yeah.

5 Bachelorette Scenarios That Never Actually Happen

I’m entirely guilty of being a religious "Bachelor"/"Bachelorette" fan. Every Monday night, my butt is planted on the couch and my eyes are glued to the TV. However, it doesn’t necessarily take a genius to figure out that shows like "The Bachelorette" are purely scripted. Hollywood generates these overly dramatic “reality” shows solely for entertainment. There are so many situations that take place during the show that never actually happen in real life, and here are a few of them.

For starters, no one has that many guys falling over them.

We get it - Jojo is great. She’s every guy’s dream girl. But to be quite honest, I don’t care how perfect you are. No one, with the exception of wealthy celebrities, has that many guys lining up to date them. It’s so hard to relate to the show for this main reason.

Also, no one looks that good when they wake up.

After a night in the fantasy suite, Jojo rolls out of bed looking flawless. Her makeup isn't smeared in the slightest, her hair is still intact and she looks absolutely perfect. To all the men that watch "The Bachelorette," we kindly ask you to lower your standards. No one actually looks like that when they wake up. I mean, sure, if I had a makeup team that followed me everywhere I went, maybe I would look like that too.

Nobody goes on such extravagant dates.

Unfortunately, the men of my generation lack in the dating category. Believe it or not, watching Netflix constitutes as a date these days. Pathetic, right? Don’t get me wrong, I love Netflix as much as the next person. However, watching the dates that take place on "The Bachelorette" is a major tease. No one goes on helicopter rides and ends their dates with fireworks on a private beach. This is not a thing.

No one talks over dinner without actually touching the food.

I don’t know about you, but when there’s food in front of me, you better believe I’m eating every last bite of it. It will forever baffle me how these people can sit through a dinner date and not even look at the food. How does one have that much self-control? This is one of the most unrealistic situations of them all.

No one cries so much.

Ninety-nine percent of every episode consists of Jojo crying - and I’m over it. Unless you have some sort of disorder, no one cries this much. This is largely unrealistic. Also, I don’t feel sorry for you in the first place, Jojo. You don’t necessarily have it rough right now. Do you know how hard it must be to be alone? You have guys lining up for you! Poor 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.
