Life isn't over.. I promise!

5 Tips For Girls During Their First Heartbreak

When I was 19, I had my heart broken by the first guy that I ever loved. I thought life was over, but I was so very wrong. Looking back, it all seems silly now. Yes, in my mind he was the first guy I loved, but we were so young. I’m not sure that anyone really knows what “true love” is at that age. So, I’m here to give the girls that are going through their first heartbreak a few pointers.

1. You're going to be okay.

It may not feel like it right now, but you will get there. Every day after the breakup is the road to a new beginning. Each day you will find that the hurt isn't as bad and the tears are coming less and less, until one day, they’re both gone for good.

2. Don't mope around.

It’s okay to be sad and have a few cry sessions. Spend time with friends and family. Surrounding yourself with the people that love you the most is the first step to your new beginning. They’re the ones that will always be there for you.

3. Ice cream and cookies.

No, it’s not going to fix things, but it sure won’t hurt you! Grab your best friend, your favorite ice cream, and favorite cookie dough. Have a dance party in the kitchen while the cookies bake! When they’re done baking, toss a few in with your ice cream & enjoy!

4. Forgive him.

Hating him for breaking your heart isn’t going to make life any better, so just forgive him. You’re not going to want to see or speak to him anytime soon, but maybe one day you’ll be able to friends again. Although my ex and I have both moved on in our lives and no longer communicate with one another, we did eventually get to that point for a little while.

5. Pick up the pieces and move on.

Again, this isn’t going to happen overnight. It’s going to hurt for a while and that’s okay. In order for you to move on, you have to deal with that hurt. Once you get through it, you’ll realize that you’re much stronger than you were. You’ll start moving on with your life. The guy that broke your heart is most likely not the man you will marry. He’ll always be a part of your past, but one day you’re going to meet someone that makes all of the heartbreak worth it.

After reading this, you may think I’m crazy if you just had your heart broken. Like I said in the beginning, I was 19 when it happened to me. Now, I’m 25 and very much in love with the man I hope to marry in the next few years. Heartbreak sucks, but I wouldn’t be with the love of my life now if someone hadn’t broken my heart six years ago. It was worth every tear. Don’t ever give up on love ladies!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
