5 Ways to Improve a Relationship

1. Try and be the most positive person in every relationship. Do not use verbal abusive behaviors. Do not go out of your way to say negative comments, put down the other or threaten to leave the relationship. Once one of these abusive behaviors have been said or done you cannot take them back. Being negative is toxic and hurtful to not only the other person in the relationship but you as well. When it is hardest for you to use kindness that is always when it is most necessary.

5 Ways to Improve a Relationship
Matt Brodeur
  1. Try and be the most positive person in every relationship. Do not use verbal abusive behaviors. Do not go out of your way to say negative comments, put down the other or threaten to leave the relationship. Once one of these abusive behaviors have been said or done you cannot take them back. Being negative is toxic and hurtful to not only the other person in the relationship but you as well. When it is hardest for you to use kindness that is always when it is most necessary.
  2. Be reasonable. Do not be stubborn. It is very had grow in relationships if you do not compromise. Realize and acknowledge your faults before accusing the other person. At times, it can be hard to admit you’re wrong but when you can admit when you’re wrong, that shows a strength that others will admire and will want to work on a relationship with you.
  3. Be accepting and respectful. Do not act superior or judgmental. Every one is different and unique, and although we all excel at times, it is important to respect others for what they have achieved. Finding acceptance, even though you may not understand their mindset will be very useful in other relationships. We are all different. We all must learn to love others so we can learn to love ourselves as well.
  4. Be understanding. Do not be critical. Always seeking the negative traits of others is a sign a weakness and low self esteem. Being critical in any relationship is unattractive. Turn the pointer finger around at yourself. This will give you perspective on that person and how they may feel.
  5. Be open and honest. No one wants to be in a relationship where they never really know if the other person cares about them. Communication is the foundation of any relationship if you do not have that you simply do not have a relationship. Go and give others faith and deniability, it will go along ways.

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.

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.
