7 Things Everyone In A Long Distance Relationship Should Remember

Being in a long distance relationship in college can be difficult. And I'm still learning how to overcome some of the challenges of being with someone who lives in a different state. However, I've also become more aware that I'm not alone and there are many people in a similar situation. Here are some important things all of us who are lucky enough to have a long distance love should remember:

    1. Communication is key and texting will become your new best friend.

    2. Don’t be upset if there are days when you don’t have each other’s full attention.

    You both have lives and are busy people. But when you do hear from them, they're sure to make you smile and your day gets a little better.

    3. Trust one another.

    This is huge and the only way things will work. It doesn’t make much sense to be sitting around worrying if he’s off with someone else. You shouldn’t have to question each other’s commitment.

    4. There will probably be days that are more challenging than others.

    And when the thought of them not being there with you feels unbearable, it’s okay to listen to your sappiest playlist. Missing someone is not a bad thing, just don’t let being sad consume your everyday life.

    5. Technology is there for you.

    Besides texting, it is important to hear each other's voice. And it is possible to have a conversation face to face, through a screen of course. But still, you will want to talk to each other even if it's not in person.

    6. When you get the chance to spend time together, cherish every moment and don't take any second for granted.

    7. It might seem hard now, but it will get easier.

    The beginning of a long distance relationship can be tough. But don’t give up. If you truly care for each other, things will work out.

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.

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.
