An Open Letter To The Love Of My Life

Dear sweetheart,

A year ago you walked into my life and I haven't been the same since. You are the love that came without warning. You had my heart before I could say no.

I originally wasn't looking for a relationship, but you came and swept me off my feet. No matter how hard I tried to push you away, you always came back. I don't know why you did because I'm a pain in the ass, but I'm glad because if you didn't I wouldn't have found my confidant, best friend, the love of my life.

You're here for me through everything. Whenever I have a bad day you're the first person I turn to because nothing is more comforting than being wrapped in your embrace and listening to you tell me everything is going to be okay. Sometimes when I'm being irrational (which is actually a lot) you tell me and I always protest, but you're always right. You don't even have to say much, but just knowing that you're here by my side through everything is enough.

You make me a better person. I hate the phrase "better half" in a relationship because I believe that people in a relationship should be their own person, but you help me be the best possible version of myself. You are always on the sidelines cheering me on, no matter what crazy project I decide to take on next. Watching you succeed makes my heart happy. Nothing inspires me more than my love succeeding and conquering his goals. You're my rock.

You inspire me immensely. You have a huge heart and would help anybody if you could. You don't know this, but your mom has told me stories about you doing random acts of kindness that makes me love you even more. You're the most genuine person I have ever met and tell people exactly how you feel about them. You don't sugar coat anything and that's a blessing in disguise for me. You're smart, driven and passionate. That's everything I was looking for and more.

Of course we fight, but what relationship doesn't have bickering moments? They say love is blind, but it's not. Love is all-seeing and accepting. Even though we both have flaws and irritate each other constantly, at the end of the day we accept each other for who we are. Love is seeing all the flaws and blemishes and accepting them. Love is recognizing all the fears and insecurities, and knowing your job is to comfort. Love is working through the painful times because you know your significant other is worth it. Infatuation is fragile and will shatter when life gets rough. Love is strong and it strengthens because it is real. Let me tell you, you're worth it completely.

I can't wait until we have our own house 10 years from now and we can nit-pick eachother all the time while cooking dinner and watching reruns of Friends. Nothing excites me more than going through all of the stages of life with the love of my life by my side.

I love you for all that you are, all that you have been, and all you're yet to be.

Love always,

Your girlfriend

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.
