The Beginning Of A Relationship As Told By Grey's Anatomy

The Beginning Of A Relationship As Told By Grey's Anatomy

The beginning of a relationship can be a little rocky but the first few months break down into some pretty clear stages.

1) The first meeting

You meet someone. Your eyes lock, your hands shake, and you awkwardly speak. They seem perfect, gorgeous eyes, amazing teeth, the whole nine yards. You exchange numbers, turn around and think:

2) Two weeks later

You two have been talking for a couple weeks now and you've learned their favorite color, food, how many siblings they have, and what their goals are. Two weeks of texting and no future face-to-face interaction has been planned. You begin to wonder if they're actually not interested at all. One night, they text you asking you to "hang" tomorrow...

3) The first "date"

Your first "date" together consists of quite literally hanging out, watching a movie on the couch and eating heaping amounts of popcorn. But, this doesn't bother you because laughter outweighs formality. You think you'll probably have abs by the time this date is done because of the laughing and the tickle fights. Your mind starts weighing the possibility that this is all too good to be true

4) Four dates and many hours spent later..

It's easy-going, it's fun, it's perfect. It's three months later and you have inside jokes and lovely memories. You two go to a super nice restaurant and talk about those good times. You know the four words that are going to come out of his mouth before he even says it

Essentially... "I love you"

5) The first cry

Together for six months, you decide to tell your SO about the fight that you just had with your best friend. This sharing of feelings turns into a plethora of unsteady emotions, hysterics, and tears. You knew it would happen eventually, that you would look like a raccoon that tried to swim in a highly chlorinated pool. You rise above the water with bloodshot eyes, running mascara and shaking hands that need to be held. You look at your SO and jump into their arms. While your SO loves and cares for you, the first thought that pops into their mind is:

6) All in all, life's good

A year later, some days you may want to throw your SO out a window but you know that you are stronger together than you are apart. That's all that matters at the end of the day. You are each other's support no matter how crazy the times may get. You are a team.

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.
