Valentine's Day is right around the corner and if you haven't already planned what you are getting your book-crazed girlfriend, then you should probably get on that. Luckily for you, I have a whole gift-guide covered for you. All you need to do is add it to cart, order, and you've ensured a happy girlfriend this Valentine's Day.

Does she have an all-time favorite book or series? Get her a matching candle to serve as a constant reminder of it. If she has multiple favorites, then get her a book-scented candle so she can always be reminded of the joy to be had when cracking open a new book.

Bookish mugs.

Get her favorite book quote on a large cozy mug. She will love sipping coffee as it rains, with a good book in her hand.

Take her to the bookstore.

Go on a date to the bookstore! Take her to a cute second-hand shop and each choose a book for the other. Then, after your done, sit down with coffee and food, and read!

Prior to seeing her, get one of her favorite books and read it. As you do so, highlight and circle and underline favorite parts, quotes, and things that remind you of her in it. When you give it to her, she will not only be touched by the fact that you read one of her favorite books, but that she will get to re-read it and see it through your eyes.

Take her on a date from a book.

Find a cute date idea from one of her favorite books! Whether it's stargazing in a field, or doing an extravagant series of things, she will love the fact that you took the time to research and reenact scenes from her books.

Go bookshop hopping.

Figure out where all the bookstores in your town are and visit each one. Make a game out of it and try to find the prettiest cover, ugliest cover, funniest title, etc. End the night with dessert and coffee.

Blackout poetry.

Take her to Goodwill or a second-hand bookshop and each pick out a book. Then, go to a fun coffee shop, back home to a cute dinner, or a picnic. With two pencils and sharpies, use the words on the pages to make a funny story or beautiful poetry. Blackout all the words you didn't circle with the pencil, leaving a creative poem. Have fun with it and write each other love letters, inside jokes, etc.

Book chair.

Reading isn't the most comfortable thing to do. Get your girl a nice little chair where she can keep her coffee beside her, her favorite books in the holders, and read comfortably.

Have a fun game night at home and battle it out over this fun twist to a classic game! Keep it interesting and have books you can "buy" with the remaining money at the end.

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.
