6 Things To Remember If You're Going Through A Breakup

1. You're going to be OK.

These are things I wish someone had told me. I remember being in middle school, going through my first ever "breakup" and being so "heartbroken," I almost told my mom. I wasn't allowed to date back then, and for a good reason obviously. I didn't even know what love even was.

However, I still wish I'd had a friend or two to give me a hug or lend me a shoulder to cry on. I wish I could go back in time, back to high school, and give better advice to my old high school friends. I watched as each of them went through their own heartbreaks, wasting tears over a guy they probably don't even remember now.

I wish I could be that big sister or best friend to all of you girls out there, crying themselves to sleep over a guy who couldn't care less.

But I'm not, and if you're going through a breakup and don't have a kickass best friend to be there for you, consider myself your Internet bestie. Here are 6 things you need to remember and remind yourself every day:

1. You're going to be OK 

Obviously, it's easier said than done. However, it's true. You will be okay. At the end of the day, it just wasn't meant to be. And it's better you break up now and move on then later on down the road. Everything happens for a reason. Time heals all wounds, even the deepest cuts.

2. Everything happens for a reason 

As I said, everything happens for a reason. Maybe it just wasn't the right time (or person). Maybe you just aren't in the right place for a relationship. Maybe they're not in the right place for a relationship. Regardless, it happened. So, the best thing you can do for yourself is accepting it and start your healing process.

3. Give yourself time to heal 

Don't jump back out there and sleep with every guy (or girl) you meet. Don't make innocent boys or girls your rebound (unless they're OK with that). Sure, you probably want to get back out there and get your mind off of he-who-shall-not-be-named, but you need time to heal. So, let yourself heal.

4. Allow yourself to love again 

This is a hard one, but when you do feel ready (you'll know when you are), let yourself love again. Don't hold onto hope that your ex-boo thang will come running back to you. You deserve to love and be loved.

5. You are capable of love and being loved 

Remember you are capable of loving someone because you probably loved your last very much. And just because it didn't work out with them, doesn't mean it won't work out with the next guy.

6. You're still a badass b*tch 

No matter what, you are still a badass b*tch. Remember that.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
