Ladies, College Is About Meeting Your Bridesmaids, Not The Groom
Maddie Stallings

This past week, I saw a tweet that read “college is about meeting the bridesmaids, not the groom.”

It hit me because lately, I have just been in this mood of wanting a boyfriend, and trying to search for “the one.”

That tweet kind of gave me a wake-up call, like hey, I am young, I am free, and I should just be having a good time with my girls.

I just finished my freshman year of college. I have made friends and built strong friendships since graduating high school. Some of the girls I am friends with, I could imagine being my bridesmaids. Now, the guys in my life, yikes, definitely no grooms so far.

But that's okay, I am okay with focusing on my girlfriends and just having a good time.

It is prime time in my life, time to be carefree, have girls nights, and make lifelong friends.

Not only have I met some of my best friends in college, but I still have friends from elementary and high school.

I have started to learn how to cherish and depend on my girls because well FRICK BOYS!

There is really no rush to meet your groom in college, there is no need. Chill out and spend time with your girls, because you want your best friends standing by your side when you do finally meet and are marrying your groom.

Your girls should always come first and make sure those friendships are strong. Boys will come and go, especially in college.

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.
