10 Cheap But Fun Date Ideas

A date is about having fun with the one you love, not about how much you spend.

I am in college, therefore, I am broke. When people think of dates, most people think of fancy dinners, the movies, and theme park dates. However, I think date night should be about spending quality time with the one you love. If you are broke, but have someone you love, take a look at these ideas.

What's better than a home cooked meal, romantic lighting, and someone you love?

Watching Netflix and eating popcorn on the couch

Having breakfast at home on the porch

What's better than waking up and cooking breakfast with your partner? Imagine enjoying homemade food and coffee together, while listening to birds chirp. Perfect.

Thrift store date

You and your partner can pick out a cute, but cheap, outfit for each other.


Enjoy the fresh air and the sound of running water.

Go on a walk

Make something together

Eric and I love to make crafts together!

If Dirty Dancing taught me anything, it is that dancing can be super fun and hot! ;)

Go into dollar tree and get something you and your partner can do something together with. Such as, a puzzle or a coloring book.

Don't forget to have fun with your love!

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.
