If You Cheat, You Deserve To Be Alone

Cheating is never good.

If You Cheat, You Deserve To Be Alone

From Beyoncé and Jay Z to Tristan and Khloe, we have all heard of at least one famous media cheating scandal from time to time. However, cheating has been a common occurrence in today's media. If you ask me, it has been occurring a little TOO often.

Recently, we have had major cheating scandals occur in the media, from YouTubers Tana Mongeau and Brad Sosua to royalty family's own William and Kate's recent cheating rumor. Cheating is popping up EVERYWHERE from the people you'd least expect.

Which brings me to my first point: these stories are talked about like they are "Breaking News."

These people cheated on their significant others, people! This is not something that should be normalized and applauded. These people did something horrible and degrading to another person and we act like it's just another story for our entertainment. The whole idea of "celebrity cheating" is always controversial, but for all the wrong reasons. People are quick to choose sides of their favorite celebrities instead of hearing both sides.

Just a friendly reminder: cheating is NEVER good, no matter who is involved.

They could be your childhood idol, your current idol, your past idol. At the end of the day, this person is a human being who hurt another human being in a selfish way. I would be absolutely devastated if my idol and role model turned out to be someone I don't agree with.

However, after knowing that my beloved role model has done something like cheat on their significant other, I would not be able to look at them the same, let alone continue to support and admire them. Celebrities have this "untouchable" quality to them, which at times means that people turn a blind eye to their wrongdoings i.e. cheating.

These people do not deserve your support or your free publicity.

The more we publish, debate, and celebrate people for their bad behavior, the more we are reinforcing it. Someone remotely famous does a bad deed and in return, we give them "clout."

Cheating leaves someone feeling terrible about themselves and feeling like an idiot. Cheating makes people rethink their entire relationship and even blame themselves. That feeling sucks as is, and I can only imagine how it feels to have the whole world also trying to add their two cents in as well.

At the end of the day, people should remember the golden rule just like we learned in the first f*cking grade: treat people the way you would want to be treated.

Would you voluntarily want to be cheated on? Would you want someone you loved and trusted to go against that for another person? I really hope that the answer is no.

If you aren't happy in a relationship, then break up with the other person first. The feeling of getting dumped is better than the feeling of being betrayed. Taking advantage of a person's love and trust is cruel, and if you are someone who does that or supports that, I don't think you really understand the feeling or meaning of the word "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.
