Sorry, Not Sorry, Chuck And Blair Are The Furthest Couple From #RelationshipGoals

Sorry to be a cynic, but someone had to say it.

Sorry, Not Sorry, Chuck And Blair Are The Furthest Couple From #RelationshipGoals

No matter how many times you watch and rewatch “Gossip Girl” from start to finish over and over again, one thing is an undeniable fact:

You can’t help but root for Chuck and Blair.

For some reason, everyone gets sucked into the romance between Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass no matter how toxic it gets. We root for them even though their relationship is pretty much as messed up as it can get and we still call them “#RelationshipGoals.”

But let’s set one thing straight.

Chuck and Blair are the furthest couple from “#RelationshipGoals.”

Now, I would be lying if I told you I didn’t root for them the first and second (OK, and maybe third) time I watched the show, but we need to stop romanticizing their toxic relationship.

Chuck and Blair are abusive to each other, but we forgive them and we pray they forgive each other mistake after mistake because deep down we know and they know that they are meant to be.

But that’s not real life.

If the person you love sells you to their uncle in a business deal, they are not the one for you.

If the person you love manipulates you time and time again, you need to walk away.

Love shouldn't involve schemes.

Chuck and Blair live a fictional life and we are led to believe that their love is so strong that it can erase their past mistakes, but it doesn’t work like that in real life. I don’t mean to sound jaded, but it’s important to recognize that Chuck and Blair are not the ideal couple.

If you have ever been in a relationship even half as messed up as Chuck and Blair’s, you know that toxicity isn’t sexy or romantic.

At the lowest points in their on-again-off-again relationship, Chuck even got violent with Blair, smashing a window behind her, cutting her face with the glass. Yet, we all forgive him and look past this because we rationalize that he "just loves her so much." In real life, the Chuck Basses of the world don’t turn into the Nate Archibalds. You can’t date someone with the intention of changing them.

I’m not saying Chuck and Blair shouldn’t be together because in the fictional “Gossip Girl” world, I like to believe that they mature and their relationship is magically healthy after their wedding, but unfortunately, we don’t live lives written by Hollywood screenwriters and we need to stop calling them “#RelationshipGoals.” In real life, Chuck and Blair probably wouldn’t have a happy ending.

Don’t set your sights on a toxic relationship like theirs, you deserve better.

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.
