Why Crushes Suck

It's not easy having feelings

Why Crushes Suck

It's a typical day.

You're convinced your feeling can't get any worse, you've made it past the "maybe I should talk to you" phase. You've bitten the bullet. Maybe it's the Christmas spirit, or maybe it's the butterflies that won't leave you alone, but you decide to ask he to coffee.

So you meet up. You guys sit and drink coffee (you melt a little inside every time he talks to you but it's fine). You learn more about him, he learns more about you, and you leave with a massive smile and an inability to walk properly. After running into doors, you come home to a text that makes you melt all over again.

That's when it hits you. You didn't want to get this invested, you tried to fight it, but you can't. This beautiful human walked right into your life and now you're farther gone than you anticipated. So he calls you and plans an official first date. After days of panicking and utter fear, you've picked an outfit and set your alarms. You're totally prepared to wake up and drive an hour and a half to meet this guy, totally ready.

You make it through the date and go home belting Taylor Swift.

Next thing you know you drive and only listen to the stupid country songs that remind you of him. You find yourself thinking about him and smiling for NO REASON. You even find yourself driving to places in the middle of nowhere (Ruston, LA) just for the chance to see him.

Literally, how could this happen to you? You spent so much time being guarded and reserved, trying not to fall for anyone. You were almost there, so close.

Maybe you'll take a break and get some sleep... wait, did he just text you again?

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.
