Dear Future Husband

I Just Want To Thank You In Advance For, Well, Everything

Dear Future Husband

Dear Future Husband,

I continuously open my Facebook page and see someone new get engaged, and thinking about that scares me because it’s a sign of growing up. But what doesn’t scare me is the thought of you, my future husband, whomever you may be.

First off, I want to say thank you for accepting me for who I am. Whether it's my farting too much, having weird pet peeves, or the fact that I am obsessed with my pets, thank you for never thinking I’m strange. Thank you for always having a secret stash of my favorite food to give to me in the middle of the night when I have weird cravings. And thank you for being up to go through the drive-thru just because of a cheeseburger craving.

I also want to thank you for never letting me go, or letting me push you away, no matter how hard I try. Know that I will do the same for you. No matter what disagreement we might have, thank you for putting me in my place when needed, as well as having the courage to admit when you might be wrong. I am not the type of person who ever plans on getting divorced, so no matter the problem, I know we will get through it.

Just know that I am forever grateful that you waltzed into my life. You know the phrase “love comes into your life when you least expect it?” Well, you proved that to be true. You also proved my insane ideals of a perfect man to be true. I grew up on Disney princess movies, so thank you for accepting my obsession with Cinderella and Prince Charming, and for being my own, real-life version of Prince Charming.

You are my best friend, and nothing will ever change that. No matter how mad I seem to be, it probably won’t last long. Best friends fight, right? Best friends also share all their faults and accept each other no matter what. So never be afraid to be yourself around me, because obviously I love you for who you are (I mean, we’re married, and it doesn’t get any more serious than that).

I’m not the type of girl who expects big romantic gestures, because if you truly love me, I’ll know. I love the little things, whether it's that you put a blanket on me when I fall asleep on the couch, make me something as simple as a sandwich for dinner, or even sit through "The Bachelor" with me pretending that you are interested in who he picks. I don’t need a dozen roses, chocolates, or expensive jewelry. I just need you.

Most importantly, thank you for showing me what love is. I hope I can do the same for you.

With all my love,

Your Future Wife

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.
