Demi Lovato And Max Ehrich Broke Off Their Engagement And, Sorry Not Sorry, We Saw This Coming

I love Demi, but I can't say I'm surprised.

Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich

That's right, you heard that correctly: Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich called off their engagement after the couple originally announced their engagement in July after beginning to date in March.

As sad as I am for the two of them because it was probably an incredibly hard decision, you really don't know someone after only four months of dating. In fact, the "honeymoon phase" of dating can be anything from six months to two years. Considering they started dating in March, and it's now September, they really just hit the end of that honeymoon phase as this was all going down.

It doesn't mean they didn't love each other at some point or want to be with each other, it just means that as the starry eyes and heart eyes wore off, so did the relationship.

In all reality, most couples date for an average of two to five years before getting engaged and remain engaged for 12 to 18 months before getting married. This isn't to say that a quick engagement and marriage can't be successful because it can be, but this is to say that maybe, just maybe, Demi and Max got starry-eyed and overzealous in their honeymoon phase.

Relationships have to be tested, and they can be tested in short relationships at times. The true test comes, though, when you've been with someone for years, seen them at their worst, seen them at their best, and everything in between and still want to wake up every day and fight for your relationship. Fight for that person even when it's hard because you can't picture your life without them.

A four-month relationship followed by a two-month engagement seems pretty disposable to me.

People can enter your life just as suddenly as they can leave it, and I think that's why so many people tend to date for several years before making that commitment because marriage is a super serious commitment and not something to be taken lightly. You need to make sure that your future spouse isn't going to walk out of the door just as quickly as they walked into it.

So, sorry not sorry, but as much as everyone was rooting for this to work out, if we're honest with ourselves, we knew that more than likely it wasn't going to last...

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.
