I Deserve Better

I deserve better than I've been getting.

I Deserve Better

You say you care. You say you love me. You say that I make you happier than anyone else ever has. All I hear is how happy I make you. All I hear is how I treat you so well...I wish I could say the same about you. I deserve better.

I deserve someone that's going to love me the way I deserve to be loved. I deserve someone who is going to look at me like I hang the moon. I deserve someone who will fight through the tough times. I deserve someone who will communicate with me when we argue, instead of turning his back. I deserve someone who will listen to everything that I say. I deserve someone who will at least act like what I say is more interesting than what's on TV or his phone. I deserve someone who is going to tell me that I'm the most beautiful girl he's ever seen, and mean it. I deserve someone who will know my worth, and cherish it. I deserve someone who would truly do everything he can to make sure that I'm happy. I deserve someone that will give in the relationship as much as I do. I deserve someone who will understand the importance of who I am as a person, and never try to compromise or tear that down. I deserve someone that will fall in love with my heart before he falls in love with my body. I deserve to be protected, and to always feel safe no matter what. I deserve to be able to live without the fear of being abused.

I deserve to be a priority. I deserve to be put first. I deserve to be wanted in return. I deserve to be shown respect, and I deserve someone that will never make me feel inferior. I deserve someone that will walk beside me instead of leaving me trailing behind. I deserve someone that will notice when I walk into a room, and not someone that won't even bother to look up. I deserve someone that's willing to help me reach my dreams. I deserve someone that will be happy for my accomplishments instead of someone that will be jealous because of their failures.

Words don't mean anything when you aren't showing them, but they mean everything when you are cutting into my heart like a double edged sword. I deserve someone who will not only tell me what I need to hear sometimes, but will mean it as well. I deserve someone that will always use kind words. I deserve someone that is man enough to admit when he is wrong, and sometimes even when he's not wrong.

I deserve a nourishing relationship. I deserve a relationship that is strengthened by the hard times. I deserve a relationship that actually deserves me. I deserve someone that will go to church with me, and will be willing to grow our relationship with God as the foundation. I deserve better than I've been getting.

I 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.
