10 Perks Of Being Single When Everyone Else Is Cuffed Up

Everyone always gets so down in the dumps when it comes to being single, but they do not realize all the benefits that singleness brings. Being single is a blessing in and of itself. You don't have to worry about another human being's schedule to work around nor do you have to worry about you or an S.O. being a bed hog. I'm telling you, singleness has its perks.

Here are just 10 of the reasons not being "cuffed" is honestly the best:

1. You are more social.

Those who are single are more likely to socialize and make more IRL connections than those who are in a relationship. It's just a fact.

2. You don't have to stress over holiday plans.

There is a lot to plan over the holidays when you are in a relationship with somebody else, whose house are you going to for what holidays and when are you going? It honestly just sounds way too stressful.

3. You get more sleep.

Single people get more sleep. Getting enough sleep is crucial because it allows our bodies to have a time of rest and to heal from the things that our bodies have to endure during the day.

4. You can flirt with whoever, whenever.

Some people are just natural flirts. They like to flirt and flirt and flirt. If this is the case for you, stay single.

5. If you're a single woman, you probably earn more money.

Single women earn larger annual incomes than their married co-workers of the same age. I guess being single really does pay in some aspects.

6. You can spend more time with yourself.

It is just a fact that when you are not putting time into a S.O., you are able to put much more time into yourself.

7. You don't have to go out (and can avoid the cold).

If you're not seeing someone, you don't have to go outside in the freezing cold.

8. You don't have to stress about impressing your significant other's family.

The thought of trying to make the best first impression ever just causes way too much anxiety.

9. You can avoid the awkwardness of introducing your S.O. to your family.

You know those awkward family members who you really don't want to introduce to an S.O., but really have no choice? Well that problem is solved when you are not cuffed up.

10. You can wear sweats and a hoodie all the time.

Living in comfy clothes when you don't have to work? Count me in!

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.
