No pre-teen, teens, adults or anyone should idealize their relationship!

9 Reasons Edward And Bella's Relationship Is Actually Extremely Toxic

So, my roommates and I decided to take up watching The Twilight series as a way to de-stress and let me tell you it does the trick. I haven't (ironically) laughed obnoxiously hard at a movie in a long time, and I've quite enjoyed watching them-for every reason they weren't made for. Although, I can't ignore the fact that Edward and Bella's relationship is EXTREMELY TOXIC! And the fact that people have been idealizing it for 10 years is downright atrocious. Now I'm here to unpack every little thing right now!

1. Edward terrifies Bella.

As he should. He's a vampire.

2. Edward is controls what she does, who she sees, and where she goes.


We get that you're trying to protect her but like CHILL!

3. Edward makes all of the decisions.


Bella has a mind too! If your relationship was 2 sided, shit would've been better.

4. They both threaten to commit suicide MORE THAN ONCE


No one is worth that guys. And that guilt and blame is so toxic.



I get that he's a vampire and she has pure blood or whatever, but keep it to yourself or just walk away!

6. Pushing, biting, kicking, etc...



7. He forced Bella to leave her home MULTIPLE TIMES


Let the girl live her life! And poor Charlie!

8. Edward is constantly accusing her of cheating.


We all know that Jacob is literally hot, but you have to trust your woman!



Okay Edward, the whole time you're like "No! I don't want this life for you!" But you are recklessly in love with her enough to let it happen anyways! And Bella, where is your independence!

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.

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.
