A Guide On Falling In Love...With Yourself

Oh the amount of times I've had my girlfriends tell me "Just focus on loving yourself!"

A Guide On Falling In Love...With Yourself

Let me start this article off by saying, we are all human. We're not programmed to be perfect. We all have battles with ourselves, some that we win, and some that we lose. That doesn't mean we should stop fighting.

I want you, yes you, to fall deeply in love with yourself.

I want you to think about what happens when you fall in love. You get excited to see him, you want to make plans with him, and you love everything about him, the good and the bad. You feel the infamous butterflies in your stomach, your cheeks hurt from smiling so much, and your world becomes brighter.

Now turn "him" into "you". Feel the same about yourself. Just as you would in a relationship. Get excited to see your beautiful self in the mirror, make plans with yourself, and most of all. Love everything about you, the good and the bad.

I want you, yes you, to fall deeply in love with yourself. You're worth more than those negative feelings you hold inside. You might not think about this, but everyday you're growing, you're closer to achieving your goals and becoming who you want to be. Be proud of her no matter what, because she's amazing. You're amazing.

I want you, yes you, to fall deeply in love with yourself. Look at yourself in the mirror every morning and smile. Look at your physical features and realize no one has your hair, your eyes, your nose, or even your teeth. You're one of a kind, because you literally are.

Now repeat after me, I love myself.

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.
