There is a special holiday coming up for loved ones. A day filled with love, candy hearts, and frantic, last-minute gift shopping.

Of course, we are talking about Galentine's Day, because friendships are everything.

What is Galentine's Day, you ask? Well, it is Leslie Knope's favorite, self-invented holiday. In her own words, "It's only the best day of the year."

On the day before Valentine's Day, Galentine's Day means you celebrate the love you have for your closest girls. Bring your coworker, mom, roommates, or even your favorite Starbucks barista. It is a day to celebrate your fellow women.

1. Brunch

Leslie Knope spends her Galentine's Day at JJ's Diner. Keke's or Metro Diner serve as sufficient substitutes.

2. Eat waffles

For any great Galentine's day, eating breakfast is pretty much an unwritten rule. Make sure to settle in with a pile of waffles in front of you. It is a must.

3. Exchange gifts

A simple card will do. It shows your thoughtfulness. But, I know I would not mind one of those stuffed animals that are entirely unnecessary and bigger than me.

4. Take a road trip

Since the day should be dedicated to your friends, a girl's trip to St. Augustine or Disney is the perfect way to spend this special holiday.

5. Shower each other with love

This day is the perfect time to reflect on memories and start planning new ones.

6. Capture the memories

Of course, you will want to capture this day and all its cuteness. Take pictures of your adventures and share on social media.

7. Watch a movie

Hint: "Fifty Shades Freed."

8. TV show marathon

It is a given that you should watch where it all started. Spend the night binge-watching "Parks and Recreation," witnessing Leslie Knope create this much-celebrated holiday - my president.

9. Throw a party

The only way to truly celebrate with the girls is to celebrate with the girls.

10. Karaoke

Include karaoke at your party and end the night embarrassing yourself among friends. Spice Girl's "Wannabe" and Shania Twain's Man, I Feel Like A Woman!" are acceptable choices.

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.
