15 Reasons Why My Girlfriend & I Should Be Your Relationship Goals
Olivia Gemarro

So I might be a little biased, but my girlfriend, Autumn, is one of the best girlfriends anyone could ever have. I only met her a few months ago, but I already feel connected to her in ways that I haven't ever felt connected with anyone before. To put it simply, considering I could ramble on about her for hours, she is one of the funniest, strongest, and most caring people I have ever met and I am so blessed to have her in my life.

As for our relationship, it's stress-free, adventurous, and overall very healthy and focused on happiness. Here are just 15 more specific reasons as to why Autumn and I should be YOUR relationship goals:

1. We call each other every night and fall asleep on the phone

At this point, I can't remember a night this month that I haven't fallen asleep in the middle of a conversation with her.

2. We hold hands as she drives

Also, I'd just like to point out that she is EXTREMELY cute when she drives. The focused look on her face or the way she sings along to the radio is just too adorable for words.

3. We plan dates for each other

Autumn wanted to take me to her favorite places in her hometown. We wound up at her favorite coffee shop and then wandered downtown for a little while - it was such an intimate experience and I'll never forget it.

4. She makes doodles for me based on stories I've told her or things I've said

She surprised me with these little drawings on one of the first days we met up and I swear, my heart cried in the best way.

5. She lets me wear her sweatshirts

I've never even been to the Hard Rock Cafe, let alone the Hard Rock Cafe in Nashville. But I wear her sweatshirts most days out of the week and she's definitely not getting them back.

6. We're each other's biggest supporters

My girl is the stage manager for her school's theater production and she's been working so hard to keep everything running smoothly. And on top of that, she might have to fill the role of one character and learn all of their lines. So she's been nervous about that, but she knows I'll always be here to comfort her and motivate her.

7. We are THAT couple that will hold hands everywhere and anywhere, even when our friends are there

Catch me and Autumn holding hands under the table at the diner, as we're walking through the mall, or as we're snuggling at the movies. And we really don't care who sees.

8. She made me a playlist of songs that remind her of me

She even put a RAINBOW in it. And all of the songs are so cute that I can't hold back a smile when I hear any of them.

9. I'm writing her this article

Yep, this one's just for you, babe. :)

10. We can spend time apart and still feel okay

Right now, Autumn goes to a branch campus of Ohio University in her hometown, which is about an hour away from where I am. But she's such a good sport and makes the trip over whenever she can, and I would definitely go to see her if I only had a car. While we miss each other like crazy when we're apart, we try to focus less on the distance between us and more on how amazing it feels when we finally get to spend time together.

11. We send each other less-than-flattering selfies and gush over how beautiful the other girl is

You're probably thinking, "this isn't even a bad selfie." And you're absolutely right, because Autumn has never taken a bad selfie, nor will she ever.

12. We go on photoshoots together just because

Autumn and I spent a lovely day in Columbus over spring break and there were ENDLESS photo opportunities that we could both take advantage of. Most of mine turned out to be pictures of her…but she's so photogenic, so how could I not?

13. You know immediately that we're together that day because we're featured on each other's Snapchat stories

Our friends probably think we're really annoying…oh well. They just hate us 'cause they ain't us. ;)

14. We can tease each other endlessly with no hard feelings

It's official. We're not girlfriends - we're known as the dork (me) and the dweeb (her).

15. We both know that, at the end of the day, we've always got each other's backs

I know I can always count on Autumn to support me through tough times and make me feel better when I'm stressed. Likewise, she knows that I will always be willing to drop everything and comfort her if she's upset. It's so reassuring to be able to call her up just to hear her voice or whenever I need to vent.

Autumn— I appreciate you endlessly, my dear. You're the best, thank you for being you. <3

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
