Why Your Girlfriends Are The Only Baes You Need This V-Day

Why Your Girlfriends Are The Only Baes You Need This V-Day

We're officially a month into 2016. Congratulations, you did it! January has come and gone, and here comes February full swing ahead. February, what a time to be alive. Who wouldn't want an endless supply of all things red, chocolates, roses, and corny Instagram posts about how much girls love their boyfriends.

And then there's me, lonely and -- alone. Every single year -- nothing ever changes. I've never been the relationship type so, naturally, when the big V-Day rolls around, I feel left out. Over the years, I've learned to be OK with it. Honestly, all I need in this life of sin, is me and my girlfriends.

1. They comfort you better than any boy ever will.

Bad week, messy day? No problem. She's only a phone call away and I can guarantee she'll arrive at your front door with cake, cookies, and other fattening foods that will go straight to your a**.

2. They get excited at the same corny crap that you do.

"Wanna go see that new movie, How To Be Single?"
Oh, my god -- yeah!"
Oh, my god -- I love you!"

3. They're accepting of your strange behaviors.

Nose picker? State champion burper? World class farter? No problem. Nothing that you can do at this stage of your friendship can scare her off (hopefully).

4. They deal with your reoccurring mental breakdowns.

I know I'm not the only one who talks to themselves sometimes when your best friend fails to text you back. That's OK, though, she'll read them all eventually.

5. They support the amount of wine you're about to consume.

Wine and chocolates -- all a single girl needs.

6. They're down to do weird, questionable things with you.

We all have that one friend we share a questionable relationship with. There's a fine line between close and too close.

7. Their hugs make the world go round.

Nothing is better than their shoulder when you need a good cry, except maybe a donut.

8. They're down to adventure with you.

Because what in life is better than a partner in crime?

9. They ride the struggle bus with you.

All for one and one for all, right?

10. They understand your weird, sarcastic sense of humor.

Your bond is unbreakable, nothing can come between you two.

11. They understand you better than you understand yourself.

They know you inside and out, all of your good and your bad, and they're still friends with you. Better give that girl some damn credit.

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.
