Sometimes I Really Hate How Cell Phones Have Changed Relationships

Our society and culture are so centered around technology and I have to say it isn't always for the best. With the huge rise in technology and cell phones, it has completely destroyed relationships. There is so much that is not genuine anymore and it is hurting relationships. Everything from texting to dating apps, cell phones have caused there to be less and less put into relationships.

People used to have to actually talk to each other face to face and if they wanted to ask someone on a date they did it in person. There were so many things that were fantastic about the way that dating used to be. I'm a hopeless romantic, so I'm a little biased there as well, but all I'm saying is a guy should actually take a girl out on real dates and get to know here. So often conversations and relationships form through text messages and things can be misconstrued or even the relationship itself can be very fragile and when it ends it doesn't seem to be a surprise.

On top of that, dating apps and online dating have brought a whole other mess to the dating platform. There are so many people who get cat-fished (someone pretending to be someone else) or people who have to watch out, it can make anything online pretty scary. People have to be careful of who they go on dates with that they meet online because they never know who they're really meeting.

With the introduction of technology and cell phones, dating has become something that is so quick. You can get to know someone in a week through text and then just like that you're dating. People chat and then plan a date, but sometimes the quickness of a relationship formed through technology can be its downfall. There is just something so sweet and special about really taking the time to get to know someone. Our grandparents and parents put so much time and effort into their relationships and that is something that is definitely admirable.

I will say though, that there are so benefits to the introduction of cell phones into relationships. Cell Phones have allowed for more communication and easier communication to occur. Long distance relationships definitely benefit from cell phones, as well as those who are wanting to branch out from the normal people they know. There can be some great benefits with cell phones in relationships and those benefits are amazing. Technology can bring easier communication and allows for people to make connections that they might not have made otherwise. Even while writing this, I had a whole conversation with my coworker, let's call him Curtis, about the role of cell phones in relationships and there were pros and cons to each side looked at.

In the end, relationships are going to constantly be growing and evolving as our society and culture changes. Yet no matter how it changes and what pros and cons come out of that, there will always be something special about the way relationships used to be without cell phones.

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.

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.
