He may be handsome, but he's more than that.

I could go on and on about the reasons I knew my boyfriend was the one, but they pale in comparison to this one reason.

To put this into context, relationships aren't always pretty. On top of that, I can be a little dramatic at times. With all that being said, the reason I knew my boyfriend was the one is simply that he knows how to deal with me.

I'll be honest, I'm a stereotypical girl. I randomly get moody, and sometimes it's not as random because code red is coming. My boyfriend gets a front-row seat to this moodiness.

When he can start feeling the attitude change through text messages he calls me out right away. If I don't particularly change my attitude right away, he may start to get moody as well. It doesn't last too long because we realize that we love each other and expressing anything but love towards one another is pointless. If this moodiness occurs while in person, he usually will make me laugh somehow, which totally cuts my dramatic performance short.

I am a very anxious person at times. If I don't have anything to be anxious about at the moment, I will be anxious about something that's not going to happen for another 5 to 10 years.

I will express these anxieties to my boyfriend by, you guessed it, being dramatic. Just like with everything else I do, he knows how to deal with it. He knows exactly what to say to calm me down. Not everybody understands how big of a deal that is, but it's a big deal.

Sometimes people tend to just walk out of situations like that, but if they choose to stay it really means something.

Sometimes he really doesn't know why I'm having an episode, sometimes I don't even know. It's just the fact that he is willing to wait for me to calm down that's really amazing. He doesn't just give up on me. A lot of girls struggle with anxiety, jealousy, and trust issues. The good news is there is someone for everyone. If you're someone who worries about messing up a relationship because of all these traits you have, don't worry.

One day someone is going to love you through all your ups and downs, take my word for it. Your imperfections won't matter anymore.

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.
