And it is not always a bad thing.

I'm One Of Those 'Annoying' Girlfriends, And I'm Not Sorry
Clay Howard

To describe the word "annoying," well that is simple. In the dictionary, it is defined as "causing of irritation or annoyance."

But to your boyfriend, you being annoying is asking millions of questions, bugging him about the most ridiculous stuff, just simply being clingy or over giving your love. In my eyes, I honestly see nothing wrong with that unless you start to act a little crazy... for no reason at all.

And in some cases, ALL girls tend to be a bit crazy. It is in our nature. Well, sometimes...

Being known as the "annoying" girlfriend has its perks. It has its pros and cons of course. For the pros, being clingy is not necessarily a bad thing. I just want to be with my boyfriend at all times whenever I get the chance to. There is nothing wrong with spending all of your free time with your boyfriend and it irritates the crap out of me when girls ask me, "don't you have a life without your boyfriend? Do you have any other friends?"

Of course, I have friends that I hang out with but if my boyfriend is free, you best believe I am going to see him in a heartbeat.

I personally think, if I am giving and showing the amount of love I have for my boyfriend, is not bad at all. Guys SHOULD appreciate that. And most do. I don't care if he or anyone thinks that me wanting to hug him, constantly wanting to kiss his face, wanting to run my fingers through his hair, or just simply running my hand up and down on his arm, I don't care if anyone thinks it is annoying.

I love my boyfriend and I will try my best to show it in any way possible. I will always send him sweet, cute reminder messages even if I repeat myself to let him know how much he means to me and how much I care for him.

But seeing all of this as cons, well, I can see how being clingy and wanting to show my love can lead to wanting him to have space. Or constantly texting him can get annoying. I know most of us girls wants to talk to their boyfriends whenever we all have the chance to. Because you think about him before you go to sleep at night and when you first wake up in the morning.

You just. Can't. Help. It. Our minds work way differently then men's do.

I overread too far into messages or things he says to me. I know that will cause irritation. I don't like to do it but that is how my brain works. I know I can ask the most ridiculous, dumb questions even if I know the answer to it already. Sometimes I ask them so I can have something to talk to him about and sometimes i ask them so I can hear him say "because I love you." I know he loves me but I love, love, love to hear it. What can I say?

And sometimes I can be crazy and I will admit to it. I will assume things and question things. That is what I hate most about being the annoying girlfriend. I think and assume the worst of everything and I know I need to stop. But the thought of losing someone I care so deeply about and love so much, makes me want to cringe.

Yes, and yes, there are things I need to work on, such as assuming and questioning. But the best thing about it all is that...

He loves me for me. He loves me even if I'm an annoying girlfriend.

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.

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.
