A Letter To My Long Distance Boyfriend

I miss you and I can't wait to be back in your arms.

A Letter To My Long Distance Boyfriend

My Love,

I know this whole long distance relationship is hard, but I also know we can do it. I know every day is one day closer to the next time I'll see you but it's hard to wait. I hate being without you for weeks or months at a time. I hate not being by your side. But I love being your girlfriend and I know we can make it work because love is greater than distance.

Even though I don't get to see you in person every day, at least, I get to talk to you. Whether it be via text, a phone call, or a video chat. Video chat is my favorite way to communicate because I get to hear your voice and see your face, but it's still not the same. But it's definitely better than nothing. And for now, I guess that's okay.

I love how we can stay up all night talking over video chat about random things or stupid drama in our lives. We play games and make memories even though we're hundreds of miles apart. We can talk for hours and hours and never run out of things to talk about. That's one thing I love about you.

Since I don't get to see you every day, it makes the times I do see you so much better. I look forward to seeing you and cherish the time we have together. If we saw each other each and every day, the time we spent together wouldn't be as special. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see you every day, but since I don't, the times I do get to see you and be in your arms are the best days of my life.

Neither of us wants to do this distance thing forever. But I know that if we can get through it now, we will never have to do it again. These four years may be tough, but after that, we won't have to be apart for these amounts of time again. We have summer and winter breaks when we'll get to see each other for the longest periods of time. Even though they're not great, they're better than nothing.

I love you. I wouldn't trade you or our relationship for the world. I love everything about you. There is nothing negative I can say because you are the best thing that has ever happened to me. You're the sweetest, most caring guy I've ever had the pleasure of dating and I'm so lucky to call you mine.

I've been in a couple of long distance relationships and didn't think they were too difficult. However, doing this with you is so difficult because I just want to spend every moment with you. In the past, I could do it because it was really the only type of relationship I had known and the distance wasn't as bad. Now, we're really far apart and I love you too much to be without you.

Thank you for being you. You've changed my life and I can't wait to see you in a few weeks. I love you.

Your 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.

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.
