To My Best Friend's Future Husband

I hope you will always keep ice cream in the fridge, and will always hold her hair when she's had too much to drink.

To My Best Friend's Future Husband

To my best friend's future husband,

I am so thankful for you.

You must be truly spectacular, and she has to really, really love you. You have proven to her that you are not "just like all the rest," and that you love her even more than you love yourself. You must think she literally hung the moon.

Well, you're right. Technically she didn't hang the moon, but all the other awesome things within her ability, she has done. She is one of a kind, and I know she tells you all the time how lucky she is to have you, but you are the one who is pretty dang lucky to be the one who got her. 'Cause I can promise you there were many suitors after my girl who didn't make the cut. I know you have to be so proud of her, and for her to be your wife. I hope you will always let her know how proud of her that you are. I hope you will never let a day go by that you don't tell her how beautiful she is even when, — no, especially when — she hasn't put on a stitch of makeup all day or when she has to go up a pant size or two.

I hope you will always wipe her tears and hold her tight when things in life don't go her way or when hard times strike. I hope you will know her well enough to tell when she is lying when she says she's “just tired" or “fine," and she's not. I hope you will tell her it's OK to not be so strong all the time, and that she will feel comfortable enough with you to fall apart when she can't take it all anymore.

I hope you will never let her feel like she isn't enough or that she isn't everything you dreamed for, because I can guarantee you she's more than you ever dreamed of having. I hope you will always see that. I hope you will show her off every chance you get. I hope you never stop pushing her to be the best she can be, and I hope you will never let her put her dreams on the back burner.

I hope you will pray for her well-being, every single night and I hope you never fail to thank God for the woman He has given you every single night, too.

If she loves you, then I know I will too. I hope you will be everything she has ever prayed for... and more.

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.
