Looking back on 2 years with my favorite guy

A Letter To My Boyfriend On Our 2nd Anniversary
Victoria Piti

Dear Alex,

I can't believe we’ve been together for two years! I feel like we’ve been together much longer, yet sometimes I catch us acting like we’re newly dating because of how we goof around with each other. Meeting you, I had no idea what an impact you would have in my life. We only knew each other around 3 weeks before we started dating, but the connection we had was instant so it felt like we’d known each other forever. I'm thankful that my hall neighbor of two years and future roommate, Julie, introduced us to one another. Julie is one of our best friends so I think because our relationship happened because of her, it's a little more special.

I remember when we met we shook hands and telling you later I hated handshakes because I was weirdly insecure about mine. Instead of accepting it you helped me improve my handshake and now I'm not afraid of them anymore. It's a little thing, but that was one of the first instances of you helping me improve as a person.

I remember our first date, you took me to my favorite coffee shop and kissed me for the first time outside of it. I had not kissed anyone in years, so I apologize for forgetting how to. With every day going forward we would talk on the phone or FaceTime, getting to know each other more. I saw myself becoming happier every day because of you. You made me laugh and supported me when I had a tough day at school. To this day, you still do those things, but having it happen in the beginning showed me you were a keeper. Since then, you've never failed to call me beautiful every day, tell me you love me every day.

When I realized I was in love with you, it was the best feeling in the world. I knew I could trust you and I knew my love for you was true. The best feeling truly may have been when you told me you loved me for the first time. Now, two years later, I still feel that love more and more each day. You've brought me such happiness, some that came in the form of friends. My main friend group is you and four others (including Julie), the ones you introduced me to right away once we began dating. That meant a lot to me because it meant you wanted me to be friends with your friends. Now they're my closest friends. You wanted me to be a part of your world completely and I felt so loved. Thank you for bringing me into the group, they have also changed my life for the better.

I look back on all the memories we’ve made together, like going to Rhode Island and Boston the last two summers. It was so exciting to go away together for the first time, something I'll always cherish. I cherish every day with you because every day you make me feel loved.

Thank you, Alex, for everything these past couple years. Every marvel movie date, mini road trips to hockey games, and everything in between was made better by you. We laugh over inside jokes or references from shows, making everything so personal between us. You've treated me right every day and I know every day that you love me. You do so much for me and have been with me through it all. I don't know where I'd be without you and I am grateful for you every day. Thank you for sticking by me these two years and here's to many more. I love you.

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.
