What It's Like Having A Boyfriend At A Different College

It's not long distance but it is.

What It's Like Having A Boyfriend At A Different College
Personal Photo

If you checked my Instagram right now, you would find that my most recent post is just about my boyfriend. All of the pictures are from Snapchat screenshots which I take of him almost- if not every single day. Today, I took 2 screenshots of Daniel, one of him sitting in car and then the second of him doing his homework.

A few days ago, he had the cheesy smile he makes and a white shirt that was captioned "Thinking of you my love." I love my small photo collection of all the cute Daniel Snap moments we have had. I'm in love with his smile and his way of saying things, especially when we start to Snap each other back and forth and they start to get funny.

On the days I wish he were here, I look through those photos and think about if I were the one to have taken them. What if I were the one holding the camera? Instead of the caption being in his point of view, it would be in mine. It would say something along the lines of "AWE, he was thinking of me and smiled!!" Instead of laughing at each other's silly faces on Snap, we would be laughing at them sitting on my bed and he would be trying to help me study for biology, but then get lost himself.

Unfortunately, fate said no on this one. Rather, it said "You guys are going to be great at this whole distance thing and if you aren't, well then too bad." Every weekend since I graduated, we have seen each other every weekend. I would travel the hour and a half to visit him or he would drive the hour and a half to visit me. We had the system worked out very well, and it works great. Until something comes up, or one of us has something planned that weekend instead or... you get the point.

Distance is hard! It's frustrating, too. My parents swear I love driving because I have driven so much since June that I'm not surprised that I need my brakes replaced, or I will eventually need an oil change... again. Right now to see my boyfriend, it is an hour and 31 minutes to get to Selinsgrove where my boyfriend go to college. Let me tell you, it's a pretty drive, but also a pretty long drive.

The great thing is that, he makes it all worth the driving and the long weeks and the needing new brakes. He makes having to pay to have a car at college, and also pay insurance on a car I use only twice a week all worth it. I love it when I go there with his room with no AC and I love when he comes here and we lay in my freezing cold room. It makes the time we do spend together the greatest ever because we are there together and while the time is limited, it's awesome to be there.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,

After packing two oversized suitcases and two carryons with all the boho chic clothes I thought I needed to travel across the country for my dream internship, I quickly realized that although I may look like I belong out in the entertainment capital of the world there was a lot more to it than Free People dresses and fanny packs.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,
September: Los Angeles

Ever since I was younger I dreamed of moving out to California. There was something so amusing about being in the hub of it all that bursts with passion and artistry wherever you look. After a trip to LA when I was a sophomore in high school for dance, I fell even more in love with this utopia of a city and from that moment on, Los Angeles was that light at the end of the tunnel.

The Madness of March Madness

Paying students is not the fundamental problem.


It is March and with it comes madness, and with that madness comes the exhausting debate on whether or not college athletes should get paid.

Things To Do In Austin Over Spring Break

From swimming holes to SXSW, I got you covered.

Spi Abroad

With spring break quickly approaching in the next couple of weeks for high school and college students, most will be heading home to spend time with family and friends, while others will be going to explore new places such as the beach or someplace new to go. Austin has been ranked in numerous lists of best cities to visit and move to in the U.S, but having been born in raised in Austin, I can tell you everything there is to do.

With spring break around the corner, it's time to look at some ground rules. We are used to seeing insane partying in Panama City Beach and other Florida locations. We have an image in our minds of what the perfect Spring Break is as depicted in countless movies. We are ready to party hard. With that in mind ... we all wanna make it back alive to continue on our path of this wonderful journey for a college education.


1. Rally. Do you really want a hangover at 8 p.m.? I don't think so.

2. Buy souvenirs. I know you want a new tank top to wear every day. 

3. Spend most of your hours on the beach. You don't want to come back from Spring Break with no color. Being the pale friend is no fun.

4. Take a ton of pictures. These will help you remember the week for years to come.

5. Remember to have #NOREGRETS. What happens on Spring Break, stays on Spring Break. (The Vegas Rule.)


1. Don't do anything in public that you wouldn't want your mother seeing a picture of. Your friends will take pictures, I promise. You don't want this as wedding blackmail years later.

2. Don't get sick in public. If you don't feel good, go back to your hotel.

3. Don't leave any friends behind. They most likely won't be comfortable with the area. They may not even speak the native language.

4. Don't get caught. Take this whichever way you want.

5. Don't break the 'Vegas Rule'. I don't care if it is 10 years down the line.
