Love Is A Coin Toss

Maybe falling in love can help one learn so much more too.

Love Is A Coin Toss
Jennifer Enriquez

As much as I hate to break it to you all, I never fell in love.

All of my friends can tell you that I am a hopeless romantic. I would get emotional and happy for the tiniest love action that someone would do for another person. I would squeal, ridiculously say "Awwwwwwwww" and always ask for the details and not just a general storyline. Sorry, but as an English major now, I adoreeeeeee the storyline.

However, as much as I hear from all my friends talking about their relationships (some starting, others ending), I sometimes think to myself how would I be if I was in love?

First off, I can tell you, "love" for me is more than love. It's an unbearable feeling that sometimes you want to hug it, grasp for it, consume it, or sometimes it can wickedly blindfold you and shatter you. You are literally in a coin toss with love.

I am a reserved kind of person. I enjoy my solitude. I had never thought of this question before in my entire life. Fine, most of you would say, Well, Jen, you're only young. You still have not experienced true love. Yes, I know, but sometimes I want that feeling that all these corny couples around me feel. I'm in no rush.

I would not call myself a loner. I enjoy long conversations, having tea, hitting the Broadway streets, walks in the park, going to museums, and just learning more every day as much as I can. I'm very into the whole concept of reading romance, but I can go into mystery, philosophical, crime, and very much more. If you can recommend me a book to read, I give you my word that I will read it.

The concept of love has always been a mystery to me. The music helps me to understand it when I have questions. I'm not talking about music if today, I'm talking about Bonnie Tyler, Foreigner, Air Supply, Chicago, and the rest of them! And the movies! Well, I can give you a bunch that for me portrays true love: Forrest Gump, Amelie, Pride and Prejudice, Frankie and Johnny, One Day, 500 Days of Summer, Casablanca, etc..

I always say to myself, when the time is right, love will come. Why go out and search for it? Let the universe do its own thing. Love will come when the time is right. But if I fall in love, oh my friends, I already know I will be lost in the person's arms, swinging back and forth, creating our story. It is hard to say how would I act, but you will be the first to know.

As the days go by, my life has taken its tolls in good and bad times, but to have that little romance is just an illusion for now. Who knows what could happen in the future. I only hope for the best.

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.

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.
