As January comes to a close and Valentine's day comes closer, it may be smart to get a head start on the holiday. In my experience when it comes to thinking of new inventive ways to surprise people you love on Valentine's Day, it gets increasingly harder to avoid repeating gift ideas. So this year I intend to surprise my S.O. with a Valentine's Day catered to his love language!

If you're struggling with coming up with new ideas this year look no further. Here is a list of ways to spoil the people in your life based on their love language.

Quality Time

The classic gift for someone who loves quality time is to surprise them with a new movie and a night in. Spending time with someone you love watching their favorite movie never gets old. These people also tend to be more spontaneous so look up romantic date night spots around you. Perhaps a trip to your local botanical gardens for a walk, trying a cooking class together, or doing something bold like skydiving! Gifts for this type are new things for your S.O. to try with you like a new movie, a new game, or tickets to a new band or event etc.

Physical Touch

For the classic, a massage!

Whether your partner would prefer an intimate massage by the fire at home or a scheduled couples massage this always seems to make someone with a love language in physical touch happy! For people looking for more untraditional ways to spend Valentine's Day as a Physical Touch lover, try back painting!

It is intimate and fun to do with a partner. Gifts for this type include: new blankets, pillows, or comfy clothes!

Acts of Service

Acts of Service is pretty straight forward in what they like. For Valentine's Day complete a couple of things on their to-do list to take it off their plate or drive out of your way to get their favorite coffee. These people also love breakfast in bed or homemade things you make for them. Gift ideas for this type of love language include: homemade cards, gifts, or anything that highlights how special the occasion is.

Words of Affirmation

People who enjoy words love to be told how much you care. So love letters are a very simple way of accomplishing this. As well as poems or personalized lyrics/songs. Pouring your heart out to these types is what makes them the happiest. Gifts for these types include: letters, something as simple as notes on a bathroom mirror, poems, or detailed handwritten cards.

Receiving Gifts

Probably the easiest out of the languages for Valentine's Day is gifts. Flowers, teddy bears, and chocolates always hit home with these types. If this is too tired think about making flowers out of paper or choosing her favorite meal opposed to chocolates. Anything you make will also resonate with these people. Gifts for these types include: cards, chocolates, stuffed animals, flowers, pictures, or customized Etsy finds!

I hope this helped some of you, and Happy Valentine's shopping!

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.
