To The Next Person That Loves Me

Falling in love can be scary, everyone is different, but with the right person, it can be a wonderful adventure.

Every person has some baggage that they carry around with them that can effect how they interact with others. I feel like in 2016, the main one is trust issues. Most people are terrified of commitment, and if you're not, you are terrified of being left by someone that is. Relationships are a strange thing anymore, and that's why I want to write this. Loving me can be a challenge, it's something I'm struggling doing even today and I feel like in order to love me, you have to understand that I am going to require a lot from you. That's why I'm making this list of how to be what I need.

1. You have to love the shows I do.

Or you have to at least be willing to sitthrough and pretend like you are, and of course I will do the same for you. Netflix and chill? more like Netflix and lost my chill over the new murder in Scream Queens.

2. You have to laugh at my horrible jokes.

Listen- I know I'm not funny, but humor me and tell me it's cute when I make the worst joke ever and just laugh like I actually am funny.

3. You have to understand my reservations.

I've been hurt and walked out on, and I find it hard to trust someone new. I may open up easily, but I may shy away when things look hard. Please don't just give up.

4. You have to be willing to show me off.

Yes, I will embarrass you at times, but if you're embarrassed to be seen with me, then we have a problem. Show me off. Introduce me to your friends. Take me out.

5. Be open.

If something is wrong, just talk to me. I promise, it will save you from a bigger argument. I will try to be what you need but you have to tell me what that is first.

6. Take me dancing.

Yes, I'm horrible at it, but I can promise you that it will be enjoyable and we both won't be able to stop smiling.

7. Let me pay.

Maybe not every single time, but seriously, just let me treat you.

8. Accept me for the weird things I get excited about.

Yes, I get excited easily and I will be overly dramatic about it, please just let me be and think it's cute that I'm so happy.

9. My friends are the most important thing to me.

You don't have to love my best friends, but you do have to be nice to them. They mean more to me than anything so be kind and you'll be around for awhile. I'll do the same with yours, too.

10. Accept my crying.

I will cry. I will cry a lot. Some will be justified, some won't be. Just please be there for me when I need you to wipe the tears.

11. Sing to me.

I honestly don't care how you sound, I love listening to music and having a voice echoing my favorite songs out loud. And I would never judge you for how you sound.

12. Finally, pray with me.

Pray for a healthy relationship, a possible future, a strong connection, and just ask me how you can be continually praying for me. My relationship with God is the most important one to me and I need you to accept that.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
