Once You Date A Maine Girl, You’ll Never Settle Again

Nevah, evah again!

Once You Date A Maine Girl, You’ll Never Settle Again
Summer Emery

As a guy who grew up on the best coast in the world, I was pretty spoiled as a young Mainer. Because of my home, I was able to witness fantastic ocean scenery, see magnificent mountain landscapes, and dine on the nation’s best seafood.

However, any flatlander in July could tell you that. Sometimes I think we Mainers take our beloved nature, cuisine, and way of life for granted.

We’ll settle for a day’s old pint of blueberry’s as opposed to a fresh one if need be.

We’ll settle for Red Lobster when we really want Red’s Eats.

We’ll settle for Jimmy Garropolo even when we want Tom Brady.

But there is something for which we should never settle: dating a girl who isn’t a Mainer.

You see, once you date a Maine girl, you’ll never want to settle again.

Partly because she as amazing as the Fryeburg Fair, and partly because she’ll send you right of Dragon’s Descent if you do settle.

As my life’s second decade closes, I’ve realized a few things about this topic. It’s not as if there’s anything wrong with girls from Ohio, California, or even New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Rather it’s because these Maine girls are often better than a summer day with no Route 1 traffic.

A Maine girl will understand if you bring her to a seafood restaurant over Applebee’s. (At least she should).

A Maine girl will be willing to go hiking at Baxter or Acadia, even if it means forgoing a shopping trip elsewhere.

A Maine girl will know that your fashion sense often consists of either Carhart, Grunden’s, L.L. Bean, or New England sports apparel.

A Maine girl will realize that a drive-in movie trip to Bridgton or Skowhegan is better than a cinema.

A Maine girl will get why you chose to avoid the Turnpike on a Friday afternoon; and why you got frustrated with that Mass’ driver.

A Maine girl will be down for Big G’s over Subway and Dunkin’ over Starbucks, any day of the week.

A Maine girl will find just as much charm in a lighthouse or beach date as she would in a city date.

A Maine girl will avoid Lewiston just as much as you do.

A Maine girl will not get jealous if you talk about Isaiah Thomas, Mookie Betts, or Tom Brady all the way through suppah.

A Maine girl will do all these things, but most importantly;

A Maine girl will steal your heart.

So fellas back home and across the nation, if you meet a girl and she says she’s from Portland, pray that she means Portland, Maine.

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.
