To My Boyfriend About To Graduate, I'm So Proud Of Everything You've Accomplished

I'm so proud of all that you've accomplished.

I'll do my best to not cry when I write this, but if you know me, you know I'll probably fail at that.

I get really sappy when I think about the fact that you'll be leaving me soon. Not in the way that our relationship is ending, but in the way that you're moving away because you're about to graduate. I'm selfish and I never want you to be more than five minutes away from me. I just have to keep telling myself that this is happening because of all of your accomplishments and how far you've come.

I'm really just so proud to know you. College is hard, and I know things haven't been easy, personally or academically. They haven't been easy for me either. But my time at this university has been so much better with you by my side, and I've truly cherished every minute of my time here with you.

From the moment we met, you've done nothing but better my life. You've helped me get my life back on track, you've become my best friend, and you've shown me what a truly healthy love feels like. You've been by my side as I figure out who I am and what I stand for, finding my voice and not being afraid of it. You've been my biggest fan and biggest supporter. I have always been able to count on you, and I know that even though you're moving away, that'll still never change.

I've loved seeing you grow. You used to be a lot less social than you are now, only truly showing who you are to people you've gotten to know well over time. You used to not really get too involved in too much, just as much as you had to. Now, you've really blossomed into a person that I hope you're proud of, because I'm proud of you. You aren't afraid to get involved, talk to people, and put yourself out there by doing things you definitely wouldn't have done in the past.

You used to be a lot more closed off. It was honestly a big deal that you even opened up to me and showed me who you are. Now, we tell each other absolutely everything and anything. I know parts of you that no one else ever has, and you know me better than I probably know myself. You're not afraid to let people in and let them love you anymore.

I've fallen head over heels for you. When you leave, it's going to really hurt. I've grown to be really spoiled being able to wake up next to you every morning, so much so that sleeping alone just doesn't feel right. But, I know that we'll be reunited not too far from now. When I graduate, we'll be right back where we were, side by side, and I'll never have to let you go.

The time I've spent with you here in college has been the best time of my life. I've seen you grow, I've seen you achieve. You may not really feel that you've accomplished so much, but when you reflect over all four years you've spent here, you'll see what I mean. I've been so lucky to be by your side during what's dubbed the "best years of your life," and because of you, they definitely have been my best years.

I'm so, so proud of you, and I can't wait to cheer you on as you walk across that stage. Just ignore me if I start crying.

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.

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.
