To The Man I Get To Marry, Please Rescue Me Soon

Dear Man I Get To Marry,

How are you? I'm pretty lousy these days.

What is it with the male species being so dumb during this life stage? I don't understand, but I guess I can get over it. Sometimes I just wish I could fast forward ten years into the future where we're together on a Saturday morning, making waffles and dancing to the playlist I made when I was nineteen. That's what I imagine having a husband is like, but I could be wrong. I know it's much more than that but I like being native about this kind of thing since I've barely had a boyfriend.

I think this is why I'm having such a hard time believing love will ever exist for a person like me. I still believe in having a soulmate though which seems counterproductive but that's my brain for ya!

I think like anyone, I have my share of questions for you.

How do we meet? At college during move in day or during a casual swipe on Bumble? How long do we date? I mean, my parents dated for 2 weeks then got engaged and have been married for 24 years now so it probably doesn't matter. Where do we live? All these things I think about a lot. I think it's fun to have different scenarios of who I marry. But I think my biggest question is, have we already met? I've met lots of guys for a brief moment in time I thought I would marry but that's just how the female brain works I guess. I'll admit, this has broken my heart on many different occasions due to jumping the gun thinking I've met 'my person.' But to be fair, everyone shoves the idea that you meet your spouse in your first years in college, so it's fair for me to question it every time a guy talks to me.

Whoever you may be, here's what you should know about me as an almost twenty-something year old.

I watch far too much Hulu and laugh hysterically at Bob's Burgers when I'm alone. In the summer, Marshmallow cokes replace the cold brew coffee part of my bloodstream. My music taste is all over the place and that's quite the skill to have. I'm a HUGE nerd so Marvel movies are in our future. I'm driven and am not threatened by men so don't be threatened by me. When I fall in love, I love with all my being because you deserve that.

I hope we meet very soon so you can rescue me.

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.
