My heart beats faster whenever you’re around. I get lost in those big brown eyes of yours and get all tongue-tied. It’s as if the world stopped and the only two people left are him and I. We got that love that no one can compare. It’s the love that people dream of having at least once in a lifetime You have the patience to stand by my side, on the good and bad days.

As Marilyn Monroe once said, if you can’t love me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best. You embrace my flaws and guard my insecurities. You uplift me every morning and caress my cheek before I fall into slumber.

My heart yearns for your body to hold me tight, as your body perfectly sculpts into mine.

It yearns for your rough hands to run along the side of my inner thigh. I always try my hardest to remember this exact feeling because if things ever went left, this memory of us will forever remain.

To my lover, I’ll never lie to you. Our souls are intertwined. We are like two flames, moving on our own rhythm. I am able to feed off the energy you produce. So there is never a dull moment that is spent with you.

The memories of us will become stories we tell our children. I’ll start off by telling them about how we used to sit on rooftops just talking about anything and everything until the sun comes up. I’ll tell them how you treated me like a queen because our children, one day, they will date. And when that day comes, they will need to know how they should be treated and how to treat someone they’re having relations with as well.

To my lover, I am glad that I have finally found you. I have had my more than fair shares of heartbreaks. But I do believe that everything happens for a reason... Everything you’ve endured, the trials and tribulations had a purpose. It honestly shapes you to become the best version of yourself.

I no longer feel butterflies when you enter a room. Instead, my heart rate becomes slower as a sense of comfortability. The spontaneous kisses we had will turn into “see you after work” kisses. The highlight of our day will be still be waking up to seeing one another in the morning and going to sleep together. Our legs that were once intermingled with one another, so much you couldn’t tell where it began or ended, no longer into existence. We sleep on opposite sides but amongst your deepest slumber, you pull me closer to you, as if my body brings you peace. These are the moments that I savor. The small things.

To my lover, our love is special.The bond we have will bend but never break. We are in this for the long run.

I am yours and you are mine.

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
