The Pro's Of Being In Love With A Marine

"Always faithful" has its perks.

The Pro's Of Being In Love With A Marine

Every Marine sweetheart knows of the suckage of the Corps, such as the painful long distance, the constant dropping of f-bombs, deployments, frequent changes in schedules and plans, the list goes on and on. Thankfully, there are some notable benefits to make up for at least some of the burdens.

The Uniforms

Who can argue with the fact that the Marines have the best uniforms of all the military? Woodlands, deserts, dress blues, oh my.


While it may be a pain to be miles away from your man, it’s always fun to have an excuse to pack up and go to Cali!

The Ball

Put on your dancing shoes and dust off that fabulous gown you rocked at your senior prom. The Corps Ball is a night to feel like royalty at his side while you both look your absolute best (and feel pretty great, too!).

New Friendships

No one understands better than other Marine sweethearts themselves. It’s easy to connect with girls from all over the country, and it’s actually really cool. The network is huge and you meet all kinds of women that feel the same pains you do.

Depending On Yourself

Nine times out of ten, your man can’t be there for you in your times of need. But you know exactly who will be: yourself. Being with a Marine forces you to mature faster than you’d think, and it allows you to learn to take care of yourself all on your own.

Loyalty, Commitment, Trust

Practically the holy trinity of military relationships. You quickly learn these values and keep them close to your heart. They not only strengthen your relationship, but you as well.


Sure, the goodbyes tear you apart… but the hellos are what piece you back together. These are the sweet moments that you constantly dream about and long for. They’re better than the movies.

His Love

He might be a part of the world’s premiere fighting force, but he sure does know how to treat a lady. With his gentlemanly courtesy, his sweet love, and his strong heart, he sweeps you off your feet like never before.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

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.
