I Asked My S.O. These 20 Questions About Me, And He Suprised Me

An edition of me torturing my boyfriend with "how well do you know me?" questions.

two people

My boyfriend and I have been together for 10 months now, and just had our anniversary on the 25th! We actually both went to the same high school but had never talked to each other until our first day of college at UIUC. It turns out that we had a TON of similar interests and everything just sparked from there.

What is really funny to me is that I was not expecting to date so early into college, and was not intending at all to date my first semester. I guess God had other plans for me.

And since quarantine started, we've had A LOT of time to talk...so I'm expecting him to ace most to all of these questions.

1. What's my favorite food?



2. What's one food I hate?



3. What's my favorite restaurant?

"Olive Garden, wait Sushi Station?"


Personal Note: Olive Gaden is mouthwatering and I'll take sushi literally any day, but Potbelly is where my heart is.

4. What's one cause I really care about?

"Dream Riders, the horse place, right?"


5. Where was I born?

"Kansas, wait Illinois?" *laughs nervously* "Wait didn't you say that your mom had the same doctor birth you and your sister? So around here???"


6. Who is my absolute best friend?

"Wait....me?" *hee hee smiles*


7. What's my favorite thing about you?

"Like you say a lot when I ask you, you always say how kind I am. You are always surprised by it."


8. What is my dream job?

"National Geographic Photographer, Writer, uhhhh nature news person."


9. What's my favorite color?

"Red." *gets it right on the dot*


10. What's one thing I'm really bad at?

"Spelling, which is pretty ironic for a writer. I hope this doesn't make you lose all your credibility hahhah"

Sadly, Right/Wrong

11. What's one thing I'm really good at?

*awkward silence* "Being my girlfriend?"

Right/Wrong (I would hope so lol)

12. What would you say is my greatest weakness?

"Confidence or indecisiveness."


13. What would you say is my greatest strength?



14. Who am I closest to in my family?

"Your sister, is that right?"


15. How did I get my name?

"Your Dad didn't like the certain Italian name, I forgot.... and then your great aunt said 'Why didn't you name her (uhh Adriana??)?' And he said that he liked Erin instead."

Right/Wrong -> Ehhh kind of right lol, I'll give it to him.

Personal Note: It was Giana.

16. Who is my role model?

"Jane Goodall? The monkey, chimpanzee safari lady who did a lot of wildlife stuff?"


Personal Note: My uncle

17. What is my love language?

"You only speak English, so English. Or backscratches??" *I promptly explain the question to him* "Ohhhh. Physical touch and quality time. You're more about spending time with me and physical connection. You like gifts and think they are nice, but they are not necessary to you."


18. What is my biggest regret?

"Not doing more in high school."


19. What is my greatest fear?

"Not being prepared, for classes, for school, for life."


20. What is my biggest insecurity?

"Intelligence. You compare yourself to a lot of your peers and you feel that you are lackluster in that department. But intelligence does not mean being good at what your peers are doing, but what you like and want to do."


Score: 16/20

I guess my S.O. knows me better than I thought! Even though he missed some of the more simple questions, he nailed the complicated ones almost better than I could myself. It is such a comforting feeling and a new experience for me to share so much of my life with another person, and I am so glad that I get to do it with him. This game has opened my eyes to how much I have shared my passions, regrets, and insecurities with him over the months we have been together, and now I feel myself falling a little deeper in love.

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.
