Dear Diary, I'm Quarantined With My Boyfriend And I Ask Him Every 5 Seconds If He Still Loves Me
Bobbie Hall

As a typical clingy girlfriend, I get nervous when I feel like something is going wrong in the relationship.

And when I get nervous, I check in to make sure I haven't made my man fall out of love with me. (Which now that I think about it, asking so often could probably do just that, but oh well). So, now that we're spending so much time together, SO MUCH CAN GO WRONG. We've been together in his apartment for almost three weeks now and are planning to be for at least another week. On top of that, it's my time of the month.

As nervous as the past few weeks might have made me at times, it's actually been really good.

We have gotten a lot of time to just hang out and talk to each other. I created a makeshift spa night where we discovered that his blackheads did not want to budge. We bought a new switch game that we could play together. We took a nap together on the couch at 7 p.m. We also get to finally binge watch TV shows together, something we've never really been able to do because I would be too impatient and keep watching it alone. He's also gotten to experience how dangerous I am when given free-range at a grocery store. But he also found out that lots of good food comes out of that.

Now with my period, he got to experience every one of my mood swings.

Last night I laughed and cried back and forth for 15 minutes and he had no idea what to do, but he did his best. And afterward, he told me he still loved me (because I asked again, whoops).

We, in a way, get a first-hand experience of what it might look like if we move in together in the next few years. I cook almost every dinner, but I ask him to help sometimes. He does all the dishes, but when he's not scrubbing hard enough, I step in. He drives me crazy with how much video games he plays and I drive him crazy with the mess I leave everywhere I go.

It's been a really difficult time for both of us, away from family, friends, and our typical lives, but it hasn't been all bad.

And, yes, I do still ask him every five seconds if he still loves me.

P.S. Ian, do you still love me? Just checking...

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.

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.
