Rachel Should Have Never Gotten Off Of The Plane, Bottom Line

Rachel not going to Paris was the biggest mistake ever.

Rachel Should Have Never Gotten Off Of The Plane, Bottom Line

So I just finished watching Friends for the hundredth time and I am just going to say it... RACHEL SHOULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN OFF THE PLANE!

First, let me just start by saying that Ross was by no means good enough for Rachel. HE held her back in so many ways.

He asked her to give up her dream of going to the fashion center of the world to be with him. Any man or woman that truly loves you would never ask you to give up your dreams for them!

Second, Ross is a passive man (and there is nothing wrong with that) but he just isn't right for Rachel.

Rachel is a strong powerhouse of a woman. She managed to grow from being a daddy's girl, reliant on someone else's money, who got her first job at a coffee house and worked hard to get a job at Bloomingdale's and Ralph Lauren to an amazing job in Paris.

If Ross had truly loved Rachel, he would have looked for jobs himself and HE would have moved to Paris. You can study dinosaurs anywhere. Better yet, being in Europe Ross would have been even closer to dig sites in Africa and Asia.

Third, let's not forget that Ross cheated on Rachel! I don't agree with all this "we were on a break" crap because a break is not a breakup! Ross was angry at Rachel for once again working on herself and forwarding her career. Not everyone gets a job as a professor and is successful right away.

We Were On A Break

This was Rachel's first experience working and trying to establish herself as a professional. Ross couldn't understand that!

He needed Rachel to spend all her time with him and not focus on building up herself! He was mad about that and he CHEATED on her.

From that moment on the whole I love him, I hate him, story line just shouldn't have happened.

Needless to say, I have very strong feelings about this. Rachel needed to stick to her guns and do what was best for her.

Ross overwhelmed her in an airport and she fell for it. Who knows, three weeks later she might have woken up, realized her mistake and wouldn't have been able to do anything about it.

We will never know... that is until our prayers are finally answered and we get a Friends reunion! One can only hope!

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.

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.
