11 Reasons Why Galentine's Day Is Better Than Valentine's Day

For those who will be single this upcoming Valentine's Day, you're probably feeling like this:

But even though you might feel that way, you may not have heard about the tradition of Galentine's Day! A concept introduced by Amy Poehler on "Parks and Recreation," it's a day devoted to celebrating women and our friendships in the best ways possible.

Here are 11 reasons why Galentine's Day is 100-times better than Valentine's Day every single time.

1. You don't have to worry about finding the perfect gift.

2. You can eat all the chocolate you'd like without caring how desperate it could look.

3. The only person you'd spend money on is you.

4. You get to treat yourself for two days (Galentine's Day and Valentine's Days).

5. No matter how much you eat, you can always count on your girlfriends to tell you you're still in shape.

6. You spend the whole day (or days) with your girls.

7. There's no expectations for how you're supposed to celebrate or any agenda whatsoever.

8. You get to watch all the frantic committed-relationship people run around trying to shop frantically last-minute and thank your stars you're not in their position.

9. You most definitely will not get dumped.

10. Just think of the innumerable action movies that you will get to watch on Netflix nonstop.

11. Just think about it, you can save all the money that you won't be spending on someone else this Valentine's Day, and you and your girls can all go on vacation for the weekend!

So even though there is still a chance that you will probably die alone, at least you do so with your chicas by your side, right?

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.
