5 *Flashing Bright Red* Signs That Prove You Are Most Definitely In A Toxic Relationship

Relationships can be tricky, and they can definitely change over time. When you first start dating someone, everything seems great, and hopefully, it stays that way. But, not always. Sometimes, relationships can turn toxic, and it's at that point that you may want to reevaluate whether or not you still want to be with that person. Here are five warning signs that are often strong indicators of a toxic relationship.

1. Your Significant Other Has Hired A Hitman To Take You Out

Unfortunately, if it seems like your significant other has hired a contract killer to murder you, then it may be time to reconsider your relationship. Maybe a strange man has been following you and is planning how best to take you out without anyone noticing, or maybe you noticed something peculiar on your bank statement involving a payment to an organized crime family. Either way, the moment that a hitman gets involved, your relationship probably cannot be saved.

2. Your Significant Other Keeps Trying To Run You Over With Their Car

Maybe this doesn't seem like a sign to you, but if whenever you two leave the house, your significant other asks you to grab the newspaper at the end of the driveway, then violently gets in his or her car and starts speeding directly toward you at a high speed, toxicity may be in the air. Healthy relationships generally don't consist of repeated efforts by one person to run their partner over with their car. You don't have to think so if you don't want to, but it's something to think about.

3. Your Significant Other Is Trying To Steal All Money From Your Bank Account

If your precious boyfriend or girlfriend has suddenly taken an intense interest in your bank information, it may be time to look at other relationship options, and probably change your online banking password. If they repeatedly keep asking for things like your account number or password, they may be trying to steal all of your money in an effort to move to an exotic foreign country with their new lover while also leaving you penniless. It's happened before, and it can really only mean one thing. Your relationship is, for lack of a better word, toxic.

4. Your Significant Other Keeps Taking Part In Satanic Rituals

Most people would agree that a sudden interest in Satanic rituals is another indicator of a toxic relationship. If you start finding random animals around your house, such as pigs, goats, or rabbits, then discover that your significant other has been slaughtering the poor things and then offering them up as bloody sacrifices to the Prince of Darkness, well, then you may need to take some time to really think things through.

5. Your Significant Other Keeps Chasing You Around With A Knife

This is another great way to tell whether your relationship is worth investing any more time into. If you get home from work and your significant other starts madly chasing you around the house with a knife while screaming about how you two will be together forever, things may already be over. The second that calm nights watching Netflix turn into horrifying pursuits that make you fear for your life, it may be too late for you two.

When it comes down to it, these signs can be a great indicator that, well, your relationship may not be as healthy as it once was. If you only notice one or two of these signs, then maybe things can still be salvaged. I mean, an occasional attempt to brutally stab you to death may not seem like a big deal, and maybe it isn't. But when you start to notice the majority of these signs occurring, and when they start to appear more and more often, then your relationship is likely toxic, and it may be time to really consider whether staying together is the best thing for both of you in the long run. But then again, good luck breaking up with someone who has already been trying to kill you.

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.

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.
