You Are Worth It!

There are worse things in life, than being single on Valentine's Day.

You Are Worth It!
Growing Self

To some people Valentine's Day is the best day of the year, but to other people it is the most dreaded day of the year. I fall in the latter category. Not only do I dread the day itself, but the whole month of February.

I blame it on how much emphasis today's society puts on Valentine's Day. If you walk into a major department store the day after Christmas, they are already planning for Valentine's Day. Women start dropping hints on December 26th to their significant others on what they can get them. But to us single girls, it starts our couple months of dreading social media posts.

So for all you single girls out there, this one is for you! I know it is hard (and you are probably going to want to throw up at some point during the day), so I made a list of some things to do to help you get through the day.

  • BREATHE. First and foremost, take a deep breath. It is going to be okay, and tomorrow is just another normal day. Don’t be jealous of the girl that only gets flowers on Valentine’s Day. Be jealous of the girl who gets them on random days throughout the year.
  • Have a glass of Wine. Or Jack. Or Tequila. Something alcoholic. Not enough to make you pass out drunk, just enough to chill you out.
  • Take a Hot Bath. You know, it is good to pamper yourself. Take a bath, and have some quiet minutes to yourself. You might even incorporate the point above in this situation.
  • Fix your Favorite Meal or Get Take Out. You know that feeling after you eat your favorite meal? How happy that makes you. Do that.
  • Work Out. Nothing gets your mind off the world around you as working out with music jamming does.
  • Watch a Movie. Preferably, a horror or action movie with lots of killing and unhappy people! Don’t give in to those feelings and watch a sappy romantic movie.
  • KEEP YOUR HEAD UP! Just because it isn’t your favorite day, and you are probably doubting yourself, that doesn’t mean you are not good enough/ pretty enough/ skinny enough/ smart enough for a Valentine. Your person will come one day, and they will love YOU! So hold your head high beautiful girl, put a smile on your face, and take each step with purpose cause you are WORTH IT!

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.
