I'm Single And Love Valentine's Day

Why should Valentine's Day be exclusively for couples?

I'm super single and you know what? Valentine's Day is my 3rd favorite holiday (don't ask me what my favorite holiday is, because people tend to judge) (okay, fine, it's Halloween) (my 2nd favorite is Christmas). Anyway, I'm proud to be the weird single girl that loves Valentine's Day more than most couples.

Valentine's Day is an excuse for me to treat myself. I've been getting myself a gift for Valentine's ever since I can remember. It's usually food. Sometimes I'll go all out and get myself a cute stuffed animal or something, but it's almost always food. This year I got myself chocolate covered strawberries. I'm so excited for them to be delivered on February 10th (it was an extra charge to have them delivered closer to Valentine's Day and I'm broke).

It also helps that I'm a romantic. I love, love. I love the thought of love, anyway. Not sure how I feel about the participation part. Being in love is hard. I'd rather watch from afar and live through other people's experiences. Which Valentine's Day is the perfect time to creep on other's relationships.

Lastly, being single on Valentine's is the best because you don't have to worry about buying anything for anyone. Birthdays you have to get the birthday person a gift and Christmas gifts for family and friends are a thing. Being in a relationship on Valentine's means you have an obligation to do something nice for your significant other. If your single, you don't have to worry about a thing.

I wish you all (single and couples) a Happy Valentine's Day.

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.
