I Want To Skip The Dating Period And Go Right To Watching Netflix In My PJ's With My S.O.

I'm looking for my Prince Charming but let's just agree to skip the Princess part so you can start treating me like a Queen.

I Want To Skip The Dating Period And Go Right To Watching Netflix In My PJ's With My S.O.

Picture this: You're 25 and you're on the couch in the living room of the house that you bought a year ago right after you got married in your home church to the man of your dreams with all your friends and family watching. You are holding a glass of your favorite wine and he has a beer in hand that he's resting on the arm of the couch.

After you play Netflix roulette with him for a few minutes and argue about what to watch, you finally settle for the same show that you watch every night with him before you head to bed. Your head is on his lap and his fingers keep finding your hair as your dog lays at your feet on the opposite end of the couch.

You lean up to finish the last sip of your wine and as you reach for the coffee table to set the glass down, he asks if you would like another. You say 'no, thank you' and you say that you're tired and you are going to head to bed soon.

After a few more minutes, you get up and kiss him on the lips and soon head to the bedroom for bed. Before you know it, he's chasing you down the hall grabbing the tail of his t-shirt that you threw on just before you poured your glass of wine earlier in the night. Your wedding pictures line the hall and you look back to see your fur baby peeking over the arm of the couch at mom and dad running towards the last door at the end of the hall before you both slip in, close the door, and collapse on the California King bed.

Everyone wants to be married and living life with their significant other. Everyone wants to get to know someones every flaw and every freckle. Everyone wants to wake up every day with the love of their life beside them and their fur baby at their feet, but no one wants to go through the dating and the headache that it takes to get there.

Let's be honest, dating is not fun in today's world. The good girls (or guys) don't want 2 a.m. hookups or to 'grab a drink'. The good ones want to be wined and dined and treated right, they want assurance that you will take care of them, they want the truck door opened for them and surprise $9.99 flowers from Kroger just because.

I can not wait for the day that I get to call my mom after work and tell her my husband surprised me with flowers or made me an appointment for a massage and I also can't wait for the day that I get to call her and tell her that I surprised him with new tires on his truck just because he needed them and I wanted to. I can't wait for the day that I get to wake up beside him and treat him like a king because he treats me like a queen and he deserves the world.

I can not wait to be so in tune with someone that people smile when we walk by because they can feel our happiness radiating. I can not wait to have little feet running around behind me, tugging at my husband's t-shirt that I slept in beside him the night before.

To the next guy that I date, be prepared to marry me because we are skipping the classic 'dating' period and going straight to watching Netflix on the couch just before you chase me down the hall in your t-shirt. Maybe I already know you, maybe I don't, but whoever you are, I hope you are ready for the adventure of your life with me.

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.
