Relationship goals?

Social Media Relationships
ABC News

We all know how huge social media is for our generation. It obviously has its perks, but I've noticed some serious downfalls! Relationships nowadays are ending because of a simple "like" or "favorite." It's honestly a shame and it needs to stop. Here are some tips to help anyone in need of how to deal with your relationship while on social media! Feel free to share this with your friends and significant other.

#1 : Stay Lowkey but not Nonexistent!

You do not have to post every single thing your significant other does or doesn't do for you. It's okay if your boyfriend or girlfriend doesn't post about you all the time. It's not the end of the world I promise! Your relationship is worth so much more than a post!

#2 : Keep the fighting off of the internet!

I can't tell you how many times I've seen couples argue online. It's embarrassing and it gives everyone on the outside a chance to get into your business, and that is one thing you definitely do not want! It looks childish when you argue online, because you can definitely keep that to yourself and deal with the situation like an adult offline. Trust me, it gets kind of awkward when outsiders know all of your business!

#3 : Don't believe everything that you see online!

You can not compare your boyfriend/girlfriend to a twitter post or as we all know it as "relationship goals." You don't know what that couple had to do to make it to where they are today! You don't know what's really going on behind closed doors! Don't be depressed because your boyfriend hasn't bought you a Pandora ring. Be patient and make sure you're in a committed relationship before you even start to worry about things like that.

#4 Talk in person!

Communication is very important in a relationship. Try to talk in person to avoid confusion and further arguments from occurring!

#5 Be patient!

I know you've heard the saying, "good things come to those who wait." Don't think that you'll be instantly showered with gifts instantly in a relationship. Social media does a great job with giving people false hope. Don't get caught in the trap!

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
