Songs that truly capture moments we all know.

In all my years of living when I think about relationships, I think about songs. Songs that truly capture what it's like to be in a relationship. The music creates an environment and the words tell the story. One of the best feelings to me is when you're listening to a song and it reminds you of a memory or a person. Happy or sad, the emotions it causes can be spectacular. Based off of my experiences, I've created a soundtrack that I feel tells the story of a relationship we've all had.

1. Meeting.

"Your Hand In Mine"

Whether it's in a bar, in a coffee shop, or maybe just passing glances while grocery shopping, the first time you meet your person is like a wind storm. It catches you off guard and gives you tingles. This song reminds me of meeting someone and instantly having a connection. This person is different, you don't know how, yet, but you will soon.

2. First Date.

"First Day Of My Life."

Let me start by saying this is one of my favorite songs ever. The purity behind the words and bliss that comes with it. The first date is always scary and nerve racking. When this is the real deal, that first date is the beginning of new possibilities. "I'm glad I didn't die before I met you," is my favorite line. Even if it doesn't work out in the long run, I was supposed to meet you.

3. New Relationship.

" You Make My Dreams Come True."

Remember when Joseph Gordon-Levitt was dancing to this in 500 Days of Summer? That's how a new relationship feels. It's exciting and fun, it's full of laughs and, well, the best dreams.

4. The Firsts.

" Masollan."

The first kiss, the first night over, the first time meeting their parents. There are so many firsts in a relationship, as exciting as it is, it's also scary. When I listen to this song I think of meeting the friends for the first time. Oh man, the nerves! I'm thrilled that my person wants me in his life that much and he trusts me enough to enter the next realm but that's also the time of when an indescribable amount of emotions comes into play.

5. Fall In Love.

"Little Sines."

If I could picture flying through a galaxy, falling in love would be my inspiration. It really is the best feeling in the world. It may be something as simple as them kissing the top of your head while you are cuddling, but in that moment: everything changes. Colors are a little brighter, your smile is a little wider, and your person is now your favorite person. Life without would be the absolute worst and life with them kills you. You have doubts and insecurities, but at this stage in your life, they aren't one.

6. First Major Fight.

" I Won't Let You Go."


Yeah, this one is tough. You go from "The Honeymoon Stage," back to reality. You start to see faults in them; the way they chew is awful, they don't put the toilet seat down, etc, etc. You've had arguments before, little ones that are easily resolved in a matter of minutes, but there comes a time when that one argument questions everything. You're angry, hurt, let down; eventually both of you will get over it and apologize and soon enough those annoyances will be the things you find adorable.

"If your sky is falling, just take my hand and hold it," no matter how bad that first fight is, you're not gonna give up that easily.

7. He's The One.

" Make You Feel My Love."

At some point, even for a second, it crosses your mind they may actually be it. For better or worse. The thought of them with someone else is sickening. You'll take it all; the good, the bad, and the ugly. They can tell you horrible things but you're not running away. There is really nothing you wouldn't do.


8. Or Not..

"Song For Zula."

But all too soon, that feeling passes and the doubts kick in. The real ones that you can't look past. Maybe they show you a side of them that isn't what you fell in love with. Maybe you change. You want kids and they don't, maybe you want more. Whatever the reason, it's definitely not a conclusion that is easy to accept.

9. One Last Shot.

"Wolves."

You may think that you can work it out, but that is rare. This moment in the relationship is the absolute worst, you still are clinging on to some hope but you're crumbling. You'll fight until you're on your knees begging for mercy and when you get to that point, you've just lost your person. It may be for the better but you never wanted to give up because you would have done anything and somehow that still wasn't enough.

10. The Breakup.

" Skinny Love."


We all get it, break ups are the worst.

11. I Miss You.

"Someday When I Stop Loving You."

You'll get past the stage of crying, not properly cleaning yourself, and not leaving the couch for a week, but there will come a point when you start to miss them. Feelings will still be there and your heart will be on the mend but, "what if?" What if it wasn't supposed to end? What if you deserve a second chance? I'm sorry to say, but move on. If it really wasn't over and all of those thoughts are true, it will come back and you'll know it. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen too often.

12. Moving On.

" Lovers In Japan."

Picture this: You're walking down a sidewalk on a perfect day, the sky is blue with no clouds in sight, the weather is perfect, and your smile is wider than ever. You've done it, you've moved on. Life is a wonderful thing and you have started a new chapter in it. Who knows what will happen but in that moment, you're where you're supposed to be.

13. Bonus Song!

"Best Thing I Never Had."

Okay but seriously, there will be time when you're a little angry and the only thing you can do is blast Beyoncé and come to the conclusion that you were, in fact, the best thing they ever had!

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.
242631

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

6 Ways For Men To Understand Women

The introduction. Let's face it, there's WAY more than 6.

We know we're confusing, but hopefully this helps you understand us a little better.

1. "I have nothing to wear"

Giphy

We realize that we have a ton of clothes in our closets to choose from. We know that some things are super similar. We know that there are some things we wear all the time and other things that we NEVER wear. Regardless of the Go-Tos or "I'm saving this for a 'special occasion'" (which will probably never happen), there's always an excuse. When we say we have nothing to wear, it means that we don't have anything that we WANT to wear.

This contributes to us taking SO long to get ready. Whether it's a date, a night out with the girls, hanging out with a group, or just another Tuesday, we never have anything to wear. We try to dress to match our mood, but that's still not a guarantee. It never is. If we try something on, thinking that it'll work, there's always something wrong with it SO it goes in the reject pile. As the pile grows, we reach the "I have nothing to wear" stage.

And just to make things more complicated and annoying, we go back to the first outfit we tried on and call it good -OR resort to the Go-Tos that we wear WAY too much- (at least I normally do). We waste all that time and effort and there's usually no way to get around it.

2. Periods

Giphy

Guys, let me explain to you how a period works.

Every month, our Uterus starts decorating a nursery. "Just wanted to let you know I have everything prepared for the baby! The nursery looks great and I picked out this pretty wallpaper and I'm gonna read stories to it every night!"

Then we come around and say "Oh.. There's not going to be a baby this month.."

Uterus: ......

Us: "Oh god, please no"

Uterus: .... *trashes everything* *rips off the wallpaper* *screams like an angry baboon*

THIS gentlemen, is what we have to go through. Every time we get a cramp, it's basically our uterus stabbing us with broken pieces of the crib and twisting it. This is why we double over. This is why some (maybe most) women cry during their periods. Our uterus throws a freaking temper tantrum when we don't get pregnant.

By the time the uterus gets tired and forgives us, it goes back to setting up a new nursery with upmost excitement. And when we don't get pregnant, the cycle repeats.

Wanna know what to do? Don't make us do anything. Pamper us. Most women like to eat chocolate, so do that (for some reason, that doesn't work for me, but oh well). Have the heating pad ready to go. Ice cream. Even while we look disgusting, reassure us. The uterus' temper tantrum makes us question everything so be ready for that.

But God help you if you say the wrong thing. Most of the time, we don't know what that wrong thing will be, so tread lightly. Just do NOT say ANYTHING about PMSing. Our uterus will hear that and give us some of that hateful energy to rip you apart.

You have been warned.

3. Unsolicited dick pics

Giphy

Just don't. Despite what you think, they are NOT aesthetically pleasing.

When a girl actually asks for them and/or agrees to swap nudes, that's the only time it's okay. But if they're anything like me, the pictures still won't do anything for them. I guess it's to make y'all feel wanted and appreciated? I don't know.

If you send unsolicited dick pics, there's a pretty good chance that her girlfriends will see the pictures so be warned.

4. Hoodie Theft

Giphy

Sorry guys, there's no way to get around this one. If your girl takes your hoodie, you probably won't get it back.

And if you try to out-smart us by getting two of the exact same hoodie so both of us have one, that won't work either. You foolish mortals think we won't take the second-twinning hoodie too? HA.

5. You: "Where do you want to eat?' Her: "I don't know"

Giphy

I HAVE YOUR SOLUTION.

Instead of asking your girl where she wants to eat, MAKE HER GUESS where you're taking her. Her first guess is where y'all are going.

The code has been cracked and most girls don't even realize this sneaky trick (unless they've seen the Twitter meme).

6. The silent treatment

Giphy

Honestly... when we're giving you the silent treatment, USUALLY it's because we want you to figure out what you did wrong for yourselves. But it makes this difficult because sometimes we don't even know the reason. Stupid? I know. But we're girls. What do you expect?

We're waiting for you to come up with a solution to whatever problem we think you caused. Because we're right. Even when we're wrong, we're right.

You've probably found with personal experience that you've always found a way to screw it up and you don't even know how. She freaks out for almost no reason and usually never shares why she's so pissed off.

If you don't wanna take the chance on finding the solution because of even the slightest fear of making it worse SOMEHOW, just chill. Spend time with her, don't do anything stupid on your phone, don't play games online with the guys- just spend time with her. It'll let her know that even though she's freaking out for probably no reason, that you still care. Because what'll happen if you leave? "OH SO YOU'RE JUST GONNA GET UP AND LEAVE?"

You guys are honestly in a lose-lose situation and I feel for y'all so much. If you know her well enough to leave and let her calm down, then go for it- at your own risk. Just handle the situation calmly and be like "if you need anything, just call or text me. I'll be there."

DO NOT TELL HER TO CALM DOWN, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.

Just give her space SOMEHOW and let her chill. She'll more than likely be over it the next day.

I know this whole thing is giving you mixed messages on what to do, but honestly we don't really know what we want you guys to do, so there you go.

This may help, this may not, but it's a decent start. :)
