Thank you.

To The Boyfriend Who Loved Me When I Couldn't Love Myself


I can't always put into words the love I have for you. It took me many days and many nights away from you to realize how thankful I truly am for you and how much I appreciate everything you've done for me. You were the first person that I trusted in a very long time and I don't just give out my trust to just anyone. It was always very hard for me to get truly attached to someone, because in my life people always left so quickly.

When I first met you, I didn't think it would ever go beyond "Hello." I never knew that simple "hello" would turn into coffee dates, going out to dinner, and movie nights on your couch. I didn't know that "hello" would turn into me being your girlfriend and you committing yourself to me and only me. I didn't know that that "hello" would turn into me falling absolutely, head-over-heels in love with you. It was strange for me to have someone who was all about the and only me.

Could it be? We've been dating a while and I can surely say yes, it's true. You remind me every day how much you care for me and love me. You're as close to perfect as perfect can be and I couldn't imagine my life without you at this point. So, I would like to say a series of thank you's to you. Thank you's that I think about everyday, but I don't necessarily always say because I don't know how to put them into words, but now I do.

So, here it goes:

Thank you for being my person. It's not often that you find someone that you think might be your actual soulmate.

Thank you for being the person I can rely on and go to for all of my problems. Even though I don't always want to open up to you, I appreciate that you'll just sit there in silence with me and hold me when I cry.

Thank you for being you. You are just this mixture of handsome, charming, and goofy all in one, and that's my favorite kind of person.

Thank you for being the brightness in my life when everything else feels dark. I'm not going to go into detail about my issues because you already know about them. I just want to say how much I appreciate you staying even when I feel like the most broken person in the world.

Thank you for getting me to trust again. Not just trust you, but also the world, others, and most importantly, myself.

Thank you for showing me how to laugh and smile for real, even when I don't want to. You know how much I love to laugh and I truly believe you bring out my true self.

Thank you for believing in and supporting me. When I want to try something new, or I'm simply doing something that I love, guess what? You're there.

Thank you for showing me that love really does exist and that it is possible. All I can say is, I've never loved anyone as much as I do you.

Thank you for being one of my favorite people in the entire world. Seriously, I would probably talk about you 24/7 if I could.

Thank you for having a smile that just makes me want to melt every time I see it. Whether it be in person, on Snapchat, or on FaceTime (although I do prefer in person the most, but it's all the same).

Thank you for giving me hugs for any occasion. Whether I'm happy, sad, mad, they just are always so warm and comforting. They're also some of the best hugs I've ever received.

Thanks for letting me know that not everything in the world is terrible. Sometimes you just have to have a PMA (positive mental attitude) and always move Ever Forward.

Thank you for texting me "Goodmorning" and "Goodnight" every day and for always keeping the communication alive. It warms my heart when you let me know that you're busy and can't be on your phone, or that you're just texting me to simply tell me that you're thinking of me.

Thank you for being kind to my family. Not a lot of people will hold a conversation with my dad and you did that right off the bat. That's something we both appreciate.

Thank you for making me the happiest girl alive. Without you, I think I would be on a totally different path right now.

And most importantly, thank you for loving me when I couldn't love myself.

These are just a few things that I wanted to thank you for and I'm sure there is way more. Just know that even though I may not always say all of this, I'm always feeling this. Every love song I hear reminds me of you and there's never a time you aren't on my mind. Thank you for being you.

I love you,

Your Girlfriend

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.
