Luke P. Shows What It Means to be a Toxic Boyfriend

This season of The Bachelorette consists of cute guys, a bachelorette who is not afraid of being true to herself, and most of all Luke P. Out of the countless attractive, kind, eligible bachelors this season, it is frustrating to see Hannah continue to keep Luke who clearly "is not there for the right reasons". As frustrating as it is for America to watch Hannah hand Luke a rose each week, it shows us just how easy it is for girls to fall for a guy they know is not good for them.

Luke P. has had his fair share of controversy this season. Between his aggressive behavior, manipulative lying, and inability to get along with the other bachelors, there is always something to be annoyed at him about. However, Luke P. is a great learning tool for young girls across America because, through his actions, they can learn to recognize the warning signs of what can develop into a toxic relationship.

Luke is always changing his story when he is around Hannah in order to make her feel bad for him; he has repeatedly thrown people under the bus by saying they have been bullying him. Hannah was a target on the last season of The Bachelor, so by claiming he is also being bullied, he knows he can have Hannah feel bad for him. He also constantly talks about his relationship with God in conversations with Hannah, which he knows is a very important factor in her life. His ability to say whatever Hannah wants to hear demonstrates how easily he can manipulate girls in relationships.

Luke P. is also always fighting with both the other bachelors and Hannah and additionally, has judged what she has done in other relationships. If Hannah recognizes that they are always fighting and that Luke has a temper, why does she continue to keep him each week? Hannah is falling for lust over love, which is something that many girls mistakenly fall for. She knows that she is attracted to him and that he always says what she wants to hear, so she ignores the major red flags in their relationship. However, this is dangerous for Hannah in her search for a husband because if she ultimately chooses him, they will have a very toxic marriage that will not last.

I hope that Hannah will come to realize that Luke P. is not husband material, and I also hope that young girls who are watching this learn what to look out for in guys to avoid becoming involved in an unhealthy relationship.

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.
