10 Reasons I Fell In Love With You
Emily Voss

To my Boyfriend,

I know you do not like the mushy-gushy romance stuff but if you ever do read this I just wanted to let you know you have been on my mind a lot more lately than you ever have been before. I love you for countless reasons, but I wanted to touch on a couple that seem to be important to me.

  • Reason number one why I fell in love with you: I fell in love with the way you speak. The way you speak to me. I fell in love with how your voice sends bullets through my chest every time you tell me you love me. I fell in love with the way you whisper to me about secrets we have or things kept between you and me.
  • Reason number two why I fell in love with you: I fell in love with the way you handle me, and comfort me, and how you are the shoulder I can cry on. You are my favorite person to go to for anything. Wether it is because I failed a test or I am having girl problems or simply because I want to hear you talk, you are always here for me no matter the circumstance. You always have my back.
  • Reason number three why I fell in love with you: I love you for your personality. It is one of my favorite traits about you. Along the way of falling in love, I fall more in love with you as a person. Your looks are a bonus but falling in love with the way you smile or the way you get excited are the only things that matter to me.
  • Reason number five why I fell in love with you: I fell in love with the way you are passionate about the sport you secretly love. How you manage to motivate me while you motivate yourself. I fell in love with the way you get mad after you have done bad or the way you cross the finish line holding that number one up like you know you have done your job. I fell in love with the way you tell me I am good even though it may not be true, you cover it up pretty well. I fell in love with the way you race and how every step you take you aim to be better.
  • Reason number 6 why I fell in love with you: I fell in love with your beliefs. Wether is is about God, fate, or other things, you have taught me a great amount of self-belief, like it is up to me to decide how I want to live my life. I fell in love with how open you are with ideas and other beliefs but also how you do not demonetize my beliefs.
  • Reason number seven why I fell in love with you: I fell in love with your touch. Throughout our relationship, I feel like I have become closer to you not only by comfort and trust, but by souls. I feel as if our souls are connected together, beating as one, growing as one, learning as one. Your touch is home, my world, and is all of my feelings collected into one. You have become my place for comfort and guidance.
  • Reason number eight why I fell in love with you: I fell in love with the way you say my name. The way you call me "Em". I love the comfort in your voice and the gentleness of your words. The way you say my name reminds me of how beautiful I am, how loved I am, and how much you love me.
  • Reason number nine why I fell in love with you: I fell in love with our bond. The way we play fight, kiss, or hug. Everything feels real, everything feels right. It is the way we are so comfortable in front of each other that has made me fall in love with you. It is the way I feel when I see you after a couple of days or weeks without seeing you. I fell in love with the way you hold me close showing me how much you care about me. I fell in love with the way we do life together.
  • The very last reason why I fell in love with you: Because it was you, in that building listening to me. Because it was you sitting next to me trying to be calm thinking this girl is way too crazy, however you stayed. Because it was you who pulled me in close knowing I was scared to death and you kissed me. Because it was you who held me close when I cried my eyes out telling you about my past. Because it was you who showed me how big this world is and how I can do anything my heart allows me to do. Because it is you who I wake up to every morning, and it is you who I fall asleep with every night. Because you love me no matter who I am or who I want to be.


Your Girlfriend.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.
