20 Things You And Your S.O. Have Probably Done After A Year Of Being In A Relationship
Elise Parker

While there's no right or wrong when it comes to timing in relationships, making it to your first anniversary is something you and your partner should be super proud of. After all, not every new relationship will hit that point.

The honeymoon period has passed, and you're still together – that's a pretty good sign that your feelings for each other are more than just infatuation.

if you're in a relationship for the long haul, chances are that you and your significant other have done a few of these things (or maybe all of them).

1. You've met each other's families

This may or may not include both immediate and non-immediate.

2. You've gone on vacation together

Both short and long.

3. You've met each other's friends

Especially important ones.

4. You've been through some ups and downs

And worked though them all.

5. You've talked about your plans for the future

What you want in life, where you plan on going, etc.

6. You've spent holidays and birthdays together

Whether its yours or another family members.

7.  You learned each other's love languages

And how to build on what it means for your relationship.

8. You've been a source of encouragement for one another

9. You've talked about goals and aspirations 

And figured out where you fit within each others.

10. You know each other's deepest secrets.

11. You've spent the night​​ with each other

This is more for older couples that are older and it doesn't have to be anything more than sleeping.

12. You care about each other's interests

Even if its something that you don't particularly like.

13. "Dating rules" no longer apply

This is a gradual process that probably started from the first date, but it's something worth celebrating. Remember when you fretted over him not replying to your texts for hours, or worried that he'd think you clingy if you replied too soon?

That is now a thing of the past. Not to say that you "don't care", but things are just more relaxed.

14.  You've gained each other's unconditional trust and support

15. You're not really trying to impress each other any more

Dressing to impress, wearing perfume and matching undies - that only happens on special occasions now.

16. You know each other's pasts

And you're OK with that.

17. When you argue, it's fair

It's not necessarily about the arguments (if you can even call some of them that) themselves, but about what you do after and how you grow as a couple.

18. You are your best selves around each other

19. You're more than just "in a relationship"

You're partners, best friends and more.

20. It's just the start of something beautiful

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

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.
