It's been a couple of years. You're certain you've found "The One," and you're just waiting for the shiny ring and those four special words: "will you marry me?" One beautiful night on a cruise ship, you turn around and there he is down on one knee holding out a ring and suddenly, a million thoughts start rushing through your head...

When you see him down on one knee...

1. "OMG this is FINALLY happening!!!"

2. "OK, look surprised!"

3. "Why am I crying? Seriously, what are these tears doing in my eyes?!"

4. "Wow, that's a big ring. I wonder how much it cost!"

5. "Yes. Yes! YES!"

Right after you say "yes"...

6. "OMG this is really happening!!"

7. "Which selfie makes my ring look shiny?"

When you tell your parents...

8. "No, I'm not pregnant!!"

9. "No, I haven't set a date yet or started planning yet!"

10. "Aw we're all going to be a family!"


When you make it "Facebook Official..."

11. "Yes, my ring is gorgeous, thank you!"

12. "I've never heard of half of these people?! My fiancé must have a lot of friends."

13. "I can't believe these people seriously just invited themselves to the wedding!"


When you're one week into the engagement...

14. "Wow, Pinterest has so many great ideas. DIY bride, here I come!"

15. "I'm going to be done planning my wedding like a month flat. This is easy!"


When you're two weeks into the engagement...

16. "That costs HOW much?!"

17. "I can't believe I haven't got everything planned yet. There's so much to think about! I don't know how to do this!"


18. When you realize none of it matters if you're marrying the person of your dreams...

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.

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.
