Happy Marriage Blueprint

Every couple argues, even if they say they don't. With being together all the time like most couples are or even living together, there are bound to be arguments every once in a while. Some of these arguments may be about things that actually matter, but I'm willing to bet the majority of the arguments are about stupid little things that don't really matter. My and my boyfriend are the crowned champions of arguing about dumb things that don't matter, so I've put together a little list of the top 5 things we argue about. I hope someone out there can relate to this; otherwise, my relationship might be in trouble!


This one is capitalized for obvious reasons. Every time we're heading to town to get something to eat, he'll ask me "So, what do you wanna eat?" and I'll say, "I don't know, where do you wanna go?" and he'll say, "Wherever you wanna go." I JUST SAID I don't know where I wanna go. So, then we'll have the same old argument about me never knowing what I want to eat, about me always wanting to eat at the same places, about him never telling me where he wants to eat, and about me always shooting down his ideas when he does tell me where he wants to eat...

2. The imaginary, but still relevant, line in the middle of the bed.

We're always saying to each other, "get back on your side of the bed." We even recently upgraded from a full-sized bed to a queen-sized in hopes of fixing this problem, but I don't think it's working...He still fusses about me always ending up right beside him no matter how far apart we are when we fall asleep. I can't help it. I get cold and he's got body heat.

3. Laundry

At this point, I think he's forgotten how to do laundry. I say this because every time I come home, the hamper is overflowing, just waiting for me to do something about it. Another problem I have with dirty laundry is the way some of it always ends up on the floor surrounding the hamper, but somehow never makes it into the hamper. Seriously, it's right there. You couldn't have gone a couple more inches and actually dropped it in the hamper? Definitely one of my biggest pet peeves....

4. Thermostat Settings

I like to keep the house very cold. I just can't sleep if it's hot. But my boyfriend is more concerned about the electric bill, so he keeps turning off my A/C. Then, I'll complain about how hot it is until he turns it back on.

5. What movie to watch from Redbox

We have extremely different tastes in movies. He prefers something action-y with lots of gun fights and blood, while I prefer Nicholas Sparks or the occasional comedy. Normally, I try to avoid fighting about this by suggesting that we just get two movies, one for each of us. But sometimes, he gets a little greedy and then I get a little pissed off.

These are just a few of the stupid things couples fight about. Trust me, there are many many more, including: which way the roll of toilet paper goes, whether or not to cuddle, whose turn it is to do the dishes, in-laws, who gets control of the tv remote, why do they always get control of the tv remote, and so on.. The point is, after being together for a while, every couple will find dumb little things to argue about. It just means you love each other. Don't take these small meaningless arguments to mean anything. It happens to every couple!

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.
