10 Signs That You're Not Over Him

There are many different forms of breakups, and just like being exposed to the outside for the first time, breakups are a part of our life that make us stronger, and more immune to the heartache of separation. However, the worst ones come with an inevitable dosage of bitterness, saltiness, and basically any opposite flavor of what you'd find in a pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream. And as simple as ending things with your significant other sounds, it isn't always that easy, and those lingering feelings will bite you back when you least expect it. Here's how to tell if you're simply not over your ex.

1. You immediately look for him in any room.

Doesn't matter if you're at the gym, a party, or even in another state. You're always on the lookout for that familiar and oh so handsome face.

2. Suddenly, his Instagram turns into Tumblr.

You've been scrolling down and down on all of his pictures like they're on your Tumblr dashboard, and pretty soon you're headed into the 2012 section of his posts. If you could reblog each and every one of them, you so would.

3. The Snapchat Frenzy.

You Snapchat him every day, even though he may not always answer. But maybe today will be different! And there's always tomorrow... and the next day...

4. You compare him to other guys.

No matter how many other guys you see, your thoughts always go back to him and those sea-green eyes and that perfectly sculpted jawline...maybe he has a long lost twin somewhere? A girl can only dream.

5. Your mouth moves on its own.

Enough said...literally.

6. You imagine impossible scenarios with the two of you in your head.

Hate to break it to you, but I doubt that the scenario of you two running into each other's arms on the beach and declaring your love for each other and kissing passionately will come true. Aim for France instead of the beach, it's more realistic...right?

7. You get angry when he's with another girl.

"What's that? He's laughing with her?! He's not allowed to laugh unless I'm there! Laughing together was our thing! How dare he!"

8. You constantly stare his way... and then quickly act like you weren't.

Nope, you didn't notice his new haircut at all. And you most certainly didn't notice his brand new leather jacket from Topman, size large, with studs around the collar, in the shade heather gray. Nope, not at all.

9. You ask about him all the time.

The classic "Have you talked to him lately?" and "Does he ever ask about me?" should be translated to "Tell me everything that he's done since I last saw him."

10. Adele is your new best friend.

At least you can say that you tried.

All in all, it's important to recognize the signs before a final diagnosis. And if things don't work out in the end, you'll always have two men that you can count on. Ben and Jerry.

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.
