A True Love Story

My Love Story

A True Love Story
Nikki Choate

Falling in love is one of the most amazing, hardest things that has ever happened to me. However, I don't regret any of it. This is my "love story."

I was a freshman in high school and had the "I know everything!" attitude. I had so many friends at that time and I loved my school life more than anything. During my childhood I had been neglected and had a traumatizing life. I've been through and seen things that I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy. My parents never married, yeah they dated other people, but never fell in love. I did not want to be like them in any way, shape, or form. I wanted to fall in love as fast as possible. I mean, who didn't want to get married at 14? Ironically the day after I got my heartbroken, I was on the bus and seen the most handsome man I have ever laid eyes on get on the bus. Yes, he was a senior with long dirty-blonde hair, and hazel eyes with the most perfect smile that you could possible imagine. I wasn't a shy girl so of coarse I got his name. After asking around, (most of my friends were upperclassman) I heard that he was a nice boy, although, he had some flaws that I disagreed with. He had a couple different addictions, and he did NOT have his priorities straight. Yes, my standards were very high. I liked this boy so much that I decided (two years later) to give him a chance.

I fell in love with this man. I even started to fall in the whole with him, and didn't care because he was finally mine. We spent every single day together. I remember before we said "I love you" because that was a big deal to me, that I would feel my voice try to push it out. I pushed it back in because I felt like it was just too soon. On a date about two weeks later, we were laughing about who knows what and he grabbed me and said the three words that I've never heard actually meaningful. Everything had stopped.

A year later, the love of my life and I both went through something that I never thought I would have to deal with. That night we realized that our lives needed to change dramatically and we needed to become more serious and start our lives together. We both got jobs, we both finished school, and now I'm in college and he's working and about to start his academic career. I still get butterflies and I cannot wait to marry this man.

How do I know that he is the right one? How do I know that I'm actually in love with him? Because when you truly do fall in love with someone, you don't have any doubts. Of coarse there will be times where you're lost, and confused, but you will always know in the back of your mind that you will marry that special person. You have no questions or doubts about it. He changed my life as I changed his. We saved each other from a world of sin.

One thing I remember is that I stopped looking. When this beautiful person came into my life, I was not looking for love. I have given up. I had no hope, nor any faith. Yes, we may be young still and we were also young then, but, even after living together for the past three years, the feelings have not faded or changed.

This is not a fairytale. This is my actual love story and I have faith that whoever is reading this receives hope and faith because love can come at any time, any age.

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.

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.
