An Open Letter To My Boyfriend On Valentine's Day

Because this is a day in which it's appropriate for me to gush about how great you are to everyone.

An Open Letter To My Boyfriend On Valentine's Day

To my Boyfriend,

I can't help but be thankful for you as Valentine's Day is just around the corner. You spoil me to pieces, and when the 14th rolls around, I'll probably remind you of all of the wonderful thoughts that pass through my mind when I hear your name... but I want you to know I'd feel that way with or without this holiday. Valentine's Day is a lovely holiday-- couples of all sorts get to express their feelings for each other on this universal day of love and acceptance-- but I want you to know that on February 15th when all of the candy goes on sale, you'll still be my Valentine.

You know how when you meet someone you never know how the friendship or relationship will turn out? That was you to me at 2 in the morning as we were doing yoga on your dorm room floor. But I sure as hell knew I wanted to see you again. When you meet someone who leaves you laughing uncontrollably AND treats you to your first university sub, you know it's not going to be the last time you see them. Fast forward a few months (and Snapchats) later, and we're going on what I consider our first official date. Once again, I find myself charmed by your smile, good looks, and ability to make me laugh. You won me over for good that day, and the rest is history.

So thank you...

Thank you for being my rock. You pick me up when I'm down, literally, even if it was because we had a tickle fight and I lost (again). You motivate me in a way I never knew. To be honest, I think I procrastinate so much because I enjoy the simple reminders from you. Thank you for supporting me, and know that I will always be there for you. You make me so proud, and there's nothing better than showing you off just by holding your hand.

Thanks for taking care of me when I'm sick, and not giving up on me when I'm frustrating you beyond belief. Also, thanks for not getting too embarrassed when I tell all of your friends how great you are.

Thank you for making me smile. More than that-- you make me laugh. The best part about you making me laugh is the look of satisfaction on your face when I finally calm down. I hope to truly make you as happy as you make me.

Thank you for being my cuddle buddy, and not getting too mad when we watched Grease and I insisted on singing every single song even when I didn't know the words. Your tolerance for my quirks makes you even more appealing than you were when I met you.

Most of all, thank you for being you- my handsome, funny, intelligent, wonderful boyfriend. Happy Valentine's Day to such an incredible guy. You're worth much more than a box of candies to me.


Your extremely grateful girlfriend

P.S. I couldn't imagine having another Valentine by my side

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.

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.
