Welcome To Cuffing Season

To all my single ladies out there, put on your big sweater.

Brace yourselves, the sappy relationship posts on Instagram are about to be at an all-time high. Girls will be so hyped up on their pumpkin spice lattes that they'll post three pictures back-to-back of them and their boyfriends picking pumpkins and they will have no shame (some refer to this as "triple posting"). Welcome to fall, which is also known as cuffing season.

According to Urban Dictionary, "the cold weather and prolonged indoor activity causes singles to become lonely and desperate to be cuffed." That's right, your friend who ranted and raved all summer about how happy she was to be single will indeed be cuffed before you know it. Guys will stop direct messaging girls on Twitter for random hookups and instead they will be direct messaging their new girlfriend's mom on Facebook about their Thanksgiving plans.

Not all will be so fortunate as to fall in love as soon as the leaves change. There will be a select few of us who are still carrying on like cuffing season isn't among us. We will be few and far between, but we will form a strong front. We will post selfies with straight faces on Instagram, we will cuddle up in our big sweaters, and we will face the cold weather alone. Break-up season treated us badly and we don't want to go through that again.

To all my single girls, keep doing what you're doing. Stay single, cuddle with your body pillow, and love yourself. To all the girls who are getting cuffed as we speak, I wish you the best of luck in your relationship. Just please keep the Instagram posts to a minimum.

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.
