What Does Galentine's Day Really Mean?

We should be celebrating how much we love our friends every day of the year, not just one out of 365

Galentine's Day, not Valentine's Day, but GALentine's Day. Supposedly, this day is February 13, and it is solely dedicated to celebrate the love you have for your friends. While most girls are marking their calendars, all I'm thinking is is this really the only day where I can celebrate how awesome my friends are? Shouldn't we be doing this every day, not just on February 13? Thinking about this made me truly realize how much we take our friends for granted.

We should be celebrating how much we love our friends every day of the year, not just one out of 365. Now, I'm not saying that Galentine's Day should not celebrate (because let's be honest, it's adorable that someone thought of this), but we shouldn't just be thinking about how much we love our friends for only one day.

Friends are a crucial part of life. They're always there for you, whether you need to eat a ton of junk food and cry, or if you're laughing at the dumbest thing that only you guys would understand. They send the funniest things to the group chat late at night, and they share some of your favorite memories with you. We should be celebrating how lucky and grateful we are to have our friends every day, not just on February 13.

Although the idea of Galentine's Day is adorable and fun, we should not just have one designated day to celebrate our friends. We should be doing this every day, even if it means just saying something as simple as "I'm glad you're in my life" to your friends. We don't need to have an extravagant day to celebrate our friendships, we should be able to show how much they mean to us every day.

To my friends, Happy Galentine's Day, you guys are the absolute best.

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.
