Those three words have so much meaning to so many, but to just as many others, it means nothing. Love in itself is a mixture of joy and trust. My best friend only genuinely uses the word love to describe me and his parents, any other use of the word is done ironically or is insincere. And I have only felt love one other time in my life and it has ended in tears and lots of threats directed at the object of my affection. So when my boyfriend of two weeks said that he loved me I almost dumped him and went into a panic attack on the spot. When I say love, I have made a conscious decision that you are the object of my affection, but in this instance I was thrown. I don’t know if it was self doubt or doubt in him or it was too soon, but I had to sit back. Is this person going to be the one I prioritize, idolize and adore more than life itself? I already adored him. I already wanted to be around him all the time. But love? When I say I love you, I mean it. I would take a bullet for you. I would travel for hours in the snow just to get to you. I mean that I enjoy and trust you. When I say I love you I mean it, and I most definitely do love you. Darling never forget that.
Popular Right Now
In college, individually, we are practically all the yellow crayon.
It's the brightest of the box, vibrant and the epitome of sunshine... Until it's four years later and you lack the will to go on, thanks to your caffeine-induced all-nighters, novel-long writing assignments, and booze therapy. Eventually, every yellow crayon gets a little bit of the other colors on it, leaving its original, striking shine a little dull.
However, the majors that cause the yellow to change are colors of their own. They make us feel as if there's a light at the end of this tunnel of torture.
1. Maroon: Advertising/Marketing
A determined and ambitious red, but still cool, calm, and collected. Advertisers and marketers are determined to push their campaigns, appeal to the wants and needs of their target audience, and create enjoyable content to maintain customer loyalty. In a high-pressure environment like this, it's important to keep your head up and not to panic. Even when it all hits the fan, you have to stand your ground and not freak out.
2. Indigo: Engineering
Engineers appear to be confident Ravenclaws on the outside, but they're drowning on the inside (hence the blue). Their workload requires tough math classes, science, physics, and many more. And they have to be good at all of those! If you walk around on the engineering part of campus, you'll hardly ever see a smiling face. All are expressions of stress and fear. It's a lot of work, but engineers will eventually make it out alive. I promise!
3. Green: Journalism
Journalists are always after the news and the big scoop. Green is typically associated with new beginnings and growth. Journalism is constantly expanding in some way. While many people think that it is a dying field, it is actually morphing into a purely digital medium. Don't underestimate your print and broadcast journalists, because they'll be way better off than you could imagine. They're good at adapting and conquering obstacles, true to their major.
4. Pink: Nursing
There is no better color to represent kindness and helpfulness than pink. Nurses are compassionate and seek to help anyone who steps through the door. However, while nurses have to be kind, it is not a job for the faint of heart. You will see many unpleasant things as a nurse and you have to be prepared for it. You have to know that you want to help people, no matter the circumstance. Pink is one of those colors confused with weakness, but that could not be further from the truth. Never underestimate the power of pink and never underestimate the strength of nurses.
5. Orange: Education
Orange is bright and warm, as most teachers are. They hold the knowledge to teach future generations and practically raise kids while their parents are at work. They are miracle workers that have a lot to deal with on a daily basis. They have to mediate between kids, teach them to uphold the morals taught by their parents, and even teach them better than their parents ever could. People don't give teachers enough credit and they deserve more money than they get.
6. Grey: Business
All business, a serious grey is meant for the business and economics majors. Grey isn't necessarily bland or boring. Grey has a boss-like demeanor. It's persuasive and can own a room. This is why it's perfect to describe business majors. These people learn the ins and outs of sales, buying, stocks, etc. These people are so money smart that it's insane. Also, it helps that suits come in grey.
7. Violet: Psychology and Criminology
Psychology and criminology majors can analyze every little reason you do the things you do or why you are the way you are. They are far superior at understanding the human brain and the behavior patterns. Violet fits the bill when it comes to these majors, given that they are a breed of their own. They are mysterious, much like the color purple, and can solve the mysteries of humankind.
