What You Should Know Before Dating A Hopeless Romantic

You know the type: favorite movie is by far The Notebook, and dreams someone will sing us our favorite love songs. I am only slightly ashamed to admit that I am a hopeless romantic. I mean as I write this, I am listening to country love songs, melting at every sweet verse. We are somewhat displaced from reality because at a young age we fell in love with the effortless, perfect, Disney kind of love and we have our hearts dead set on finding it. For this reason, we can be especially hard to date because we will constantly wonder if the other person feels the same way towards us. We are always questioning everything because we sometimes don't realize that other people don't have the same love language as us. They don't express their love through cute songs and quotes, and sometimes we can be super annoying or come on too strong. We can't help it, though; when we love, we give it our all. We are typically idealists who believe that the head-over-heels, Noah and Allie love is completely possible. With that said, there are angels on this Earth who know exactly how to deal with us, and for that, we thank you endlessly. Here are some things you should know before falling in love with a hopeless romantic:

1. The quickest way to our hearts is a cute song.

If you tell a hopeless romantic a song that reminds you of them, they will literally be the happiest person on the planet. It feels good to put your love story to music.

2. Please try to suffer through the rom-coms.

Yes, we know this is the tenth time we've watched A Walk to Remember but please realize how happy it makes us. Also, be prepared because we cry at the most random, adorable parts of all movies.

3. Draw us a picture, pick us a dandelion, or send us a quote.

It's truly the little things that get to us. We don't expect extravagant dates or crazy gifts, just show us you care in little ways throughout the day. You'll never know how quickly that can make our day.

4. Tell us when we're being crazy.

We heavily rely on you to keep our feet on the ground. When we are on spending way too much time on Pinterest and we're already planning our dream house, please remind us that we need to relax. Think Leslie Knope on a parks project: that's our brains 24/7, always dreaming of how to make the world and our lives better. Be our Ben Wyatt.

5. We're going to love you more than you thought possible.

We can be too much for many people. If you can't handle it, it's not your fault, because many can't. At least try to realize it early, because once we fall in love, we fall hard.

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.
