I only wish you the best in life and that you find someone that makes you as happy as I am.

What I Want To Say To My Boyfriend's Ex-Girlfriend(s)

To my boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend(s),

For some reason, society leads us to think we are supposed to hate each other. You dated him first, and now he’s my boyfriend. But really, I appreciate you, all of you. You all helped shape him into who he is today, some more than others. Together, you helped him to figure out what traits he does and does not like in a woman.

My not wanting you and him to spend time together is not because I hate you. Frankly, I don’t have the time of day to hate you. I will keep it that way so long as you respect mine and his relationship.

You and I don’t have to be in any kind of competition, but if it comes down to that, I will fight for him. Don’t get me wrong, I will not become the woman that asks him to choose one of us. I have before and grew to learn that if I’m not his immediate decision, I don’t want to be an option at all.

I can’t say for certain that he and I will last forever, though I hope we do. I have built up a genuine love for him, but there may come a day when we find that we aren’t meant to be. If that day comes, who knows, maybe he will end up being back with one of you.

I hate that we are supposed to think it’s okay to talk about one another behind each other’s backs when we don’t even know each other. I don’t think you did him wrong, so long as you respect me, my relationship, and keep my name out of your conversations, I will return the favor.

I only wish you the best in life and that you find someone that makes you as happy as I am.

Best Wishes,

His New Girlfriend

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.
