7 Reasons Why February 15th is The Best Day for Singles

A day that doesn't isolate those without a significant other.

1. You get a discount on chocolate

What better way to celebrate being single than gaining a couple pounds after shoving chocolate in your mouth after you’ve decided to have a “cheat day”?

2. You don’t have to see mushy pictures of couples kissing

As if PDA isn’t bad enough on a college campus, now you’re being harassed by constant videos and pictures popping up on social media of two “love birds” going at it.

3. You can look at your bank account with happiness after realizing you didn’t spend money on a valentine

Hopefully you’ll use this extra money wisely, like spending it on that discounted chocolate or spending it on a night out with all of your other single friends.

4. You now have 364 days to find a significant other

Personally, I like being “an independent woman who don’t need no man” but for those of you that are looking for a significant other, the clock has just restarted for you. Times a ticking ladies (or guys)!

5. You don’t have to listen to your friend talk about how romantic their night was anymore

Although I am happy for you that you have such a great boyfriend/girlfriend, I really don’t care about your romantic plans and gifts/flowers/chocolates that your valentine got for you.

6. You don’t have to be assaulted by the colors pink and red

If you’re a fan of the color black and other dull colors, then the constant array of bright pinks and reds may just cause you to go blind. Luckily, it is February 15th so back to black (aka the color of our souls) we go!

7. Cuffing season is officially over, now it’s time to grab a beer and prepare for St. Patrick’s Day!

The best way to get over this incredibly sappy, unnecessary holiday is to start preparing for the next holiday. So for all of you single people out there, go put on your “Kiss me I’m Irish” t-shirt/button, grab a beer, and start going crazy for the best holiday that doesn’t segregate single people.

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.
