Why Long Distance Relationships Are Worth It

Long distance relationships are like waiting for your food to come at the restaurant, when you finally see it and get to hold it, it's the best feeling in the world.

Why Long Distance Relationships Are Worth It
The Notebook Ice Cream Scene

When I first began my long distance experience I was incredibly nervous and not too thrilled about it. Most long distance relationships start with one going to college or getting a new job. You have one of two choices at that point. Tough it out and see if it works or breakup. It doesn't matter if you're a couple of hours apart, states, or in a whole different country, long distance is long distance. Here is why it is oh so worth it if this person is the one you truly love. Distance means so little when someone means so much.

1. When you finally get to see each other, it's more special than usual.

The moment when you finally get to see each other is like falling in love all over again. When you get to spend this time together, you realize how you used to take it for granted. Even if you are just having a Netflix date, it is still so exciting!

2. There comes a time when your heart will just hurt and it makes you realize how in love you truly are.

When you truly miss someone, it shows you how much you care about that person.

3. You get creative on talking to each other since you can't see each other face to face whenever you want.

You are forced to have great communication. Whether it be texting, phone calls, letters, or FaceTime dates, communication is so important. Through the long distance journey, you learn you don't have to talk to each other 24-7. #hotlinebling

4. You always have something to look forward to.

When you get to see each other every couple of weeks you usually make plans to do something awesome and even if you don't, a simple pizza night in will be something you mark on your calendar.

5. Surprise visits are life.

The best feeling in the world is when they show up unannounced just because they miss you!

6. Time difference? Psh... I've got this down pat.

Whether it be across the country or across the world you've managed to make it work.

7. True love knows no distance.

If you love each other, and I mean TRULY love each other, being in two different places won’t matter. Distance will not tear you apart because you won’t let it. You find ways to make it work.

8. The longer you have to wait for something, the more you appreciate it.

Just like when you're at the restaurant and waiting for the food to come, that moment you see the server coming to your table, yeah that's the same feeling.

9. Faith

Having faith in someone or something is having confidence in what you have without having to see it.

10. Of course, it's going to be hard and you're going to miss each other, but if you're truly meant for each other, it will work. You always have the future to look forward to.

Share this with your loved one and let them know that even when times get hard, everything happens for a reason and what's meant to be will find it's way.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
