Yes, I'm Single And Yes, I'm Okay With That

Relationships aren't for everybody and that's okay!

Yes, I'm Single And Yes, I'm Okay With That
Molly Martinez

Too many times I've heard someone say to me:

"Why hasn't anyone snagged you yet?"

"You're too pretty to be single!"

"The right one will come along when you least expect it!"

Yes, I understand that being single is a drag but how in the world is it affecting you?

The answer to that question my friends is it's NOT!! Now don't get me wrong sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be in a relationship but then I quickly realize who I am as a person.

Now for those of you that don't know me, my parents raised me up to be a very independent woman and taught me that I don't need a man to make me happy or to depend on and let me tell you THEY ARE SO RIGHT!

Our youth is so caught up in this world where they think that the perfect person or relationship exists but guess what it doesn't. #nobodyisperfect

Literally, every time I open some form of social media, whether it be Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or even Snapchat, there is a painted picture of how a relationship should be and guess what I am not okay with that.

We want someone that will tell us that we are pretty or to text us every day but that's not what a relationship is about.

Now again for those of you that do know me, you'll know that I have NEVER been in a relationship (middle school does not count.) Granted that I might not be in one that doesn't mean that I haven't been around people that aren't.

I always hear their point of views of what a relationship is about and how you always have to communicate with each other.

Not everything is always going to be good, there are bad moments in every relationship, you just gotta work it out and talk to one another. A relationship is DEF not easy!!

Don't get me wrong I always have those moments where I text my friends telling them how lonely I am (like literally last night) but I wouldn't want to just jump into one because I am lonely. I'm at a point in my life where I'm happy with where I am at and my main focus is on me.

Everyone is different and of course, relationships aren't for everyone (like me) but it's okay to be single and just focus on yourself.

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.
