Yes, I Write Letters to My Future Husband

It's not that I don't know him, I just don't know him yet​.

Yes, I Write Letters to My Future Husband

Yes, it's a cliché. Yes, most people would never because it sounds stupid. Yes, I used to be one of those people. But yes, I do write letters to my future husband.

Most people laugh or look at me funny when I say that. They ask questions like "how can you write letters to someone you don't know?" or "what even are you writing to him about?" or "why even bother with that?"

Why bother? Because throughout high school, guys have completely exhausted me with the games, the ups, the downs; I figured writing to my future husband would help me regain hope for whoever is going to be with me in the future.

What am I even writing to him about? I'm writing to him about advice for when we're married, warning him about how I can't cook and how to never let me go to bed angry. I write to him about my hopes for us, how I hope we're the kind of parents that teach our kids how to love through actions and loving words. I write to him and let him know how I'm doing at the time and letting him know that I'm praying for him.

How can I write letters to someone I don't even know? It's not that I don't know him, I just don't know him yet; there's a difference. Funny enough, when I'm writing these letters I feel like I'm talking to an old friend. It's not hard to write these because where I may not know the name of the man I am going to marry; I know he's out there somewhere. I know that one day, once we're married, he'll appreciate these letters and the time I took to write to him.

I enjoy writing these letters because they excite me for the future to come. It gives me hope and helps me put up with the games, the ups, and the downs high school boys can put you through. It helps me because it reminds me that the best has yet to come, and that I can't wait to meet him.

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.
