8 Things You Should Never, EVER Say To A Young Engaged Couple

It’s honestly just annoying to always have to explain your life choices.

There always seems to be a stigma about young engaged couples. People assume that their happiness or their marriage’s longevity will be dependent on the couple’s ages. That is completely untrue and here are some things you should never say to these couples!

1. “Aren’t you a little young?”

“Young” and “ready” are two different things. I’m an adult and am plenty “old enough” to decide if I am ready to get married.

2. “You should wait until you graduate college.”

...sometimes I’m not even sure how to respond to this. Since when does having a husband make me any less able to attend class?

3. “You know people who get married that young tend to divorce, right?"

Calm down. You really think my age is going to get in the way of true love? HA.

4. “You’re not financially stable enough.”

Come on people. I know having a husband can be A LOT like having a kid, but it’s still not the same.

5. “I hope this is going to be a long engagement.”

Maybe it will be. Maybe it won’t be. Whether I decide to get married tomorrow or a year from now, I’m going to be ready.

6. “Is your mom okay with this?”

First of all, I AM AN ADULT.

Second of all, yes my mom knows about this because no matter how old I am, I’m still a little scared of her.

7. “My husband and I didn’t get married until we were 27.”

Awesome. I’m getting married at 19. I still am failing to see the difference here??

8. “Are you sureeeeeeee he’s the one?”

I can assure you that I have never been so sure of something in my entire life. I am marrying the man who cares for me, supports me, and loves me with all of his heart. He is the kindest and most selfless man that I have ever met. And I am the luckiest woman in the entire world to have not wasted too much of my life by being without him.

I guess what I’m really trying to say here, is just to leave them be. If a couple is happy and Excited to be getting married, then be happy for them! If it doesn’t work out, then that can be taken care of later. Just keep your negativity to yourself and let others live the way that makes them feel whole.

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.
