Your Boyfriend's Girl Friends

I think I can speak for all girls when I say that most of us have friends that are guys who we would never, ever, ever have any romantic interest in. Whether it be by choice or not, they have been friend-zoned so badly that you know nothing would ever happen. They are your good friend who happens to be a guy! Well guess what? Guys have girl friends just like we do, who are never leaving the friend zone no matter what.

When you're in a committed relationship, after a long enough period of time, your partner (hopefully) becomes your best friend. It's the two of you against the world through all the highs and lows. However, just because you are each other's best friend, that doesn't mean you can't have other friends, too, even if they're of the opposite sex. I think this is when girls get a little hypocritical because we get jealous and territorial. We mention our guy friends to our boyfriend every now and then asking, "Why did he do this? Will he like this outfit? How do I bring this up?" as well as other questions we can fearlessly ask. But when your boyfriend says he's going to hang out with this chick he's been friends with for years and you're like, "Uhm, no? Who is dis chick?" You need to put those insecurities aside and realize your man has friends that are girls other than you, and that is perfectly okay. You should be concerned if he doesn't!

If you are confident in your relationship and trust your partner, you should be okay with each other having friends of the opposite sex. It's healthy, socially normal, and needed to keep a balance in your life. I mean, don't be oblivious to obvious signs something else is going on, but don't become mopey and pouty if your guy wants to get lunch with a friend who happens to be a girl. Be confident in the foundation you have! You have your guy friends. So, let your boyfriend have his girl friends. I'm not saying you have to be totally elated about it, it's just something to be accepted. A little jealousy can be healthy, but not when it's unwarranted. Trying to isolate your man from women in general is just going to drive a resentful wedge between the two of you and chip away at your trust and confidence.

Your boyfriend loves you. You are his number one girl and you shouldn't question that. Having confidence in your relationship reaps so many benefits. Be confident and don't question your partner, let them have their girl friends! They'll appreciate you more and feel lucky to call you their own.

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.

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.
