"The Bachelor": Was Zach The Real Problem During His And Rachel's Fantasy Suite?
Following a chaotic last season of “The Bachelorette”, it’s been refreshing to see a bachelor who doesn’t tolerate drama. Or at least it was at first. As things are progressing, it’s becoming more and more evident that Zach’s drama avoidance may actually be a conflict avoidance; naturally leading to speculation that his disastrous private time with Rachel may not have been entirely her fault.

Of course drama is a major aspect of the reality romance franchise, creating buzz among viewers while also weeding out bad matches. One of the biggest shocks we can recall from Gabby and Rachel’s season was Zach’s heartbroken response to his fantasy suite with Rachel, claiming she was a completely different person than he thought. The plot twist, while serving to make us all question what could’ve possibly happened between the two, also secured his fate as the next Bachelor.

At the beginning of Zach’s experience it was a relief to see that someone could actually be doing this for the right reasons. Any drama brought to his attention was immediately addressed and the person at the root sent home. However, what seemed like a Bachelor Nation dream-come-true quickly took a turn. A red flag pattern emerged in which showing opposition to Zach or asking for validation meant being shown the door. From Greer getting shamed in her attempt to relate with and comfort him to Jess receiving flack for simply wanting a real date with her potential future husband. As everything is getting more serious and emotions running higher, the problem only appears to be escalating.

Obviously, no one other than Zach and Rachel ever will know what really went down on that infamous evening. But given all that we’ve seen so far of Zach as Bachelor, it certainly makes you wonder.

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.
