You have become the dream I want to wake up from.

In the beginning, I felt hopeful and happy. I adored your creativity, your ability to inspire, and your strong moral code.

I enjoyed the support you rendered unconditionally, the pleasant surprises, and everything else you did. It felt comforting and heavenly to be loved and in love.

The good times never seem to last. Something went missing along the way, or it could have been a whole list of things which accumulated over time that were not addressed. Right now, everything feels strained, painful, and draining.

For the past few weeks, I have been reevaluating what I wanted in life and how you will fit in. It didn’t help when I told you how I was feeling and you went all passive-aggressive about it.

I have tried my best to bring…

If I decide to write about you and I actually do, it is because of the following reasons:

1. I am extremely mad at you and this is revenge!

Power does not solely lie in the barrel of the gun, but in the wrath of a woman.

2. You must have made quite an impression…

and I can’t get you out of my mind. To write about you is to free up storage space so I’ll have more memory space for useful information, whatever that may be.

3. I can’t find a better (at present) candidate to write about.

Whether or not you agree on the above, the damage is done. People will read about you, and you might want to thank me if you ever chance upon this.

It is funny how each time I struggle to let something or someone…

Be crazy. Guys love it when your hair is long and wild, and you swear at them in Spanish and shoot a gun at them like Penelope Cruz in Vicky Christina Barcelona. But also don’t be crazy. Guys hate it when you’re irrational, unpredictable and emotional. Be stable, easy to read and low maintenance. Be Meg Ryan in any movie. Have perfect lips but don’t get your lips “done”, and go blonde but not too blonde.

Be sexy. Be like Kate Upton with big boobs and a bedroom smile. Guys love it when you show off your body in tight clothes. Flaunt yourself with confidence. But don’t dress too provocatively. Guys hate it when you look slutty, they’ll never take you seriously. Be demure and respectable, look like someone’s mother or a girl who runs an adorable local florist with big bangs like Zooey Deschanel.

Have a perfect body. Guys…

Cheers to all the couples out there who’ve made it throughout the years of college, but to the freshman out there who think it’s time to hitch a ride on the relationship bandwagon, here’s 10 reasons why you should reconsider.

1. TIME: This is your time. It’s your chance to morph from being nobody in High School to a full blown socialite in your college years. A relationship is going to tie you down. You don’t need to split your time between canoodling and hitting all the social events.

2. YOU’RE YOUNG: Your life is just about to start. You have plenty of time in the future to be tied at the hip to someone but for now, just relax and enjoy your first year stress free.

3. SPACE: You don’t want a guy or girl holding you back from hitting a party or joining a sorority. Being in…

So you are a smart, intelligent, talented person with great credentials and qualifications, and you are a star performer at your firm but when it comes to the cutthroat job market, you just don’t get the calls. You have a resume and you forward it to several people but clearly no one seems to be interested in you and you don’t seem to understand why. You see people with lesser credentials scoring job offers left, right, and center. If you read like a perfect candidate on paper, why wouldn’t people call you?

I have seen it from all three perspectives: the one who never got the calls, the one who started getting too many calls and the one who sat on the other end of the table hiring for one of the big four consulting firms in the world. A resume is your identity, it is the only thing that…

Date a man who loves you more. Meet him young, at a time when you’re not old enough to realize how precious he is. Fall in love carelessly. Start to think he must be the one, begin building a life with him. Become entangled with his family and him with yours, believe he will be the father of your children in later years. Date a man who loves you more because he will love everything you hate about yourself. The man who loves you more will rub your feet when you’re tired and take your cousins out for ice cream because he is simply that kind of man. He will abandon his plans to come rub your back when you’re sick without you ever having to ask. The man who loves you more will allow you to grow as a person without taking space. He will be…

Viola (absent for some time)Viola (absent for some time)

We’ve all either shamefully been in or distressingly watched early teenage relationships. The ones where the two people are constantly hanging all over each other, breaking up and getting back together all during study hall, and telling each other “I love you” every waking second of the day. These kinds of couples exist in the society we live in today more than ever before.

This “love” that these middle school children claim to be feeling is really an infatuation. It’s the first time a person of the opposite gender, without any familial relation, really showed any interest in them and that’s very exciting. However, to put the label of ” in love” on these puberty-ridden rugrats is just incorrect.

You can absolutely love someone you’re in a relationship with without being in love with them. So many of my friends have been in several relationships…
