10 Things We Forget To Thank Our Parents For
Kelsey Simeone

From the time we are little, we always can depend on our parents for anything and everything. Whether this be teaching us how to ride a bike, or sending us a care package up at school, they're always there for us. They're the first people we call when something goes wrong, when we've messed up big time or even when we've received really exciting news. Mom and Dad answer the phone no matter what time, no matter where they are. Because we can always count on them, we take them for granted. Here are 10 things we forget to thank our parents for:

1. For always forgiving us.

No matter how bad we mess up or how many stupid things we do, they're always the first to forgive us.

2. For teaching us the most valuable life lessons.

Anywhere from "you can only change yourself" to "every dog has their day," the most valuable things we learn come from mom and dad.

3. For always being on our side.

Taylor Swift said it best: "I knew you were on my side even when I was wrong."

4. For helping us chase our dreams.

No matter how big or small.

5. For always being just a phone call away.

Whether is 11 pm or 6 am, mom or dad always answer within the first few rings.

6. For being our main supporters.

No matter what dream we're chasing, we can always count on mom and dad to support us no matter what.

7. For shaping us into who we are.

We wouldn't be who we are without you.

8. For teaching us right from wrong.

9. For giving the best advice.

10. For loving us unconditionally.

Mom and Dad, a million thank you's would never be enough.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
