16 Thoughts You Have As A Bridesmaid

This past weekend, I was a bridesmaid in my cousin's wedding. It was so much fun to be part of her special day and everything that goes into a wedding. So many moments of stress, laughter, excitement and anticipation occur on the day of. Everything from hoping I don't accidentally trip walking down the aisle (you'll be happy to know that I didn't) to relaxing as someone did my hair and makeup, to really hoping my bridesmaid dress still fit after having not tried it on for a couple weeks (probably not the best idea on my part, but I was able to zip myself in).

1. I sure hope I don't trip and make a scene walking down the aisle.

2. Wow, these heels are so uncomfortable. Why did I think wearing these was a good idea?

3. OMG, did you see the groom's face when he saw her walking down the aisle? If my husband doesn't have a good reaction I'm turning around.

4. Ugh, I need to remember this. I totally am stealing this idea for my wedding.

5. What's that? Open bar? HECK YEAH, I'm not going to be able to feel how sore my feet are in no time.

6. When is dinner because I am ravenous.

7. Oooo, they're cutting the cake! I wonder if he'll shove a piece in her face or just feed her a little piece. It'd be so funny if he did shove it in her face... but if he gets it on her dress he is SO dead.

8. I haven't tried this dress on in weeks I sure hope it still fits.

9. I feel stressed and I'm not even the one getting married.

10. I hope they have a basket of comfy sandals for dancing because there is no way I can keep these heels on a second longer.

11. Boys are so lucky. They get to wear pants and a shirt and here we are in tight dresses, painful heels and a super uncomfortable bra.

12. This is great. I wish someone would come and do my hair and makeup for me every morning.

13. I really need to find another occasion to wear this dress at, because I look...

14. I can't wait to take so many cute pictures with everyone (and of course some bathroom mirror selfies)

15. I hope no one here is judgmental because. . .

16. What's that? More drinks? Yes, please.

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.
