Maybe 2018 Wasn’t Your Year, But 2019 Could Be

It is up to you to take charge of 2019 and make it your year.

Maybe 2018 Wasn’t Your Year, But 2019 Could Be

2018 might have put you through your own personal hell. Maybe, you experienced heartbreak. Maybe, you lost a loved one. Maybe, you experienced something traumatic. Maybe, you felt depressed, worn down, and worthless. Maybe, you were stressed about money, your job, school, or you were dealing with family issues. Whatever it may be, it made 2018 a difficult year for you.

But that doesn't have to be true for 2019. You can control how your 2019 turns out. Or least, have some control. It is up to you to have a positive attitude walking into 2019. It is up to you to find strength in the toughest moments and to move forward when it feels like the world is holding you back. It is up to you to take charge of 2019 and make it your year.

Make 2019 your year. Work hard at your job. Put away some money so that you can continue your education or so that you can travel. Read a book. Start a journal and make it a point to write in it once a week. Try new foods. Take a weekend off and go to the lake. Spend time with your loved ones. Start a new hobby. Learn to knit, or to paint, or take a cooking class. Finish the projects you started. Meet new people. Make new friends. Let 2019 be your year.

Let 2019 be the year that you further improve yourself. Work on your attitude and your outlook on life. Work on improving your health. Take your vitamins. Drink more water. Eat your fruits and vegetables. Go to the gym. Or work out at home. But make it a point to work on your health. Work on improving your faith. Read your bible or start a daily devotional. Start going to church on a consistent basis. Work on learning how to listen to those around you. Work on improving your support system and work to be a support system for those you care about.

Make 2019 your year. Your year to improve you. Your year to grow and be stronger. 2018 put you through your own personal hell, but 2019 is a fresh start. Let 2019 be your year.

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.
