500 Words from A Teenage Girl to Her Mother
Natural Wall paper

Dear Mom,

I hope you know I really hate you sometimes, but while I am hating you, I am loving you. You are the best support system a girl could ever know. Thank you for believing in me all the times no one else did, and for pushing me to be the best version of myself. Although when you are pushing me I sometimes want to push you off a cliff, I know you only want what is best for me.

You know me better than anyone else, and I forget that a lot.

Thank you for always listening to me complain about life, making sure I wake up on time, reminding me when to stop being a bitch and for always reminding me that something better is coming along.

I know that when I tell you something important that no one else is ever going to hear it. No one knows my biggest pet peeves and what makes me the most happy more than you. I always know that anyone who ever hates me is always going to get the hate look from you, and I can always count on you to cheer me up or to let me know when to pull myself together.

Thank you, always for recording my favorite TV show when I forget to, and for sending me recipes of hassleback potatoes on Pinterest. I can always count on you to come up with the most ridiculous food ideas to ever exist.

Thank you for giving me some of your best traits. For giving me the strength to handle anything that life throws at me and for never babying me. You always push me to exceed my full potential and as much as it makes me want to rip my, and your, hair out sometimes, I know I wouldn't be the person I am today without you.

Thank you for giving me the gift of my siblings. I see qualities of you in each of them that never fail to put a smile on my face. When the day comes that you're gone, I know you'll still be around through them. I couldn't imagine my life without my eternal bestfriends. Although some days I dream of it, I couldn't imagine this crazy life without them. I can never repay you for making us so close and creating such a great relationship between us. Thank you for not being that mom that just makes siblings coexist and only do stuff on the holidays or pretend to like each other when Aunt Suzy is coming for the weekend.

I could go on for days about the things you do for me and this family, but I am sure there is some dish in the sink you will go crazy about when you get home. Therefore:

No thank you or action I could say or do could even measure to the number of sacrifices and what you do for our family everyday. Just always know, I would be lost and hungry without you. As I enter one of the biggest chapters and transitions in my life right now, I need you the most. I always promise that I am sorry, and I never mean to hurt you, and yeah, I'll be less of a bitch next time.

With the most love,

Your loving, bitchy teenage daughter

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.

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.
