8 Reasons I Love My Parents

I consider myself very lucky to have my parents in my life. Without them, I don't know where I'd be. Here's a few reasons I love them so much.

1.) They're my comic relief

My parents are really funny people, both together and on their own. They can make me laugh, no matter what the situation may be. They are very funny people and I don't think I've gone a minute without laughing since I've been home for break, and it's all because of my parents.

2.) They've supported all my various dreams

From cosmetology to culinary to social work, my parents have always been my number one supporters. They went on every college tour with me, went to every dance recital, everything that happened the week of graduation. Anything that I was involved in, big or small, my parents were there.

3.) They've shown me what true love is

Watching my parents as I've grown up, I've gotten to witness what true love really is. It made me realize that I don't know anything about love, but my parents sure do. Whether my dad wants to talk about it or not, he's given me advice from time to time, though it's my mom who is the sole advice giver.

4.) They care about us more than they care about themselves

Every single time I've been sick, my parents would text me every hour to see what my temperature was, what medicine I've taken, etc. My parents have rushed up to USM to bring me a laptop charger because mine stopped working. My parents care about us so much that they drop everything to make sure we're all set.

5.) They make every vacation memorable

Every other year since I was eight months old, my parents have taken us to Disney and every time it was memorable. Even the little trips to visit family in North Carolina were memorable, because we were a family. We were away from the stresses of everyday life and we were able to relax together.

6.) They're the best cat grandparents

I'm so thankful that Sven gets to live with my parents while I'm at school because that means I know he's safe and happy. They treat him like he's their cat (and it gets really awkward when they say they're taking him), but I'm still really glad that such great people are taking care of my little kitty baby.

7.) They're the reason I have a job

..and why I go to work while I'm home. Once I turned 16, my dad made me go get a job and though I typically don't want to go, I'm glad they forced me to get a job and start making my own money.

8.) They love me unconditionally

Like my sister, except more. My parents have always told me from the day I was born how much they love me. There aren't enough words to even begin to explain how grateful I am to have my parents, because they're my rock. Together they give me the motivation to get through every day and every hard time I'm having. Thank you so much, mum and dad, I love you so much.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
