9 Reasons Why I Love Rachel Berry

No, it's not just because her mom is played by Idina Menzel.

9 Reasons Why I Love Rachel Berry

1) She has such big dreams.

Ever since she was a little girl she knew that she would be something big. One of my favorite quotes from her is, “‘You might laugh because every time I sign my name I put a gold star after it, but it’s a metaphor, and metaphors are important. My gold stars a metaphor for me being a star.

2) She knows what she wants and is willing to do whatever it takes to get there.

Take NYADA for example, she wasn’t going to take no for an answer when she choked on her audition and I think that was very brave of her (which is something I took away from that), she believed that she deserved another chance and she got it.

3) She takes her stardom very seriously.

But I mean, who wouldn't?

4) Shelby

I think having Shelby involved in Rachel’s life was something important to her growth as a character/person. Having her around made Rachel more able to do things she didn’t think that she could. With the love and support of her mother she soared to new heights. ((And hello, what better choice could they have made by casting Idina Menzel???))

5) Being apart of something special makes you special.

This was something that was so important for me because I’m kind of an outsider and I really related to Rachel in the sense that nobody truly understood her and what she stood for, so when this was said, as you can imagine middle school me totally cried. And of course I still think about it a lot, it’s mostly about inclusion and wanting to be accepted by those around me.

6) Being front and center is everything, never let anyone tell you otherwise.

Need I say more?

7) She's So Confident

She’s the best and she isn’t afraid to tell you.

8) Her support system that she builds.

I think that a support system is the most important aspect of any form of success and the fact that over the years Rachel has accumulated so much positive reinforcement (but there has been negative along the way too, must I bring up the endless slushies to the face?). All slushies aside, the most important thing to have is people who believe in you, pushing you to do the best that you can.

9) She’s proof that no matter where you start out, no matter what you go through in life, you can become anything.

Whether you’re from a small town in Ohio or live three blocks away from Times Square, if you want to be on Broadway, you can do it no matter what. If you can dream it, you can do it. Everything that has ever happened in this world, someone has said, "no, that’s a dumb idea." Don’t let something like that throw you off. You are your own person and if you want to be a star, you better shine brighter than ever.

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.
