To A Special Car From A First Year College Student

A love like no other.

To A Special Car From A First Year College Student
Aaron Doss

Dear Alice,

Your name is becoming—you are a wonderland.

That being said, I write to you from the seat of a University bus, because I have come to the realization of how gravely I took advantage of you when you were mine.

I miss the way you always knew exactly what I needed. Whenever I was cold, you were there with a sweater in your backseat. Whenever I got hungry, you always provided me with a snack that was hidden away in some compartment. Whenever I was short a few bucks, you always offered up a plethora of coins for me to choose from—you kept them right there on the floor from me.

You provided a world of freedom for me that is incomparable to anything I have experienced to date. Wherever I wanted to go, you were always up for the trip; you never confined me to a path of your own design. Whenever I wanted to leave, you were ready; you didn't pressure me to some inconvenient schedule. Whoever I wanted to join on us on our adventures, you would gladly allow them to tag along; you never made me cuddle up with any mouth-breathing stranger.

Maybe being apart from you is good for me, because I finally see how much I need you.

When I come back to you, I'll cherish you like no other. I'll spend more time with you. I'll spend so much money to keep you running because that's how much you mean to me.

Above all else, I will fight with every fiber of my being to bring you to me as soon as I can. I'll bring you with me next time, and we will never have to be apart again. We will explore new horizons, together, and finally, my heart will be whole once more.

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.
