A Letter To The New Me

It's time for a change.

A Letter To The New Me

Dear New Me,

I want you to know that it is time to start living the way that you want and desire. Forget what people think, say, or do. In the end, all that matters is you.

We have come a long way these past few years; from heartbreaks to failures, we have gone through it all. There were times when you let yourself be taken advantage of, talked down to, or humiliated. I want you to know that those days are officially over.

Look how you have grown and transformed. Nobody could ever say that you went through hell and back for those you loved and cared for.

I want you to start looking after yourself even more now. I want you to live free, unapologetically happier, and without worries. I want you to continue to fight every day and to get sh•t done.

I also want you to put yourself first before anybody else on this Earth. No man is worth stressing over and you have to love yourself more than you ever love someone else.

Be sure to stick with those that are loyal to you and your time. Those who are happy when you are happy, those who cry with you during your worst moments. Please do yourself a favor and ditch anybody that comes your way who only comes by to disturb your peace of mind. Be with those who uplift you when you cannot do so yourself.

I want you to love with your whole heart and never be afraid to let the right one in.

Do not ever be afraid to stand up for yourself in times of injustice. And don't ever be afraid to raise your voice when you feel like you are listened to. (Of course, figuratively, never literally. That's how you lose the argument.)

Take time to nourish your soul, to talk to yourself nicely, to read new books, travel, go out for a walk. But most importantly, do what makes you and your soul happy.

I hope you continue to find yourself in the midst of this world and that you continue to better yourself. Please do yourself a favor and learn from your mistakes; with this, you'll grow wiser.


The Old Me.

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.
