To All The Cheaters Out There

I'll never understand why you do what you do. Why you talk to multiple people at once. Invest your time in them. Make them think you've invested emotions in them. Allow them to get attached to you knowing damn well you're going to walk away in the next few weeks. It's disturbing to me because I could never do the same. Maybe you think it's the cool thing to do. Or maybe you just like the attention. I'll never know because none of you are honest with yourselves or others.

I was talking to a guy recently who I grew to trust. Only to find out I should've never trusted him at all. He exposed his true self late one night when he decided to put the girl he claimed was his best friend in the same room as me. We got to talking, or better yet her best friend got to insulting me, and I ended up finding out he had been cheating on her for months. I felt disgusted both with myself and with him. I couldn't believe he had put either one of us through that. He didn't seem to care though. In fact, he didn't care at all. The only thing he wanted from me the day after he put me through hell was his money back for a concert we were supposed to go together.

I'm not hurt, just confused. He did an amazing job of lying to me about his feelings and probably his whereabouts. I started to get suspicious toward the end and ask questions he clearly answered falsely. I should've accepted the warning signs that he was using me sooner rather than later. When we went out, we almost always paid separately. I was always the one driving because he supposedly doesn't have a car. When he did for two days though, he didn't tell me. He would barely look at his phone when we were together and when he did he'd angle it away from me.

I guess I didn't want to believe another guy I was interested in had disappointed me. I know what he did isn't my fault. If I had known, I never would have been involved with him. It went down the way it did and I can only grow from here on out. I'd just like to know one thing. Is this going to keep happening?

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.

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.
