7 Thank-Yous For The Best Friend Back Home You're Missing More Than Ever

Being away at college can get really hard sometimes but what makes it even harder is being far away from your closest friends and family. Some days when you just need someone to talk to that really knows you, it can make you feel completely alone. I’ve had a few of these days lately that left me missing my best friend back home more than you can imagine.

So, to that wonderful best friend, I want to thank you for your amazing friendship and all these things that you do for me.

Thank you for…

1. Letting me vent

We both know I get a little carried away about certain things (mostly the same things over and over again) but you always listen patiently and to be listened to is such an amazing feeling.

2. Supporting my passions

I’ve worked so hard on my photography and my writing and you show equal pride in me. I could tell you I want to become a competitive knitter and you would stand by me.

3. Always being up for a beach trip

As one of those people that is always excited to go do things when other people would rather hang out at home, thank you for always wanting to go do things with me, beach trips, days at universal, mall trips and days when we’ve done all of the above are why I love you

4. Coming whenever I need you (even if you are a little late)

You would drive the ten hours between us at the drop of a hat if I needed you too and I know that. Although you are late to literally everything it’s what makes you you and I love that too.

5. Buying as much as me when we go shopping

We both go a little overboard when we go shopping but the crazy things we spend money on are half the reason we work so well.

6. Showing me that it’s okay to be a sweet girl

In a world where the idea of being a badass is valued above being a nice person, you show me that you can, in fact, be both, and you do it so beautifully.

7. Making me feel comfortable

Most of all, thank you for making me feel like I can always be my silly, anxious, weird, intense self without any judgment because you’ll always love me no matter what.

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.
