An Appreciation Letter To My Grandmother

No love compares to the love we share and that is so special to me.

An Appreciation Letter To My Grandmother
Jo Ann Rosa

Dear Grandma,

I know you may never actually read this even if I post it to your Facebook wall. I do give you a lot of credit for welcoming the new age of technology with an open mind despite the struggles you have with sending a simple email.

I want to take a moment to tell you how important you are to me and what an impact you have made on my life. Yes, I have had lots of influences and amazing role models to admire, but you are different. There is just something about the bond of a grandchild and their grandmother. Something so special that finding the words to explain it seem nearly impossible. It is not visible or tangible, but it is such an overwhelming feeling of love and admiration. So much so that your heart is on the verge of overflowing with endless amounts of love.

From a young age I watched you sing to flowers and talk to animals in the yard, simple and yet silly things that were in their own way so beautiful. Home cooked dinners and cookies made from scratch always tasted better when they were from you. You would swear you added a secret ingredient but we could never guess what it was. Now that I’m much older I know what that ingredient was: LOVE.

You teach me life lessons and family secret recipes. Although my cakes will never quite be like yours and my knitted scarfs are always lopsided I have fun making them with you. Some may say I’m an old lady for loving the time I spend with an 80 year old, but I don’t mind. I’d say you’re rather hip for your age. Never has an elder women taken a better selfie than you and your modern vocabulary is very fleeky.

Growing up with you has been a total blessing and I am and always will be forever grateful for that. You showed me the beauty in the little things and taught me to accept the things that weren’t always so beautiful. When life made me face hardships you reminded me that I was not alone. You held both my hand and my heart through some of the best and worst days of my life.

I love you and appreciate you more than you will ever know. No love compares to the love we share and that is so special to me.

Love always,

Your Granddaughter

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.
