An Open Letter To Me

I hope you're doing okay.

An Open Letter To Me
My Style and Stuff Blog

Dear Future Me,

First and foremost, I hope you’re doing fine. I hope you have an amazing career as a writer (and potentially as a novelist). I hope your writing has inspired people to become a writer like you. I hope that you’re a good influence on aspiring writers and that they love your work. I hope your novels will be enjoyed years from now, even if you feel like they were going to eventually be forgotten.

You have probably come farther than what you ever expected to. That’s always important to remember. That does not necessarily mean that you are successful or making heaping amounts of money. It just means that you are comfortable in your own skin and continue to feel that way, no matter what.

It’s OK that you may or may not have everything figured out yet. That’s what making mistakes and taking chances are for. I hope made many of mistakes and took every chance you saw fit. I hope you followed your heart with every important decision you made.

I hope you found inner peace. I hope you’re stronger, smarter, and braver than your old self (you know, me, I already know you will be.) You have a better way of handling the negativity in your life, so unfriending those in your life who consistently bring you down will be easier.

I hope you still hope and you haven’t stopped dreaming. I hope you haven’t let the world change you and you still have a smile on your face.

Most importantly, I hope you’re happy and that you continue to be for the rest of your life.

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.
