To The Soon To Be College Graduate

Dear soon-to-be College Graduate,

I'm proud of you. You've worked so hard and have accomplished so much. In just a couple months you'll be a college graduate. How cool is that?

Remember kindergarten graduation? Remember those elementary school days when it seemed like your turn to be on the "big kid" side of the building would never come? Then it finally came and quickly went. Before you knew it you were starting high school. Senior year came and you began to realize just how quickly time really goes. You spent hours upon hours searching for the perfect college.You looked into what each school had to offer, possible majors, financial aid, and perhaps also if you would be able to continue your sport.

By May, you had made your decision. While you may not have been set on a major, you had committed to a school to call your new home.

Now, 3, 4, 5, or even 6+ years later, you sit in nearly the same spot. This time, however, the applications are for grad school or potential jobs. It's an exciting, yet overwhelming time. You are figuring out where you want to spend the next part of your life and how you want to use your degree.

The interview process can be intimidating. It's easy to second guess yourself and think no one will hire you because you are new and don't have as much experience. However, the truth is that anyone would be lucky to have you. Your character is impeccable, overflowing with kindness and enthusiasm, so believe in yourself and go get the job of your dreams.

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.
