Aw, little Tuckie Wuckie is finally 21! No more watching all your friends go to the bar without you on the weekends. House parties are a thing of the past! I'm so excited to hear your first bar stories, and possibly a getting arrested because of a bar fight story. Just kidding, don't do that. (Also, you know you can have a lot of fun being sober at a bar, too!)

Last year around this time, I don't think I fully processed what you had gone through just a few months before. I don't remember much of your birthday from last year, or if you were even walking around that time. I was just so thankful you made it to 20. Healing both physically and mentally hasn't come easy for you, but you've proven your strength so many times. I think I'm more thankful for you making it to 21 than I was for 20.

I hope you have the best birthday ever. Keep being the strong kid we all know you are and don't let anyone bring you down. Anyway, behave and I love you, Tucker Anne!

P.S. Arizona has some really cool places to hang out so maybe you should move here?

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.

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.
