An Open Letter To My Friends Graduating

Before you head off to graduation, I just have a few words for all of you.

An Open Letter To My Friends Graduating

A few of my friends that I've made at UNCG during my undergrad career are graduating this upcoming Thursday. I'm sure you've dreamed of this day. Some of you are afraid because you have no idea what you're going to be doing after graduation. Some of you have a job already waiting for you. Some of you are just ready to stop going to classes and leave Greensboro, which is completely understandable.

I'll start off by saying congratulations! I'm so proud of all of you and I know whatever you do after UNCG, you'll be amazing at it. I have learned so much from each of you and I've had the best times with you. Each of you are special, intelligent, unique and extraordinary human beings in your own way and I have no doubt that you will change the world with your amazing abilities.

Brandon, you are the sweetest man with the biggest heart. You are funny without even trying and everybody knows you. I am so happy to have met you and been able to be in an organization with you before you graduate. You can dress your tail off, and sometimes I wish you could just be my stylist and dress me everyday. I'm really going to miss you, your laugh, your style, your strength, and you being the one to make fun of Deion with me. I love you so much, and you finally made it out of "skewl"! I'm so proud of you boo.

Cynthia, Lord. I'm really going to miss you. I remember auditioning for DH, and you telling me not to be scared and to just sing. I remember you teaching us songs and directing. I'm never going to forget you saying "Amen, amen!" or your crying face when you really feel the Spirit. I remember being shocked watching Snapchat and seeing you become a beautiful member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. You're so laid back yet so feisty and so intelligent. You are such a strong person, and after all you've been through you continue to grow and become even stronger. I'm so excited for you and your future, and I cannot wait to see what you do after UNCG. I'm going to miss you so much, and I'm extremely proud of you for reaching this milestone in your life.

Caleb! You. Are. Funny. You've done it all. You've been a president of organizations, worked jobs on and off campus, and you make time for not only your social life but time for God as well. You're a strong person who goes after what he wants and makes sure he gets it, even if it's extremely hard. You are super funny, smart, and you don't take mess off of anybody. You are truly the epitome of a man who works hard, serves his community, and does extraordinary things. I'm so proud of you, and I wish you the best in all that you do.

To all of you, I love you so much. I am extremely proud of you, and I will miss you. You all have impacted my life in ways that you don't even know. You have showed me what it is to be a leader, a servant of the community, a good student, a good person overall, and most importantly, a true worshipper for the Lord. Thank you so much for all you've done, and congratulations on graduation! You made it! Go out and change the world, and may God continue to bless each of you.

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.
