An Open Letter To My Hairstylist, Thank You For Everything You Do

You are so much more than someone who just does my hair.

While some people think a hairdresser's job only entails cutting and styling hair, they miss out on everything you have to offer. You are more than your work. You are more than the things people say about you. You are more than you see yourself. You are so much more than you will ever know. Your work not only gives me a sense of style, but also a boatload of confidence, a feeling of reinvention, a love for myself. And not just because my hair looks great, but because of the person you have dug deep to find within myself.

You have walked with me through so many hard things in my life. We have cried together, laughed together, and most importantly, grown together. You're not just an Aveda artist, you are an inspiration to my life. You have taught me that I can walk through the most difficult things in life with grace and humility. You have shown me that while people may throw their baggage on you and walk over you, that it's never too late to rise up and stand up for yourself.

Even the hardest of things I don't want to share, you see through the window of my soul and give me a sense of understanding. While you have so much on your plate, your month booked out and spending time with your family, you somehow manage to always be there for the people who need you most. You never complain and you find the goodness in people who are so hard to love at times. You have modeled to me what it means to be a holistic professional. So, to my hairstylist, my confidant, my therapist, my spiritual guide, and my friend, thank you for all the roles you play and the way you take them on with grace and humility.

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.
