An Open Letter To My Person In Heaven

Dear loved one,

Plain and simple; I miss you.

It's hard to think about how many milestones we have already been through and are going to be celebrating without you. Birthdays, holidays, college acceptance letters and graduations from High School are just a few. I still find myself picking up the phone to call you when something important or even something silly happens. You're the first person I want to tell everything to—everything.

Whether it's an exciting call about a job or an internship or to vent about people who hurt me, you were always the first one to know. I bet some people even felt out of the loop when they were around us because we could reach each other with ease. Most of the time, I didn't even have to specify what I was feeling for you to understand it. We knew each other that well.

Ironically enough, the only one I want to talk to about how much my heart aches when I think about you not being around anymore is you.It's crazy to think that I can't just show up to your house and find you sitting in your room. Often times, you'll hear people tell you to, “Appreciate the little things, because they become the big things." I wish I realized that when you were still here.

Despite this, I still smile cheek-to-cheek when I look at photos of you and I. The sounds of your laughter are permanently etched into my mind. I will never forget what hugging you felt like—it made me feel safe and at home. Your open arms and loving smile are truly what I miss most.

You are always going to be the first person I think of when I wake up in the morning and the last person on my mind when I go to sleep at night. You still impact so many members of our family and all of your friends.

Every lesson, story, and memory is a treasure that will be safely kept in our minds and shared with the people who love and miss you most. Take care of all of our friends and family who have come to join you. We love and miss you dearly and not a day shall pass where we don't think about you.

With love,

The one who misses you most

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.
