An Open Letter To The Big Dreamer

We chase dreams that are unrealistic sometimes.

An Open Letter To The Big Dreamer

Have you ever been told your dreams are unrealistic? Or, the choices you make in the career you choose will greatly effect you? In this world, not many of us are taken seriously because we are chasing dreams rather than looking over tests that require us to take the time we have in school seriously. What we don't know is that it's ok to chase after dreams, but to also have a clear conscious when meeting at the turning lane of where to go next.

In this world, we're told to do our best, but sometimes our best isn't enough. To the dreamers out there, don't be afraid to reach your goals; no matter how unrealistic. Set up a game plan to get yourself there. It helps to have GPS where ever your dream is. Be the big dreamer you've always been, set those goals and make yourself run to that finish line. Come graduation day, when some have an idea of where they're going, what would be your calling? Where would you go and what would you do?

With those careers that are unrealistic and hard to come by, it can seem like it is oceans away. It seems close, but it truly isn't, unless you have connections and money to make yourself known. It's hard to make it anywhere, even as a doctor, lawyer, and president. Making it in Congress is even hard. Every career you set your mind to, it's going to be hard. There are no easy routes to take in order to get to the dream you've had growing up.

Reaching a goal is important because of the sense of relief that comes with the realization that you've finished a task that has taken a while to finish. The realization of achieving a goal is so rewarding because it gives you that feeling of accomplishment. The excitement that comes with wanting something is a feeling only those who want to be successful get

If you truly seek to be the next doctor, lawyer, or even entertainer, set a game plan. Don't feel bad if you don't make it right away, it happens with time. Without a game plan, our world would not be what it is today.

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.
