An Open Letter to The "Good Girl"

I know this life seems to suck but it gets so much better.

An Open Letter to The "Good Girl"

Yeah, I know, this life sucks... Or so it seems.

It seems that everyone is always having more fun than you because they are doing the bad worldly things. You can never make it just one week without being dissed for that fact that you choose to make good reputable choices, or go without just one occurrence of being called a "goody goody". You're always being picked on and prodded towards making just one bad mistake, to just smoke one hit or at least just say one cuss word. It seems like the choice that you've made to be the good kid always comes to bite you in the butt.

I know this, I know these feelings and I know how to get through it because I was the "good girl" too.

I know it's hard and you get your feelings hurt or your heart broken. I know that sometimes you just want to be invisible. Let me just tell you, being the "good girl" may suck now but give it until you're out of high school. Those decisions will make you who you are and who you are after being the "good girl" is the "good woman" that everyone admires.

Yeah, you've probably already lost all of your friends and feel pretty invisible unless someone is picking on you for being "too good". You have probably already begged your parents to let you move to a different school or even a different city or state. But guess what? That's not going to fix anything because there are mean people everywhere. Trust me, I've been there.

Those people, who are ruining their lives while reaching their peak in high school, will one day be taking your order at the local Mickey D's or working as your personal assistant. Those people that are currently making your life seem like a dramatic teenager's idea of "Hell on Earth" will be balding with beer guts sitting in some bar watching the football game with the bartender. You have so much going for you that they have ruined for themselves through these decisions.

So, how do you get through this terrible time of your life? Well, obviously my most obvious answer is God because I would never have made it without him. Make new friends, those old friends that you lost because you chose to be good, weren't friends at all. Surround yourself with people who have values like your own. Pray. Pray, pray, pray. Last but not least, always believe that you are not just a "goody-goody" but someone paving a path for amazing success.

Trust me, I know that right now it seems that your life sucks. But, I promise, it's only just the beginning of a great life ahead.

Your friend,

The "Good Girl" turned "Good Woman"

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.
