An open letter to the man that cheated on me

You aren't the man I fell in love with anymore...

An open letter to the man that cheated on me

Have you ever finished a book? Or finished a TV series? You know the feeling of aimlessness, not knowing what to do now that it's over? You fell in love with the fictional characters that were never real? That how I felt when I first found out you cheated. I fell in love with a man that never existed to begin with. You, yourself, along with anything that came out of your mouth was a lie. I will never talk down on you like you did to me, but just know, you didn't deserve how I treated you. You told being I was a bad girlfriend, but we both know that was a lie so other girls would think of me as a bad person. The truth is, I gave you everything, I helped you take your big step toward success, and this is where I say my goodbye. But before I say goodbye, there are a couple things you must know.

First of all, thank you:

Thank you for showing me how capable I am of loving someone

Thank you for helping me figure out what I really deserve

Thank you for showing me I should love myself more than I love a boy

Thank you for making me happy, regardless of how things ended.

Thank you for making me try new things, making new friends, and seeing different perspectives on life

Secondly, I'll pray for you:

I will pray you find someone you love, and love enough to stay faithful to

I will pray you stay on your path to success and achieve what you know you can achieve

And finally, I am not sorry:

Even though I thank you for so many things and pray for you, I realize it wasn't my fault for your doing. I will not be sorry for how I truly treated you.

I am not sorry for loving you

I am not sorry for the words that came out of my mouth in anger

I am not sorry for being hurt and needing time to heal

I am not sorry that you lost me, because that was the moment I found myself.

So, for the man I fell in love with and loved dearly, whoI thought I'd live the rest of my life with, this is for you. I lived for us for as long as I can remember, and only recently I've learned I need to live for myself. Thank you for setting me free.

This is goodbye to our past. I hope you find what you deserve in life.

With love,

the girl who knows what she deserves

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.

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.
