An Open Letter To The Person Who Keeps Being “Too Nice” To Temporary People

Please stop, it’s draining.

If you are like me, you cling to temporary people because you don’t like change. Don’t cling to these people who fail to see your worth only because you don’t want them to leave.

I struggle with this on the daily for real. I am constantly giving disrespectful people a pass because I am “too nice” or maybe I just fail to see my worth, either way it’s not good for our souls.

Please don’t let these people disappear for days/weeks at a time and come back like nothing happened. Please understand that you don’t need any one and that you are fine on your own.

You don’t have to settle for people who don’t text you back or only text you when they need something. Please understand your worth and understand that these people are failing to see that. You don’t have to text them back right away when they decide to come back because you are “nice”, that is not being nice to yourself.

Please don’t make excuses for these people like I have because it will drain you always trying to figure out why they are going ghost or being dry. You need to understand that no one is “too busy” to send a 5 second text.

So if you are like me and struggle with being “too nice” to people aren’t even giving you the time of the day, please read this over and over. Please understand that being alone is way better than wondering why you aren’t “good enough” for someone to text back. Remember your worth and understand that you are always good enough.

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.
