Poetry On Odyssey: As The Snow Fell

An original poem written as the seasons change so rapidly. May you find comfort within it all no matter how winter makes you feel.

Poetry On Odyssey: As The Snow Fell

Hey readers!

I wanted to write something short about the change of seasons. Our first snow fall happened not too long ago, and it seems that autumn only visited us a short moment. While I love personifying, I do hope this piece brings hope during such a seasonal change. If you dislike or even love winter (or if snow is never seen for you at all!), may you be comforted nonetheless. Happy first snow fall!

As the snow fell, so did the spirit

Heavy and burdened with sorrow

There was nothing that could compare to how it chilled the heart

Mimicking every part of the frozen bits around

As the snow fell, so did the eyes

On the ground they gazed

Lingering too long and aching to see the sky

As the snow fell, so did the leaves

Never having the chance to fully embrace the transition

Of being red, gold, and yellow from green

No sliver of warmth in between

How it feels to see the winter in its welcoming glance

One moment, a flashing hope of something to come

But even if the winter isn't for everyone,

If it's spent within the cold chill

Or your winters are considered those under the hot sun

May it make you feel content

But only for a moment

May it make you feel eager for the change in season yet to come

The endless possibilities awaiting the present

Can still be beautiful if you let it

As the snow fell, so did

The hope that autumn would stick around

It was fleeting, and the greeting small

It made an appearance, and it promised to come back next year

But don't shy away from what the winter has to offer you

A chance to reflect on what you want for the new year

A chance to settle in all of what you did accomplish this year

The opportunity to freeze over everything that you no longer need in the warmer months

For those are the things, that like the snow, fell away from your heart

As the snow fell, so did the sadness

For only a brighter day is waiting for you to start

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.
