To Baby Sussex, From Your American Fans

We love you.

Royal Family

Dear Baby Sussex,

While you do not have a name, I am so excited you are here. The whole world has been waiting to meet you after 10 months of being in your mummy's tummy. I wanted to write you a few things even though you may never see this. You have the sweetest parents who are raising you the way they are to bring normality into your life. You are the nephew of the future King of England, so, of course, being in the spotlight can seem like a lot of pressure. However, soon it will be normal enough for you, but it must be hard. Hard to not want to go out alone and constantly have people talking and writing about you.

I know you will have a successful and meaningful life.

Your parents apparently want to give you a sense of normality so you understand how the world really is. Your mother came from humble roots on the opposite coast of America than I was from. Believe in what you want to believe in and find causes meaningful to your heart. It could be on kids, the Alzheimer's Association, clean water for everyone, education...the possibilities are endless.

You will be a cute baby — well, all babies are sort of cute, to be honest. You are going to be such a style icon for babies. In the future when I have kids, perhaps I will look to you for style inspiration. After all, your parents have amazing style. On a personal note, enjoy childhood because it goes by fast and it never comes back. Also, enjoy privacy because the world loves you and will write all about you. I'm so happy your parents live in an enclosed home and want to give you privacy. I couldn't imagine living in a home where I felt trapped and like I was always being watched. Best of luck in life.

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.
