"Will I ever be good enough?

Background Watcher Of Love: A Poem

I see all these couples around me

their love radiating so big

laughter so loud

I can't hear my thoughts

he kisses her with so much passion

the sun becomes a spotlight

that shines on only them

I sit in the back all alone

no company but my lovable phone

and I'm suddenly thinking to myself

"Why can't I have that?"

My friends sit around me

talking about their past, future,

and wannabe lovers

only I can't relate

because boys only see me as

"Too nice" or

"Not good enough"

I'm forever sitting in the back

watching the action go on

but never taking part

too scared of what people will think

because of a boy who said

that I wasn't good enough

My friends ask for my opinion

but all i can offer is shrugged shoulders

with mumbles of "I don't know"

and I'm suddenly thinking to myself

"Why can't I relate to my friends about boys?"

he asks me for my number

innocently flirting with me

leading me on into his heart

only to turn around and ask me

"Who's your friend? She's cute."

suddenly my confidence is gone

heart broken into pieces

and my throat choked up

as I think to myself

"Will I ever be good enough?"

but I trudge on

forever hoping that one day

a boy will love me

and cherish me for my worth

kiss my lips

make me smile

see me as his whole damn world

because I am worth everything

I am not a penny

but a dollar

I'm worth more than the boy

who said that I wasn't

his pride and joy

I am good enough

to deserve love

even if I can't see that now

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.

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.
