Time To Begin A New Chapter

It's been two months since I graduated from college and I have to say that I'm ready to start the next chapter of my life. I've been waiting to hear back from several places but with everything going on right now due to the coronavirus, it seems like finding a job is going to be more difficult than I wanted. However, I am not going to give up hope and I will continue to apply to jobs that I find interesting.

I met a guy four months ago who was in Tallahassee for work but lives near Tampa. I didn't think it was going to go anywhere but I've made three trips to Tampa and we've met up in Jacksonville twice. It's not an entirely uncomplicated relationship because we're seven years apart and he has a four-year-old son but I really enjoy being around him. I want to see where the relationship will go.

Even though I didn't necessarily want to stay in Florida, I plan on looking for jobs around the Tampa area to be closer to him. I don't know if that's ridiculous because I've only known him for four months but I'm willing to take a chance. He wants me to move in when my lease ends in August but I don't think I'm ready to do that. I think it'd be better to find a place close to him and take it from there.

Since I just graduated from college, I think that I should experience living on my own before living with anyone. I've had college roommates for the past four years and it would be nice to have my own space for once.

The future is mine to shape and I'm ready to see where it takes me. It may go in a different direction than what I imagined but life doesn't always work as planned and that's okay. It's an adjustment but sometimes, you just have to roll with the changes.

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.
