Being Enough

Whether you choose to be a light breeze or a tsunami, you are enough

Being Enough

Everyone should be told they’re more than enough

They should be told that they can be a storm if they want to

That they can be a downpour of greatness if they desire

That they can flood the streets and tear houses down

That they are capable of mass destruction

Everyone should be told they can do this with their words

Maybe then people would watch what they say

Maybe then people would speak up more

Knowing your words can impact someone or something so heavily

That would make everyone think twice

How they greet someone

How they express their love

How they talk about themselves

How they talk about others

But we don’t tell our kids how powerful they are

How their words can bring down buildings

How they’re capable of much more than the jobs their 9th grade teacher said they’d be good at

Tell them to stop thinking practically and realistically

Show them what it means to really think outside the box

To have crazy ideas and to try and achieve them

Not just dream about them

Teach them they are bigger than their names

Teach them they are storms

Teach them that they can be hurricanes

Teach them that love is homemade and

They deserve all the love in the world

Show them it’s easy to smile and

Happiness can last more than just a while

Show them they can achieve the things they didn’t think possible

That whatever they choose to do is enough

Whether they want to be a drizzle and a breeze

Or lightening and hail

They are 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.

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.
