A Love Letter To My Best Friends

I have never thought of myself as a lucky person. I mean, truly I have had many very unlucky things happen in my life. Yet when I think about the amazing people I have in my life, I am anything but unlucky.First, I have my hometown friends, which sounds so weird to say. These people never fail to make me laugh harder than anyone else. I mean, seriously, you would think that they wouldn't be funny after seven years of friendship. Everyone always tells you that friends come and go, but not these ones. I have literally been through thick and thin with them, and I would not change that for a thing. Being away at school is hard but knowing that they'll be there when I get back makes it worth it.

Then there are my work friends. When I first started my job, I had no idea that you could be friends with your coworkers - not just friends but close friends. These people, who I now consider my best friends, that I initially hated due to my mind being just on the paycheck - boy, I could not have been more wrong. I'm not sure how many people can say that they enjoy going to work for the most part, but I can, and it is because of the people I am working alongside. They have become so much more than coworkers to me, and they never fail to make me feel important. They never make me feel like I must hide who I am. The hardest part about being away at school is working at another job where it feels like a job.

Now, after these two amazing groups of friends, I used to think to myself that nobody will ever compare. I will never find another group of friends that makes me just as happy as they do. I will hate school and just want to go back to see my friends all the time. Well, I was wrong. Now, my friends at school are the biggest thing keeping me here. They let me know that I am not alone when I miss home or when I am stressed out with work. They always make me laugh and feel like it's all worth it.I want to thank all of you and let you know just how much you mean to me. I mean, I am seriously about to cry right now thinking about how lucky I am to have you all in my life. You are the ones that keep me going and remind me what it's all about. You remind me to be understanding and to treat people with the kindness that I have found in all of you. I can only imagine what my life would be like without such amazing people to share it with. I cannot express in words how much I appreciate you. I love you.

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.
