To My Best Friend As I Leave For College

1,000 miles can't separate us.

To My Best Friend As I Leave For College
McKenzie Brouk

Dear BFF,

Never did I think that this day would actually come, and that in less than two weeks I will be over 1,000 miles away from you, my best friend. I feel so lucky to have met someone like you. You're one of the kindest, most hard working, and caring people I have ever met, and I'm honored to call you my best friend. At the beginning of summer it seemed as we had so much time with each other, but in reality time passed so quickly. I'm sitting here writing this article in tears because I can't even begin to imagine the thought of not seeing you everyday at the rink, or be able to pick up my phone to text you to hang out whenever we want. I'm writing this to say thank you for being you, and for being the best friend I ever had.

Thank you for always being there for me countless times for whatever the reason was I could always count on you to be right there next to me. Times where I was sad over stupid boys, family reasons, school, or basically anything else you always knew the right words to say or how to cheer me up. You're the first person I text in a time of crisis or when I have something super exciting to tell. Thank you for loving me for who I am, and never questioning our friendship. I find it crazy that we have never gotten in one fight or argument, but then I think that just shows how strong our friendship is.

I'll never forget our countless memories, and I absolutely cannot wait to create new ones. Remember when we made homemade pizza that we doubled the ingredients on, and it ended up overflowing? Yeah that was pretty awful. Let's just say baking is not our strong suit although I think were getting better. We have been on so many trips together like California, Disney World, Wisconsin, Chicago where we created memories that will last a lifetime. I never get tired of hanging out with you because there is always a new adventure. I love that I can look at you with one look and we can know exactly what the other is thinking.

I am going to miss you so so much, but promise me that you will come visit me all the way up in Michigan. I'm so proud of you and I can't wait to see all the things you accomplish this year! Thank you for being my bridesmaids enthusiast, incredibly talented, and caring best friend.

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.
