Luke 12:3 says, "What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs". Johnny cash sang about this concept his song, "God's Gonna Cut You Down", with the lyrics, "But sure as God has made the day and the night, what you do in the dark will be brought to light".

This reminds me of one of my not-so-shining moments as a middle-schooler. I was gossipping about one of my friends with another girl from school. I was going on and on about this girl. Then I heard in the distance, "Chloe? Hello?" I had pocket dialed the girl I was gossipping about. While I was more humiliated than I could put into words as a 13 year old, the scenario ended up being a great example of this concept. What you do in secret, what you think in secret, what you feel in secret will be brought to the light, if not dealt with.

If you harbor thoughts of jealousy, it will fester into discontentment with your life. If you are holding a grudge against someone and don't take steps towards forgiveness, you will become bitter and cold to others. Feelings of hurt and anger aren't wrong, but when they aren't confronted, you begin to spiral down an emotionally-distraught path that only leads to misery. And it's a lot hard to get off the path once you've been traveling down it for some time. Trust me.

The concept in Luke 12:3 can apply to so many more parts of our daily lives. We must strive to be the person we want to be during all moments of our day. Everything you do, even the things no one really knows, is a component of you are and who you will become. Some things may take longer to manifest into your public life, but sooner or later they will take surface.

Take it from my teenage crisis I shared. Those ill thoughts I had toward my friend turned into a topic of conversation with another person. And unfortunately, those thoughts would end up hurting my friend.

Confront your heart, your mind and your spirit. Always be alert of what you are thinking, feeling and doing in your alone time. It will be brought to light.

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.

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.
