For Christmas I Want Closure

Im letting go and feeling good.

For Christmas I Want Closure

Sometimes I honestly get on the computer and don't know what to write. I feel like after all the different articles I have written about love and loss, there really shouldn't be anything else out there for me to say. I have poured my broken and re-healed heart into everything I have written and it doesnt seem like there should be any room for anything else. But there is.

Moving on is incredibly hard. I am trying in my life not only to move on from things that have affected me but decisions I have made and decisions that were made for me. I have to admit there are times that I have said things and done things just to be spiteful to some people that have hurt me and in doing that, it changed me for the worse. I used to be happy and full of love and life, but holding on to these things drug me down to the point where I didn't want to keep going.

Today at 1:42 in the morning, I moved on. Letting go of all the bad things that have happened to me was the hardest part. I stopped letting decisions of the past effect my mood in the future. I can honestly say I am still upset and sometimes the things that have happened to me still make me cry. I let it go. Decisions you or other people have made for me is no reason for me to allow myself to not be happy.

Since I moved on from the big stuff, I decided I was moving on from the little stuff too. He broke my heart, I got up and got better. Honestly without that small thing, I probably wouldnt have gotten the help I needed for the big things and could be much worse off than what I am now. Also, in looking for ways to get over the heartbreak I have met the most amazing people and made the most amazing memories than I have in my first 20 years of life.

Moving on is letting me breathe again. I thought that I had to make decisions that limited me in what I could and couldnt do. I wanted to avoid people and places I knew would bring up the negativity that plagued my life. Now I go where I want when I want (within reason I still ask my mom for somethings) and I make decisions based on how I feel and how it will affect me in the long run. Its freeing and honestly I have made the worst and best decisions in the past 6 months than I have in my entire life and I wouldnt change one minute of it.

You can still hurt and let it go. You hurt me and it will always scar my heart, I have just stopped reopening the wound and ended the bleeding. I will not watch myself bleed to death over anything anymore. And If you don't like the new me theres a place for you in the past, that I'm letting go of.

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.
