To Your College Best Friend, As You Are Both About To Graduate

To think of how odd it will feel to not be steps away from seeing you.

How has 4 years flown by already?

It feels like just yesterday we were meeting for the first time.

Unaware of how quickly a strong friendship was about to form. Maybe it was by chance or maybe it was meant to be, but nonetheless you became my best friend.

We have undoubtedly created some of the most amazing and unique memories throughout our time in college. Some we could vividly remember and some we have to think a little harder to remember. Nonetheless, every moment we spent together led us to where we are today.

Together we conquered college and all the highs and lows it brought.

You helped me when I was in times of struggle, and I have helped you when you needed it the most. In times of triumph and happiness we also were there, together, celebrating those moments. Working our way through college probably would have been a lot harder had we not had each other. Our college experiences would not have been the same if it weren't for our friendship.

Now, in a mere few weeks, our time at college (well at least undergraduate) is about to come to a close.

Our plans for the future are vastly different and will separate us once again by distance. The one thing I know for sure, however, is that our friendship will know no distance.

Our friendship will stay strong and we will still be in each other's lives.

We will be standing next to each other when we get married and spoiling each other's future kids. Because we built a friendship so strong, I believe it will last us through our adult lives.

I will miss you dearly once we graduate and it comes August when we feel like we should be moving back to school.

But I know you have some amazing things that lie ahead for you. You are one of the strongest people I know and you will do amazing things in adulthood. I wish you the best of luck and never forget that I am always here for you. I cannot wait to see how much stronger our friendship becomes while we begin to shape our own lives.

Together we started our first day of classes, and together we will walk across the stage to receive our diplomas.

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.
