To The Friends I've Made This Semester, Thank You For Keeping Me Sane And Keeping Me Happy

Why quality is better than quantity.

thank you sign

To start, this semester has definitely been a crazy ride from beginning to end but I've had a good support system. When the crushing weight of deadlines and GPA expectations seem to close in around you, it is important to have those who can bring you out of that mindset. There have been countless times where my friends have been the only reason I didn't rip all my hair out and call it quits. It is also important to remember that this can be applied to more than school and grades. A good friend is always in clutch when it comes to anything remotely stressful such as relationships, family, health, other friends.

What I have personally found is that a quality friend can be both fun and light-hearted when necessary and serious and considerate when need be. When you've had a long and exhausting day of appointments, classes, assignments, and work your brain can be a little more than fried. I know that I can count on the friends I have made this semester to welcome me, invite me to midnight food runs, or very many pool games. I also know that I could come in crying and not one of my friends wouldn't offer to listen and help me through anything I'm struggling with. A truly good friend can not only keep you happy and laughing but also offer a peace of mind and sanity.

So, to all the friends I have made this semester, thank you. Thank you for being quality. Thank you for being you because y'all make it all worth it. Thank you for your diverse opinions and crazy theories because it pushes me to spread my viewpoints past what I've always been comfortable with. Thank you for your insane jokes and absurd puns because I need to laugh at goofy things too. The best part of it all is that I get to learn so much from each and every one of the friends I make. You all make me a better person and that is honestly all I could ask for. Thanks for being the most uncool cool friends I've ever had. And know that I appreciate y'all having my back and I'll be there for y'all, too. As Jane Austen once said, "There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends."

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.
