Dear Boss Lady,

Thank you.

Thank you for giving me my first long-term job. You gave me the opportunity when I needed it most. I was only 18 and had just moved to Georgia less than 6 months prior to starting for you. I’ve worked for you for three years now, and even though it’s been a very long three years, I am very grateful. You’ve helped me adapt to different circumstances and adjust under short notice.

I moved to Georgia at the ripe age of 18 and only worked a seasonal position at Six Flags Over Georgia. You interviewed me and hired me on the spot in February of 2015. I didn't think I would be there that long, but damn it's been a long almost 3 years! I doubt you remember this, but I was quiet when I started at Ingles. (Hard to believe right?) I remember only working there a few weeks before you wanted to put me on mornings because you thought I might be a morning person. You moved me around all over the department and I was forced to learn multiple things at once, and I never thought I would know how to do so many sandwiches and trays all at once! I've met my best friends at this store, and most of which in the deli. You're a great boss, and you have got to be the most flexible when it comes to college courses and the career I'm pursuing.

Thank you for believing in me. You gave me my first full-time job against what you believed. You made me into the woman I am today. Thank you for giving me the chance to prove myself, even when I gave you every reason not to. You’re the best boss I could ask for, and I am grateful to call you a good friend. I'm glad that I know I can count on you for anything work-related, as well as a good laugh outside fo work. Believe it or not, I am going to miss that place when I leave.

“Best friendship” & mermaid tattoos; still need to get that done!

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.
