Dear Old Friend,

Oh man, things have really changed.

Dear Old Friend,

Dear Old Friend,

It has been awhile since we last talked. By no way does this mean that I have a problem with you, but we just kind of went our separate ways. People grow, life changes and life moves faster than the speed of light without us even realizing it. Therefore, I believe its fair to take a few seconds out my day to recognize the person who used to mean the most to me.

We really suck. Shame on us for no making an effort to be better and keep up with the hustle of life to catch up and get lunch. We really need to get better at making time for each other.

Thank you for creating such an impact on my life. Sometimes I look at things and they automatically remind me of the good time we had together. The crazy memories that we shared together and vowed not to tell anyone about were some of the best times of my life and I am so grateful you were there to share them with me.

No one knows my past better than you. You are one of the only people that understands the deep and scary meaning behind, "Aunt Carol is coming in town this weekend". You remember the first time I was grounded, spending birthdays and holidays together, summer camps, the dreaded middle school drama and you were there for it all.

As we grew older, we started to drift apart, not for the better or the worse. We had different classes, friend groups, interests and daily life kept us apart from each other. I love the moments that we get to spend catching up together and laughing, for it makes me remember things like old times, and that yes, both of our mothers are still crazy.

One last thing, wherever this amazing world takes you I hope you succeed. I hope you live your dream life that we talked about when we were eight years old. And one last thank you, because if it wasn't for you I wouldn't be the person I am today.

With love,

Your Oldest Friend

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.
