Dear Nana, I Love You

There is no bond comparable to that of a nana and her granddaughter.

Dear Nana, I Love You
Lexis Twentier

Dear Nana,

Thank you for always being there for me. As cliche as that sounds, it is true. Anytime I have needed something, needed a ride, wanted a cute shirt, was hungry, or just wanted to hangout, you were there. You have shown me nothing but love and care. You always help me out if I need gas, am low on cash, and around the holidays. I appreciate everything you do for me from helping me with money to listening when I need to complain.

From the time I was a little girl until now, I have so many fond memories of us together. I remember asking for some homemade sweet tea, and sure enough, within two hours it was in the fridge! I loved your sweet tea; it was so good! Although you sometimes worked shifts that made it hard for you to make my concerts or sporting events, you always tried your best to be there. I understand, though, because you were helping people! It was your job to help people find their way in life and get better! You are always helping people in any way that you can.

My favorite part of our relationship is when we go on random shopping trips. I know that as long as I have you, I have a shopping partner! I don't know many people that can go and shop as long as me, but I'm sure glad that you're one of them! You always tell the truth when I try clothes on, and help me put together the outfits that I (want) need! Of course, us two women need some good food after a long day of shopping. Whether it be Olive Garden, The Cheesecake Factory, or Chipotle, we always head out and have a good meal to end the day!

So what I am trying to say is that you're amazing. I'm so glad that you're my Nana. The past 19 years have been great, I can't wait for the next 19!

Love you lots,

Your favorite granddaughter

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
