Doesn’t Know Me: A Poem About Jealousy

I saw Ramona this morning. We started talking for a bit. David interrupted us and stole her away. I think I hate David, but he doesn't know me.

Ramona and I were walking home after school.

Here comes cool guy David ruining the mood.

I swear I hate David, but he doesn't know me.

I saw David talking to Ramona by her locker today. What the hell was I supposed to do, what was I supposed to say. To hell with David, even if he doesn't know me.

They were laughing together. Looked like they were having a good time. That son of a bitch. I know his aim now, who cares if he doesn't know me.

We celebrated our 1 year today. She said she loves only me. That day I forgot about David. I'm sure he wasn't thinking about me. Why would he. Besides, he doesn't know me.

David congratulated us on our anniversary.

Told us we were a cute couple. I don't get it, is he really happy for us? Could he be? For Christ sakes, he doesn't even know me.

They're hanging out today. Ramona and David

The feelings still there. Why won't it let me be.

I should hate David, but I really don't know him, just like he doesn't know me

David doesn't know me, he knows Ramona.

I saw them hug each other goodbye before her date with me. Why do I hate David? I don't know him, and he doesn't know me.

They went out together. I told her to have fun.

It came back like always, the feeling of unease. He doesn't know me, that's always been clear to see. I'm too busy blaming David, when I didn't even know the problem's been me.

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.
