An Open Letter To My New College Friends

You've already made my college experience way better than I ever expected.

I just wanted to start by saying thank you. I didn't expect to come into college and immediately click with people, especially in the middle of a pandemic. But, I'm so glad that I met you, and I am already so thankful for this friendship that we have, that I pray lasts forever.

I appreciate the fact that you accepted me for who I am and that you are 100% real with me ALL of the time. We have broken down so many barriers and gotten to know each other on so many levels so quickly; I didn't think anyone could get so close to someone that fast.

Thank you so much for the real, genuine conversation. The late-night talks that turn into mushy crying sessions but end up with us laughing our asses off in the middle of the night. Laughing so hard we lose our breath or get a noise complaint, sometimes both :)

I love our impromptu hangouts that typically end in getting food or going thrifting. The late-night ice cream or McDonald's runs and wandering around campus at an hour that we ALL should be sleeping. The sleepovers that end up with us up until daylight and brushing our teeth with our fingers and cuddling REAL close because we don't want to go back to our rooms.

I love sneaking around the dorm during "quiet hours", even though those don't really exist for us. And the freeing feeling of blaring music with the windows down as we fly down the highway on our way to only God knows where. And most definitely the sharing of new music and the replaying of songs that will most definitely be a staple of our college years.

Thank you for not letting me do dumb things alone and always supporting me in paying for the other half of the delivery pizza because after all, we're broke college kids. And thank you so much for dragging my ass to the gym some days and to bed some nights because we all know I need that extra push sometimes.

Thank you for pushing me to get through my classes, but also helping me manage my stress by realizing that I don't always have to be so hard on myself. Thank you for helping me find my purpose. Thank you for making me feel so loved, understood, and welcomed. I appreciate you beyond words.

I can't believe I've only known you for three weeks. I cannot wait to experience the rest of these four years with you. You are such a light in my life.

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.
