If you don't vaccinate your kids, fine, but don't bring their diseases around me

Not vaccinating your child borders on the lines of child abuse.

If you don't vaccinate your kids, fine, but don't bring their diseases around me

Picture this: Your child is a happy baby. Bouncing with joy, running and playing, perfectly healthy. All of a sudden, she comes down with a fever.

Within hours, she has lumps and is crying over a pain you can't heal. You rush her to the doctor, only to discover she has the mumps.

THANKFULLY, we live in 2018 where a vaccination for this horrific, painful disease exists. THANKFULLY, this disease has been eradicated since the introduction of the vaccination 50+ years ago.

Oh, wait, no it hasn't because idiots continue to reproduce and then refuse to vaccinate their children.

Vaccinations have helped to rid this country of unimaginable pain until the "anti-vaxxer" movement stepped up to the plate. If you are opposed to vaccinations, fine.

But don't you DARE bring your child around me or anyone else.

If you choose to openly make your child susceptible to such horrific diseases, that's your decision. No one else should be exposed to your stupidity.

Young children, individuals with cancer, and other susceptible groups of people are made susceptible to PREVENTABLE diseases because of your stupidity.

In my opinion, if a child who cannot be vaccinated due to age or health reasons, ends up dead because of a preventable disease, then the child's family responsible for spreading the disease should face criminal charges.

If nothing else, not vaccinating your child should be considered child abuse. That you would deny your child a life-saving dosage of medicine should, without a doubt, be considered child abuse.

Exposing your child to a life-threatening, painful disease is abuse. Like I said, if another child who can't be vaccinated dies because your diseased kid contaminated them, then you should be facing murder in the first degree.

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.

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.
