Never Give Up

We Don't Look Backwards Very Long...Because We're Curious and Curiosity Keeps Leading Us Down New Paths. ~Walt Disney

Never Give Up

Keep Moving Forward. That is the standard motto I have lived by for a very long time. It was introduced to me in one of my favorite films of all time. It is a lesson we all should take into consideration when we run into troubles. Whatever you do, don't just stop and sulk about the issues life throws at you. Instead get up and continue. Continue experiencing, experimenting and trying new things. Anxiety never helped anyone and it especially doesn't help in times of tough decisions. Focusing on what you do wrong will hinder everything you could be doing right.

Life is full of stumbling blocks. Life has trials, triumphs and in-between times. It is for...well, living! There is importance in keeping a mindfulness on how often we lose track of ourselves amid the daily grind. Nothing slows down in today’s world. The traffic around us, people’s voices, workplace tasks. None of it takes into account a need for a break or a time for ourselves. We go down the wrong track until all we focus on are our shortcomings and become disillusioned to the reality around us.

Instead of just letting repeated failures get you down, learn from your mistakes and then move on. Don’t belabor on details and send yourself into this never-ending spiral. The feelings of failure and sadness can consume you quite easily and change your outlook on life. Let go of those feelings. From failing repeatedly you learn, from success the first time you don't. No one is perfect at something the first time. Perfect practice makes you perfect. Move from mistake to mistake until you finally get things right!! Allow yourself to experience setbacks so you can look at it in a different light. Go back to the drawing board if you have to. Try everything all over again. Your future is out there. Go grab it! But no matter what you do just promise me, you won't ever give up.

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.
