Don't Take Life Away From Us

I'm Sorry. Society, You Put The Shame On Us.

Don't Take Life Away From Us

Too many sufferings. Too many tragic events. White lives. Black Lives. Latinos. Everyone.

Mourning is respectable and no matter the religion, the people that were left dead must be remembered, for the respect of the family and showing that they existed.

Every life is important, the lives of the person or people who chose to create terror and kill onto innocent lives shouldn't be remembered. Instead, remember the innocent, the one who didn't deserve death.

There's too many threats ongoing in the world and that's a sad case. I doubt there will ever exist peace on earth, that mentality will always leave me with my heart torn but that's reality.

As Gil Scott-Heron once said; "Who Will Survive In America?"

The answer is no one, living in a land of sweat, tears and blood.

People in this society are grown with a mentality of being scared to go outside because "it's too dangerous, there's too many threats, I might get shot" and it's true, there seems to be little to no respect of life in the world. Where Is The Love?

Please remember the people who died, there has to be justice. Justice for everyone. Don't pick a side, wake up and support the movement for justice.

Justice for black men and women who are killed every week, the Dallas officers who died while on duty, the Orlando Gay Club massacre, young lives, old lives, every life.

Trayvon Martin, remember him. His life mattered.

Patrick Zamarripa, remember him. His life mattered.

Caesar Cruz, remember him. His life mattered.

Eric Garner, remember him. His life mattered.

Anthony Nuñez, remember him. His life mattered.

Philandro Castile, remember him. His life mattered.

Alton Sterling, remember him. His life mattered.

Rekia Boyd, remember her. Her life mattered.

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.

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.
