Dreams And Imaginations

Basically, I love space and the future.

Dreams And Imaginations

You ever look up at night into a clear navy sky? Stars upon stars upon the backdrop of a never-ending abyss of darkness. We can only see so far into it, but just knowing that it continues forever excites me.

Now I don't know about you, but I would have loved to have existed in a time of "Star Wars", but without the wars. A time like "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets",where humans and aliens of many forms travel the galaxies, instead of just traveling in cars on roads on our Mother Earth. A time like one of my favorite sci-fi futuristic films, "Passengers". To exist on the Starship Avalon going to colonize a new planet, I would be ecstatic!

If you ask me, there is no way that we are the only planet with life. There is no way that we are the only galaxy, universe, or solar system that is out there. To be able to interact with a new life form would be so fascinating! As long as it's a friendly encounter, that is.

I am enthralled by the idea of traveling galaxies and exploring different planets! I get sad when I realize that leisurely space travel will most likely not be a thing in my lifetime.

This is something that not many people know about me, but I am starting to express this side of me a bit more. I just recently started to think about why I am so interested in the future, space travel, and such things. I have concluded that I love the idea so much because it is so new.

It hasn't happened yet, and it can be written in various ways. The things we could learn about humans, life, the meaning of existence, and the space that surrounds us is infinite.

I know I am painting the happy, positive, Hollywood picture of what the future could look like, but why can't it be that way? I don't understand when people are skeptical of life forms beyond Earth. Now, this is all just my opinion, and it is something I enjoy to think about. I love getting into long conversations about these hypothetical things.

It is amazing as a human to have the capacity to imagine and dream about something as fleeting as the future. What thoughts and dreams do you revel in?

I have one last thing to say. If you haven't seen the end of the first "Men In Black"movie, then do so immediately! It will blow your mind!

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.
