To My Ex-Best Friend, I'm Sorry I Let You Have Such An Impact On My Life

To my ex-best friend,

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry that you thought I wasn't good enough. I'm sorry that you wouldn't give me another chance, I'm sorry that you wouldn't give me the time of day.

I'm sorry for the way you made me feel after we talked at the park. When you said you were "done" and that you didn't want me anymore, that you didn't even want to talk, or even make eye contact.

I'm sorry for the tears I cried over you, and for all the double chocolate brownie ice cream I consumed over you.

I'm sorry that as we sat in AP Psychology class, you being all the way across the room, all I could think about was coming over and telling you the funny thing that happened this morning.

But guess what? I can't. I can't because you won't even look at me. Even though there were a million open seats next to me, you chose the one furthest away. I'm sorry that I'm so awful that you can't even sit by me for a fifty-minute class period.

I'm sorry that I was so nice to give you an answer to the study guide question for our AP test. You were nice and said, "thanks" but I got my hopes up thinking maybe we would talk again. I'm sorry I was so stupid.

I'm sorry that our three years of suffering through Cross Country together, causing us to grow closer, meant nothing to you. Or the laughs that we shared in Geometry class.

I'm sorry that you were so weak that you had to believe someone else's rumors about me that weren't even true. Someone who would stab you in the back the first chance they got. I'm sorry I wasn't as important as that person's opinion.

Most of all, I'm sorry that you thought you got the best of me. I'm sorry that you thought you were so important that my life would just be over because I lost you. For a while, I thought it was, and I'm sorry I let you have so much impact on me. However, now, I'm better off without you, and I'm sorry you thought I wouldn't be.

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
