Me, Your Growing-Up And Our Faith In Life

It's just that when we grow up, we realize that the world is no longer that simple anymore.

Me, Your Growing-Up And Our Faith In Life

Childhood day, the world in our eyes is something incredibly wonderful and beautiful.

We consider all things and events with our pink eyes. Is there anything difficult in this world? Indeed, when I was a little girl, everything that happened in this world was simple and good.

With a completely innocent soul and clear eyes, when I was just a little girl, I thought that this life was heaven, and those people around me are angels. I encountered many different images in society but saw them with the most positive and easy one. Poor people need help, rich people are amazing, I judged every situation with emotion, not rational. What is with the serious deception and lies in the world then?

Everyone is sincere and honest with each other – the basic thought of every child. Nobody deceives or harms anyone. We think that people can always give or share what we have with others, and only those who are really difficult and incapacitated will receive help from the people around them.

A few years older, we learn more valuable lessons that schools never teach. And life has taught us the unexpected truths in the world.

The rich will get richer, and the poor will continue to be poor. Another odd thing is that the poor often have more generous hearts than the rich. They are willing to give or share the little things they have with people in the same situation. But what can you do more with just a generous heart?

While the rich, they are busy making money and trying to continue to get rich. Perhaps because of that, sometimes they accidentally forget that they also need to share with the less fortunate people out there.

Then it is not only the story of the poor and the rich, but this society also becomes more complicated and uglier by deceiving stories between people. The little boys begging out on the street actually are the puppets of a company, sick pretenders wandered through the city, all of them taking advantage of the compassion of the people around to benefit themselves. Then there were cases like stealing and robberies.

Every day, just go online to read the news, or buy a newspaper near the house, we immediately see stories about people deceiving and harming people, big fish swallow small fish, problems of corruption, starvation, money laundering ... Just that, the faith we have had about this life is suddenly collapsed painfully. And then, everyone's beliefs about the goodness of life gradually disappear.

We live in this world, we need money, we need love, we need to be happy. And for that, we need to fight for our life, we must find a way to survive. How can we receive our happiness in this life without fighting for it?

Everyone wore a mask to live together, and when someone took off the mask, even for a few seconds, they would be fooled and harmed immediately. We are becoming more and more insensitive to this life because all the beliefs we once had already disappeared when we saw and witnessed stories that were not so good in society.

The older I am, the more I want to teleport back in time when life was happier and simpler. When all I have to do is to wait for the exciting one to come, to explore the world, to dream of the adventure in every fairy tale and meet new friends along the way.

But everything has its relativity. Somewhere between this life of deception and full of lies, there are occasional warm stories of human love, gentle people and inspiring stories. As a miracle of salvation, a little faith left in the hearts of every person in the world.

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.
