Falling For You Was My Most Embarrassing Moment

Bonfires in Morgan's backyard with the usual group normally meant deep talks or sober thoughts you wouldn't voice without the cover of nightfall. This time, Brad and Nick were with us and like normal high school kids, there had to be a couple set up. Brad really wanted Nick and me to get together and wasn't afraid to make it obvious. Brows were raised, winks were thrown, and kisses were blown.

While sitting around the fire, Brad and Nick decided it would be a good idea to assign everyone a spirit animal in a ritualistic fashion. Obviously, a fire presented itself as something to dance around before the spirit animals were designated, so that's exactly what Brad and Nick did. Morgan never turned down an opportunity to be loud, so she joined and it was all fun and games. Meaningless sounds were being tossed back and forth across the fire like a hot potato until it was my turn to be crowned with a title. Bowed heads and silence preceded Brad whispering, "Black Panther." Cheering and other noises were shouted at the moon and we all celebrated our new identities. Pretty soon we were all headed home for the night.

Brad obviously wasn't about to give up his dream of getting Nick and me together by the end of that night. So Brad and Nick were in the car ahead of my sister and me. When we pulled up to a red light there were no other cars around and the next thing I know, Nick was out of his car waving for me to do the same. My sister yelled, "Get out! He wants you to go to him!" The pressure was on to make it to him before the stop light turned green, so I went to him the fastest way I knew how; I ran. As I closed the distance between us there was about an arm's length between him and me when I slipped on a pile of pebbles and found myself literally falling for him. Fortunately, he caught me and I avoided road rash on my face. I was so embarrassed after that, so I decided it would be a good idea to give him a quick thanks-for-not-letting-me-fall-on-my-face hug and run back to my car.

And I never saw Nick again.

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.
