A Thank You Letter To My Family
mauiphotographybyjen.com

It’s hard to put into words exactly how thankful I am for you and everything you’ve ever done for me. I was truly blessed with the most amazing family in the world. Life without you guys wouldn’t be the same and neither would I. There’s never a time I couldn’t count on you guys. You’re my support system, my rock and my life. You believe in me, even when I don’t believe in myself. You cheer me on and push me even when I want to give up. You are the reason I am who I am today.

We’ve been through a lot in our lives, but without each other we wouldn’t have made it over the traitorous mountains of obstacles. I couldn’t imagine my life without a family like ours. A family that is so unique, giving, caring, dysfunctional and loving. A family who will love you unconditionally no matter what. A family who will always have your back, cheer you on, support you and do anything to make you happy. It is because of my family that I have the strength to grow, take chances, and live, because I knew they were always behind me every step of the way. It is because of them that I was shaped into the person I am today and will continue to be. I was blessed with so many amazing role models to look up to, with a handful of life advice and the ability to spread my wings and fly off into the world on my own to find myself. I was never told who to be, or what to do. I was guided through life and when it was finally time to fly I was ready, And I only have my family to thank for that.

Thank you for everything you’ve ever done for me and ever taught me. Thank you for teaching me the importance of my family. Thank you for teaching me to care and to have a giving heart. Thank you for teaching me to laugh, because after all laughter is the best medicine. Thank you for teaching me to work hard in life, because it will pay off. Thank you for teaching me that it’s okay to fail, to fall and hit a dead end, but never give up. After all, it’s the failure and mistakes that teach us in life. Thank you for being my biggest support, cheerleaders and always believing in me. Thank you for being a phone call away and a shoulder to cry on. Thank you for helping me fly on my own. Thank you for teaching me how to love unconditionally, and most of all thank you for loving me unconditionally no matter what.

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.

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.
