Farewell To My Teenage Years

as told by Grey's Anatomy

Farewell To My Teenage Years

My teenage years are behind me, which is scary and exciting at the same time. But, in the last two decades of my life I have learned some important lessons that I will definitely take with me into my roarin' twenties. In no way, shape, or form am I saying goodbye to my childhood. Instead I am commemorating it and highlighting a few things I will take with me.

First and for most, it is important to know your friends and who you're with. You want to treat people how you want to be treated. You don't want to forget anyone who was important to you for years and years. Some of your best friends are the ones who knew you all along.

Some days are long and I'm sure that they will only get longer with job applications, research, and the like. I am one tough cookie and it's a blessing and a curse. But, I'll try to remember these wise words of Meredith Gray.

Do you remember all those years your mom reminded you to clean out your drawers, vacuum your room, and maybe once in a blue moon to dust your room? That'll come in handy when you finally find a place of your own. Miranda Bailey knew that well; I can understand why they called her the Nazi.

When things are going south and it seems like nothing is going your way. It is important to remember you are so much more than you think you are. You have so much potential. Time will show that. I have no doubt.

And if that doesn't work out in your over-worked, stressed, and beaten mind, you could always binge eat in order to feel better. Ben and Jerry's usually does the trick, but luckily for us, from the wise words of Izzy, those calories don't count.

In conclusion, I'm really no different now then I was a year ago. I've learned from mistakes and I've matured. But, in the grand scheme of things, I'm just me. I still don't know what I want to do with my life. I thought I'd have it all figured out, but I've come to learn that it is perfectly okay to be lost in your life. To wait for the spark. Or to wait for the right thing to happen that will lead the way. For now, I'll cherish my twenties and continue to be the best me. Hopefully, I'll know what I'm doing by this time next year. But until then, I'll just have to patiently wait.

And finally,

Bring it on Twenties, I'm ready for you.

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.
