To The Girl Who Feels Lost, You Will Find Yourself Again

Now that you are willing to take control again, it will be difficult, but I hope that you don't give up.

I know that you haven't had it easy. Your life spiraled out of your control, which caused you to let yourself lose sight of what was important. Now that you are willing to take control again, it will be difficult, but I hope that you don't give up. When you fell, you had to realize that the uphill climb from rock bottom would be challenging. It is OK though, because after all of these complications you are going to be stronger and more confident in your abilities. You are going to have so many reasons to make sure that you are taking care of yourself. You wandered away from who you are, but I have high hopes for you.

I hope that you allow yourself to fail sometimes. I hope that you allow yourself to see all of the sides of every situation before making conclusions about them. I hope that you are able to remember your past while creating your future. I hope that you are surrounding yourself with a support system that allows you to be yourself always. I hope that you can trust yourself enough to make your own choices. I hope that you trust you take chances. I hope that you do what makes you happy. I hope that you don't let your failures overpower your successes. I hope that you don't give up yourself for someone else. I hope that you consider other's feelings when you utter certain words. I hope that you allow kindness to guide you. I hope that you pull yourself back up. I hope that you never fall back down. Lastly, I hope that you find yourself.

You have been missing for a while. The people you love have missed your smile. They missed your optimism and your laugh. They missed how you could influence a room with your voice. They missed that your forgiving nature made them better people. I hope that you found your path and that you have returned back to where you belong. You may have wandered, but I knew you were never completely lost.

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.
