This Is My Final Farewell To All The Friends I Needed To Lose

Losing friends isn't always the worst thing.

This Is My Final Farewell To All The Friends I Needed To Lose
Jada Bruce

You were the people in my life who I relied on the most. You were the people who got me through the days that tore me down. You were the people whose days I craved to hear about. I adore you and till this day would do anything for you.

I will do everything except let you bring me down again.

While you were the people who I would go out with, you were also the people who commented on the outfits I decided to wear because "I could do better." Remember those days you wouldn't talk to me? Yeah, I do, too. Those were the days the smile on my face was a little more dim than usual.

And how could I forget the days that I was just left out of plans "by accident"…those were the good days for you all, right? Or even the days you made it a joke to be responsible for me at parties? That really brought a laugh to the group, too!

I was right to walk away. Yes, I was selfish in the moment. I ran out of Jada to give you.

I ran out of laughs to share with you, puns to send you, smiles to flash at you and the love that you did not even want to take. I have nothing else to offer and I am not sorry.

But we did have some memories worth keeping. Like all the clumsy moments that sparked enough laughter to make water shoot out your mouth. Or even the tough times in school where dropping out seemed more practical than passing statistics. Those memories still mean the world to me. However, at some point, we ran out of memories to make.

"Thank you" would be an understatement. We started out as great friends who could not be separated at any means. We needed different things, I suppose, and I am sorry it took ending our friendship for me to realize that. Farewells are words that are still sour as they leave my mouth, but they had to come sooner rather than later. I can afford to lose you all, but losing myself would be way too expensive.

I still think about you and hope your drive to follow your dreams still makes your heart race. Here's to a long overdue end.

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.
