When I was little, I constantly changed my mind on what I wanted to be when I grew up. Now that I'm about to enter college, I still have no idea. Below five things I wanted to do when I was little.

Horse Trainer

When I was around eight years old I was absolutely obsessed with horses, like very girl was at the time. I had two horses growing up and boarded them at a stable near my house. I can remember wanting to be a horse trainer for the longest time. I thought it was a really cool job and what's better than getting to be around horses right!? As I got older I started to develop new hobbies and interest so sadly my dream of being a horse trainer will never come true.

This job is very similar to wanting to be a horse trainer, so I guess it makes a lot of sense that I would want to be a vet two. I have always been surrounded by a lot of different animals and had a lot of them.

When I was in about third grade, I had a really great teacher who had a huge impact on school for me. My little sister and I used to play the teacher, where I was the teacher and she was the student. I slowly realized that teaching was defiantly not for me.

When Grays Anatomy was getting really popular, I decided that I wanted to work in a hospital like them and save peoples lives. I quickly realized that of course hospitals are not really like grays anatomy and there not nearly as much Rama. I also realized that I would have to go to school for like 13 years if I decided to do that.

Now that I'm entering college, I've started to really think about what I want to major in and do for the rest of my life. Nursing has always been something I've been really interested in and as of right now i'm going to pursue a BSN and hopefully go on to be a nurse practitioner or go into health care administration.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
