An Open Letter To The Friend I Never Expected

I didn't realize how much I needed you at that time until now

An Open Letter To The Friend I Never Expected

Dear friend that came into my life randomly and unexpectedly,

It was just a regular day and I didn't really know who you were, but I knew that we were going to work together. I honestly never hang out with anyone at work besides when we are working. So I wasn't going out of my way to make conversations it would just happen. I showed you around, and from the very beginning, we clicked.

We made cheesy jokes about family, boys, and food. From the moment we've met I don't think that there has been a quiet minute. We update each other every time we get a text from our love interest or if we are frustrated about a situation.

We only worked together one day a week, but on our Wednesdays, we would always go get coffee and talk for hours. After we realized that wasn't enough time, we started working out together. This became a daily affair (on our good weeks.)

In such a short period of time, we went from our Wednesday coffee dates to being together pretty much 24/7. Now, this sounds a little much because it is, but is what you don't realize is that before we became friends I was such a boring person. I went to work, drove home, and did homework.

I didn't have any interest in making friends or being social in any way-now if you know me I'm a very awkward person. You have made me realize that no matter how much I thought I knew what I wanted in life, I really knew nothing. You've helped me to get out of my comfort zone and enjoy life for the little things.

My favorite part about being friends with you isn't the constant realizations over huge life choices-while those are nice too. I love the fact that we can hang out every day without getting annoyed of each other, or that you can tell me something without sugar-coating the situation, and whenever we make time out of our day to better ourselves.

I am so thankful that you delegate time out of your day for me and help me be the best version of myself. I hope that in 30 years we will look back on how our friendship started and just laugh together.

I now realize that sometime's God will put people in our lives that are meant when we most need them, but least expect them.

You're stuck with me for life now

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.
