To My Best Friend On Her Wedding Day

This is a list of things I didn't get to tell you that day.

To My Best Friend On Her Wedding Day

Dear Maddy,

Spending Sunday with you and attending your wedding was the best way I could have spent my day.

I love you!

I'm so happy for you and for your new husband and proud that you two decided to take that step in life together and follow your hearts.

People will say that you're too young to be married and that you have your whole life ahead of you to find love. But I know you've found your happily ever after and I couldn't wish more for you.

You are my best friend and no matter what I'll always be there for you when you need me.

So to you, on your wedding day, (and you better believe I'll be quoting this when you have your big fancy wedding):

Since we met about four years ago, I knew you would be my best friend. You truly created a monster. I was so shy and quiet and then you appeared. Your short, purple haired, loudly opinionated self. We have way too many memories to laugh at to ever stop calling the other "best friend". From selling our children on the black market in order to buy a bigger house to getting signed photos from bands because you know I wanted them.

We went to Homecoming together and I got to dance with my best friend. The sleepovers where we devoured bags of Doritos and my nephew Alduin sleeping on my hip. I got to watch you develop in life, I saw your heartbreak and heal again. Dancing around the room to Fergalicious and falling into doors because gravity is rude.

I saw the look in your eye when you came home from work and told me about your future husband. You didn't know it yet, but he would become your world. Through the texts and screenshots you've sent my way, you two made a path together and followed it. You two are beautiful together and I know your future will be wonderful. I love you both.

Congratulations, best friend.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
