To My Best Friend That Died Too Soon

I miss you.

To My Best Friend That Died Too Soon
Josie Campbell

To my best friend, that passed too soon.

I miss you.

It is still unreal for me to think about. It's been months, and yet it feels like just yesterday you called me to tell me about something in your life. It's hard.

You were my best friend. I grew up along your side, and I don't think things will ever be the same. I remember when you would come home from work some days, and we would just sit there for hours, talking about our days, and what happened at work. Those conversations got pretty deep sometimes.

You let me into your head, and I know that wasn't easy for you. It was scary. I'm sorry I couldn't help more. I went off to college and we didn't talk every day anymore. It's hard not to think about if things could have ended differently if maybe I had talked to you more.

I miss you every second of every day. I never stop thinking of you. I get you were going through a lot. I know that you are no longer suffering, but you don't know how much I would give just to talk to you one last time..

Nothing is the same anymore, and I don't think it ever will be.We had so many plans for the future. We were supposed to grow old together, and I'm not sure it will ever be real to me. That I won't see you again. we were supposed to go to concerts together. Travel the world. Make more memories. You wanted me to make a YouTube because you though I would become famous or something. You had more faith in me than I will ever have in myself.

I think about you all the time. A facebook memory will pop up and I can't stop crying. A picture of you pops up and I break down. I miss you and your bubbly personality. You always knew how to make me smile, even when I was so so angry st you.

I will forever hold on to the memories that we shared, good and bad. They have shaped me as a person, and I will never forget you. I love you, and I hope you are flying high and enjoying an eternity of concerts.

This post is dedicated to my cousin Kathleen Paige Marie Richard. September 11th 1997-January 20th 2017

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.
