I hear wedding bells and I want to cry.

My Friends Are Getting Engaged And I Am Nowhere Near Ready To Attend Their Weddings

These are people I played with in elementary school, cheered beside in middle school, and had homeroom with in high school. I have not seen these people since our high school graduation a few years ago. However, I have stayed up to date on their personal lives through social media. My Facebook and Instagram are FILLED with people getting engaged. I don't know how to handle it. They are so young, happy, in love, and look fantastic. But I am not ready to attend these weddings and here are some reasons why:

1. I am going to cry like a little baby at the ceremony.

Come on! Imagine seeing your third-grade best friend walking down the aisle in a white gown! We used to plan and say what we wanted our own weddings to look like, and now it is actually happening.

2. We aren't old enough to get drunk at the reception.

Some of us attending the wedding are not yet 21 and have to either beg the groom's uncle for a beer or sneak the future mother-in-law's glass of wine once she is drunk after the toasts. What am I going to toast you with? Ginger Ale?

3. I'm broke and the wedding gift will probably be what you didn't want.

Giphy

Here ya go. I'm sorry. I'll make it up to you later.

4. I don't want to loose a good friend.

Giphy

You're getting married and moving away and I may never seen you again. Not fair!

5. You're marrying because you are in love.

Giphy

You are going to have the best time being in love and starting a new family.

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.

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.
