friendship can change so much after you get that diploma

Friendships In High School VS college

During your high school graduation, you have an incredible experience with the friends you've been with for the past four years, the friends you have laughed with, cried with, and created immense memories with. These friends you may have been with since you entered school, having twelve years with these people. After graduation, things can always stay the same, but they can also change drastically.

After high school, the question "now what?" is the biggest thing on everyone's mind. College, the work force, or just taking time to figure things out. This change from what you've been doing for so long is something so different, and will be different for you. You may stay home and be close to your friends, or you may go to college far away. Everyone has a different plan for after they get their college diploma and that's completely fine.

When you have friends in high school, your best friends, it may take a little extra effort to be close to them once the last bell rings, but it's something you'll do for the friends you care about. Making plans on the weekends between homework and actual work, phone calls, and constant texting are key components to keep you together. From experience, I can say that a lot of high school friendships are lost, it just happens. People's lives change, they have their own changes.

When in college, you meet new people from all over. Some you get very close to and help you grow into the person you'll be when you enter the work force. Some friends are your 3am party buds who you can always count on for a good night. Everything can change so quickly.

You can have those college friends that care more about you than other friend you have ever imagined having. You can have no friends and miss your friends from high school. You can keep your friends from high school. You can do a combination. Friendship is a crazy thing and after high school, you have a moment to decide where it's going to go.

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.
