Heartbreak In College? Couldn't Be Me, And It Shouldn't Be You, Either

Having a broken heart in college is not the move. A reminder you may be needing.

Heartbreak In College? Couldn't Be Me, And It Shouldn't Be You, Either
Sedona Meadows

College is full of so many new experiences that a hometown heartbreak shouldn't be keeping you down. Now, trust me, I know your first love was everything. And maybe one day you'll be together again. But, for right now focusing on yourself IS the move.

Loving yourself is first and foremost.

Realizing that you should come as your own priority allows you to thrive academically and socially. This is your time to figure out your likes and dislikes and as cliché as it sounds, find out who you are.

Listen to your heart when people and things excite you. That's where you should go.

I know when I first got to ASU, I knew I needed to be free and open to meet new people and experience new things. I needed to leave all past feelings and thoughts back at home.

Here and now is your time to shine.

Just think for a second... what would your experience be like if you hung on to the things making you unhappy? You'd be closed off and sad.

I'm not saying you can never think about that person or thing bringing you down but stay in the moment.

College is where you find the path you want to take, who you'd want to be.

So I'm telling you... don't get hung up on you know who. There's "plenty of fish in the sea." (I'm sorry I had to say it)

And don't forget that it is okay to not be okay. Take the time you need to grieve but remember you are allowed to be happy, you are allowed to laugh and you are allowed to pursue new people.

So eat up that ice cream, shed your last tear, open your door and get out there. Find who you are, love who you are.

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.
