To The Girl I Used To Be

I just want to say see you later!


To the girl I used to be, it's time to say see you later!

I use to be one of those girls that would say "I'll start next Monday" or "I am to tired to workout today." I use to be the queen of excuses, I never wanted to workout! I am no longer that girl, I have so much more going for me now I know what I want in life, I know where I want to be!

Over the last month, I have become a completely new person, I have started a new journey that has made me realize my self-worth! I no longer make excuses as to why I can't do it.

I am no longer that person because it got me nowhere, it made me lazy. I knew I needed to change my lifestyle, I needed to change my "diet." I have changed everything about the way I eat, I have better portion control, I don't eat as many fried foods. It's not because I am on a strict diet, but because I know how certain foods made me feel!

Being lactose intolerant I know I shouldn't have been eating all those things but I was and it was making me sick, so I no longer eat that kind of stuff and I feel so much better! I use to be sick all the time I use to be in and out of the doctors for being sick all the time before I started this new lifestyle for myself. Now I no longer am in and out of the doctors, I am so much healthier and I think it was personally just my body telling me it was time to start making changes!

I am not the same person I was before this journey started in the sense of being happier! I use to never be in a good mood, I was always moody. I use to always hide in my room and not socialize with anyone, that's because I never felt good about myself, I was alway's putting myself down and making myself depressed. I was always comparing myself to my friends that are skinnier than I am. Now I no longer do that because I have gained so much more confidence in myself. I feel better mentally and emotionally, I know now that I am pretty I can look at myself in the mirror and say "wow you look good today" or just put on clothes I would have never worn before!

I just want to thank the old me for helping create the new me! I am such a better person now thanks to you, I don't know what I would do if it wasn't for you! I also want to thank all my friends and family for supporting me in this new life change, you guys are the real MVP's let's be honest here!

I know that sometimes things get rough in life and working out might not be a top priority, but I promise that working out actually helps! I know you might be sore and want to quit and give up, but you have to think of the bigger picture! The bigger picture being your goals, the ones you want to reach so you can say "yes I finally accomplished this!" It's honestly the greatest feeling in the world setting goals and reaching them!

You can do anything you set your mind to!

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.
