God Gives His Hardest Battles To His Strongest Warriors
Whitney Gay

Cancer is a very hard subject, everyone knows that. Having one of your parents have it is even more unbearable. You have to go through a lot when you have cancer, but most importantly it shows if you have true faith in God or not. For me I didn't have faith in him, I thought I did but when things got bad I lost every ounce I had in him and that changed me really quick.

Almost 2 years ago my mom was diagnosed with stage 2 Breast Cancer. It took us all by surprised because my mom was healthy and it just didn't make sense to me at all. I blamed God for everything. How could he do this to my mom? Why her? She didn't do anything wrong, why punish her? Greif ran through my heart so fast I didn't talk to anyone and I cried constantly. I didn't understand why God did this to us. Needless to say, I lost my faith in God.

A couple of weeks before my mom got done with her treatments, one of my friend's mom had passed away from Ovarian cancer. It hit me pretty hard because she was like another mom to me. I went to her services and her son preached about how God-fearing she was and that even though everything happened the way that it did that God had a plan. Maybe not the plan he wanted it to be but he had a plan for her, and her family. He said that God had a reason for her to be diagnosed. He has reasons for everything that is happening and that is going to happen.

God has a reason for everything. It might not what we like or want to happen but he knows what he is doing and the outcome will be great! God gives his hardest battles to his strongest warriors. Whoever is fighting, has faught, or will fight cancer, God loves you. He has a plan for you, he gives us these trials and tribulations for a reason and when he is done with it, it's amazing!

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.
