To The Lady Who Paid For My Meal

Good people do still exist.

To The Lady Who Paid For My Meal

Dear lady who paid for my meal.

I ran through the drive through the other day in a rush to get to work. I pulled up to the window and ordered the cheapest thing I could possibly find. I started to scrounge through change in my coin cup as I pulled to the first window. As I sorted through my dimes and nickels I looked up at the lady working the cash register. She handed me a receipt, and said “The lady in front of you paid for your meal sweetie, and she told me to tell you to have a blessed day”. I looked at her in disbelief as I took my receipt and pulled to the second window. When I got my food, I pulled over in a parking space and just started crying. I was having such a bad morning and I was just trying to make it until pay day. It was in the moment that I realized that good people still exist. In a world, full of negativity some one cared enough to bless a complete and total stranger with a meal. I was so overwhelmed with emotions. I needed that. Not so much the paying for my meal part, but the random act of kindness part. Every day it seems that I deal with people who get more and more rude second by second, and no matter my efforts I seem to get the short end of the stick. It’s nice to know that good people still exist. To the lady who paid for my meal, thank you. I needed it more than you know.

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.
