To My Childhood Bestfriend

Even though we are two hours away from each other for most of the year, and both of us have different lives, you and I will forever remain close.

To My Childhood Bestfriend

Dear Friend,

When we met in the first grade, I fell down and hurt myself, and you were the first one there trying to help me. When we met, I didn’t know that our friendship would continue to grow for fourteen years (and counting).

When you moved away, right before the start of middle school, it was hard on both of us. In reality, you didn’t move that far away, but to an 11-year-old, 45 minutes feels like an eternity. We did our best to keep in touch, and to see each other as much as we could. Unfortunately, neither of us realized how hard this would be, and we have kind of fallen out of touch.

Even now, I still tell you everything when I can, even if it’s a couple of weeks after it happened. You still sit and listen to me through everything, and I know that’s hard because I talk so much.

We’ve had our ups and downs, but you have been there with me through everything, and I am very grateful for that. When my grandma died, you offered me all of the love and support you could give, and for that I can’t thank you enough. Your kind words helped me more than you could know.

It has been eight months since I have seen you last, and that’s a long time to go without being able to talk to you in person.

We have had some pretty crazy adventures in the last fourteen years, like the time I took you to a Twenty One Pilots concert, even though you didn’t know who they were, or the time when the straw from my drink disappeared and flew out of the car window.

My parents and I recently re-did my bedroom, and as I was looking through boxes of things we found in my closet, I found notes, promises, and pictures that we made for each other in our elementary school years.

I miss you oh-so much, and I’m hoping to see you sometime in the very near future. I can’t wait to tell you everything that’s happened in the last eight months, and I can’t wait to hear everything that has happened to you. I can’t wait to make more memories with you, and I can’t wait to go on every adventure possible.

Even though we are two hours away from each other for most of the year, and both of us have different lives, you and I will forever remain close. No matter what happens, or how things play out in our future, we will figure out some way to stay connected.

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.
