To The Greatest Man In My Life

I want you to know I wouldn't change a thing about our relationship and how we've grown and bonded.

To The Greatest Man In My Life
Paige Libman

Dear Father,

We have quite the history old man, a whole 18 years worth. You've been many things to me. Growing up you were my Spider-man and my Batman always protecting your secret identity and unable to provide the proof I asked for.

Over the years we've made so many memories. Many of them involving the collection of as many 'Dave and Busters' tickets as we possibly could have. Spending hours playing the Deal or No Deal game always saying No Deal until we had to accept the final deal. Going on our spontaneous adventures to a million different places.

Remember when we went to the white water rafting center and you fell out of the raft trying to save the other guy who was with us in the raft? You ended up floating all the way down the river with all of our lost oars in your hands. I remember watching the 'Giants' play on Sundays while putting Tiki, the best dog in the world, in a 'Giants' jersey.

Just as we've had our good times, we've had our bad ones. We've had many more ups than we've had downs though. I look forward to every second I get to spend with you. No matter what we end up doing, I always have a great time. We could sleep till 2 pm and watch movies all day and I wouldn't trade the time spent with you for the world.

I know you regret not being in my life more. I know you regret missing my school award ceremonies and my cheer-leading competitions. I know you wish you had taken more time off work when I came to visit. I know you wish you could change many things about the past.

I want you to know I wouldn't change a thing about our relationship and how we've grown and bonded. We have a very intricate relationship full of so much trust and loyalty and I wouldn't want to change that for the world. We can't change the past, I don't believe there's a reason to focus on what you can't change.

We have quite the roller coaster ahead of us but I'm sticking with you till the very end. You are my person, my rock, my inspiration, and my world.

It's me and you against the world, always and forever. Don't ever forget that I love you more than life itself.

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.

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.
