A Grimm Tale

Running through the woods chased by a rushing bear

A Grimm Tale
International Business Times

Ah, the Woman in the Woods, wandering, muttering, posing. Such a grim tale she suffers from. Not chased by the Wolf but a rushing Bear. Once it was foretold that she, yes she, would be the first to sit in the same chair and the same office where her husband once dallied. But now she wanders in the woods, imagining that a bear put in the forest was the cause of her demise. The bear and that other creature the Come-dy man. Oh the Huma-nity of it all!

Her mind screams at her "but you were ordained to be the first, you deserve it because you do, you must because you spent all this time with..... him..... my God all that time with..... him...... and now what to show for it? Grimly wandering in the woods constantly looking for that bear or the evil Come-dy man or worse yet having to, ick, pose with people. Who are these people who wish to take a selfie with me, from what basket did they come?

"How could I have lost? " It must be that damn bear and that evil man. "Of course, yes that must be it, because after all look at me, I wear pants suits for God sakes! Hmm, maybe people think I have no legs? No that could not be it.

"Oh and my charisma, I watch reruns after reruns of Hillary Highlights, (giggles), dodging sniper fire in Bosnia, cooking up the video for the story line in Libya. I am so charismatic just ask the Gold Man, and smart! Why do you think I wear pants? Can you imagine how many less votes if anyone saw my legs?"

The bear, the funny man, they are responsible for that man in the tower defeating me. It could not, was not, nor will I ever admit it was me. They all better watch out, I have an axe now, and I am going to hack at their precious victory.

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.

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.
