So she will allow herself to fall, knowing she won't be caught, praying she will survive the crash.

Poetry On Odyssey: Happily Ever After

Have you ever felt something

too good to be true?

The feeling of certainty

mixed with excitement and hope.

Your heart ready to take off

like a rocket launching into space.

Your mind searching for a sign

something to dignify its hesitance.

Analyzing every word that is said

as if trying to decode a bomb.

Thinking over every move that is made

To try and understand one simple question.

Why me?

One simple question.

Two simple words.

Holding so much hurt and insecurity.

A lot can be learned

from two simple words.

Why me?

Somehow, she was told she wasn't enough.

She was made to believe

that she was a last resort.

She tries not to think.

She tries not to cry.

She tries to understand

how someone like him

could ever see something in her.

But she can never understand,

because all her life she was told

no one worth loving, will ever love her.

So she doubts and denies.

She questions and fears.

She braces herself for the inevitable departure

knowing her heart will be ruined.

Crushed under the pressure of her pain.

Suffocated from her world under water.

Surrounded by darkness and nothing.

Yet inside she is still just a girl.

A girl who longs for true love.

So she will allow herself to fall,

knowing she won't be caught

praying she will survive the crash.

For insecure girl throw their everything

into the slightest chance

at happily ever after.

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.
