Happy Mother’s Day To My Grandma In Heaven

There is not a day that goes by that we don’t think about you.

Happy Mother’s Day To My Grandma In Heaven

You gave meaning to what it means to be a mom. Out of all your accomplishments in life, being a mom was always number one to you. Even though you couldn’t have children of your own, you opened your heart to adopt without a doubt in the world. There is not a day that goes by that we don’t think about you.

1. Thank you for not being perfect.

Life wasn’t always easy for you and there were times that you fell down, but you always got back up. You taught me that no matter how bad things get, you could always find a way to make it better.

2. Thank you for your strength.

My mom always tells me that I come from a line of strong women and I have you to thank for starting that line.

3. Thank you for filling my life with music.

My favorite childhood memories are those of you singing to me. It didn’t matter what you sang, you could make songs out of anything and that positive and happy energy brightened everyone’s day.

4. Thank you for keeping up with me when I was a kid.

You let me talk nonsense for hours on end and dress you up in ridiculous costumes. You never once told me that you were too busy or too tired to play with me even if you were exhausted. I’ll never forget my first all-nighter when we stayed up until sunrise just talking. You made me feel important by always stopping to listen to me no matter what was going on.

5. Thank you for your humor.

Whenever we were together, we were laughing. Your wit and impeccable timing could put anyone on the floor.

6. Thank you for your patience.

I live my life by your motto of “it takes time.” Hearing you say those words instantly made me take a deep breath and realize that everything was going to be okay. You always made time for and appreciated the little things in life.

7. Thank you for always smiling.

Even though you lost the love of your life and music partner to cancer, leaving you alone with two young children, you never stopped smiling. You always focused on the positives and didn’t let anything bring you down. You raised two children and became the best grandma anyone could ever ask for. You brought light and joy into everyone’s life that had the privilege of meeting you.

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.
