Why I'm Happy That You're Happy

Because you deserve it.

Why I'm Happy That You're Happy

Hi! It’s me again. I feel like less than a month ago, you would have gotten a wave of excitement at the sight of my name on your phone screen. Now it would probably only bring indifference, annoyance, or maybe even a stab of sadness. I’m not really sure how you would feel. And that’s because I don’t even know who you are anymore.

And that’s okay. Because I know that you have met someone new. Heck, I have too, and we both know that. However, the difference between you and me is that I have decided to take things slow this time. You, on the other hand, choose to flaunt your happiness and make your new love interest public. But that’s okay! We are both two different people who choose to deal with things differently.

You seem happy. I see your Snap Chats of the two of you laughing and smiling and casually hanging out. And it seems genuine. Fortunately, I hope that it is genuine and you really are happy. I hope that for a lot of reasons. What we had may have ended, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still wish the best for you. One could even say that if I didn’t want the very best for you, I would have never loved you in the first place.

I hope that you are happy because you deserve it. Just because we didn’t work out doesn’t mean that you’re a bad person or I’m a bad person or that we’re bad in relationships. It just means we weren’t compatible. I’ve learned that no matter how much you can love someone, sometimes two people just aren’t meant to be. And maybe that’s something that shouldn’t be fought against, because maybe, just maybe, God has a bigger plan and has someone delicately crafted just for you. Some would even call it a “soul mate.”

So maybe this girl is the one for you, or maybe she’s not. Either way, I know that there is someone out there made just for you. However, in your current situation, I am happy that you are happy because I can see how happy you make her. She seems to be on Cloud Nine. And this is great, because it was something that our relationship lacked for a long time. You deserve to know that you are capable of making someone else happy, and she seems to be very deserving of your love.

Now I’m going to be honest, when I first heard about you and her, I immediately wanted to pick her apart and count her flaws one by one. Then I realized how bitter that made me. I am happy. I’m the happiest I have ever been. So how could I be so selfish as to wish the opposite for you? We had our run, and it was a good one filled with many lessons for the both of us. I believe that we are who we are because of it. But now it is time to utilize those lessons learned in our relationships to come. Although my heart is whole, you will always carry a piece of me wherever you may go, and I genuinely wish you the best in all of your future endeavors.

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.
