Hello in There: A Poem for My Future Baby

My Love for You Has Already Begun

Ellen R. Collier

Hello in there…can you hear me?

It’s about time we meet

Face to face is 9 months off

So for now it’s belly to feet

Hello in there…you can’t see me, and

I cannot see you

I bet you’ll be cute, be you boy or girl

Either one will do

Hello in there…let’s play a game

We’ll call it telephone

I’ll talk to you, you’ll hear my voice, and

Know you’re not alone

Hello in there…are you hungry yet?

What would you like to munch?

How ’bout Eggy-in-a-Basket for breakfast at home,

Then a picnic in the park for lunch?

Hello in there…you’re Dad’s here too

He wants to tell you “hi”

I know he’s new, but he loves you lots

So there’s no need for you to be shy

Hello in there…it’s story time

I know just the one we need

By the time I say “The End”, you’ll know

Just why I love to read

Hello in there…did you hear that bark?

Those are the 3 family dogs

I know that in time, they’ll become your best friends, but

Beware; they’re attention hogs

Hello in there…wanna hear a joke?

Dad will make you laugh for weeks!

I’ve rolled on the floor, while laughing so hard

That tears streamed down my cheeks!

Hello in there…it is nighttime now

Just about time for bed

So before we all turn in for the night

One more thing has to be said:

Hello in there…whoever you are

I’ve loved you from the start

You’ll be part of our family very soon, but

You began as a dream in my heart

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:
