Going home for Christmas…

I am happy to say I just spent the best 3 weeks of my life with my friends and family, and I was lucky enough to have my fiancé by my side. Although it was exhausting, it was all worth it in the end. We both had the opportunity to surprise Dom’s side of the family on Christmas day, thanks to his brother. We were able to pull off an amazing surprise and it could not have gone any better, and I can definitely say that I feel a part of his family. I never felt such a warm welcome, and I would do it all over again if I could.

Besides having an amazing Christmas day and meeting my future in-laws, I had the opportunity to bring Dom home to my family, and they could not have made it a more special time for us. Not only that, we were able to have our best friends meet one another, which was just as special to both of us.

I had the opportunity to bring Dom and his best friend to New York City on New Years Eve, and I would have to say that this was a night full of memories and great laughs for all of us. Not only was New Year's Eve fun with them, but the days following it were just as amazing. I was able to have my best friends and Dom’s best friend officially meet, and thankfully we all hit it off great. That being said, I would not trade our old and new friendships for the world, and I cherish the memories that we all made together.

Beyond the great laughs and memories, there was one thing that stuck out to me specifically that made my trip so special. It really did touch me deeply how much my younger brothers loved Dom (they’re 3 and 4). Someone very special to me once told me that children are a very good judgement of character, and that person is absolutely correct. The oldest of my two younger brothers, Luke, is who made this very clear to me, but in a subtle manner. The day that Dom had left to fly back to Hawaii. Luke walked up to me, and it was right after I had gotten back from driving Dom to the airport. I had just walked into the door and Luke ran up to me and said “I’m really going to miss Dom…. I love him.” I nearly started to cry, and it was very clear how much of an impact Dom had on his life in just a short week’s time.

Family and friends definitely helped make this trip one that I will never forget. From going to see the tree in New York City with my fiancé, to ending up in Brooklyn after our night out on New Years Eve, this trip was the best time of my life. I was happy to be able to share Dom with everyone who means the most to me in my life. Not only that being able to also have quality time with my best friends was just as special to me. I can’t wait to see everyone again, thank you all for being so kind and loving towards us!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
