High School Friends Deserve More Credit

They do, and they'll always be there for you.

High School Friends Deserve More Credit

My university is great. The friends I have made here are even better, but there is always a spot in your heart somewhere for the people back in your hometown. There always will be. Our high school friends deserve more credit.

These are the people you spent your entire school career with. From nap time to walking across the stage and grabbing your diploma together. You got the chance to grow up with them to see who they were and what kind of person they are becoming now. They were there whether you liked it or not.

There's an even greater handful you can proudly call your best friends. These are the people that have stuck with you through thick and thin in and out of high school. They are the ones you visit every time you return home from school, the ones you had sleepovers with in middle school, and your go-to people that you ran to Taco Bell with after an excruciating practice.

They were right by your side during football games on Friday night, Homecoming, Prom, extracurricular clubs, and when you just needed someone to talk to. If you were lucky enough, they were even in a few classes. They always knew who you were talking about when you said "Dave Potter." They probably know everything about him from some other source in the school or first hand. No one was a stranger. Good or bad, you were in this together.

So high school friends, thank you. Thank you for accepting me when I didn't want to share my toys, when I went through my awkward middle school phase, and when I messed up in high school. I'll never forget 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.

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.
