My Honest Poem
Christine Sainterlien

This poem doesn’t hold as much truth as it did when I first wrote it. Right now, I am working on different things, under a different mindset. Nonetheless, this is my honest poem, kids. Hope you enjoy it.

I’m a Sagittarius.
which means
I love to travel.
But I’ve noticed that traveling has made me feel like I never had a real home to begin with....I've become really good at making any place,
Or person
Feel like a safe space I can lay my head for a while.
I’m really good at remembering faces,
I’m working on being bad at that. People find it weird when you stare and don’t share what’s on your mind.
I get anxious when people know my name before I know theirs...I tend to think my acknowledgment is something I have to earn overtime.
I’ve kept my mind hidden for most of my life. Maybe because I’m the youngest of four and whenever I tried to talk I was considered annoying and a bore.
So, I listened more.
I don’t really like to talk.
but I love to write.
I consider these two things completely different. One is a choice, the other is a means of survival.
My favorite things to do should not be my favorite things to do. It includes distance, self-harm, and smiling at people that don’t smile back.
I’m starting to believe family is a 24/7 job with unlimited benefits.
I have spent too much of my time searching for part-time people that make me feel like I'm paying for their presence.
I have major trust issues...blame Drake.
Music is my favorite way to talk. I think it speaks volumes my own voice can never reach. I would love to take a walk with Amy Winehouse and learn how she talks.


my name is Christine.

I think addiction and homelessness are some of the most humane experiences a person can go through.
...and I think love drives us all crazy.
You see, love,
Love has always been a foreign concept in my life. It takes too long to acquire citizenship and I’m over it before it even starts.

- Christine Saint

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.
