How Do We Know If Tomorrow Is Guaranteed?

Today is guaranteed. Right now is where you are at, so why not use this chance instead of waiting for tomorrow?

How Do We Know If Tomorrow Is Guaranteed?

Life is filled with obstacles consisting of the reasons why we have ups and downs in our days. Some days are better than others, while some days just seem like things just cannot get any worse. We're often being told, "Tomorrow is a new day." People tell us that we have another day for things to be better. “You have more than enough chances to make things better.

Have you ever really thought about that statement? That you have many more chances to make things better, for days to get better, for more opportunities. “When I was your age, I made the same mistakes you did. You have more chances to learn from them and become a better person.” Nowadays, it’s so easy to assume that our age defines how many more opportunities we have left in life. It’s normal, it’s part of human nature. It’s what we hope, to live a long happy and healthy life.

But in reality, how many more tomorrows do we have? We really do not know. So many crazy things happen in this world that we hope to be guaranteed a tomorrow. Is it really guaranteed though? How would our lives be if we lived knowing that tomorrow might not be here? It’s not necessarily a pessimistic point of view or “living on the edge,” but a chance to give yourself to be true to yourself and the people around you.

When is the last time you told someone that you love them? When is the last time you looked yourself in the mirror and said, “Today will be a good day.” It’s time to pick ourselves up from our lives and live everyday truthfully. Don’t wait for tomorrow for something to happen. Make it happen now. Yes, there are so many opportunities out there, but why not take the opportunity you have today? Remember that today was yesterday’s tomorrow. So what is so special about the idea of having a “tomorrow” if you are not going to take advantage of it?

You should want a tomorrow not so that you have another chance to do the things you did not do today, but because you want to continue to do the things you are able to do today. Remember in this world, ‘tomorrow’ is something you cannot buy, so let yourself be selfish and take advantage of it, not waste it.

And if you ever find yourself not doing this, think of the people who wish they could have a “tomorrow” again, especially with their loved ones. So don’t wait for tomorrow when you have today.

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.
