Happiness: that word simplifies friendship. It simplifies all the boba runs, the waves of laughter, the smiles, the great joy and energy that friendship offers. Life is never meaningless, rather, it's meaningful. Having friendships taught me that. It told me that making mistakes pardon themselves because everyone's just trying to learn. It's beautiful in so many ways that I can't really describe it.

You experience friendship in several ways. They made me happier, more confident- they helped me grow into the being I looked up to when I was younger. Friendship was bold, and it helped me be bold. If my friends jumped off a cliff, of course, I'm going to jump too because why not? Why not experience the thrill, with your friends?

Let me find my truth in friendship, a truth that said that I was loved. Let me see that the values it has brought me up to feel better about myself. Let me see that it holds a truth about love: that friendship type of love that helped me find a different happiness. This different happiness has given me people and memories I could turn towards when the times get tough. When my light dimmed down, in times of academic stress, I found comfort in friendship/love- their qualities of beauty brightening up the world.

I'm not here to flex how happy I am. I'm not here to simp/think about graduating and leaving. I'm writing this partly to say "thank you, from the bottom of my heart." A genuine "thank you" doesn't even seem like enough to exhume the great magnitude of brightness and happiness I feel when I'm around the people I love.

To write all of this out means that I'm sharing an experience that shows the meaningfulness of life. People say we are a social species, and honestly, they're not wrong. Finding relief in being with friends is enough to say that we can't just walk around the planet and just exist. We live, leaving footsteps, mesmerized by the experience.

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.
