How Two Girls From Colorado Feel Living In NYC

I feel like I identify as a Colorado girl in a New York City world, yes a customer called me a Colorado girl the other day and it may or may not of creeped me out- but yes I AM COLORADO HEAR ME ROAR.

Anyway, meeting up with another friend from Colorado and here's our shared experience of being from Colorado in New York City

1. A yard

As she said It 'I just want a yard, what happened to yards?" Aha, it was a good question. There are of course yards if farther off places, etc but a yard in your apartment in Manhattan or Brooklyn that close to the city? - Don't bet on it. "I just want a patch of grass to sit on" she also said, aha that one gets me.

2. Hiking

"I would like the option to hike" we agreed on. Both of us aren't avid hikers, in fact, I hated it when I was young. But wow, damn if it wasn't nice that we could just have the option to go and hike right outside side our door versus actually really driving somewhere.

3. Shopping somewhere else than Trader Joes

Oh, the days when I would just 'pick up a few things' from the grocery store on the way home. Those days are gone son, gone!

4. Showing CO pictures to EVERYONE

I thought this was just me, but we both agreed that whenever we hear the mention of 'Colorado' we instantly engage ourselves. Colorado yes? What about It? Want to see some pictures? IT's BEAUTIFUL. I even was spending too long finding pictures so I made this beautiful one as my wallpaper to catch anyone and show them that beauty. I mean, I need to probably chill.

5. Realizing we need to chill

"You know, we actually need to stop doing that", she said. "We can't have everyone move to Colorado, it's like a little secret." Agreed. Another thing I miss and liked about Colorado was how NOT CROWDED it was. Go to a hike, yeah there's people. Yeah and it's growing- but you know what will shock you in terms of people? Walking in Central Park on the first nice day of the year. Holy moly, that was a bunch of people- way more I've ever seen on the trails.

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.
