The Importance of Family

They are the friends you did not have to make.

The older you get, the more important your family becomes.

You may not realize it now, but your family will stand by you no matter what you do. As you get older and are trying to build a life for yourself, you will make a lot of tough decisions. No matter where you go or what you decide to do, your family is there to support you and help you decide what is best for you.

Your family members have so much to teach you. Even those that are younger than you can teach you. Different experiences and perspectives are valuable, and your family is most likely, to be honest about their experiences. You will learn all about their tragedies and triumphs. Appreciate your family history because it is unique.

You may not always be close to your family, and that's okay. Just know that they are important people in your life. You do not have to text or call every day to have a positive outlook on the people in your family. Know that they will always be there to talk to you when you need them.

Make the effort to see your family and get everybody together. Do not let the only time you see all your family be under tragic circumstances. You do not need an excuse to get everybody together and just spend time together.

Often times I find myself taking my family for granted. I know they will be there, so I forget to thank them for everything they do for me. Whenever I am in town, I always make time for my family. I hope that my actions remind them how thankful I am to have them around.

Take the time to remind your family you love them and will be there for them no matter where life takes 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.

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.

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.
