What You Miss Out On When You Have Everything Handed To You

What happens when you go broke?

You say you don't have it all. Only that your parents purchased your $20,000 car, pay for the insurance and put a monthly amount of money in your bank account; just because. You don't have to work, instead you have the luxury of lounging around. Being around friends with a similar home life. Not really stressing about what you can afford to eat this month, because hell, you can eat like a king every day compared to majority of college students.

However, I am not bashing you. Only explaining you're missing out.

Having work ethic is important in this society. Your parents will not always be there to support you, some decisions will have to be on your own. You can't get a job based off a record of no job, no references and only a lot of money from your parents.

For this, I feel bad for you. You will go from job to job trying to find that work ethic, meanwhile most of us are settled into one career because we were busy making sandwiches at 3 a.m, while you and your friends party.

Sadly, you'll never know what it is like to earn something for actually doing something. You probably read that and remember the time your parents put money into your account, just because why not. It feels amazing when I finally get a paycheck that I spent 40 hours of my week dedicating to it, and to help pay my own bills.

Everyone like me (the majority) can handle being broke because we know how to survive. What are you going to do one day when you're broke? You can't buy $200 pair of Nike's or go to a nice vacation during spring break.

Therefore I am sorry you can't experience the hardships of life because those are the moments in life that make you, who you are.

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.

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.
