It's Okay If...

It's okay if your life isn't perfect.

It's Okay If...

We all have specific things that bring us down. Sometimes it's one specific word, one particular person, one distinct thing that tears us apart. And that is okay.

It is okay if...

1. You slept through your alarm

2. You didn't get anything done today

3. You binge watched Netflix

4. You didn't do too well on a big test

5. Or a small test

6. Or a project

7. You feel like you don't matter (just know you do matter)

8. You were late

9. You ate 4 donuts in one sitting

10. You need a break

11. You feel bigger than you'd like (just know you're beautiful)

12. or smaller than you'd like (just know you're still beautiful)

13. You need to cry

14. You need to talk

15. You forgot to do your homework

16. or chose not to do it for once

17. You need another break

18. You shattered your phone screen

19. You're single

20. Or in a relationship

21. You feel self conscious sometimes

22. You love your body

23. You had a bad day

24. You embarrass yourself sometimes

25. Or you embarrass yourself a lot

26. You're lonely

27. You're maybe just a little annoying

28. The only thing you did today was breathe

29. You made a mistake

30. You're not okay.

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.
