A Thank You Letter To My Boyfriend's Family

A girl dreams of finding an amazing guy. It's when he comes from an equally amazing family, that you know you've really hit the lotto.

A Thank You Letter To My Boyfriend's Family
Tia Turner

I will never forget the first time I met my boyfriend's family. It was only about a month after we had started dating our freshman year of college and we were visiting for Spring Break. I will also never forget the mini panic attack I had pulling into his parent's driveway that night for the first time. Looking back now, I can't help but to laugh because I had absolutely nothingto worry about. Little did I know that on that night, I was walking into a family that would show me such an incredible amount of unconditional love over the next three years.

While I often thank my boyfriend for all the amazing thing he has done for me, I think it's just as important to take the time to thank the wonderful family that he comes from.

To my boyfriend's mother: Thank you for being a second mother to me. Thanks for the encouraging text messages you send me. Thank you for the yummy Easter baskets you give us and remembering small details about the things I like. Thank you for all the delicious home cooked meals you make us (after months of being away at school living off of pasta). Thank you for raising such a caring son. Thanks for your compassionate nature, especially when I was going through difficult times. Last but certainly not least, thank you for the endless amount of girl talk I always look forward to having with you whenever I am at your house.

To my boyfriend's father: Thank you for raising a son who always tries to do the right thing and always tries to do his best. Thank you for being a great example for him and teaching him the importance of hard work and how to be a gentleman. Thank you for basically being an expert on all of the questions we have about being an adult. Thank you for all those hilarious and adorable childhood stories, I love to hear about your son. Thank you for the awesome burgers, steaks, and hot dogs you've made me on the grill. P.S. Thank you for always making us laugh.

To my boyfriend's siblings: First, I want to thank you for accepting me into your family ever since the day you first met me. Thank you for always making me feel included. Thank you for never resenting me for the amount of time your brother spends with me. Most importantly, thank you for bringing out the fun and silly side of your brother that I don't normally get to see.

To all of you: Thank you for opening up your home to me and always making me feel welcome from the moment I first walked through the door. Thank you for making me feel like a part of your family, especially for including me on special occasions or bringing me along on family vacations. I have had some of the happiest moments of my life on those family trips. Thank you for always being so down-to-Earth and non-judgmental from the very beginning. Most importantly, thank you for always being supportive of the decisions we make. I am so grateful that you have accepted me into your family with such open arms. I cannot thank you all enough.

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.
