Oh hey best friend. Honestly, wow, it’s about time I wrote this. I just feel like I need to thank you.

Thank you for being there when girls were too much. Don’t get me wrong, my female friends are some of the coolest people in the entire universe, but it is possible to have too much of a good thing, especially when that thing is girls, because we all know girls come with drama. The fact that guys are typically drama free, or at least have a lesser quantity of drama, is so very comforting.

Thank you for being so down to earth. I’ve been through a lot in my life but, no matter what, I could always count on you to give me a straight answer; you never steered me wrong. In a sea of “no you look so pretty!” it was sometimes nice to hear, “Did you get any sleep last night at all? You look like you’ve been hit by a truck.” or “Don’t date him; you can do way better.”

Thank you for giving the greatest hugs, next to my dad and my grandfather (shout out to Papa Bear and Pop). Your hugs are amazing; they’re top notch, and I truly appreciate them. They always make me feel safe and cared for.

Thank you for the awesome jam sessions. Your taste in music is so entertaining, and we’ve had some stellar sing alongs. Car rides are much more fun with loud music and singing.

Thank you for supporting my dreams. The fact that I am pursuing a career in performance and teaching performance is a lot, and many people have told me to do something else, or to come up with a backup plan. You were always some of my biggest cheerleaders.

Thank you for being there when my heart was broken. This ties into a lot of the others but when I thought I could never put my heart back together, you were down to earth, gave me an amazing hug, said you were going to go kill someone and then we had a jam session. So thank you for knowing exactly how to make me feel better.

Thank you for being my resident bodyguard. If anyone hurt me you were always ready to rip them a new one, and I am thankful for that. No matter how often I would say “I can take care of this myself,” I couldn’t. I am a tiny, fragile human and it was very nice to know that someone had my back.

Thank you for talking to me about the significant women in your life. It made me feel so special knowing that you were comfortable enough to talk to me about relationship stuff. I eat that kind of thing up, especially when someone I care about is involved.

Thank you for our heart to hearts. I’ve been able to open up to you about things that I can’t tell other people. The fact that I can trust you to not tell anyone those things, and to not judge me for the decisions I make while still setting me straight, is one of the things I appreciate the most about you.

Thank you for your whole hearted acceptance of my uniqueness. I’m quite extra as far as people go, so the fact that you are willing, and actually want to invest time in a friendship with me is honestly the coolest thing. It makes my heart so happy. I feel so loved.

You’re one of the coolest people I’ve ever met, and I hope you’re in my life basically forever. Love you loooooooooooong time, my brother!

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.
