To You, From Me

Friendship doesn't always last.

To You, From Me

Dear you,

Hey. It's been a while. I hope you're doing well. It's not that I miss you, because I don't... I miss the thought of you, I guess. I miss what I made up in my head during our "friendship."

Friendship is two sided. Friendship is love for someone that you'd do anything to see them smile. Our "friendship" was one sided. Our "friendship" was hate for someone that you'd do anything to see them cry. We were toxic. But I don't regret wasting my time on you; there were some good moments in there. We laughed until we cried. We shared secrets. We sat in each other's presence without noise. It was good for a while.

I think toward the end we both could feel a fade. I could feel myself not feeling for your happiness anymore. I began to dread seeing your face everyday. I began to wonder why we were still "friends."

Senior year of high school was filled with a series of roller coasters. We were friends, then we weren't. We could stand to be around each other, and then we couldn't. We loved each other. We hated each other. We wanted happiness for each other. We wanted sadness for each other. Just up and down the whole year. It was exhausting.

Looking back now, I realize that there was no "we" or "us" it was only "me" and "you." I thought our kids were going to grow up together. I thought we were going to grow old together. I thought were going to be best friends until the end. I wanted that. I wanted our kids to grow up together. I wanted to grow old together. I wanted to be best friends until the end. But you either didn't or didn't care either way.

Thank you for showing me the opposites in life. When I wanted to go up, you drug me down. When I wanted happiness, you brought sadness. When I wanted bright lights, you drug me into the darkness.

I do love you. I do hope the best for you. I want to see you succeed. I want you to find someone that will treat you like I did. But most importantly, I want you to realize it next time. Show him/her that you care. Be the other side. Don't let them be the one side that cares. Make a lasting friendship. I hope your kids will grow up with their kids. I hope you grow old together. I hope you're best friends until the end.

Because that's what I wanted for you all along--happiness.

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.
