I wish you could be here more than anything.

A Letter To My Loved One In Heaven
Katelynn Erickson

To my loved one in heaven,

You're gone, and everyone who knew you wishes that you weren't. Everyone says that you are in a better place, but for some reason that is hard to accept. Nobody gets to see your perfect smile anymore, so how do we know that you're happy where you are? I love you with all my heart. There are so many things I would tell you if I could see you, but I'm struggling to find the words.

I miss you. Since the day that you left, there has been a feeling of emptiness in my heart. I don't think that it is ever going away. I think about you every single day, and that's not an exaggeration. I wish you could be here more than anything.

You were a huge part of my life that will never be replaced. I grew up with you in my life and then, one day, you were just taken from me. I still can't seem to grasp the "why." Why did you have to leave? Why do you have to miss out on so much? Why did God have to take you? I love looking through old pictures and remembering all of the memories that we have together. There are so many! We have shared so many laughs, smiles, and tears, and we have spent so many holidays, birthdays and regular days together. How am I supposed to be okay with you missing all of those now that you're gone? Truth is, I'm not.

So much has happened without you. Ever since you left, so much has happened. You've missed birthdays and holidays. Those are days that you should spend with the rest of us. I've had proms and other school dances, sporting events, and I've even graduated — but you couldn't be there. I don't have the same friends anymore and now I'm in college. So much has changed since you left and I wish that you were here to see it all. You left too soon.

You're going to miss so much. As I'm getting older, I'm thinking about my future. I'm going to graduate college, get a real job, get married. I can't even picture you not being at my wedding, it hurts so bad. After I'm married, I'm going to have kids. Those kids should be a part of your life... They were supposed to be. There are countless other things that you will miss too, including more holidays, birthdays and other family and friends' life events. You deserve to be here.

You're supposed to be here. There was never a time where I thought you wouldn't get to be by my side through all that life throws at me. I had never considered the thought of you being gone until it actually happened. It sucks knowing that you don't get to experience everything that you planned on. I know you wanted to see me get married and have kids, and you should have been able to. Unfortunately, we don't get to make that choice so we have to live with it. As hard as it is now, I look forward to the day that I get to see you again.

I love you and thank you for being my guardian angel.

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.

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.
