A Letter To The Heartbroken

You've got a friend in me.

A Letter To The Heartbroken
Health and Love

The dictionary defines "feisty" as a person who is relatively small but very lively, determined and courageous. This was an accurate depiction of the girl who lived just two doors down from me in the dorms. She was about 4-foot-2 with an attitude, yet the sweetest and most caring girl I have ever met.

However, there was a day when the text bubbles popped up and disappeared again. A door swung open and the pitter patter of her little feet flooded the hallway followed by a soft knock at my door. No words were needed that day as I stood there looking at her. She was filled with a pain that would keep you up until the early hours of the morning. A pain where no matter how hungry you were every bit of food would make you sick. A pain where every memory flashing back would break you down into tears. A pain that only those who have felt this could understand.

Here we are several months later and the pain has come and gone as it pleases, but on June 21, her heart was shattered into a million pieces. There will come a day when they will ask him about you and he will find himself thinking back on all of your memories, and I hope he aches in regret as the truth hits him like a bullet and he finds himself replying: “She loved me more than anyone else in the entire world and I destroyed her.” But as for now, remember that if life can remove someone you never dreamed of losing, it can replace them with someone you never dreamed of having.

I am not going to tell you to get over it. I am going to help you get through it.

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.
