A Letter To Those With Many Interests

It is who you are and life is never boring because of it...

A Letter To Those With Many Interests
S. Rose Photography

The word bored, does not exist in your vocabulary. You have the will to do and learn as much as possible. If someone says you can’t do something, I am guessing you don’t sit there and take it. I grew up in a family of music and have always loved being creative.

However, along with creativity and music, I also grew up in an active lifestyle. We would go on walks, camping and hiking trips. I still consider myself a Boy Scout because I basically helped my brother achieve his eagle scout. I helped sell popcorn, helped build his eagle project, went on countless camping trips, attended many long meetings with a bag of coloring books as both my parents were den leaders. My parents did windsurfing occasionally, and we would go on long bike rides and come back with tan skin.

The water is in my veins, I love the wind in my hair but I also love the music in my ears, notes from my vocal chords, the cement under my feet, the paint brush in my palm, the click, click, click of the keyboard under my finger tips and the visions I see through the lens finder of my camera. The senses are very important to me.

Along with this long list of things that keep my heart beating, follows a crazy variety of friends. I have my friends who love to paint and watch movies with me, the friends who love making music puns that only someone who has been in music for ten years or more would understand, then I have the friends who would willingly run a half marathon with me or take on a new adventure. You have the friends you meet in your classes who also have the same interests as you and the ones that embrace your eccentric side.

SO, the struggle with this is you end up with a running total of 10,000 friends who you really like. You just want to hang out with all of them, but because you have an endless amount of hobbies and interests, they don’t all mesh together. So, you end up hanging out with 5 different people on your Saturdays when you should do homework but because you happen to love everything, you have no time during the week.

However, these friends are the best. They embrace you and the things you love. They are willing most of the time to meet someone new. They inspire you and they help you become better.

You may sometimes wish you were “normal”, however, that word is overrated. While picking a career choice may be difficult, you will always have an endless amount of interests to keep you occupied for the rest of your life. When one thing fails, something else will shine through.

Never forget the things that make your heart happy and put your mind at rest, for that is what truly makes life worth it. You were given these gifts for a reason. Be sure to share them.

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.
