To My Fur Babies, Mom's Sorry She's Not Around More

But I want you to know our time together is worth more to me than gold.

To my little fur babies,

I'm so sorry life is so hectic, and there's no way for me to explain my absence to you. I'm sorry you spend most days alone, with your other furry friends, waiting for me to come home. I'm sorry for the anxiety and stress this causes you. I'm sorry that some days I don't return for over twelve hours, when others all I do is stay cooped up in my room, ignoring you for that pesky paper I always seem to be writing on.

I'm sorry the days that are sunny we don't go outside and play til it gets dark. I'm sorry I yell at you when you misbehave, and continue to neglect you for my other responsibilities.

I love you more than anything, and there's nothing I look forward to more than coming home to your loving faces. The best parts of my day is walking through that door and having three sets of feet come rushing to me, jumping up on me, and kissing my hands and face. I love how you cuddle up to me extra tight on the couch when we watch TV together. I love how you recognize my voice and light up when you realize I said your name. I love petting you, and touching your soft fur.

I love the moments we have together because I know they are short and fleeting.

I wish life wouldn't be this way, and that I could just spend the little time that I do have with you on this earth, doing nothing but all of your favorite activities together. I wish everyday we could run outside and play fetch, or cuddle up on the couch on rainy days and have endless belly rubs, or to give you all the treats your tummy can hold. I wish we could go on more walks and that you could see more to life than just the little confines of our home.

I hope that I am giving you a good life, and that you are happy with me. I know it's hard to understand why I go away only to return later, and if I were you, I'd be extremely upset, too.

I'm sorry I can't hold you and comfort you on rainy days when the thunder makes you shake. I'm sorry I scold you more than I tell you you're a good boy. I'm sorry my absence makes you a bit stir crazy and bored, and I'm sorry for not exercising you more often so you didn't destroy everything in your path.

If I had it my way, there wouldn't be a day or adventure we wouldn't go on. But alas, all I can do is enjoy my time with you while I can, when I can.

Just know, no matter where I am, where I go, or how long I'm away, I will always love you, my fur babies.

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.
