Dear reader,

I know it is difficult seeing all of these people on social media saying that they are excited about what their next chapter holds. Many of them have gotten job offers, gotten into grad school, or are just succeeding.

I know some of you are happy for them but some are not. And sometimes you wonder why it is that it seems as if you haven't had that kind of luck.

I want you to know that every single person has a different path to follow. They have had different situations thrown at them, a life that is far from being similar to yours, and honestly, they may have resources that you don't have. But I want you to know that you can be just as qualified as those that seem to be more successful than you.

Instead of sitting there and wondering where you went so wrong, you need to do double, triple the amount of work to get you where you want to be. Whether that is spending a whole day filling out applications or even going in person to find out more about a position. Anything that makes you seem desperate or weird is what is needed for you to stand out from the crowd and get what it is that you deserve.

You also have to remember, because we all tend to fall into this trap, that nobody is going to make you do it. It is you who has the power to bring about change into your situation. You have the power to create the life that you want. Everybody can give you all of the advice in the world, you can watch thousands of motivational videos that make you want to get up out of your seat, but, in the end, it is you who has the power over these different situations. You need to make it happen.

Now, if you happen to be doing everything you can, just know that something out there is waiting for you. You just need to be patient, continue to work hard and never, ever get discouraged.

I believe in you.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
