A Letter To My Confirmandi

I will always be there for you!

A Letter To My Confirmandi
Emily Fricano

Dear Sara,

First of all, I want to say thank you for being my cousin, I know you had no choice but thank you anyway. I remember when you were first born, I was so excited to see you and you were so cute and squishy. I practically grew up with you because we always saw each other at Nanny's house on the weekends. Watching you grow up was amazing because I felt closer to you. I loved hanging out in the backyard looking for snails or just playing pretend with your other sisters.

To this day I will tell stories of the things we did, and the laughs we've shared. When they ask me how old you are I have to sit back and think. I still think you are the little girl who loves snails, being outside and sports. I remember I was practicing for my volleyball team and I brought my ball over to Nanny's one weekend, the first thing you said to me was, "Can I play?" From that moment I was so excited that you wanted to learn and take an interest in the sport.

Flash forward to your 13th birthday, God, that was a tough one. I remember not knowing what to do with myself because you have grown up before my eyes and soon enough you were a young woman. I could only imagine how your parents felt. I loved being able to see you and just goof off and tell jokes.

When you asked me to be your sponsor I was completely speechless. I thought it was fake or that it was some sort of prank. I am so honored you chose me. Once you told me the date I went into a state of panic because I thought I wouldn't be able to make it because of my classes, but I worked everything out! When everything was finalized I knew I had to call you right away. The tone of your voice made me so happy. I am so glad you were so happy for me to be there. I am so excited for this day and I know we will remember this moment forever!

You are such a wonderful person, and I want you to know that. You are beautiful inside and out. I look forward to always see you and I love you so much! It makes me happy to know you can about me too, always asking if Pj is treating me right and making sure I am okay.

Things I promise:

I promise to always be there fro you! I am ALWAYS a phone call away. You can talk to me about anything, ANYTHING. I will always love you and support you no matter what. I promise to be your rock, to be your support, and a shoulder to cry on. I promise to be silly and make you laugh. I want to be the person you feel the most comfortable with and I will do anything for 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.

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.
