A Letter To My Friend In Heaven

To my angel.

A Letter To My Friend In Heaven

To my sweet friend who gained her wings too soon,

It is never easy to lose someone close to you. Most of us have experienced the pain of losing a loved one. It doesn’t matter if it was expected or not, the pain still hurts the same. Sometimes it’s hard to express our feelings when we go through the stages of grief, but it can be very beneficial to find an outlet for your feelings. It’s important to find a way to honor and remember your angel in heaven.

It never gets easier without you. They say that time heals all wounds, but that is not the case. It has been almost two years since you gained your wings, but the pain of losing you is still heavy on my heart. Some days are harder than others, but the pain never really goes away.

I miss you. Not a day goes by that I don’t yearn to give you a big hug and see that beautiful smile of yours. I miss you more than my words can even describe. I would do anything to give you one more hug. I miss our talks, the laughs, spending time with you, and everything else about you.

I hope that I make you proud. Many things that I have done in life are because of you. I want to do things that would make you proud. There are things that I would have never done in life, but you inspired me to step out of my comfort zone. I want to make you proud in everything I do.

You still have an impact on me. Your life was short, but you lived every day to the fullest. You inspired me to be the best version of myself and to live each day like it is my last. I think of you and your fighting spirit when I’m going through a tough time, and you still inspire me to pick myself up and keep pushing on.

I will never forget you. There is no way that I could ever forget about you. You are not someone I could just forget about. You had such a huge impact on my life. I think about you every single day. You are constantly on my mind. I promise that you will never be forgotten.

You hold a special place in my heart. You hold a place in my heart that will be there forever. That place in my heart is a whole that only you can fill. I carry you in my heart because you are so special to me. I love you so much. You will forever be one of my best friends even if you are in heaven now.

I can’t wait to see you again. The one thing that helped me deal with the pain of losing you was thinking about the moment that I’ll get to see you again in Heaven. I take comfort in that. I know you are having a grand party up in Heaven and one day I will get to join you up there.

In memory of my angel in Heaven, Unique Barnes.

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.

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.
