A Letter to My Mom in Heaven

I hope you're proud of me.

A Letter to My Mom in Heaven
Chelsea Knox

Dear Mom/Mother/Mommy/Best Friend,

I miss you. It's been so long since I've heard your voice and seen your face it almost scares me that I'm going to forget the sound or the way you look. Sure, I have pictures to remind me, that doesn't mean anything compared to seeing you in person. I don't think I'll ever be able to get over the fact that you're gone, and I've accepted that. I just hope and pray every day that you're proud of me.

I've had some really hard times without you that I've cried out loud that I just wished you were here. I have those times in private, but sometimes in public. I'm so blessed to have had the time I had with you, but I'll always believe you were taken from me way too soon. My best friend, my rock, my right hand, my person, my everything, just gone. They say time heals all wounds but not this one. This is an open wound that when prodded, just bleeds out for a long time. I've had a great support system to help me cope with your absence but it doesn't matter. You're still gone and I'm still sad about it.

I hope you know I love you. I love you with everything I've got and that I miss you more with every passing day. I hope you see everyone up in heaven and you brag about how proud you are of me. I wish you were here to see my accomplishments and see your beautiful smile just beam at me because you're so happy for me. I don't talk to many people about you because I have to talk in past tense and that brings on the sadness. When people hear that I've lost you they feel so sorry for me and they tell me how they can't imagine going through what I have, but I nod and say it's okay; that I've managed. The truth is, I barely have. I hope you know that I wish my life were different and that you were still here.

I yell at everyone who is unappreciative of their mothers. The ones who say they hate them or that they're annoying, I get visibly angry at them and tell them how lucky they are to have them and to appreciate them before it's too late. I envy everyone who still has their mother as well. Granted, I've has some wonderful women act as second mothers, but no one could replace you. Not ever.

I'll always be your little girl and I hope you're looking down at me, beaming with pride. Everything I do, I do it for you or with you in mind. No matter how much time goes on, I will always do things this way. Just remember, I love you more than I will ever love any person or anything in this world.

Love always and forever,

Your little girl.

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.
