A Letter To My Mother

Dear Mama

A Letter To My Mother

Hey Madre,

This week was rough and it made me realize a few different things. First off, thank you for letting it be perfectly fine to call you at any hour of the day or night to say anything that may be on my mind. Being sick and living somewhere other than under your roof has made me completely realize what it means to have your mom with you when you’re sick. Even to just have you hug me while having a fever seemed to make all sickness run and hide. I think all moms, but particularly you have magic mommy powers that have healing properties. I can only hope to inherit this when I have my own children. Thank you for being my best friend as I’ve grown up in so many ways. You’ve made the past nineteen years the best yet and I so look forward to what the future has in store. I know that if we would have been in high school together at the same time, I would have wanted to be best friends with you. I’d have been proud to be best friends with you. At the same time though, thank you for not being the mom that is best friends with their child. I know that that works for some people and that is awesome for them, but the discipline you have taught me through raising my sassy soul has honestly sculpted me into a woman I am proud to be, a woman that doesn’t settle, a woman that is deserving of respect, a woman just like you. Again, if I ever have girls of my own, I can only hope to be as stellar as a mom as you are for your girls. Thank you for making me work for the important things in life and not be lazy in chasing my dreams. Thank you for making my education a priority, for making my passions a priority, for being selfless and putting me first countless times, probably much more than I’ll ever know. I am sad that it has taken me so long to see how important of a role you play in my life. You are a role model to me, and to any women out there. You are the strongest lady I know, in every way. You’ve taught me to be the same way, and sometimes that leads to the two of us butting heads, but I can always count on you to love me always through all of it. Know that I have loved you through every argument or disagreement that we have ever been through. You’re a wonderfully intelligent human, and you shine in a world that can so often be dark. Superheroes like you deserve someone to lean on from time to time and, Mom, I always gonna be there for you. I promise. You’re a blessing, and you are crazy super duper loved.

You’re the best and I adore you!

Always, Love 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.

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.
