If I didn't have you as my parents, I would choose you as my friends

Mom and Dad, Since I don't say it enough, thank you for all that you do...

.....Would be a cliche way to start to express the amount of love I have for both of you. Actually, I do express how much I love and appreciate both of you regularly and I want to tell you why I do this.

I wouldn't have become who I am today without the both of you. Thank you for instilling core values in me and teaching me right from wrong. I may not have always been so grateful for this growing up, but I am now.

Thank you, for standing by my side. It is no secret that I was a little diva growing up, so thank you for having patience and loving me through it all.

Thank you, for inspiring me every day with how hard both of you work. I hope to one day be as successful and passionate as the both of you. I feel so blessed that I have two parents that are complete opposites but, come together to form a union. A union that has given both, my brother and I balance and structure to build a future with.

Thank you for allowing me to make my own decisions growing up and letting me express my personality. I am confident in who I am today because I had parents who allowed me to be me, every step of the way. Thank you for reminding me that only God can judge me and to always be myself.

Thank you for spoiling me and giving me the world, but also teaching me the importance of hard work and the value of a dollar.

Thank you for supporting my dreams and helping me achieve them, even when my dreams change every month. Thank you, for always making me feel important and loved.

Thank you for always being there for me when I needed a shoulder to cry on, which was a lot. Thank you, for teaching me how to take deep breathes when I am anxious and how to appreciate the good in life, because there is so much of it.

Thank you, for understanding everything about me, more than I understand about myself. Thank you, for making me strong and passing down your big hearts to me.

Thank you, for making home a place I want to be and somewhere full of love.

I will forever be grateful for the both of you, and this is why I tell you I love you, every day.

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.

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.
