A Letter To My Pet

I miss you.

A Letter To My Pet
Katie Lintz

Dear Beloved,

I know this is hard for you to understand-- it can’t be easy to read this. I just up and left without you getting the chance to realize what was really happening and I broke your heart. Days went by without a word from me; how can I begin to apologize? The time came for me to pack my stuff and start a different chapter in my life. There was nothing you did to lead me to leave you behind…trust me. If it were in my power you would be here in this big city with me. You may not want to hear this, but I think our love is worth fighting for. My dear, we spent so much time together these past five years that it would be a mistake to not try and continue our relationship long distance. I miss our long walks in the park, endless movie nights and road trips. Even though you didn’t really say much that often, you were always there for me and were someone I could trust wholeheartedly. Whenever I came home from having a bad day, you would always automatically cheer me up. No one else can do that.

It’s fair to say that for how much I depend on you, you depend on me as well. We need each other in this crazy life, and that’s why I want you to understand just how much I love you. Pictures of us still hang in my apartment--I haven't forgotten about you. My friends see them and always say they want you to come visit. I know for a fact that you would love the people I've met here. (We have an endless supply of peanut butter too...I know that's your favorite). However, I know you can't drive yet, so don't fret over making the trip on your own. Please keep active--don't sleep on the couch all day. Watch what you eat too; cookies and chocolate are good but not good for you. Too many treats will get you.

Hopefully, you can find it in you to forgive me for leaving you. I'll see you soon.

Loving you endlessly,

Your Human.

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.
