A Letter to Old Friends

There are some friendships that were doomed to end once you get your HS diploma.

A Letter to Old Friends

As you grow older, go to new schools, farther away from your home, your old high school friends begin to drift away slowly. Of course, it all really depends, you could always keep that friendship burning, as if you truly wish to be friends with that person, all it takes is communication here and there. This is a letter to those friends whom I have grown apart from, as I have made new ones where I study now.

Dear old friends, remember in our high school years? When we used to say we would be best friends for life, or always there for each other? Boy that has changed... I don't think we meant to drift apart, despite the closeness of our friendship in our high school years, it happens to everyone. There are always going to be friendships that you basically only have because you see that person every day, you don't exactly see each other outside of school, except for those occasions where preferred friends were not able to hang out. Which sounds horrible, but most of us know its true. I loved being close with those whom this letter is directed to, I cherish our memories, our jokes & laughs, and I can promise you I will never forget them ever. Friendships in high school either last a lifetime or last a few remaining years, it is just the sad truth. There are times I miss the people whom I have drifted from, who I don't communicate with whatsoever because the friendship was seemingly finished just as we threw our caps into the air on graduation. It just means maybe our friendship was temporary, which is basically true. We saw each other every day, we were essentially thrown into friendships, not expecting what would come from them.
Thank you for those years though, I wish all of those people a great life, with more people whom they will have great memories with, and the best of luck to their futures.

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.

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.
