An Open Letter To The Person I Have Become

I never thought you would be this person, but look at you!! You did it. You are the you that you have been wanting to be.

An Open Letter To The Person I Have Become

Dear future me,

I think it's important to look back and realize that the person you used to be, is someone in which you are no longer. The progress you have made these past few years, or even months, is unbelievably remarkable. You should without an absolute doubt be so proud of yourself and the person that you have become, because who would have thought that you would end up to be the person you are now, even a year ago from today?

I have to say, if you are in any way not happy with who you are now, just look back at how things were a year ago (whether they were better or worse) and take note for just a minute as to how much can truly change.

Life is constantly going through an abundance of ups and downs, and no two things will stay the same and nothing going on will stay as is forever. It is important to realize how much your life is capable of changing and what happens as the months go on.

On the other hand, if you ARE in fact happy with how life is going, then it is important to look back at the times where you wished that your life would be like how it is now, and how far you have allowed yourself to come. Life is good, but you most likely worked hard in multiple aspects to be where you are today.

All in all, regardless of what is currently happening in your life or where you are at, you have worked hard to get here. Everything you receive out of life does not just happen and get handed to you, so it is essential to be proud of yourself and to take note of your accomplishments.

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.
