To the person who loves me next

Marilyn put it best...

To the person who loves me next
"I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes. I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." -Marilyn Monroe

Please be patient with me. I've been let down time and time again. I let my guard down so many times just to be stomped on repeatedly by anyone and everyone I've ever let in. Now as Mr. Trump would like to say, the wall is built. I will be hesitant when it comes to tearing that wall back down, be patient.

I'm not easy to love. I'm difficult and stubborn. I don't like to let people in. I have awful anxiety and sometimes I get sad for no apparent reason. I'm not perfect. I'll notice and question the slightest change in your tone because everyone that gets close always leaves. I'll probably annoy you, piss you off, and stay stupid things that make you want to scream at me multiple times a week, maybe even a day, but don't because in five minutes (or less) I'll be begging to cuddle.

I love everyone else more than they love me. I've always been the girl who went the extra mile. DD making sure my friends get home. Buying ten billion Christmas gifts because I don't want anyone to feel left out. Chasing the tech bus down with Taco Bell's twelve pack for my friends. I always go the extra step for the ones I love even if they're not willing to for me.

Cherish my trust. Trust has become such a hard concept these days. Reassurance is never a bad thing. I'm going to be leery of your honesty because of my past. Use your actions to prove rather than your words. I am so understanding and willing to forgive, there is absolutely no reason I should ever be lied to. I truly believe the painful truth is worth way more than a comforting lie.

I appreciate the little things. I'm not hard to make happy. Ice cream, Chinese, "chicky" tenders, food of any sort really will make me happy. Little adventures whether it be to the grocery store, or for a walk on the break wall make me a happy girl.

I will love you with every fiber of my being. I'm not one to hold back. I can't half-ass love. I want to see you be the best that you can be, while you bring out the best in me. You'll never question my feelings because I'm one who always fears missed opportunities. The thought of losing someone unexpectedly and not being on good terms with them is something I truly cannot fathom.

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.
