A Letter To The Soul That Saved Me

Thank you.

A Letter To The Soul That Saved Me
Nikki Choate

You are the person that has been there through thick and thin for me through the past 3 years. The love that I have for you is unconditional, special, and unexplainable. You are the guide of the light for me. I remember as if it was yesterday the first time I saw you. I really believed, and still believe that you are the most beautiful soul I have yet to come across. Your dazzling smile, and humorous laugh made constantly fills my stomach with butterflies.

I tried so hard to impress you. My goal in life was to make you fall in love with me. I thought it would be so hard, because I was so insecure. However, I wanted to be myself. I wanted you to fall in love with the real me, not someone who I was trying to be. So you did. You fell in love with me, and I fell in love with you. You make my heart beat fast. My life has always been so complicated. There was no mommy or daddy. There was no positive energy in the air. It was all frustration, confusion, and depression. Until I met the soul that saved me. Through all of the pain, you looked past that. I was the most stubborn angry girl you could possibly meet. However, you treated me like I was actually worth something. You lifted me up and loved me even through the crazy abnormalities my life was received.

Such a beautiful soul, so kind, and gentle. I never believed that after everything I have been through there would be someone that wanted me. I never thought that I would get the true feeling of happiness and love. I stopped looking for it until I met the soul that saved me. You are an amazing person. I did not just fall in love with you because of your flawless self being. I did not promise to spend the rest of my life with you because of the twinkle in your eyes, or your funny jokes. I fell in love with you because after every obstacle I have come across, you were the reward in my hardship. You were my medal of worship after defeating the battles I never thought I would win.

Thank You, for being the soul that saved me.

I love you.

This is a dedication to Joel Keith Patterson, the soul that saved me.

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.
