An Open Letter To Winter Break

All good things come to an end.

An Open Letter To Winter Break

Dear winter break,

You’ve been good to me, friend. But soon we have to say our goodbyes.

It was nice to have a month off from school to relax and enjoy time with my family and friends that I don’t get to see that often. Staying up late, sleeping in and binge watching my favorite Netflix series -- maybe even completing a whole series (oops). Working a little for some extra spending money but not too much to be exhausted.

Thank you for allowing me to create new memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you for incorporating Christmas and New Year’s into this period of relaxation. Thank you for being nonjudgmental when I started my New Year’s resolutions and quit after a week. Most of all, thanks for being my “get away” for the past month. Sometimes we all just need a break AKA, you.

Although the end of breaks are never fun, I’m ready to go back to school. I can’t wait to see my roommate and my best friends that live across the hall. I’m ready for the nights to go out with my girlfriends and get wild. I’m ready for the extra independence I’ll have as soon as I step off the plane. Although I’m not excited for my early morning classes or staying up until 2am studying; it’s all part of the game and I couldn’t be more thankful that I have this opportunity in the first place.

That being said, it’s time for me to go. To say goodbye to my friends and family at the airport where the plane to take me 600 miles away waits for me to board. Goodbyes are hard. But then again, it’s just a “see you later” type of deal. I’ll see my friends and family over summer, and you in December, It’s been real, thanks for the memories, Winter Break, I’ll never forget it. See you soon.

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.
