Letters To The People I Couldn't Live Without: The Savior

I can't thank you enough for being my best friend.

Letters To The People I Couldn't Live Without: The Savior

It's always been important to me to let others know when they are loved. Whether it be through buying them lunch, listening to their stories, or just sending a text message at two in the morning that reads, "I love you." So much so that, as corny as it seems, sometimes I forget to love myself. I'm so wrapped up in trying my best to make others happy and comfortable that I throw away my own happiness. But there is always someone to dig me out of the hole that I've dug myself. Sometimes it's my best friends, my dad, my cat, or anyone else who loves me. In light of that, I feel that I don't give you guys enough thanks. So I'm writing an open letter to each of you throughout the course of the next few weeks. So here's my deepest thank you, to my best friend, The Savior.

Hi. It's been a while since we last talked, and I don't blame either of us. You're busy with college and so am I and we both know I was never good at communication. You are living your life and being successful (despite what you may think) and I am so proud of you. For the things that you have lived through, the times that you have helped me live through. You took it upon yourself to help me, even when you had your own problems to take care of.

I try to help you in any way that I can, but I know that sometimes I have trouble with emotions. I was never one of those people that you could go to so you could have a shoulder to cry on. I have trouble with my own emotions, so honestly, I'm thankful that you have found people to hold you up in ways that I never could. Thank you for dealing with my lack of emotion. Thank you for dealing with my tears, my depression, for constantly telling me that I am amazing. I don't deserve someone like you, and you deserve someone better than me, but I imagine if you have a say in anything, I'm stuck with you.

I admire your stubbornness, your need to help people, and your heart. I admire your patience and understanding when I get into one of my moods and I just need someone to talk to. You are an amazing person, and I wouldn't want to call anyone else my platonic soulmate. Hell, we're still getting those matching tattoos right?

Thank you for being there through my parents' divorce, through high school, and when we both needed each other the most, middle school. You saved my life and I can't imagine what the world would be like without someone as amazing as you.

You know who you are, my savior.

-Love, your Best Friend

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.
