To My Little Sister

Please stop growing up so fast!

To My Little Sister
Caitlyn Morral

For whatever reason, time insists on continuing to go by as quickly as possible. It's exciting to watch you grow up, but it's also sad to think that my little sister isn't so little anymore. Thinking about how much time has passed since we shared a small bedroom at 7 years old and 3 years old has made me want to tell you just how much you mean to me. Nobody really knows what it's like to have a best friend unless they have a sister. I love being able to watch out for you and make sure that you're okay, because it kills me to see you upset or troubled. Never forget that I'm always going to be here and I'm not going anywhere any time soon.

As much as I want you to stay the same as you were when you were much younger, I'm also so very proud of everything that you are. Even when you might not think so, you're the most beautiful person inside and out. Even on my worst days when I'm nowhere near you, you find a way to make everything just a little bit better. I don't think that words are enough to truly let you know just how much I appreciate every little thing that you do.

You're remarkably sassy for a girl who has a tendency to act shy around other people. I'm happy that I'm lucky enough to know that, in reality, you're the farthest thing from shy. You've never ceased to make me laugh when we were really little and I'm relieved that that's one thing that has stayed the same.

Wherever you go in life, you're going to be beyond successful. There might be times when you're going to feel alone -- but you always have me. If I'm not close by, I'm always a phone call or a drive away.

With all of this being said, if you ever come up with a way to stop growing up for a while, I would greatly appreciate it. Just know that I'm never not going to be incredibly proud of you. I love you!

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.
