The Meaning Of Friendship

Friends are the siblings you chose.

The Meaning Of Friendship

Friendship means caring.

Friendship means thinking of them before you. It means reaching out when a friend is having a hard time. It means not forgetting anything—feelings, interests, quirks, birthdays. It means sending a text to show you're thinking of them, even if you don't expect a reply.

Friendship means realizing that another person plays a big role in your life. It means seeing their face brightens your day. It means appreciating their laugh because it wipes away your sadness. It means finding time to video chat when you're too far away to meet in person. It means picking up where you left off, no matter how many days, months, or years it's been.

Friendship means having someone to rely on. It means having a person who will tell you the brutal truth, whether it's a compliment or an insult. It means that you have someone who can rely on you for every secret and indecision. It means you have someone to send corny jokes or pretty pictures because you know they'll appreciate them.

Friendship means having someone to laugh at you when you fall down but to help you up regardless. It means knowing there's always a person to hug and a person to appreciate your weird eccentricities. It means having a person who complements your personality and helps you stay true to yourself. It means having a person who knows who you are, even if you're still trying to figure that out.

Friendship means love.

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.
