Megan Markle: The American Princess
Peter Lindbergh

This Saturday, May 19th 2018, history will be made as Meghan Markle will marry Prince Harry of Wales. It has always been a fantasy of mine to become a princess, I mean what girl doesn’t want to be a princess…but Meghan Markle marrying Prince Harry makes the famous dream become a reality. It is remarkable that the Prince of Wales—who can pretty much have any woman he wants in the world—has found an American and has fallen in love with her. What a great statement that is for our country and for American females.

More than just what Ms. Markle’s wedding dress will look like or who will be in her bridal party is at focal point here. More importantly, rather—because this marriage represents the bond between England and America— things such as the English citizenship process for Meghan or the ways in which Megan Markle will bring together The United States of America and England; this all comes to mind when thinking about this special royal wedding because Meghan Markle is the first American commoner and divorcé to be in line to marry the 6th in line for the throne of England.

Meghan Markle should be a role model for young women around the world because, she is opening doors that have previously been closed. First of all, she will be one of the only African American Princesses of Wales. Even more so, Meghan Markle is a divorcè. In past time, the queen has not blessed marriages that involve divorced partners. That being said, Ms.Markle has Queen Elizabeth’s blessing to marry the sixth in line for the throne: Prince Harry. Even more so, Meghan Markle is seen as an independent woman as she had her own career before becoming Harry’s partner.

All in all, Meghan Markle represents everything that the USA stands for: independence for women, confidence, diversity and elegance. An American marrying into the royal family is a very big deal and thus there is a lot of excitement that Americans and Brits have about this big event that binds our two countries together.

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.
