Dear Best Friend, Thanks For Being One Reason I Look Forward To Coming Back Home During Summers

As someone who studies abroad and comes back to their home country only once a year in summer, maintaining long-distance friendships are hard. With my summer break ending and me leaving to study abroad next week, I have been reminiscing a whole lot on the memories I created this summer with my best friend.

1) Being 8 am gym buddies and actually ending up going at 8 pm

2) Talking one year's worth of stories

3) Doing Pinterest inspired photoshoots

4) Spending every single day of summer together

5) Eating chicken biryani all day, every day

6) Feeding homecooked meals to each other

7) Getting nostalgic about school days

8) Shopping until we can't feel our legs

9) Going on fancy dinner dates

10) Talking nonstop at sleepovers until our throats dry

11) Helping each other out through boy drama (and all other dramas!)

12) Being each other's cheerleaders

13) Hyping each other up as we try new clothes in trial rooms

14) Being each other's personal stylists (mostly you!)

15) Motivating each other during low days

16) Eating at every food joint in the city

17) Making travel plans for when we become billionaires

18) Breaking beauty standards together with our clothes and haircuts

19) Recommending web series to each other and watching it together

20) Stalking people on Instagram together

21) Discussing everything from politics to our favorite shade of nail polish

22) Teaming up with each other's moms to make fun of each other

You are one of the reasons why I look forward to coming back home during summers. I can't believe that this summer has already come to an end and I am starting to pack my bags. Although we meet only for a little while in the whole year, our friendship only keeps growing stronger. I cannot imagine a summer break without you.

Thank you for all the memories. Can't wait until summer 2020 to make more memories with 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.
