Milky Way Divine

An original poem about how much your dream and placing that into perspective matters. The world is crazy, but your goals aren't.

Milky Way Divine

Hey readers! I hope this poem reaches you well, wherever you are in the world. I wanted to do another piece emphasizing how important it is to visualize what you want even within the world's chaos. There will be points when you feel that dreaming seems fleeting and childlike but focusing on making those ideas a reality can change your perspective in a new way. We live in a time where things seem to be as bleak as ever, but it doesn't have to make us feel bleak. It all starts with some little ray of hope. It won't be easy, but I hope this motivates you to seek it out. Peace and love!

A word on changing my thoughts

To a more perspective view

The world itself is quickly turning into

An ever clearer glimpse of

Times such as this

Where reflection is aspiration

Not that of vanity

But an image of deeper connection

To my spirituality

Some may think this sounds "preachy"

While others may see it as "peachy,"

However, I never cared for approval

All I need is belief in myself, it's true

And the support from those I hold dear

In order to build strength and conquer

This world that can sometimes thrive on fear

You must understand the inner glow that you possess

It isn't tangible to many, but as long as you feel it

That energy will never be less

I hope one day, my light becomes so bright

It houses a million,

No, a billion stars like a night sky

I ache to shine and radiate

Like a queen's golden crown and lace

One day, I will be like an irreplaceable painting

Waiting so beautifully in gallery places

The memories of yesterday are replaced

With the colors of today

And, I know that like a coloring book

Patiently filling in the spaces

Makes for the most genuine inspiration

I guess, I am a dreamer, who seems in her mind

Yet, you wouldn't understand a dreamer's space and time

I don't move like everyone else, and I like that just fine

I will be like the Milky Way, so vast and divine

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.
