A Letter To My Mom

As I thought of what to write to write this week, I knew this is what it had to be. Sometimes in this day and age, we forget to appreciate the woman who has been there with us literally since day one, our mothers.This Mother’s Day, don’t forget to thank your mom for all she does for you and tell her how much you love her.


I wanna start off by saying sorry.Sorry for all those times I made you feel like I don’t want to spend time with you and Daddy because “I have work”. Sorry for not cleaning my room or doing any chores when you tell me to. I'm sorry to have ever made you raise your voice at me.I’m sorry that I never understood that you only got upset with me because you love me.Through every one of our silly arguments, I never once stopped loving you, and I know you never stopped loving me. I've realized as I'm growing up that all these disputes were always in my best interest.I’m sorry it took me so long to realize that. I’m sorry for all the times I have lied to you or I rolled my eyes at you.I’m sorry for being upset with you for stupid things or saying “no other mom does this”. I understand now how much I hurt you when I say these things.I wish I could take these hurtful words back but as you say “Words can hurt more than actions and can never be taken back” and so the least I can do is apologize.Sorry for all the millions of things I have said or done that disappointed you.I will try harder and try to make sure that you think of me as someone you are proud to call your daughter.I promise.

Next, there are so many things I would say thank you for.There isn’t enough paper in the world for me to write all the reasons of why I am thankful for you and everything you do.Thank you for always protecting and caring our family.Thank you for showering your unconditional love on me and always forgiving me for doing the dumbest things (AKA almost all the time). I feel your love and kindness daily through your acts of selflessness.Thank you for encouraging me to do my absolute best. You are my biggest supporter and fan. You have always cheered me on and encouraged me to be the best person I can be. Whether it be academics, life choices, or the way I treat others , you have taught me to try my best and be the best version of myself. You have helped me through my times of wanting to give up and quit and I appreciate this more than I could explain.

Above all, I love you. Though I may not express it or say it as often, I really do appreciate everything you do for me.

Happy Mother’s Day!

-Your loving daughter

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.
