I Asked God For A Best Friend And Got A Mini Me Instead

You may be 10 years younger than me but you get me on a spiritual level...

I Asked God For A Best Friend And Got A Mini Me Instead
Ashley Denton

I remember being 10 and wanting nothing more than for a best friend who was just like me. Well, when you wish upon a star your dreams really do come true because that's exactly what I got. That's exactly when you came into my life. No, I didn't get a best friend who was the same age as me but I got something just a little better. I got my very own mini-me.

I remember meeting you when you came home from the hospital you were so tiny! I loved playing with you and changing your little outfits you were literally like a little baby doll and I loved it. So much! I can remember it all. The little two-year-old playing with her little kitchen making me "coffee and pizza" yes I was 12 when this was going on but your little spunk and personality had my attention captured.

Watching you grow up has honestly been so much fun and so far one of the most rewarding aspects of my life. Watching you from the time you were born to the little toddler wondering around to now… a young lady with mounds of personality and spunk and the sweetest and most intelligent little girl I have ever known. You are your own little person now, you're only eleven but have the maturity level of a 16-year-old. Seeing you on snapchat and Instagram has me shook, to say the least… like you are actually old enough for one?!? Where the heck is time going because I would like to follow it to get some back.

The one good thing about you growing up is that the older you get the more I can do with you! Shopping trips are a blast now, and yes your selfie game is on fleek. (we've had a lot of practice throughout the years) The fact that you get the importance of taking pictures of someone and hitting different angles is crucial honestly makes me so proud because what eleven years old does that? You continuously amaze me every day with how mature and responsible you are. I am so very blessed to be able to watch you grow up and every day I do it's just like looking in a mirror and watching my childhood play out in front of me.

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.
