She’s Not My Big Or Little, She’s Just My Girl

They've impacted my life on a whole other level.

She’s Not My Big Or Little, She’s Just My Girl
Madison Skinner

First off, don't get me wrong I love my big and my little so, so much, but they are way more to that! Over the past year, my big has taught me so many things. She has taught me to keep my cool when a professor is flipping dumb dumb, not just dumb but like failing the whole class dumb because he doesn't know how to teach. She has taught me to not be ashamed to ask for help. She has taught me what a true friend is and how a true friendship actually works. She's taught me that not everyone understands my sense of humor like she does. She has pushed me to study. She has pushed me to become a leader and rise above the expectations. She has prepared me for the next few years of my life in the short time that I've known her, and I could never repay her for that. She is my go-to when I need to go to Walmart, but I don't want to go by myself. She is down for dinner plans anytime I ask. She is always to talk to me and assure me that one grade does not define my life. She is my freaking girl.

As for my little, I've only known her for a few months, but I already know she's my freaking girl, too. From the moment we met, we clicked and I knew I was about to get a new best friend. I am ready to become what my big has become for me for her. I am ready to be her rock when classes get rough, especially when we "are not well"(little insider sorry not sorry). I am ready for the late night library crying sessions, lord knows I'm far too prepared for that. I also know that she'll be there for me. I knew that I wanted to be her friend, and I am so glad that I am able to be her big. I can't wait to see where this journey takes our sweet family.

I am beyond thanful that these two ladies came into my life when they did, I would not be the person I am today without either of them. They have both impacted my life is such awesome ways, and I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for us. Here's to many more memories with my awesome fam!

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.
