My Brain On COFFEE

We only need on powerful moment to fuel our passion for weeks.

My Brain On COFFEE

Just let your mind play.

So here I am sitting by the fire, drinking a nice warm cup of coffee. In the midst of this holiday season, I feel such an intense desire to Love humanity. I find little to be more enticing than a warm conversation: Two people positively discussing their dreams for a brighter future, manifesting inspiration out of thin air.

I want to cut firewood. I long to lace up some boots, squish my head inside a tight winter hat, and take to the woods to provide a fire for the ones I Love. Sure, it may be cold and hard to chop wood, but the opportunity to form a bond between axe chops and loading the wheel barrel provides plenty of warmth for me. Besides, we need the fire to fuel the smiles bouncing up and down in between sipping hot chocolate and singing Christmas tunes. "All I want for Christmas is YOU!"

We needn't any of the day-to-day complaining. Sure, we got to unload about how Aunt Suzy doesn't visit and how the neighborhood just isn't what it used to be. But, on this day, let's imagine what the neighborhood can become. Let's drain our pools of pessimistic insights and our apathy so that we can fill the space with our innovative ideas and creative contributions. Let's come alive again!

Oh, what a dream! Imagine a world where you were always progressing towards the next beautiful stage in your life. A world where you felt empowered to produce creative contributions, to share your voice with the world in a positive and inspiring light. A world where your words came out clearly, and you never had to argue again over miscommunication. Dude. I want that!

Well, maybe we all want that. I personally think that we do. I think that we want to overcome our day to day interactions that yield little happiness and trade them in for a more meaningful existence. I will test it. I will contribute my life to this world in the pursuit of discovering the most meaningful way to live each and every day. I am sure this will be different for all people, but I want to try to discover some common practices that enhance humanity.

All that from a cup of coffee? Was this spiked? Or did this coffee facilitate a moment? A moment that reminded me how unique of an opportunity we have as human beings. Either way: I enjoyed this moment.

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.
