I Remember Where I Was When MCR Broke Up

It was the worst day of my emo life.

I Remember Where I Was When MCR Broke Up

If you've read my other articles, you know I love My Chemical Romance. If you haven't, then know I had a raging emo phase. I exclusively listened to bands. Primarily, My Chemical Romance. I thought very highly of them and that honestly does not begin to cover how much I loved them.

I dreamed of seeing them perform live. It's likely the only group that I wished I could see live. There hasn't been any artist since them where I would spend a ridiculous amount of money if it meant I could go see them.

It's been so long so I don't remember the exact date but I'm pretty sure it was March 22nd, 2013 that they broke up. I was in the room, I was in a pink robe posting onto the MCR page on Facebook that I ran with my best friends.

I went back onto the Facebook dashboard, I refreshed it and found something that really shattered my world.

I definitely was in denial about it for a good twenty minutes. I was absolutely shocked to see that they had released a statement where they announced their break up. It was an incredibly short statement, too. Too short to repair the heartbreak I felt.

My dad felt that I was being very dramatic when I started crying but they were my world at the time. I'm sure there are artists that you would be devastated if they announced they would no longer perform.

I spent that night laying there in disbelief. I'm fairly certain that was my first experience with heartbreak. The next day I had a competition for a club that I was in at school. I couldn't concentrate, I couldn't be happy. Dramatic, I know.

For a very long time after they broke up, I couldn't listen to their music without getting emotional. There was one song in particular that they released in response to their break up that continues to make me feel some type of way.

It may seem like it's insane for me to feel this way but this band did a lot for me indirectly. It shaped many of my views at the time and provided me with a lot of self-confidence that I didn't have before.

I doubt that I would be the person I am today if it weren't for them. That's why their breakup was an event that is forever engraved in my mind.

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.
