To My Childhood BFFs Even Though We Grew Apart

As far away as I am from you, just know that I will always be there for you.

To My Childhood BFFs Even Though We Grew Apart

Dear childhood best friend(s):

Everyone has their childhood best friend or friends that they will never forget. Whether you talk to them to this day or not, you still think about them every once in a while, well, at least I do. I think that those friends deserve a big thank-you. Thank you for always wanting to go and hang out when there was 5 feet of snow on the ground. Thank you for wanting to go on a bike ride when it’s 100 degrees out in the middle of summer. You know who you are, and your friendship means so much to me.

I also want to thank you for being there for me through everything, even if it was something like my awkward polo phase. You were there with me through that, and my awkward hairstyle phase, too. You never judged me, my hair, my outfits, or even my jokes. We all know that 9 times out of 10 I really wasn’t that funny, but you still laughed with me. I don't know why, but some of you became my best friends even after I pulled your hair on the school bus in 1st grade.

Those best friends were there through it all. Some of you were even all in the same circle of friends, and you helped shaped me into who I am today. We all went through some of the same struggles together, even losing someone from our close inner circle. I know that you will be there for me even if I gave you a call right now. That’s a true childhood best friend, and like I said before, you deserve a big thank-you.

I know that some of us have parted ways, and that’s okay. I still think about you and our friendship, and I wish you well. I hope that some of you see this and know that I do think of you, and I do reminisce some of the times that we had together. They are memories that will last a lifetime, and I hope you feel the same way that I do.

I think it takes a special kind of friendship to be able to pick up right where we left off every time we are able to reconnect. You guys know who you are, and you know that I will always be there to laugh with you at 3 am just like old times. I know that we are all getting older, and we are all growing up and going our separate ways, that’s what makes it a little tougher. Back then, we were 9 or 10 years old predicting what our early 20s would be like, and now we are in our 20s wondering what our 40s will be like.

It’s crazy to think about, and even crazier to write about right now. As far away as I am from you, just know that I will always be there for you. You will always be my childhood best friend(s). I will never forget you, and I will always cherish our memories from our young years in life. I love you!

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.
