My Childhood Plans

A look into my childhood dreams and how they grew and changed over the years.

As many of you can relate, I have not always wanted to go into the profession I do today. I have recently discovered what I am most passionate about and what I hope to eventually pursue later in life, which is hospitality management and events management which I am currently studying at Endicott College. At times, I struggled through the college search process, thinking that I wanted to study interior design in college. Then after working at different restaurants and seeing the operations behind them, I realized I loved working with different people and making all sorts of connections. Which is why I decided to pursue my academic career in hospitality management where I could learn the ins and outs of the hospitality industry in hopes to one day plan different events, either corporate or social.

But, what kind of kid says, “Ya know I want to go into the hospitality field when I grow up"? I vividly remember in my elementary school, kindergarten classes were chosen every day to go on the loudspeaker during the morning announcements, introduce ourselves and say what we wanted to be when we grow up. I remember hearing everything from a fire fighter, to a princess, and even a robot. For me, however, I aspired to be a ballerina. After beginning dance classes for the first time and of course after my favorite show "Angelina Ballerina". I think that’s the most admirable aspect of kids that age, their desire to be whatever they want. They believe that if they work hard enough they can do absolutely whatever they want in life. Which is a positive quality that most adults do not have and they just end up resorting to the easiest job, or the highest paying job rather than what they are most passionate about.

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.
