My Ex Was Like A Spider With A Web Of Very Tangled Lies

He built a web of lies and actions, and I fell right into it.

My Ex Was Like A Spider With A Web Of Very Tangled Lies

I was an innocent bug lured in by the false hopes of safety; you were like a spider. You promised me the world, and I believed you could give it to me. You lead me right into your web -- a trap you constructed with intertwining lies and actions that all lead up to my capture. I became stuck, and the harder I struggled, the more I became stuck.

I grew weak, my fighting slowed to mere widdles, and you thought you had me. You crawled from the darkness like some sort of evil monster and began to wrap me up in your lies and anger.

Black and blue and purple and yellows were the only colors I saw any more after that; they covered my skin like a sunkissed tan. From your dark corner, your doorway to the hell you created, you watched me. You watched me with those black soulless eyes as I died on the inside. No one should ever feel so helpless, so hopeless or so dead on the inside.

I thought I loved you, spider, I just thought you didn't know better and that was how you expressed your love. Bite by bite, you sucked every last piece of me away, leaving me empty. I lost myself and often wondered who I was anymore as I hung in your web. Why did I let this happen? Did you even care? I watched from my trapped perch as the world spun around me while I lay almost dead and motionless. You would crawl out and give my gifts occasionally.

As time passed, the gifts became rarer until they stopped altogether. I believe the only reason you gave me small gifts was to make yourself feel better for how you treated me. I was left hanging for dead, and I accepted that I lead myself to my own death.

Somehow a fire was lit inside of me; I began to fight back, and I was stronger than ever before. I tore right through your web of lies and fell-fell-fell to the ground. You lost me that night as I ran out into the darkness; I escaped your trap and glamor. I never once looked back to your web.

I only ran forward.

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.
