A Letter To My Future Self: The Sky Is High, And Your Potential Is Limitless

I can only hope you've made it as far as I dreamed. What's it like in the great, big world? Are you still finding everything it is you're looking for? Or perhaps, have you achieved it all, and then some?

My doubts never go away, but neither does my faith. The two clash tremendously at the worst of times, but it seems my trust overrides after all. My biggest gamble in life is on you, but I've never felt more confident.

I wish you could tell me whether or not I'm still moving in the right direction. Give me a sign or two, maybe; am I truly on the road to success?

I wonder how different things are for you. Perhaps you're on a course completely opposite from mine. I'd be lying if I said the thought of that didn't freak me out a bit, but maybe you're doing the right thing. You must be doing the right thing.

Sometimes I worry; I worry that I'll lose the way to you. But deep, deep down, I know I must trust the process and let it guide me to you. The harder I force it, the more lost I think I'll become.

Do you have a family yet? Do you plan on having a family at all? Realistically, it's you vs. world but, it would be nice to settle down with a partner in crime. I hope he's everything you're looking for in a hubby.

I hope you've moved to bigger and better places. Or at least, out of New England. Do you still hate the cold as much as I do? I hope you're somewhere warmer; you always seemed happier in the sunshine.

Please tell me you haven't forgotten about me just yet! Words can't describe how excited I am to finally meet you. I have so many assumptions about you, but

I hope you're doing everything and anything it is you said you'll do. Mom and Dad must be so proud of where you've come. Just know I'm equally as proud too.

Regardless of what it is you are doing, and where it is you are heading, I hope that you are happy. Remember that you are doing this for you, for us, and nobody else.

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.
