My Parents Are The Best Parents In The Whole World

Everyone says it, but I know that they actually are the best.

My Parents Are The Best Parents In The Whole World
Elizabeth Colagrande

I'm writing this with a lot of mixed emotions right now. I feel upset because my parents went to Disney World without me (I'm still really bitter), but I also feel really grateful that I was raised by two incredible people. Everyone says that they have the coolest parents, but mine are seriously the coolest. Here are the reasons why my parents are the best in the entire world.

They don't care what career I want, as long as I'm happy. It's a great feeling knowing your parents have your back when you want to pursue a certain career. While most parents want their child to have a stable career with a steady income, mine want me to be happy in a career that I love and actually want to pursue.

They taught me to be compassionate and kind. I learned at a very early age that not everyone has been blessed with the privileges we've been given and that it's important to help those who can't help themselves. Whether it's donating $5 to charity, giving your lunch to the homeless, or making a care package for someone less fortunate during the holidays, my parents taught me the importance of giving back. Helping those in need only betters the world around them and makes a difference. I'm very proud that my parents have instilled those values in me from a very early age.

They're super supportive of all my endeavors. In every event I participate in, I always have at least one of my parents there, no matter how small or large it is. My parents come to everything from little fundraisers, all the way to coming to the opening night of my shows. Not only do they support me and my sisters in everything that we do, but they're supportive of my friends and get excited watching them succeed at what they do. Not all parents are supportive of what their child likes to do, but I'm fortunate enough to have parents that support not only me, but my friends too.

I always know I'm welcomed home, no matter what. I've been blessed to be in a family that allows me to be who I am, and be loved for all my quirks and flaws. Not everyone is blessed with that kind of love and support. I know that if I have a bad day, the door is always open for me to come home to. My parents have my back no matter what (even when I complain that they went to Disney without me). I love them with all my heart and I know that they love me just as much.

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.
