Not Your Average Love Letter

A cliche twist.

Not Your Average Love Letter
Colin Sullivan

“Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt” -Kurt Vonnegut

To begin we must make some clarifications. A notice of love, or writing of love, is to be able to express your passion of something through words. We choose to fall behind the safety of our words to hide from the reality of actions. We choose to write about the things we are passionate about. We choose to love these things because they make us become more aware than we once were. I was told before, “every piece of writing is a love letter.”

Comfort Found in Discomfort

To be aware of a place where it all means nothing,

to also be where everything means too much.

Sinking deep to where anxiety resides.

Unknown to the human’s toes below.

A state at which reality seems intangible.

Trying to grasp the fading firmialtiries

to the comfortable feeling of hatred.

Fear lurks through the dream,

Ingrained into us is the known feelings.

Anxiety has at last become apparent,

for the devil has grasped tighter before.

Where everything hurt.

Where we locked ourselves in to see,

To see the pain others had missed,

Coming closer to a defeat by our misery.

We fell to a point where it was easier being hurt,

Than to realize all the beauty.

A sacrifice has become a way of living.

Where we forget how to love,

we forget how to be the person we were,

to solely enjoy the unknown.

To allow ourselves in,

to allow ourselves to be standing

face to face with our biggest misunderstanding.

Our unknown has become everything,

everything we were searching for,

and everything I was running from.

Consumed in a place of discomfort,

where our brains are unraveling,

and our fingertips crave more,

craving more than just the keys below them.

Satisfying the thrill of honest ignorance,

gained knowledge overpowers our fears.

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.
