To the ones that got away

To the ones that got away,

Well first let me start by saying 'Congratulations' of leaving me behind, must of took a lot out of you to leave someone like me. In this situation one of us left the other to feel better while making the other person better. To the guy that said "I wasn't good enough", it's okay I have come to the realization that the words you presented me were your own problems. Maybe you should begin to pay attention to your own self rather than tear me down to build yourself back up. To the guy that created excessive rumors about me, what did those rumors cover up? Your feelings or everyone else's feelings towards the situation? To the guy that first laid hands on me, thank you for making me realize how strong I am. Even though I never fought back, you lit a spark in me. Now if anyone dares to touch me the way you did, they won't last. To the guy that first used me for his own pleasure, you were the first of many mistakes but I will still thank you for that because after those times of being manipulated and used, I know how to stand my ground. To the guy that never did anything wrong, I am sorry but it wasn't the right time for me or you. Be happy you got away that easy. To the guy that always made me cry, you might of ruined my eyes for a month but now people compliment me on how beautiful and big they are. You should've paid attention to them rather than making them swollen. To the guy that never appreciated anything, you should've just left in the first place but thank you for not. At the end of our time you made me realize to never do that for anyone normal rather to do it for someone who was willing to make time and effort to appreciate what has been given to him.

To the people reading this, the ones that got away, got away for a reason. People are taken out of our lives for reasons and these are the reasons we should begin to figure out to better ourselves. Someone could be in your life for 10 years and could easily be taken away, why? That's your own personal battle and conflict you will have to achieve on your own. Being broken up with and used is physically and mentally draining causing the body to become depressed. As you begin to heal you begin to realize the things you were missing out upon or beginning to realize how that someone you thought was perfect, was not so perfect after all. It's learning to cope with a break up or with a person that just decided to leave with no explanation. The way you decided to deal with it, positively or negatively, will help you in the future. Pondering on the fact of "are they coming back" or "when will they text me" isn't helping you improve, it's making you decline, setting you back. You don't need them, you are you. You can go anywhere and be yourself. You aren't holden back by people. You are you and that's all that matters. Be you.

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.

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.
