Dear best friend,

I thought this would be easy to write, but I struggle to properly communicate just how much I appreciate you as a best friend and as a person. I have known you for basically my entire life. I feel like we have been friends forever, yet it feels like just yesterday we met and became inseparable. Our friendship has withstood the test of time along with many other trials. However, that's why I cherish our friendship so much. I have had friendships where I feel like I am constantly on the chopping block or like I have only three strikes and I'm out, but you never make me feel like I am so disposable.

I have grown apart from many of my friends after losing contact or changing schools, but no amount of time or distance seems to tear our friendship apart. I know we might be busy, but we can always make time for each other. There is no one else I have more fun with than you. No one else truly understands and appreciates my sense of humor like you do. Other people might think I'm crazy when I do my "crazy laugh," but instead of giving me a strange look, you'll throw me a crazy laugh right back. No one else can have an entire conversation in Disney Channel quotes the way we can. You are hands down the funniest person I have ever met.

You're fun to be around, but you also challenge me. You challenge my beliefs. You challenge my patience. You challenge me to be the best version of me that I can be, and for that, I will always be grateful to you. I am a stronger person and I can articulate my beliefs better because of you, even if our beliefs don't line up completely. I can talk to you about literally anything, no matter how deep, embarrassing or disturbing. I know that I don't have to worry about being judged when I tell you something about myself. In fact, your understanding makes me feel even closer to you.

I wish that everyone could have a best friend like you. I want everyone to know you because you bring everyone you meet so much happiness, but I am also selfish and wish I could keep you all to myself. Anyone who can't see your worth and beauty does not deserve to have you as a friend. I am just lucky enough to call you my absolute best friend. Scratch that. "Best friend" is not a strong enough word. You're the closest thing I have to a sister.


The person who will always be here for 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.

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.
