An Open Letter To My Broken-Hearted Best Friend

Just some things I want you to know...

An Open Letter To My Broken-Hearted Best Friend

Hey babes,

I know you're struggling right now, trying your best to smile through the recent heartbreak you've just experienced. As tough as you are, I just wanted to share some things with you to hopefully help during this obstacle in your life.

1. I want you to know that you are loved. Maybe it isn't from the person that you want it to be from right now, but I promise you there are more people out there waiting to welcome you with open arms. Me included, Hun.

2. It took me a while to learn that just because people don't love you in the way that you want, doesn't mean that they don't love you at all. That being said, I hope you never settle for mediocre treatment from someone who makes you question your worth. I know sometimes you feel a little rough around the edges and weird- but that's the BEST part about you. One day someone is going to appreciate the way that you have to have three fans on you when you sleep or the fact that you can only eat M&M's in even numbers. A relationship with someone — whether it be from a lover, friends, or family- is meant to build you up, not bring your spirits down.

3. I want you to know that as cheesy as it sounds, it's true when people say "everything happens for a reason". You may not see the reason now, you may not see it next month- but one day you will. One day you'll be sitting there on a beach with a margarita in one hand, your husband's hand in the other, and a smile on your face and it'll all click at once. It'll suddenly make sense why all of this hurt you're going through now had to happen for your happiness to occur then.

5. Whatever decision you make from this point forward—I support you. If you want to go back and make it work again then that's your choice. No one can tell you what the best decision is to make, that's on you. All I can tell you is that no matter what you do- you have my support. I want you to be happy and I want you to make the decision that you feel to be right in your mind and soul. I'm not saying that I'll be able to understand the decision you made, but I am PROMISING you that I will stand by your side and support you in any possible way that I can. The thing is, you don't need my approval. You don't need anyone's approval. Trust yourself, because your self-love and acceptance is all you truly need in this life, and I believe in you and your ability to make the choice in your heart that leads you to that.

6. Ice cream and popcorn may not fix all of this hurt you feel, but I promise you one thing will, without a doubt: TIME. Be patient, for time heals all wounds.

So chin up darling- don't let some boy ruin your new mascara, find a man who ruins your lipstick instead.

Love you always,

Besties for the Resties

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.
