An Open Letter To My Girlfriend's Mom

Thank you for bringing her into this world.

I have so many things to thank you for, and I don't know that I'll ever be able to fully express to you how much your daughter means to me. I will try, but sometimes words can't explain my true gratitude and emotions.

Thank you for raising such a beautiful soul. She sometimes doesn't always see how beautiful she is, and she can't figure out for the life of her why I love her, but you've done a really good job with her. She is really determined and ambitious, and I'm sure you had part responsibility in that fact. She knows what she wants, and she doesn't stop until she gets it. She is so strong, and I can't help but think you're one of the major reasons why.

Thank you for being there for her. You raised three children by yourself and yet you made time for each one of them. I don't think she ever felt like you weren't there for her or like she was unloved, even for a second. She talks about you like you are her world, and I hope you feel as if you're an amazing mother (because you are).

Thank you for helping her come to Wells, whether it be through academic, emotional, or financial support. I know she worked really hard in high school and did well, so part of it was on her. I'm sure your support helped her get through school, though. If she hadn't come to Wells, I more than likely would've never met her. That to me would have been a tragedy because she is such a special woman. Anyone would be lucky to have her in their lives.

Even though we did get the chance to meet, I want to remind you of a few things:

I treat your little girl like a princess. She always knows how much I love her and how much she means to me. I promise to always treat her well, and please know she is safe with me. I love that girl with everything I have, and I hope we stay together for a really long time. My goal is to always be there for her whether she needs someone to listen or hold her or whatever it may be. She will always know what she deserves as long as she is with me. I promise, she is in really good hands, and I treat her with the utmost respect and delicacy. She's precious in my book, and I hope you can see that I am good for your daughter.

I'm so glad I got to meet you. I got to see why she loves you so much. I got to see where she gets her beautiful smile from. Please know that you are a wonderful mother, and I am grateful for your role in her life. You are truly a blessing to her. Thank you for everything.

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.
