An Open Letter To The Guy That Broke My Heart

"You had an impact on my life. I hope I had an impact on yours."

Dear You,

It's been a while since we talked last. I wonder how you're doing sometimes; what you've been up to, what you've achieved, what you've done. I hope that everything is going well for you. I want the best for you because at one time, you were the best for me. We shared so many things together, and I had convinced myself that it was going to last forever. Things change and people grow, however, and we had decided that going our separate ways would be the best thing for each of us. Of course all of the fighting that lead up to that point definitely wasn't what you or I wanted at all.

I'm not writing this letter to get back at you or to tell any of the secrets you shared with me to the world because I thought you wronged me when we parted ways. I'm writing this letter because I finally have come to terms with the fact that we are no longer with each other and probably will never be again. If I were to try and write this letter to you even a month ago, I would find it hard to find any words at all to want to say to you. After all of this time, I'm finally ready to tell you what I should have told you while we were still together.

I love you, and I always have. But now, it's a different kind of love. I don't have any romantic feelings for you anymore, especially after all of this time, but you were such a big part of my life that if you walked up to me on the street tomorrow and asked me if I could help you out, I would drop everything to help in any way I could.

I miss you, but only a little bit. What I miss the most is the memories we made together. We had so much fun together. I will never forget the time we spent together. But, everything comes to an end eventually, and our time was up after three years of memories. I hope you revisit those memories every now and then and smile when you think of the good times we had together.

I want the best for you and I mean it. You never settled for anything less than great when we were together. You were (and probably still are) a perfectionist. I thought it was silly sometimes that you wanted everything to be as perfect as possible, but you worked so hard to make even the smallest details near flawless and it sure shows now. You're absolutely fantastic and I know that you are going places.

Thank you. Without you, I don't know what I would be doing. You pushed me in the direction that I should be going, and I couldn't thank you enough for that. When I was struggling with various issues through our relationship, you were right there for me to offer whatever support you could. Sometimes it wasn't the support I wanted, but it was always the support I needed.

I feel I have so much more to say to you, but summing it up to these most important points is only what is necessary. Know that I truly mean everything that I say in this letter to you. You made an impact on my life. I hope I made an impact on yours.

Wishing you the best,

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.
