An Open Letter To My New Friend

Welcome to my life.

An Open Letter To My New Friend

Dear new friend,

To all my "old" friends, don't let the title fool you, because no, you have not been replaced. I just found a "new" friend that I want to share with the world.

There is something a tad bit wild about meeting another person. It's a new beginning. When another person strolls into your life, you can present yourself whichever way you see fit. No, I don't mean lie about your name. I mean you get to pick and choose what you want to tell this person. No matter the reason you're meeting, you have the ability to change each other's world, and create something new that just started.

The way that you are able to pick up on all of my facial expressions and all of my little quirks so quickly makes me feel so loved. I can simply depend on you to comprehend what's up, and possibly say it when I don't exactly have the words yet. I can't even imagine where I would be without you today. It's safe to state you have improved me and for that, I'll never have the capacity to reimburse you.

We met four months ago, and my life changed for the better. Remember on the first day we met, you came to visit our small group from church. We were sitting right beside each other on the couch alongside with some other girls, and were the only ones to laugh and have opinions during dead silence. That's when I should have known this was a start to a Christ centered friendship. However, it took me until just now just to realize how great of a friend and sister in Christ you really are. It took until just now for that to come out, that I thought I liked you way more than you liked me, and vice versa.

I don't nearly take enough time to tell you how much you are appreciated, so I thought I should just share it all at once, however just know that the list could go on for miles. The way you carry yourself is unlike anyone I've been around before, and I admire you for that. You have such a great sense of humor, every time I'm around you there isn't a time you aren't laughing or smiling. You have such a positive vibe that is just magnificent and unheard of. Thank you for being my shoulder to cry on during hard times of my life... and sometimes anxiety attacks, I know that's not easy to deal with. Thank you for being the one who loves happy hour at Sonic and mozzarella sticks just as much as I do. Thank you for always laughing uncontrollably, no matter how sassy I am feeling. Thank you for accepting me for who I am and not who I was. Thank you for always being there for anything I need. Last but not least, thank you for liking me as much as I like you.

I am so honored to have met someone like you. In spite of the fact that it has just been four months, I need to thank you for strolling into my life like you were there from the start.

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.

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.
