An Open Letter To The Friend That Left Without A Goodbye

It hurts now, but I'll get over it.

An Open Letter To The Friend That Left Without A Goodbye

Dear Friend,

You know, I thought about what I'd say to you if I ever talked to you again. Would I be mad and sarcastic with you- or would I just be happy to talk to you again? That conversation- the one that is most likely not to happen-has crossed my mind way too many times to count.

I don't know why you cut me off, especially now, after all this shit we've been through. Especially, after you told me a thousand times that you'd stick around… and that maybe we'd be something one day. I guess it was just dumb on my part to believe that would happen. It was dumb of me to even have feelings for you, to be honest. I was just setting myself up for heartbreak when you left.

You didn't even give me a heads up that you were leaving. There was no text, no snapchat, no signs...nothing. You just cut me off out of nowhere.

Even though it hurts, maybe it's a good thing that we don't talk anymore, because you weren't good for me. That whole situation was doomed from the moment we said anything.

I don't even really care about the "what could have been", I care about the friend I lost through all of this. You were me, in male form. We did everything together. From just hanging out in my dorm and vibing to some music to late-night games of pool. We always knew what the other was thinking, so we didn't really have to say anything when we were in a situation that made us uncomfortable. We just knew. Everything was so good during that time period. I miss it so much. I wish, more than anything, that we could go back to that.

Anyway, thanks for being such a good friend during that time. I needed someone like you. I just wish things didn't have to end like this and I wish I knew why you had to go. I probably would've understood, but that doesn't matter now. None of this matters because you made your decision and I have to be okay with it. I have to move on, even though it's so so hard.

I hope you're happy and doing well.

With love,

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.
