An Open Letter To My Best Friend's Mom

I'm so thankful to have you as an amazing second mom.

To My Best Friend's Mom,

First off, I'd like to thank you for creating the human being that I proudly get to call my best friend. She brings so much joy and happiness into my life, and I know that she wouldn't be able to do that without having an amazing mom like you as a such a positive influence in her life. She's kind, smart, funny, and I owe almost all of that to you for being such a great mom and person. She's as lucky to have you as a mom as I am to have her as my best friend, and I wouldn't trade either of you for the world.

Besides being her mom, I'd like to thank you for being a second mom to me. Getting texts from you whenever something exciting happens or with well wishes for a birthday or special event make me smile and remind me that there's people beyond my own family that care enough to be apart of my life. I'm so lucky to have a "second family" with you guys that lets me be as silly and involved as I am in my own family. Whether it's just hanging out, going out to eat, or whatever other adventures may be in store, I know you guys will always make sure I'm just as happy as your own daughter. I know that I will always have a "home away from home" whenever I'm with you guys.

I hope that when I have children, I can be as wonderful as a second mother to their friends as you have been to me. When kids and teens are growing up, it's important to have as many positive influences in their lives as possible, and luckily I had you as one of those important people in my life. I'm glad that during sporting events, competitions, and other moments of achievement, you were cheering just as loud for me as for her, and just as much as my own parents did. I also appreciated when you jokingly call me your favorite daughter or favorite child as a jab at your other children. I'll always cherish all the fun times that we've had, and all the amazing, hilarious memories that I have with your daughter are all thanks to you.

Without her (and therefore, without you), my life would've turned out very different. I'm sure I would've found another best friend, and her mother would've been an amazing woman (most likely) in her own right, but it would've been nothing compared to the life I've had thanks to you two. There's no better feeling than having a whole second family to lean on when the going gets tough, and even to share moments that would've been too embarrassing to share with my own family. I can't thank you enough for everything that you've done - and probably still will do - for me.

With Love,

Your Daughter's Best Friend

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.
