An Open Letter To My Father-- From a Daughter Who Is Way Too Blessed

Happy Father's Day, Dad.

An Open Letter To My Father-- From a Daughter Who Is Way Too Blessed
Personal Image

To my loving father,

I honestly do not even know where to start, other than by saying I am so incredibly blessed to be your daughter.

There are so many things that I see in myself, that I know I picked from you. For one, you are so motivated in everything that you do. You set your mind to something, and no matter how crazy the idea may be, you somehow find a way to do it. For instance, you had a dream house-- and you built it-- all on your own. Everything that I decide that I want to do, I complete, thanks to you. And for that, I am blessed.

You have given me everything I've ever wanted, my entire world. Not materialistically, but in other ways. You have pushed me to achieve every dream I've ever had, telling me nothing is too insane to shoot for. You have never stopped encouraging me, whether it was from the sidelines at every cringe-worthy sports game, in the audience at a performance, or at the kitchen table reading my newest piece of work. You have given me everything, and for that, I am blessed.

You make life so much fun. I know I am probably not the most joyful person to be around all the time, but you always greet me every day with the biggest smile on your face, a smile that makes anyone grin right back. You have so much love for everything in life, and you want to share every great moment with the people you love. And for that, I am blessed.

You enjoy the most out of the smallest things in life. You appreciate every sun that sets over the lake, and watch them from the deck. You appreciate every early morning workout, and still seize the day after. You appreciate every bowl of peanut butter and chocolate ice cream. These little moments are what make your personality so great, and for that, I am blessed.

I could go on and on talking about how lucky I am to be your daughter. And every daughter would probably say the same about their father. But every single time you look at me and tell me how much I remind you of yourself, it reassures me of how great of a person I am, and how wonderful of a job you did raising me.

And for that, I am blessed.

Love you endlessly,

Your daughter.

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.
