Open Letter to My Coworkers

Having the best second family.

Open Letter to My Coworkers

All of you must understand the hate most people have for some of their coworkers. Maybe not hate, but definitely a strong dislike. You have seen the different Facebook memes about coworkers. Even though I have only been in the work force for four short years, I have finally experienced what it feels like to not hate your coworkers.

Although I have worked at many different places there has always been that one person that I just irritated me. I did not hate them, probably more disliked. I would not choose to work with them if that was how life worked. My first job was pretty close to perfect when it came to coworkers. I loved many of them, but it was a larger staff at some parts, and definitely required some adjustment. Well now about two years later I have come across a job I fell in love with. Not only did I begin to enjoy going to work, but I enjoyed working with anyone. It is a severely shorter staff than what I have previously worked with, but I could not describe the type of family I have found here. We are like the number dysfunctional family, manager, supervisor, and sales associates all. I have not only acquired six new friends, but they also became family members. It is funny and wnjoyable mixed with hard work to get what we need done. Although I know this jobs is most likely long term temporary as I get through college. I am more than estatic that I found this job to get me through these next 4-8 years of hard work and long nights of studying.

So here is an open letter about how much I am thankful for you ladies.

Thank you ladies for becoming my friends and my dysfunctional family. Thank you for covering my shifts, so I could stay up all day and night to finish my essay that I waited until the last minute to finish. Thank you for taking care of one another and most of all thank you for sharing your food (the way to my heart). Thank you for spending up to eight hours talking to me about pointless, serious, and just random things so the day would go by faster. Thank you for being the dream team of all dream teams and just in general being awesome. I have found a home that I love where everyone treats each other as equals, helps each other out, and even helps me with my college math homework! I have enjoyed every second of work (never heard that before).

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.
