An Open Letter To Women All Around The World

A woman's place is anywhere she sees fit

An Open Letter To Women All Around The World

Dear Women of Planet Earth,

First of all, YOU are badass and I mean this in every sense of the word, so don't take it lightly. What we as women have accomplished both domestically and internationally should never be taken lightly by yourself or anyone else for that matter. The determination each one of possesses is essential to who we are not only as women but humans in general. We routinely take the bull by the horn's and say "this is not ONLY a world for men, so allow the women to step forward". We know our worth and we go after that and quite frankly it warms my heart. Never change ladies, never change!

Second of all, never and I mean never let a man tell you your place in the world. Men have for too long kept poignant areas of the world and boy's club and that will no longer fly in this day and age. Anything a man can do, a woman can too (and sometimes even better), so don't be afraid to roll up your sleeves and get in there with the boys. Further, never let a man undermine you because you are a woman... we were created as equal counterparts to men not as subordinates so that means we deserve to live the same life and reap the same benefits as any man does. Remember, it might be a man's world but it would be NOTHING without a woman.

Last, but certainly not least never feel forced to live up to societal expectations of women because they're simply egregious and will decimate any remaining happiness you have. Live life to the standards and expectations YOU set for YOURSELF because everyone is different and living a life that celebrates our own feminine individualities is the only way we can truly be happy/satisfied. You are you, I am me, and the other girls reading this are themselves and we will all live out our lives to satisfy our individual happiness, not the cookie-cutter life of happiness set before us by some small-minded man.

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.
