To The Forever Friends That I Met In College

I know in the future we will always be a call away from each other.

To The Forever Friends That I Met In College
Karlie Grubbs

A little over a year ago, we met for the first time in our cafeteria on campus. It was awkward, but we laughed about Grey's Anatomy and our classes. After that first meeting, we ate lunch on campus together every day. We suddenly started texting and hanging out almost every day. We were freshmen and none of us had met any friends yet, so it was almost fate. As I learned more about the four of you, the more I found out we had in common. We all loved different things, obviously, but all our different interests and hobbies complimented each other. Before I knew it, we were doing everything together and going on trips. Your families became my family and we all looked at each other like sisters. We talked about forever friendship when we were all married and had children. We knew our friendship was rare and uncommon, we weren't going to take advantage of it.

Now, after a year and a half of friendship and two beach trips, I can safely say that I have invested myself into you guys. I prayed for friendship like this my entire life, where we just click without having to work on it. I prayed for a lifelong friendship and God gave that to me when he gave me y'all. We can spend nights in watching High School Musical and eating popcorn and having the same amount of fun if we go out.

I can trust each one of you guys with my darkest feelings and secrets and know you will understand and help me. I know you guys pray for me like I pray for y'all. I know you guys will hurt someone if they hurt me, and that's the best feeling in the whole world. Having people who would sacrifice anything for you.

I know in the future we will always be a call away from each other. I know in the future, amidst our busy lives we will always be there like we are now. In the future, I know I can count on you guys to be there for me.

You're my forever friends and I am so happy that we met in our college cafeteria.

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.
