You CAN and WILL Overcome The Battle

"But, I promise that if you confront whatever is going on, it's going to make a difference."

You CAN and WILL Overcome The Battle

Going to school, being social and just doing life, in general, can be overwhelming and exhausting. A lot of times, we take it out on other things. We ignore the issues going on and instead of confronting them right away, we push them out and let things build in our mind and in our hearts. Sometimes when we hit the breaking point, it can truly feel like the worst day/week/year of our lives. I promise that if you confront whatever is going on, it's going to make a difference.

Start simple. If you get a midterm back and you didn't do as well as you thought you did, don't let it eat away at your happiness that day. Do something about it. Right then, right there. Whether it's emailing your professor to go over whatever your mistakes were or even just going through old material to help you prepare for the final, I guarantee you're going to feel better about it.

Maybe it's something bigger than that. Maybe it's your friend group and they don't really seem like your friends anymore. Please, please, please, do not ignore this feeling. Talk about it to someone. It doesn't necessarily have to be your friends, it could be your mom who might have more advice than you'd think. It could even be a counselor. Talking to someone who has no idea who you are or what your friends are like can be life changing.

Don't be discouraged, because you CAN and WILL overcome whatever you're going through. The first step is realizing you need something different, and addressing it as soon as possible is going to change your mindset on whatever the circumstance.

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.
