People Always Get Used To Beauty Though...

An idea from a book has consumed my thoughts and is the current reason I smile even when life gets me down sometimes. It has reminded me that when life seems a horrible abyss of negativity and bad times, it takes effort but is worth it to say “hey you don’t have it that bad.” But this quote goes far deeper and brings me a bit of clarity and awakening in any present negative situations and, most likely, in future situations. The book speaks of the weather in Amsterdam and how the people who visit find it magical, but those who are residents find it pesky and annoying. The reality is, in life we forget to be grateful about what we have and, furthermore, we forget to be grateful for the people we have in our lives.

Part of why I feel we lose ourselves in relationships and the reason why we seemingly fall out of love is simply because than that we no longer see the beauty in the person we are with. Lord knows at one point in the beginning, you look at the person you’re with and you can’t seem to exist without them. It’s like you can’t go a minute without wanting to touch them, just to be reminded they are there and they do exist and they are yours. The stars have finally aligned and given you your other half, the person to laugh and cry with, the person you may want to spend your future with, etc. Until they’re no longer yours because years have passed and you have forgotten why they are beautiful and why you fell in love in the first place.

Just like that everything is lost and forgotten. The beauty is gone and somehow the light you saw around that person seems to have dimmed. Maybe it happened to you with a person, maybe with a job you loved, or a friendship that was once your favorite. Now, if you’ve been there, or are residing in that place, do me a favor and look around… Get up and walk away from that mindset because there is still and always has been beauty around you. It just takes effort sometimes to see it and feel it. But with someone or not. Having the perfect job or not. Having this friend or that friend. Whether life is handing you lemons or some other bright and colorful fruit or if life is handing you a bit of crap, you can still find the beauty in everything.

I promise.

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.
