7 Perks Of Having A Younger Best Friend

It truly is the best thing.

Throughout high school, and now college, I have always had my best friend who is one year younger than me. There is nothing to be ashamed about because there are so many reasons why having a best friend younger than you is the best thing!

1. She keeps you feeling young. 

Sometimes I feel old. I know that I am only 19 years old, but I go off to college and I am suddenly irrelevant. I am so thankful to have a best friend that keeps me feeling relevant.

2. Chances are, you have already gone what she is going through.

I cannot count the amount of times one of us has come to the other with a dilemma. The usual response is, "well, this is how I dealt with this." How awesome is it to have someone like that in your life that you can be their own personal therapist?

3. She always knows what cool with the kids these days.

The amount of times I have asked my best friend what would make me cooler, because she is the coolest of them all, is too much to count.

4. She is like the little sister you have always wanted.

I have a big sister, she has two little sisters. This works for the both of us.

5. She is always up for singing Disney tunes.

"What should we listen to?" "Disney?"

6. You will always have a shoulder to cry on.

The tears are real! We have seen each other at our best and definitely at our worst, and a times when we do not want to talk about it, we just hug it out.

7. You know she will always call you her best friend (and vice versa) no matter how far away you are from each other.

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.
