To The Person Who Is Ready To Give Up

Whether you are struggling in college or in a job...don't give up yet.

When in high school you have so much going on and basically your whole life revolves around work and school. Most of us have our parents to guide us and support us through it all. But when you get to college or work life afterward, your parents kind of take a step back or completely take a step back from being that backbone.

To the person who is struggling, don't give up. We all are going through different things that challenge us and make us want to give up. Life gets hard when you're on your own but just know better times are ahead. Your 20s are meant to find out who you are and what you want to do with your life. But also, they are meant to have fun because once you hit your 30s most of the time, your life slows down and there are more important things than going out all the time and not worrying about things.

Currently, my anxiety is at the top of its game again. The stress that I have from school doesn't help it either, frankly, it just makes it way worse. Many times this semester I have wanted to give up and say I'm going home. But I didn't because I know that this is important for my future and for me. But I have to remind my self to have some time for myself and to do things that I enjoy which helps tremendously. I have decided to get back into things that I hadn't done in a while but also try to explore new opportunities.

Just think, if you give up right now what are you going to do? Will you be ahead of where you are right now? Will you be happier in the long run than at the end of this long run opportunity that you're in right now? Will it really be worth it?

So if you're that person who is ready to give up, just think of the outcome. Think about how you are learning either through classes about your future or through work about your future it's all worth it. Your outcome will be greater than what you give up! Find hobbies that interest you and make sure you have fun! Its easier said than done, but its a learning game. And that is life, a learning game of yourself and the outside world.

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.
