Poetry On Odyssey: Lonely Heart

I sure hope that a lonely heart isn't suppose to be my fate...

Poetry On Odyssey: Lonely Heart
William Hancock

One by one's
Two by two's
They all walk hand in hand.
But who am I to refuse?
I guess I'm just the one man marching band.

The ache of being lonely is sad.
I guess I should just cover myself with a paper bag.
I feel like I'm in the garbage can,
Guess I'll have to be my own number one fan...

My phone forever haunted by ghosts
All of them with their Cheshire grins
I end up thinking the most,
But in the end...I don't win.

Always the bridesmaid, never the bride.
I always got picked last on the playground, so who am I to be surprised?
They all smile and hold hands
When in reality what I want is something everyone has...

That person to say "hope your day was great"
Or "let's go on a romantic date!"
But I guess I'm supposed to be alone, which you could call a suspected undramatic twist of fate.

Everyone has found their boat and ticket to ride.
While I sit on the docks wondering...where is mine?

Alone at the harbor with nowhere to go, I guess I'll sit here and wait.
But I sure hope that a lonely heart isn't supposed to be my fate...

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.

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.
