Prayers For My Best Friend

All that I want for your life, summed up in one place.

Prayers For My Best Friend
Reagan Paterson

You have blessed my life in more ways than you even know. I pray for nothing less than a life overflowing with love.

For you, I pray for joy in abundance

Not happiness. Happiness is an emotion that comes and goes with the changes of your daily life. I pray for joy that comes only from knowing Jesus.

I pray that you travel the world, but always know where home is

Home is wherever I am. Just kidding (kind of), but seriously--don't forget that even though you may see a lot of extraordinary places, you can always come back home.

I pray that you see yourself the way that I see you

This is a big one. It's honestly offensive when you can't understand why you're so great and why I love you so much. If it helps, I will continue to give you reminders daily of all the ways that you are amazing.

You are incredibly strong; I pray that your strength and resilience are built up daily

You are stronger than most. You have made it through so much already and I have so much faith that you will make it through whatever comes your way.

My prayer is that when troubles come your way, you handle them with grace

Don't let the burdens of life weigh you down, keep moving and handling life in the graceful way that you do.

I pray that you are able to see the natural beauty in yourself

Not only are you nice to look at, you also have a beautiful soul. Lucky is the man who is able to spend his life in the presence of your beauty. Seriously.

I admire your wisdom and I pray that it continues to deepen

You give such solid advice and always have the answers that I need--even when I don't want to hear them.

I pray for a husband who loves you more than I do

This may never happen considering I love you more than Ross loves Rachel, but I'll let a guy try to beat that.

More than anything, I pray that we keep our friendship for a lifetime

Your friendship has been such a blessing in my life and I honestly cannot imagine going through life without you.

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.
