To My Niece, Here Are My Promises To You

I hope you're preparing yourself to enter the world and join our big crazy family.

To My Niece, Here Are My Promises To You

To my little tater tot,

You may still have some time before you make your grand appearance into the world, but that doesn't mean that the world isn't currently preparing for your arrival. Little do you know that while you're currently cozied up inside your mama's belly, a bedroom is being put together for you, baby books are starting to fill your shelves, and your closet is filling up fast (and let me tell you, your wardrobe is CUTE).

With this being said, you are the sweet bundle of joy that is going to make me an Auntie and words cannot describe how ecstatic I am to meet you. I have a few promises to make to you that I will continue to keep from now until always.

I promise to always protect you. Becoming your Auntie is already one of my greatest privileges. No matter how tiny you are or how grown you become, I promise to always defend you and keep you safe. This world can be scary sometimes, but with how many people are going to have your back as you continue to grow, you don't need to be afraid. The world is going to be your oyster. Conquer it and take risks. With every risk you take, you have a very protective Auntie standing behind you.

I promise to be the fun Auntie. You're gonna need a fun Auntie who you feel comfortable to tell anything to. I'm going to have lots of stuff for you to play with whenever you come over and I will always feed you with the tastiest treats (once you're old enough to eat chocolate). I will lay on the floor and color pictures with you all day long and let you pick every movie I put in for you to watch before dozing off into your afternoon naps. You can make the biggest mess you want at my house, in fact, I'll help you make it. You never have to worry about life being dull because you can always come to hang out with your Auntie. Although your parents are pretty fun, too, so I'll be surprised if you're ever bored.

I promise to spoil you every now and then. Yeah, yeah, we all know I'm going to spoil the crap out of you. However, even though I will spoil you, I will still strive to teach you important lessons like sharing and understanding that sometimes you have to earn the good things that come to you. Maybe I'll make a rule that whenever I take you shopping, you can pick out one toy to take home.

I promise to be a good role model for you. As I've grown up I've noticed so much about myself and how what I do has an impact on those around me, especially you, little one. I want to be somebody that you will look up to and admire and I always want to be a good example of how you should behave. I want to encourage you to make good life choices and cheer you on through everything you do in life, no matter what paths you take.

I promise to cherish every moment with you. Starting from the day you're born, I promise to take advantage of every second I get to spend with you. No minute will go wasted and I will truly cherish every moment. From when you're a newborn baby sleeping in my arms, to a toddler running around in their terrible 2's, to a pre-teen who is just now discovering makeup, to your adult years, I promise to never take any of those moments for granted.

I promise to always love you. No matter what, I am always going to love you. When you make mistakes, and believe me, you will, I promise to always forgive you and love you unconditionally.

Words can't describe how excited I am to welcome you into this world and how privileged I am to be your Auntie. The world is going to become a little brighter with you joining us and you're going to be welcomed into the best family. I hope you're gonna be a cuddler because nobody is ever gonna wanna put you down. I hope you are excited to meet me as I am you.

I love you so much already, little one.

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.
