Read This If You Don't Have Your Life Together But Think You Should

Sometimes in life we fall "behind."

It's all fun and games until all your friends know what they want to do with their lives, are with that "special someone" and are experiencing more things in life than you are. Once you realize that you are the friend who has fallen behind it is SO hard to come back after that.

Trust me, I know. I'm surrounded by amazing women every day who know what their major is, know how many kids they want, have the "love of their life" with them. And, I'm just kind of there. Floating around, hoping one day I will finally be able to get my life together too.

You kinda always end up thinking way too much about how better all those around us are doing, and eventually begin to think "well, maybe I can never amount to as much as them," but you are wrong.

Just because you are experimenting with some things that others don't even have to think about doesn't mean you're not just as good as them. Times get tough, things fall through, you WILL lose some people in your life because you're just not on the same page as them. But, just because you don't have all the answers to your entire life by the time you're 18 does not, by any means, correlate to you not amounting to much in life.

Life throws some crazy curveballs, so hang on and enjoy the ride.

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.
