Poetry on Odyssey: Sadly I woke up like this

Oodles of blankets, warm drinks & a desire to feel better tomorrow.

Poetry on Odyssey: Sadly I woke up like this

Wake up in the middle of the night shivering

I do not want to admit it but I can feel the cold coming

I scurry in search of blankets and warmer clothes to keep me warm.

I try falling back asleep knowing I may feel worse by morning

Sore throat, uncontrollable sneezing and an aching body

Sadly I woke up like this.

Slowly I roll out of bed aware of how unproductive this day will be

I cannot even begin to fathom how anything will get done

All I know is I want a bed, hot tea and endless amount of pillows.

Bundled up I make my way to the kitchen

Taking out some honey, lemons and warming up water

Nothing like hot lemonade to make you feel better.

It's time to see how much I can get done

My to-do list tempts as I try crossing things out

I get some homework done, laundry is next

Each time never wavering from a lack of energy.

Checking things of here and there but it's not the same

Hoping for more solutions I make some soup

It only lasts a while but I try to keep going with my day

Getting as much as I can get done.

The day is finally coming to its end

Having exhausted all my options I take medication

In hopes that maybe that will do the trick.

Finally night falls, it's all I've wanted since waking up

I am bundle up in the coziest sleepwear, pull out a new tissue box

And prepare for bed, hoping tomorrow I'll feel a little better

Sadly I woke up like this.

But let's hope tomorrow I do not wake up like this.

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.

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.
