A Letter To My Roommate

Thanks for not letting me totally ruin my life...

A Letter To My Roommate

Dear roomie,

When we first moved into this tiny space together we couldn't wait to move out, but now that the time is near it is a little scary. When we chose to live together last minute last year, we were probably both unsure of the year we would have together. From the late nights we went crazy writing papers, to spontaneous trips to Sweet Frog, and all of the Usher jam sessions in between, we went from just being roommates to being friends. Thanks for taking me in your squad as one of your own.

I am forever grateful for you dealing with me. I know I'm a hot mess. Yes I mean that about my life and living space. Even when you judged my poor life decisions, I knew it was with love.

Thanks for encouraging my naps, and when I really needed to, encouraging me to do my homework or laundry. You were there for me this year through all of my struggles, and even though you usually laughed at me, I'm glad you were there (especially the times we struggled together).

I'm sorry for all of the times I tortured you with Disney songs and country music, and the time I woke you up at 8 a.m. with a stranger and an atomic bomb alarm (thank you for not killing me after that one, I deserved it) I think you definitely helped improve my music taste over the year. I'm not sure what I'll do next year without you there keeping me up to date with the latest Usher or J Cole. We may be living in different places next year, but know you're my roomie for life.

I will definitely make myself at home in your new place. If you ever contemplate dropping out and moving to Atlanta or Disney World like we planned, don't hesitate to call because you know I'll have my bags packed.

We may be living in different places next year, but expect me to come over at any given time and encourage you to stop working and watch some Netflix. So thanks again for everything. I couldn't have gotten through this year without you. You helped me through a lot of problems and bad decisions and definitely talked me out of totally ruining my life. I owe a lot to ya! Cheers to senior year! Can't wait to see where life takes us, love you K Watts.

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.
