See You Later

"From the day that I met you I knew that I would love you till the day I die. And I will never want much more. And in my heart I will always be sure. I will never forget you. And you’ll always be by my side till the day I die." -- Zara Larrson

See You Later

Peter Pan once said, "Never say good-bye because saying good-bye means going away and going away means forgetting." Although all see-you-laters in life included going away, my see-you-laters have never included goodbye or forgetting. This see-you-later is no different. I'm writing this because I have to say see you later to one of my best friends for a while and I want her to understand what exactly that means.

1. I'm devastated and I know you are too, but time heals all

2. You're simply going away for a period of time

You will be back and the three musketeers will be reunited as if you weren't even gone. A semester will fly by and you'll be back stronger than ever. And richer, too, which means milkshakes on you, right? Kidding, but not really.

3. I will miss you more than I can ever express to you

I promise to not beg you to stay, because I know this is what's best for you, and I support you 100 percent although I wish you didn't have to go. I also know you will visit, which makes you leaving a little bit easier.

4. You will not be forgotten

I couldn't forget you even if I tried. You and I shaved our heads together, bald b!t@h*s forever and always we'll be.

5. You will not be replaced

Again, I couldn't replace you even if I tried. No one knows how to fix my nap hair like you do or give me wings so on "fleek" I can fly away from all of my problems.

6. You're expected to stay in touch

OK, Becca Ann? Since you can't go to the caf and eat at date tables with me until you return, I may or may not have to bring you to the caf via FaceTime to share some sweet potato fries.

7. Please don't be upset

I know this is hard to request from me to you, but I want nothing but happiness for you. So cry a little, eat a little, drink a little, but then put on your lipstick and a big smile, and show the world how fierce you are, best friend.

8. I love you

In case you didn't know, I love you and a see-you-later cannot and will not change that. I love everything about you: the good, the bad and the ugly.

9. See you later

By the time this is published, our see-you-later will have already came and gone, so as you're reading this remember it wasn't a goodbye, which I'm terrible at -- it was a see you later. See you later, next semester, and the semester after that. I'll be seeing you later for years to come. You're my bestie for the restie. There is no escaping that. So I'll see you later!

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.
