See You In A Little Bit

Sadness tends to linger.

See You In A Little Bit
Matea Paveskovic

The color of your face kept getting paler,
As I realized you were a thing of past,
Except you were not a thing,
And I thought we'd last,
A lot longer than we did,
Eternity if not a little more,
Would have been my bid,
Now, I walk on the unaccompanied shore,
We're flying solo tonight, both me and the sea,
We're doing okay I guess, the waves keep us alive you see,
And I'm wearing this pretty dress,
I bet you'd smile if you were here,
It's crimson, a shade you adored,
Oh, look my eyes let go off another tear

They seem to have struck a chord, both the ocean and my longing eyes,
Is that why they say, "love never dies"?
Ha, fantastical isn't it? All parts of this story, every bit?
You'd wish it were true, or wouldn't you?
Well, one can keep wondering, as I wait for that phone to ring,
And stroll around till the feet give up,
Oh, there's a hiccup!
Wait, are you missing me? Or have I created a tale in my own head?
I think I'll just let it be, Even though it stops me from moving ahead.

It would be nice to know you didn't care,
Would I ever accept that though?
Among the stars as the night lies bare,
Am I going to admit to an all-time low?
You'd wish, wouldn't you? Since that's what happens to lost souls?
Give me a moment or two, let me at least try to fix these holes.

What are you doing tonight anyway?
Hitting the bar or chasing meaningless would-bes?
Hoping it would last just a whole night?
You're like a watermelon growing on trees.
Ouch! I don't know why I said that. Hurts, doesn't it?
A little, perhaps? Ah, no! You don't have time for that shit.

Sorry, I forgot, how occupied with yourself you were,
A streak of vanity must guard you at all times, no?
Oh, I'm going to need another beer,
It drains me to talk about you but I wouldn't want to break the flow.

It comes every now and then,
This little feeling of despair,
Although I cannot remember the last time when,
My crazy heart seemed to care,
For a drink of cosmopolitan love. What is this? Some mid-life crisis?
Or a message from above? Well, the devil talks, quite similar to ISIS.
There are bigger problems, you know? I must go and deal with them,
For now you can cry, for having lost a gem,
I may or may not be talking about me,
But for tonight I'm putting an end to 'us' or 'we'.
See you…in a little bit.

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.

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.
