To My Sister Who Was Never There, Thank You

I still wonder if you ever loved me.

To My Sister Who Was Never There, Thank You

Para mi hermana querida,

Sis, our father was too young when he had you with your mother but you still came into this world. Who knew you would've come with such hate towards me. What did I ever do? I've asked myself that for the past 19 years of my life.

Thank you for not being there when I was born.

Thank you for not being there for my first birthday or on any of my birthdays.

Thank you for always being the last one to congratulate me on my birthday, a day late.

Thank you for never being there to teach me to ride a bike or to read a book.

Thank you for never teaching me about periods or bras.

Thank you for never teaching how to conquest my crush.

Thank you for never me there for my high school graduation.

Thank you for never giving me your shoulder to cry on.

I still wonder if you ever loved me. You never mentioned to me but neither did I. Our father would constantly talk nice about you. But you would constantly talk crap about me.

How is it my fault I came into this world? How is it my fault your boyfriend cheats on you every time? How is it my fault you have different dads for all three kids of yours?

I never grew up with you but thank you. Thank you for those times you made me cry.

Thank You for those times you cursed me out and told me, I wasn't going to get anymore.

This is your hermanita, telling you today. Thank you because, in one way or another, you made me stronger. I learned how to ride a bike. I learned to read. I handle my first crush pretty great. I graduated from high school with honors. Soon this girl who was supposedly a nobody will be the best Physician Assitant there is in God's name. So, thank you, sis.

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.
