Winter Wonderland

A Mysterious but Yet Wonderful Scene

Winter Wonderland

Mysterious white things flutter down towards me, tickling my face, and melts as it hits it. The white things are cold at first, but then they warm to my skin. What is this wonderful stuff?

My mother once told me this was snow, but I have never experienced it myself, since the Midwest became drastically warm all year round. I was told that this land was once a winter wonderland, mysterious in everyway, covering every square inch with this cold, wondrous white stuff. Creating endless possibilities for new things to do during this cold, but beautiful time. As my father tells me, he used to build snowmen, and have snowball fights with his brothers, and go ice skating and even ski. I do not know what any of those things are, but I can just imagine what they were like by his description.

I stand outside in wonder, staring at the trees as they catch the snow, creating a world that is wonderful and unimaginable at the same time. Snow makes everything become instantly beautiful, the air becomes still; no animals are out and about. The only sound uttered is the sound of the snow crunching under my feet.

I start to notice the snow landing on my dark long hair, making it become white and damp. The amazing part of all of this snow was that each single piece is different. Just like how my mom used to tell me how special I was. Every morning she would make me look in the mirror, and told me that “You are beautiful. You are special. And you can accomplish anything”. To this day I still say that to myself when I am getting ready. I am not the only special one though, all people and animals are special in their own way, they all just do their own thing. Kind of like how the snow floats down to my face. They have no course; they just go on their own. It’s just wonderfully magical.

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.
