The Stages Of Moving To A New Place As Told By Hannah Montana

It could be the best of both worlds, but you'll always find your way back home.

The Stages Of Moving To A New Place As Told By Hannah Montana

One of the many things I didn't want to hear in my lifetime were my parents saying, "We're moving," especially since I've been living in my house for my whole life. A million thoughts run through your head such as, "Will I still see my friends/boyfriend/girlfriend?" "Where/when are we moving?" "I don't want to move!" You might even shed a tear or two...or a couple hundred. It might even make you nauseous just thinking about leaving behind what you grew up with. Just the thought of "change"—everyone's least favorite word—makes you sick to your stomach and your head spin. I'm sure Miss Hannah Montana/Miley Stewart can relate.

1. Finding out you're moving.

2. Resentment towards your parents.

3. Breaking the news to your friends/significant other.

4. Getting sad just thinking about it.

5. Whenever someone brings up the "m word," in general

6. Getting the grand tour of the new house and realizing it's not all that bad.

7. ...but your immediate reaction is "I hate it."

8. But yet you're slowly learning to accept it the fact that you are moving and there's nothing you can do about it.

9. Realizing you have such little time before the move and you have yet to pack.

10. Finding things from your childhood as you pack.

11. Sitting in your room and thinking of all the memories made in not just your house, but your town.

12. Dealing with random strangers coming inside your house (prospective buyers).

13. Making plans with your friends/boyfriend/girlfriend to visit you.

14. Realizing a new place means new adventures and a new beginning for your family.

Remember Lucas Till from the movie?

15. The day you move... so bittersweet (there may be tears involved).

16. But then you realize you're out of that boring town full of people you never really liked in the first place.

17. Arriving at your new house.

18. Being exhausted from this whole process.

19. But you might as well get used to the new environment because that's where you'll be living till you move out!

I conclude with this insight: whether we are happy or sad has more to do with our attitude than with our situation. We have more control over our attitudes than we do over the things that happen to us. Attitude over situation comes also comes with acceptance. Moving is just another thing I'll have to accept. Remember this if you and your family are moving, too.

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.
