I'm Still Not OK With Robin Williams' Passing

It’s almost been three years since the beloved Robin Williams passed away and I’m still not okay. Don’t get me wrong, I never knew him personally but the feelings he bestowed upon audiences is what really grabs a person emotionally. It’s like when you pick up a good book and you get attached to this perfectly described character. See, he had this light about him that just makes people smile, feel warm, and even laugh. When the news of his passing spread I can’t be the only one to say that we all felt kind of heart broken. I felt as my memories were being taken from me, like I was losing a piece of my childhood. Robin Williams was more than just an actor; he was a childhood friend.

Through his passing I lost those mysterious Arabian nights, a caring father figure, my very first Peter Pan, and a man with a brilliant mind. He was there through Mrs. Doubtfire and Genie when I needed a laugh. He gave me my first real sense of Peter Pan in Hook. He even fascinated me in Awakenings where he stared as a doctor taking care of patient with an extreme form of parkinsonism. Robin Williams could falsely execute any persona he was asked to relay.

The sad truth of it all is we have to learn to move on one day; today is not that day. Well, not for me. I will continue to rewatch his movies till my dying day and I will share his movies with others. I think Robin Williams would at least like to be remembered as a man who inspired happiness and creativity in so many. He was our childhood hero that kept children happy through the most difficult times, even when he was hurting on the inside too.

Thank you, Robin Williams for everything you did. You are still dearly missed.

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.

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.
