I Still Think About You

even though you destroyed me.

I Still Think About You

I think about you all the time.

Maybe not every day…but at least once a week...

and when I do my body automatically shrugs.

I literally have a physical reaction to the thought of you.

Google defines a shrug - as a raise of one's shoulders slightly and momentarily to express doubt, ignorance, or indifference.

Damn, google hit it right on the head with that one.

For a moment my eyes get heavy and my whole body fills with fucks, what ifs, and indifference.

the “fucks”

well, they send me to flash backs of every inch of your smile, every moment of hearing your laugh echo around in my head, and the way thinking about you brings about the most innocent of smiles on my face. I begin to doubt my choice of walking away from someone as captivating as you. I hear sad melodies in my head as images of you and I fly through my mind.

the “what ifs”

make me feel like I’ve just bungee jumped off the steepest of cliffs and as I’m falling...the entire world around me freezes and my head fills with questions of doubt, because...what if...

I was the one who was in the wrong,

or if I was the one who gave up too soon,

or if it was my fault for trying to fix you.

Then as soon as that bungee cord snaps me back up, I feel torn, because I still fucking care. I gave you every part of my heart and you acted with such ignorance that only a fool could be capable of, yet you still had enough knowledge to tear me apart. I wish you could read this right now. Maybe then you'd be able to see what you did to me. All I ever wanted was to simply love you and for you to love me just the same. It was that simple and instead of admitting that you weren’t worthy of my love you made me feel like less than nothing for wanting something that I DESERVED.

So, I guess I’m “indifferent” now.

It was supposed to be me and you, but all you ever thought about was you. It's been awhile since we've spoken and I'm okay. I have filled my life with people and things that care about me. Gone are the nights of crying about coming home to you. Happy is the way I feel when I wake up. Important are my dreams that you wanted to crush. Doubt is no longer a fear that I have. Ignorance is bliss when it comes to knowing how you're doing.

I still think about you, but when I do it almost always makes me remember how much I still fucking hate you for letting me love you.

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.
