Suicide Doesn't Care About You, But That Doesn't Mean You Aren't Worth The Fight

The world needs what you have, don't let suicide tell you otherwise.

Suicide Doesn't Care About You, But That Doesn't Mean You Aren't Worth The Fight

Suicide doesn't care.

Suicide doesn't care if you are black or white.

Suicide doesn't care if you are from Texas or Michigan or South Korea or Italy.

Suicide doesn't care if you are 10 years old or 14 or 35 or 90.

Suicide doesn't care if your dad is an investment banker or school bus driver or a professional athlete.

Suicide doesn't care if you are a world-famous actor or comedian or musician.

Suicide doesn't care if you have tattoos or porcelain skin.

Suicide doesn't care if you are Christian or worship Buddha or don't believe in anything at all.

Suicide doesn't care if you went to college or even graduated high school.

Suicide is ruthless sneaky and it doesn't care about you.

It doesn't care about the gut-wrenching things that you are feeling as you try and fall asleep every night.

It doesn't care about the pain that your mom and little brother would feel if they lost you.

It doesn't care that it has made you a slave to your thoughts and feelings.

It doesn't care that you're confused and hurting.

Suicide doesn't deserve you.

It doesn't deserve your smile, YOU do.

It doesn't deserve the rest that you need, YOU do.

It doesn't deserve your peace, YOU do.

I'm going to be honest, I don't know how to make it better. But I will try my best. If you need to talk to someone, please reach out to me on Instagram. I don't care who you are, I want to help you find someone to talk to.

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.
