A Thank You Letter To My Parents

Thank you for everything you do for me.

A Thank You Letter To My Parents
Charlotte Mahoney-Mosedale

Dear Mom and Dad,

It couldn't have been easy to deal with my sister and me. I know that you have tried to give us the world even when you really couldn't. I don't give you enough credit for managing everything. Of course things weren't perfect, but I wouldn't have changed a thing about the way I grew up and the things I have learned from you. Everything you've done for me has meant so much and I'm not sure how to begin to express that. Thank you for putting up with my occasional bad attitude, helping me know the difference between right and wrong and for the constant support.

Thank you for being the biggest supporters in every part of my life. You've always encouraged me to do what makes me happy and try new things even when I was scared. Without you there to encourage me, I wouldn't have been able to accomplish more than half of the things that I have. Thank you for showing me that it's okay to fail. You taught me that I just need to learn from that experience and keep trying.

In high school, I know things weren't the easiest. I couldn't have been easy to deal with. I was going through a lot and it was all new to me. You were always patient with me when I didn't understand something. Thank you for being there every step of the way. You were at every choir concert, softball game, show and event I was involved in. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful support system.

You always have some of the best advice to give me and I can go to you anytime. Even while I am at school, I know that you want to hear what is going on in my life and I am excited to tell you about it. Thank you for being proud of me. Thank you for teaching me how to live caring about others but always reminding me that I need to take care of myself too.

I will never be able to say thank you enough, but just know that I am always appreciative of everything you do for me and your constant unconditional love.

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.
