A Thank You Note To My Haters

A Thank You Note To My Haters

Dear Haters (“You-Know-Whos"),

Thank you for always doubting me and always trying to bring me down. Thank you for laughing at all of my failures and being filled with pride when you outshine me in school and, I guess, life in general. Thank you for spreading all gossip that there is about me and about the shameful shenanigans that I got into last night. Believe it or not they were pretty fun, but you wouldn't know since you weren't there. Instead, you found amusement in talking about them, which is perfectly ok since I am pretty entertaining. The judgmental glances and the slight roll of the eyes whenever I graced you with my presence was actually the highlight of some of my days, and they will be forever appreciated.

I am impressed that you know that some of the negative things that you say about me can hurt me on the inside. You have a talent of seeing beyond my “give no sh*ts" exterior and know how I am insecure about myself at times and how the opinions that others have towards me can mean a lot. Sometimes, the hiding that I do fails and you can see how easily bothered I am when I do fail or make a fool of myself. Congrats, you can read me well.

Honestly, you do not get the credit that you deserve. Trying to bring me down takes a lot of effort and quite frankly, you should consider it a job and maybe can even put it on a resume. I am using the word maybe because in reality you will never be able to put it on a resume due to your lack of success with it. You will never be successful at that job because you cannot bring me down!

Yeah, you can read me well but not well enough. You fail to see that failure and adversity only empower me. I might be insecure about myself at times, but my insecurity only leaves room for self-improvement. The thrill that you get from seeing me make a fool of myself or fail at something only inspires me to work harder. In return, I receive a thrill when I see the look of surprise on your face when I outshine you and succeed. What can I say? I don't follow the status quo and I like exceeding expectations and doing the unexpected. Your low expectations of me make it pretty easy to continue surprising you.

For the most part though, I am pretty satisfied with who I am because it is obvious that you see me as a threat. Otherwise, you wouldn't hate me so much. Your genuine hatred towards me only serves as an indicator that I am amazing and am doing something right.

Like Beyoncé, I love all of you, my haters, and I will keep on working towards being "flawless" due to you all. Once again, thanks for all that you do. Never stop hating.

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.

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.
