to All Of The Abortion providers, Let Me Just Say 'Thank You'

An Open Letter To Abortion Providers Across the United States,

First, thank you. For not only recognizing mine and a million other women's agency but for also actively choosing every day to protect and provide it.

Secondly, your dedication towards consistently providing women reproductive rights is one of the main reasons why I want to pursue being a doctor. Or at the very least, take the same courage, selflessness, and patience you evoke every day at your job to other aspects of my life because I know that something as trivial as walking to work becomes a battle in itself with a crowd of anti-choice protestors holding falsified pictures of aborted fetuses and screaming death threats.

We recognize the effort you put in to ensure these services are still relatively affordable, especially with the rising cost due to unnecessary TRAP laws designed to close down clinics like yours. Whether it is charging less for unnecessary second ultrasound visits or doing more jobs than simply your assigned one to keep the clinics open. We know that in this line of work there are never "slow days" because unfortunately there are not many others who are doing what you are doing regardless of the high demand.

We acknowledge how this job takes a toll both professionally and personally. Whether it's hospitals not giving you clearance because they are afraid of the backlash of having an abortion provider on staff or the personal fear every time your name appears on sites solely devoted to "eradicating murderers."

These are some places that you can donate or volunteer to ensure abortion providers get the help they need. Whether its offering twenty dollars or volunteering as a clinic escort, anything would help.

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.
