From Diapers To Graduation Gowns, Thank You, To My Best Friend, For Navigating Through Life With Me
Emma Schoth

As I turn nineteen this week, I'm feeling a little nostalgic about all the blessings this life has given me so far, and one of the best just so happens to be you. With all of the craziness that life has thrown at us, you've stuck with me through it all, and it's time to thank you for everything you've done for me as my best friend.

Thank you for all of the belly laughs. 

You know that feeling when you laugh so hard it starts to hurt? With a friend like you, this feeling never ends. There's just something about the way best friends get each other that just makes everything that is already funny ten times funnier. Thanks for always putting a smile on my face.

Thank you for all of the adventures.

From the little things like driving to get a before practice snack to somehow fitting ourselves into each other's family vacations, we've done a lot together that's for sure. Thanks for never hesitating to join me on whatever crazy adventure I get us into.

Thank you for always being my shoulder to cry on.

Through everything, you are the person I can count on. You are the best listener I know, and it makes my heart so happy to know that I have you. You have been there with me through the best and worst times. Thank you for being the best unofficial therapist out there.

Thank you for being there through all of the memories.

From the first day of preschool to taking pictures outside of those gym doors in our purple gowns, you've been there with me through it all. All of the firsts, the lasts, and even those awkward times in between were done with you. I'm so thankful we get to share all of these memories.

Most importantly, thank you for being my person.

You are the Abbey to my Emma, my person, and forever friend. You get me. Being your best friend just makes sense.

Thanks for letting me do this crazy thing called life with you. No matter what curveball life throws me, there is one thing I can count on — it's that you'll be there through everything. Thank you for being my forever friend.

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.
