Thank You For Cheating On Me

If I can overcome the lowest amount of disrespect, I can overcome anything.

Thank You For Cheating On Me

I now know the deepest pain- the pain that feels like its grabbing your insides and ripping them out.

I went through phases: shocked, hurt, disbelief, questioning, to eventually being numb. But overall it only made me a stronger person.

So thank you for showing me what true love is NOT. It's NOT nonchalantly going home with some random girl from the bar then continuing that relationship into the next week, talking to her about things we've talked about, and treating this girl like I don't even exist. It's NOT coming home to me the next weekend and acting completely normal and guiltless, because this is obviously not a first for you. If you'll do it "once," you'll do it again and again. And not only to me but to any vulnerable girl you can get to believe all of your lies and excuses. And it's easy to believe you, because you are good at what you do. And you know that.

Love is NOT admitting to what you have done only after you know that I know. And then proceeding to try to convince me that it would never happen again. It's NOT erasing me from your memory like I was absolutely nothing to you. You did this, not me. So why do I feel like you're still the one who got out easy?

Thank you for showing me the kind of "man" that you are now, rather than later, like we had planned. You were unworthy of my love. I know now that you were not the "man" I thought you to be, and that's okay. You will only be added into my book of lessons, because that's exactly all that you are: a lesson learned.

You came into my life for a reason, and I don't regret my time spent with you. I needed to experience this for myself. I'm not going to give you the satisfaction of ruining my trust for men, because I know not all men are stupid like you. The right man for me will see exactly what he has in front of him and would do absolutely NOTHING to mess that up, drunk or not.

So once again, thank you for showing me what a real man is not. This one's for you.

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.
