A thank you letter to my girlfriend's mom.

To My Girlfriend's Mom: Thank You for Raising The Woman Of My Dreams
Tanja Hefner

My girlfriend and I have come from similar background which makes our bond more special. Unfortunately for both of us, it didn't make for an easy childhood. We've both been put through the ringer, struggled with depression, and seen our mothers hurt. As stated before in a previous article, my mother is my rock. However, I've never given my girlfriends mother the long overdue recognition and outward love that she deserves.

To My Girlfriend's Mother,

First of all, I'd like to thank you for creating the beautiful woman I now call the love of my life. Without you guiding her hand, my girlfriend could be somebody completely different. You have almost single handedly shaped her and you have done a wonderful job.

Secondly, I would like to thank you for accepting me and welcoming me into your crazy, dysfunctional family. All of the holidays, kayaking trips, and dinners are appreciated more than you'll ever know. I truly can't thank you enough for treating me like one of your children.

You are a wonderful mother and will always continue to be. I've seen the fire in your eyes when you set out to protect your children and I've seen the love in your heart in the moments when you're truly proud of all of their accomplishments. Having you as part of my support system is truly beneficial and I hope you stay there forever.

I know sometimes you scare me but that is because I never want to overstep my boundaries and disrespect you. Sometimes I feel like you don't like me, but I know you love me, even if it's only for making your daughter happy.

Thank you for the last two years, and thank you even more for the many years to come. Never forget that you're doing an awesome job, no matter what. I know all of these thank yous don't even begin to cover it all, and I may never be able to find all the words to give you what you deserve, but I hope this makes you smile just a little.

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.
