A Thank You Letter To My High School Teachers

You formed me into a student that was ready for college and life; I thank you for that.

A Thank You Letter To My High School Teachers

To my high school teachers,

Thank you for pushing me past my limits when I wanted to quit. You saw a potential in me that I didn’t see in myself. Whether it was a main subject, such as English, or an elective like theater, you wanted to see me succeed, no matter what I said I couldn’t do. I’m thankful for that because I can now see my full potential in college and know what I can or can’t do. Without you all, I may have never ended up at a four-year university.

Thank you for helping me break out of my shell. I came into high school as someone who was mostly shy and kept to herself. The teachers I had my freshman year helped me change that. Without being on the dance team, I wouldn’t have joined theater. Without my theater teacher, I wouldn’t have broken out of my shell as much as I did. I thank you the most for that. My theater teacher, Mr. Standly, forced me to step out of my comfort zone and do things I had never done before. Him doing this helped me succeed in theater through high school, dance through high school and my first two years of college, and just in life in general. I wouldn’t have the friends I have today without these teachers.

Thank you for ignoring me when I complained about the workload that was being given to us. You ignored me because no matter how much I said I couldn’t do it, you knew that I could. You told me that all of this work was nothing compared to the amount we would get in college. Now I can say you were right. Thank you for the workload that you gave me and prepared me for the years in college.

Thank you to those who have kept in touch with me even after I graduated. I know that nothing will change, because y’all do care and would help me to the best of your abilities if ever needed.

Thank you for always being there for us, especially when we lost a classmate, and you lost a student. Y'all were some of the biggest helpers for my graduating class in such an event.

Once again, thank you for everything you’ve done for me through the years. I’m eternally grateful for you all!

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.
