You make learning worthwhile.

A Thank You Letter To The Teacher Who Always Tries

To my teacher who always thinks of others first,

Thank you. I don't know how you do it. Honestly. I think of how hard you work, and I am just amazed. You put in time for every student you have, those who walk by you in the hallways, even the parents who complain all the time about the education quality their children are receiving.

My dad is a teacher, so I know the horror stories that come with the job title of "educator." You deal with so much in a year. From lesson plans, to ARD/IEP conferences, to never ending grades, to long days and annoying kids, you really do do it all. You are the hidden superhero.

Some days I can tell when you are done with practically everything. I can tell that you are really struggling, and you feel like everything you do just isn't worth it. But I just want to tell you that it is worth it.

I walk into the classroom, and there you are with a smile on your face, and because of that, it gives me strength. You help me when I am stressed out about not having a high grade. You help not just me, but all your students, find how a little patience and fortitude go a long way. You show us that sometimes life isn't just about how you add and subtract numbers, but how you count the many joys and memories that you pass by.

Thank you for putting in the effort that so many others are not willing to do.

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.
