First of all, I just want to say "thank you." Thank you for your support, your endless love, and your huge heart. You are a person who has impacted my life so much, and I wish everyone had a kind heart like you.

You were always there for me when Mom number one couldn't be — from all the countless memories, carpools, family gatherings, all the stuff you involved me in and invited me to, feeling like I was a part of your family, and you letting me drive your car when I got my permit and I almost hit a pedestrian (lol), or the times you took Sarah and I shopping in Omaha.

At the time, I didn't realize how much of an impact you had and have made on my life. I wish I could tell my 12-year-old self to appreciate you like I do now. Thank you for always supporting me and loving me like I was your own.

I know this year has been a tough year for you, and I just wanted to say "thank you." Life hasn't always been easy and perfect. You were a person I could turn to for anything and everything, and I just wanted to say "thank you." When I truly needed a family to turn to — when my family was falling apart, you and your family came in with open arms — you were there for me every step of the way.

I basically lived at your house and cooked dinner with your family every night; at the time, I didn't realize that was what I needed. I feel like I haven't been as present in your life lately, because I'm in school and I've been traveling the world, but I want you to know that I'm always there for you, I support you, and I love you.

You make me so proud to be a part of your life. Your kindness, your passion, your will — it's amazing how you love people the way you do. Thank you again — I will never stop saying it. I miss you and appreciate you and love you. I hope to see you soon.

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.

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.
