A Thank You to My Totally Rad Aunt

To that exceedingly incredible aunt...

A Thank You to My Totally Rad Aunt
T. Kenyon

Dear Aunt _____,

Thank you, first of all, for being downright cool. When life gets too crazy, thanks for being my go-to person. My parents are cool and all, but you’re so easy to talk to. You don’t judge me or scold me, you sit and listen and give advice. Thanks for treating me like an adult, but also thanks for all the cuddles and hugs afterwards.

Thank you for always supporting me. You have never missed a ballet performance or a graduation or a birthday (or even that three hour, insanely cheesy play in tenth grade drama class lol). You are always there cheering me on from the front row. You are always ready and willing to help out wherever help is needed. Your dedication as an aunt in unfathomable. I cannot thank you enough for always being by my side.

Thank you for making me try new things. Who knew goat cheese could be so delicious?! Or that I can pull off flowy pants?! Thanks for constantly pushing me to explore life and to have fun while doing it. Without you in my life, I would still be eating Kraft singles and wearing plaid Bermuda shorts.

Speaking of plaid Bermuda shorts, thank you for being my shopping buddy when it comes to clothes. Shopping for clothes is a terrible, terrible chore, but with you, it’s so much fun! Your keen eye for fashion comes in handy when I try to match polka dots and zebra print. Also, your ability to spot a bargain from a mile away has probably saved me hundreds. But even better than a bargain is your totally rad closet. I love strutting around in your vintage clothes that you let me borrow. You’re the best fashionista I know.

Most importantly, thank you for always taking care of me. Whether it’s sending me food at school, calling to check up on me, or cuddling up and watching Disney movies together, I always feel so incredibly loved when I’m with you. Thank you for taking care of me through the break-ups, the friendship fights, the bad grades, the period cramps, the wardrobe fiascos, the head colds, the full-rack of ribs cravings, and just about everything else life can throw at a young woman. You’re the absolute best.

Thank you for always loving me unconditionally and abundantly.

All my love,

Your (*cough* favorite) niece.

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.
