A Thank You To My Second Momma

Second moms; we all have one. They are the greatest. Especially in your first year of college. From the extra love, laughs, the food... they are the extensions of our actual moms when we need just a little more motherly wisdom each and everyday.

To mine, here is a list of all of the things that I am forever grateful for. A list to which I'm sure everyone can relate:

The Food

From hot dogs, to walking tacos (my personal favorite) to the never-ending supply of Cheetos; thank you for always feeding me. The queen of care packages, I would have run out of peanut butter and my favorite candy this semester without you.

The Stories

Where all of the wisdom comes from. I love every single story. College stories, everyday stories, and so many life lessons. Many ten minute visits have turned into three hour conversations once the stories come out; I cherish every minute and every story.

The Laughs

Undoubtedly my favorite thing. Thank you for all of the laughs. From belly laughs, to small texts to just make me giggle a little. Even on the tough days, five minutes into a conversation I've most likely already laughed to the point of tears.

For Always Listening

For two hour long tearful phone calls, quick "heys," and the never ending questions... thanks for always answering the phone. (Or taking your spot at "the counter" whenever I need to talk.) When you say "call me anytime" you really do mean it; though we both know the magical time is at 10 am on Monday mornings.

For Just Being You

To sum up, you're really awesome. I never say it enough, but I hope my appreciation for everything you do never goes unnoticed. Though the food and the stories are important, most of all thank you for loving me like your own. I could never begin to explain how extremely blessed I am to have someone like you in my life.

Lots of love to you, Chatty Rose. ♡

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.

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.
