Thank you for being you

Thank You To The Man Who Became A Second Dad To Me

To the man who I now call my second father,

It’s not that I love my Dad any less than I did. He’s still my Dad and I love him more than anything in this world. But never did I ever think that I would welcome another father figure into my life. But then I became part of your family, and you were another person that I could trust. I have always believed that certain people were brought into our lives for a reason, and I am blessed that the world chose you.

I feel extremely blessed to be part of your family, to be around you, your wife and your kids. I feel that everyone has welcomed me as if I was meant to be there. It’s amazing to know that I will always have another person in my life that will do anything for me, and have my back. To do the things that my Dad would do. I can’t thank you enough for being that person.

There are so many things that you have done for me, but these are the things that I want to thank you for:

Thank you for coaching my hockey team when you already have a million things going on with your own kids.

Thank you for always pushing me to do better and be the best possible version of myself.

Thank you for trusting me with your son, he’s the light of my life, and I know how important he is to you.

Thank you for always inviting me to family events, it really makes me feel like part of your family.

Thank you for always picking on me, I know it’s your way of showing you care, and it always puts a smile on my face.

Thank you for the countless phone calls, where you gave me all the parental advice that you had and that I really needed, where you made me feel loved and cared for.

I just can’t express how grateful I am to have someone else in my life that puts up with my s*** even when I know I’m being crazy. I am sorry that you have to parent another 23 year old, but I am grateful that the world chose you to get me through these challenging years of my life. I know I already had one Dad that helped raise me, but I can’t thank you for being the second father figure that had walked into my life. It makes going through life so much easier.

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.
