A List Of Thank You's To My First Roommate

Because you'll never forget your first

A List Of Thank You's To My First Roommate
Sarah Dieterich

Dear April,

Wow, what a semester we've had. It's hard to believe we've known each other for less than a year, and you've already become one of my closest friends, and I know I will never forget the time spent in Dirty Daniels together. We were both so nervous moving away from home, and having a quad to ourselves for a week because of band and in the end, I'm so grateful we randomly met on Facebook, because my first semester of college would have sucked so much more without you in my life. So, I wanted to say thank you.

Thank you for making me go out for midnight pancakes during the welcome week after I'd had a bad day because I can now say I got to ride a police Segway because of you. Thank you for making moving away from home to a school where I didn't know anyone a little less lonely. Thank you for not minding when I tagged along with your friends, and when some of them kind of became my friends because of it too. Thank you for not making me feel like I was constantly third wheeling when I hung out with you and your boyfriend. Thank you for the ridiculous amount of Vine references, and knowing how to make me laugh.

Thank you for going to Kroger to get me oyster crackers when I was too sick to walk there. Thank you for sharing your closet, and for offering to combine our snacks. Thank you for always being available to talk even when you seemed like you had a million better things to do. Thank you for letting me pretend to be your little sister on family day because my mom couldn't make it down to visit so you let me join yours. Thank you for helping me feel like I belonged in a place where I felt so alone. Thank you for letting me come sit in on your baton practice because sometimes I needed out of the room and there wasn't anywhere else to go to have some space.

And most of all, thank you for understanding how much it hurt to have to move out for my health. It hasn't even been a month since I switched dorms the first time and it's been so quiet without our late night talks and just hanging out with each other, and I'm so glad I can say you're my friend.

Thank you for being the most wonderful person to share half of our prison-like room with,

Your roommate <3

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.
