I Am Most Thankful For My Parents This Season

My parents went from neighbors to lovebirds in a little town in Georgia. They were always friends but never saw a relationship until they became closer down the line. I remember my grandmother telling me how she gave my dad my mom's number and that event started their love story. They were not able to really dive in into their relationship because my mom went off to college 8 hours away. Now, this was God because my mom just so happen to come back to GA for a year and that is when their relationship really starts to blossom.

March 20, 1999, my parents became one, and a year later their twins were born. My parents sacrificed a lot for love. They got married young and was not able to finish their degrees because God had other plans for them. God saw them fit to raise 2 babies because he knew them together, was a power that no one could never come between. So at this moment, I thank you, mom and dad, for being a source of getting my brother and me back to health. I thank you for always praying for us and thinking positive in a situation I know that was not easy. Thank you for not giving up on us!

My brother and I are now 18 years old and we need Y'all more than ever. We are now going our separate ways and living the life God called us to do. Because of you and dad, we are able to know how to act in different situations and I thank you for your endless knowledge. Thank you for disciplining us when we did wrong and awarding us when we did well. Thank you for listening to us and giving us the advice to get through.

This season I thank you unconditionally because you two deserve it. Without you all, your baby girl would not have graduated high school with a 3.7. I would not be given the chances of applying for scholarships, attending my prom and knowing right from wrong. Thank you, dad, for loving me, because I don't have to look for love somewhere else. Thank you, mom, for being and staying strong, because you have taught me how to be a strong black woman and thank you God for blessing my parents with Maliq and me.

Never take your parents for granted. They do certain things because they want to see you succeed, not fail. So I leave you with this, love your parents like there is no tomorrow. Thank your parents even if you think they are wrong. Thank your parents for just dealing with you.

Thank you, mom and dad. I love you both more than you'll ever know..

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.
