To All The Guy Friends In My Life, Where Do I Begin

Thank you.

To All The Guy Friends In My Life, Where Do I Begin
Maddie Stallings

In high school and even now, I am just the kind of girl that hangs out with boys rather than girls. I have my fair share of girlfriends, but I also have a handful of guy friends.

This is for all my guy friends. The ones who I used to be friends with, am friends with and will be friends with.

Thank you.

Without you boys, I wouldn’t be the person that I am today. You may not realize it, but you have all taught me so much.

I have insight on relationships from a different perspective because I have listened to the boy’s side of things and helped my guy friends.

I have learned more about sports and cars than I ever thought I could have.

I have witnessed the amount of food they consume and know that whenever we hang out, they will love me forever if I bring snacks. I have also learned how to burp extremely loud and to be proud of it.

Being a girl among many boys in a friend group is difficult, and there are times when you feel left out. Honestly, my guy friends are the biggest blessing.

From pretending to be my boyfriend to get the creepy guy to stop talking to me or to make other boys jealous, buying me dinner, helping me move, sticking up for me, protecting me, hanging out with my little brother and helping me fix my car. You guys have seriously done it all.

I cannot thank each and every one of you enough.

Thank you for being my best friends, brothers, pretend boyfriends, and always being just a phone call away.

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.
