The Void of Yellow: The Power of Green.

This is one of those articles on my page that I do not expect many to understand, but I do hope it leaves you with the thought: "Who am I?"

The Void of Yellow: The Power of Green.
i heart crafty things

I craved yellow for most of my childhood and young adult years.

I craved the warmth of yellow, the feeling of the sun on the back of my warm neck, and the sense of it against closed eyes.

To me, yellow was positivity, it took away all the darkness, the light too powerful to ignore, even with eyes closed.

I dreamt of yellow overtaking me and covering all my wounds in life, longing to simply shine, although I felt I was always a shadow.

I would imagine myself in a field of sunflowers, the sun shining, and I no longer needed to feel who I really was anymore.

Yellow is a personality, one that can truly affect others with attitude, happiness and a sense of belonging.

Until I realized, I had always been emerald green.

I longed for the feeling of yellow, but deep down saw the world through my eyes, wrapped in several shades of green.

My power runs deep within green, the never ending swirls of nature, eyes, and feelings wrapped into one.

I appreciate the down to earth, sensitive and powerful “green person” that I am.

And that is when it all hit me.

I tried to feel the yellow inside, because I felt like no one was giving it to me. I owed myself all the yellow in the world, and that is why I still try to give it to others. I needed yellow, but it was not who I was.

Green is my soul, it covers my eyes, wraps around all of who I try to be- yellow was something that I was just missing for a while.

If you ever need yellow, reach deep down into your body, mind and spirit, and you may just find that you too, have found out who you really are.

If you understand the void of yellow, I am sorry, and you are not alone. The sun will rise again.

Love always, Mel.

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.
