To The Friend Who

“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.”

To The Friend Who

To the friend who convinces me to get out of bed on the hard days by suggesting I take to the couch instead, and sits there with me so that I am not alone even if it’s in silence.

To the friend who gets me out of every bad awkward situation, and usually even notices/senses it before I do, and both laughs with me for the funny ones.

To the friend who always makes sure to eat lunch or dinner with me even if we aren’t eating the same thing, and even cooks it half of the time, so that I never eat my meal by myself.

To the friend who I can talk about literally anything with, no matter how casual or serious: from our religious beliefs or politics to “what ever happened to Honey Boo Boo?”

To the friend who texts me to make sure I’m okay when I don’t get to our class before her, or if I don’t return within a 10-minute time frame than usual.

To the friend who calls the counseling center when I’m not okay, even if she makes them come to my room at 8:00 at night right after I get stuck in an elevator without my knowledge.

To the friend who doesn’t take it too hard or personally when I cancel plans or say no to ones she’d like to go do because I’m too sad or too tired or too whatever it is this time.

To the friend who will agree to leave early from the plans I for once decided to go agree with when she can sense I’m worn out or anxious.

To the friend who sits and listens to all of my absolutely bizarre dreams or the things I saw/heard that swore was real. “Did you hear that?”…“No”…“Shit”…*mutual laughter* is a recurring conversation between us.

To the friend who leaves me notes before we go on break sand always makes sure I get home okay, and listens to me talk about my entire weekend once I’m back or reads my novels of texts during.

To the friend who always makes sure I eat, even if it’s convincing me to get pizza for the 5th meal in a row or an entire bowl of Cheetos, and suggests that I also get chocolate milk for later since she knows it cheers me up.

To the friend who is my rock, my light, my compass, my chef, my therapist, my mom, my sister, you are a forever friend.

Thank you for being you, today and every day.

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.
