The Lost Girl

It’s ok to be lost and not know what you want to do. Embrace it, have as much fun while you can.

The girl who thinks she lost herself... Everybody loses themselves along the way and some people find themselves again easier than others. Just because it takes you a little longer to find yourself doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you.

Some people just need more time to figure out what they want to do and where their head is at. You lose yourself and sometimes it’s hard to get back to where you were before because, in reality, you’ll never be the same as you once were and sometimes that’s a hard concept to understand.

But, when you do find yourself, it’s the best thing that could possibly happen, you’re the girl who doesn’t really have any friends or want to do anything but go to work and school and even that a struggle. You often find yourself at the cemetery talking to your grandpa and at your childhood best friend's cross near where she died because sometimes it’s easier to talk to people who aren't really here because you don’t get the dirty looks or lectures like you would from someone who is alive and can give commentary.

It’s easier to cry by yourself and in front of a grave or memorial because no one is usually around you to judge you or see you. You’re still finding yourself, what you want to do in life, when you want a family, and everything like that. People who already know what they want to do in life may not have everything figured out, that's what they think they want at the time but things change - nothing ever stays the same or works out exactly how you want it. So, it’s ok to be lost and not know what you want to do. Embrace it, have as much fun while you can.

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.
