To the man who broke my heart.

To the man who broke my heart.

You were everything I thought I needed. You made me smile and laugh. Your hugs made me feel safe and warm. You were my happy place.

To the man who broke my heart.
to me

I find myself still thinking about memories from back then and what our time was like together. How was so i daft to let you in? I wish I paid attention to those red flags instead of being so deeply in love with you.

You made me feel so alone when you were sitting five feet from me. You turned my mental health issues into wars when I was already going through them in my head. You abandoned me in the moments I need you most. I cried myself to sleep countless times thinking everything was my fault when it in fact, wasn't.

It's been months and although the pain is no longer with me; it still lingers.

I can still feel your caresses on my face.

The way your hand would feel in mine.

When is it appropriate to delete all of our pictures? When do the feelings just stop?

You left like it was nothing.

Without a glance.

Without a goodbye.

Like it was just so easy.

You would call me your only friend and make it seem like you were all alone in this big bad world and I would be your shoulder to cry on but when were you ever mine?

Am I suppose to sit here and wish you well when I wish you nothing but the pain you brought me? Am I suppose to lie to everyone and say I'm okay when I'm not? When does it get easier? When can I stop hating you for what you put me through?

Breaking up with someone is like a roller coaster. On some days I hate you, others I cry missing you.

I never asked for this. I never wanted to feel this way. How do you just up and leave someone that you're supposedly in love with? That you wanted to marry and have kids with?

How come I didn't realize I was being used?

I don't wish you the best.

I hope you end up with a girl who treats you the way you treated me and that you realize your mistakes. Do better. Be better.

So when someone comes along that loved you the way I did, you'll know to not mess it up the way you messed me up.

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.

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.
