The Message Behind 'He's Not The Sun, You Are'

The quote that often gets lost has the biggest message.

The Message Behind 'He's Not The Sun, You Are'

In this day and age, I feel that, as a society, many of us focus on the phrase by Meredith Grey saying "Pick me, choose me, love me." Even I just told someone last week to pick between me and another girl, just to be told I wasn't wanted.

Do you think I was in pain? Absolutely. I was heartbroken that I had spent time and effort on someone for them to just lie to me and hurt me. How do you think it felt when I looked at him with tears in my eyes, asking him why he did this to me? It was absolutely awful.

However, as a couple days have passed, I have found myself continually reflecting on a phrase by Christina Yang, Meredith Grey's best friend. She said, "He's not the sun, you are."

That iconic phrase is often forgotten, as we focus on the famous phrase Meredith said. We often take it upon ourselves to scream from the rooftops that we deserve love, and more times than not, we get hurt by those people we let into our lives like that.

However, we have to remember one thing: Our friends and family will always be there to pick us up when we are at our lowest. They will love us as we are, and expect nothing less. They will go above and beyond to remind you that you are enough, and you deserve more than what that one person did to you.

Love is wonderful, and we all want to be in love. I get that. However, knowing that YOU are the sun and in power of your own life is something that we often forget and let fall to the wayside.

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.

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.
