Things I Forgot To Thank My College Best Friends For

These few thank you's don't even begin to sum up how much you mean to me.

Things I Forgot To Thank My College Best Friends For

College is a stressful time, full of new surroundings and new people. Most likely you came into this strange place alone but by the time you graduate, will leave with a group of lifelong friends. Here's a few thank yous' I forgot to give to my college best friends.

1. Thank you for stress eating with me.

There is no one else I would rather get McDonald's drive thru with at 1am before a midterm.

2. Thank you for being my mom when I need it.

I never realized how much we need Mothers in college. Luckily my best friend often fills that position. She is always there for me after I end things with a serious boyfriend, when I get sick and need someone to take me to the doctor and she's the one who talks me out of reckless decisions (like driving through blizzards and such).

3. Thank you for listening to me complain about college until 2am.

And for always telling me what I need to hear, rather than I want to hear.

4. Thank you for motivating me to go to my dreaded morning classes.

Rise and shine, you grumpy piece of crap!

5. Thank you for helping me through my homesickness.

Going away from home for school can be difficult, but with good friends it will feel like home in no time.

6. Thank you for pulling all nighters with me to help me study.

I will never forget the time you threw my flashcards at my head to keep me awake, you are a true friend.

7. Thank you pulling all nighters with me to party.

Nights of drunken stumbles, claustrophobic parties and midnight trips to Perkin's are mandatory for a full time college student.

8. Thank you for brainstorming new ideas on decorating my dorm room.

I will forever appreciate our late night Pinterest dates and you hanging pictures where I can't reach.

9. Thank you for watching hours of Netflix with me after a long day.

Nothing beats a long day of school like Arrested Development for a few hours.

10. Thank you for not judging me for eating a sleeve of Oreos for dinner.

Eating badly is what college students do!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
