The toughest battles make the strongest soldiers

To The College Girls Who Have Earned Everything They Have The Hard Way

You’re probably not the one with the easiest upbringing, you had difficulties and had to face them on your own, you had issues that you couldn't talk to anyone about, not even your parents because they just wouldn't understand.

But you were also independent, self-taught on most things, and a lot stronger than those kids whose only problem was the fact that their mom forgot to pack them an extra Capri Sun in their lunch box.

I’m talking to the girl whose parents moved from one country to another to make sure the probability of their children’s opportunities expand and soar beyond their wildest dreams, I’m writing to the women who work hard to achieve the best life they could possibly live by balancing their mind, body, and soul into their work and personal life in order to establish and exemplify to society what can really happen when you fight against adversity, and I am lastly expressing myself to the little girls out there who have dreams the size of a princess in her own castle or a famous singer one day in Hollywood. They are the future women of the next generations with a vision of hope so clear that whatever they desire and whatever they dream of becomes a reality.

You're probably a girl who has learned from tough love but has to keep a brave face on no matter what.

But you're also probably, and hopefully, the one who has undying faith in yourself because of all that you've accomplished by your self. You've proabably never had it easy, but you don't really mind because it's made you into the strong women you are today.

Look at everything you have overcome, reflect on the things you have stood up for, be proud of every painful moment that you have turned into something more powerful than expected. I know there are days when all you can feel is the pain and wonder why all the bad things had to happen to you when you didn’t even deserve them. You wonder why some people have it so easy and you don't.

But the truth is, the toughest battles make the toughest soldiers and that's who you are because of it.

There is a blessing in your pain, in your struggle, and in your hardships. There is a light at the end of the tunnel in your disappointments, your frustrations, and your failures. There’s always hope because when you learn from your mistakes, you learn that there are as many chances you get to fix them. You become a better person for it. You become someone who is more open, adventurous, fearless, and confident. You learn to hold your head up high and smile knowing that no one can judge you for the things you’ve done in the past in order to survive because you’ve already made peace with it.

The simple truth is, the odds were never in your favor, but you made sure that in the end they sure were.

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.
