Poetry On Odyssey: What To Think About
Flikr / R. Nial Bradshaw

I sit here, waiting, thinking

About the things I could think about.


I could watch the scenes outside

Through the glass frame.

Maybe I could get ahead on work or

Plan my goals and future.


Perhaps I could think about the

Past and how we all miss it.

I could even think about solutions

To the problems of the world.


All these things I could think about but,

I think I will think about all

the things I can think about.


I wrote this poem on a Sunday afternoon during a long car ride returning home from vacation. I was trying to think of something to do in order to ease the stress over the upcoming week. My mind kept cycling over things I could think or write about as I watched the hills and fields roll by under a grey sky and droplets of rain slid down the window. I could not decide whether to come up with ideas for an article, attempt to construct an outline for an essay, think about my life goals or just think about life.

Finally, after realizing I was too bored to do any of those things, I chose to write about the problem I had encountered while searching for something to think about. I decided that a poem was the best way to capture the ideas in my mind and share them. The end result was the following poem.

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.

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.
