This Mind Of Ours

"She is close to the end. She is rising from the deep."

This Mind Of Ours
Tessa Lebo

She has my hair color, she has my sense of humor, she has my blood, but sadly she has my brain.

I see her cry and I know she's in pain. I have been there. It worked for me and I pray it works for her.

I felt the same way when I got the courage to take the pill. Your mind will be fixed, but first you have to go through hell.

Just a few more days and she'll be in the clear. I hope she can make it through, she will as long as I'm here.

She's away at college and I wait by the phone, ready to be there if she needs anything at all.

She has my endurance, she has my drive, she's barely holding on but I will get her to the light.

I promise her every bad day that this too shall pass. Nothing is forever, this worry will not last.

Months go by and nothing but stress. It brings me back to when I was a mess.

I suffered for years and no one knew what to do. I was losing myself, I fought it but it was true.

I wasn't sure if there was an answer but I couldn't live with this mind.

I 'm happy I never gave up. I'm happy I didn't stop trying.

A miracle drug brought me back to life.

I can't thank it enough for opening my eyes.

I didn't want to live anymore and I could have taken it all.

Now staring at my little girl, I can tell she's where I was.

She's bending and she's tired. "I promise I won't let you break."

I swear with all that I have, I will see her pretty teeth.

She is close to the end. She is rising from the deep.

Just up the dose a little more, I can feel there isn't much further.

What can't we do if we have one another?

It worked for me so there is a good chance it will work for you.

I want you to be happy and I want you to be you.

As sad as it is and how long you have suffered, I am happy you have my brain.

I'm so happy you're my daughter.

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.
