Dear Friends...

I owe it all to you

Dear Friends...
Kelsey Hall

Throughout my college years, I have had some pretty rad times and have walked away with so many great stories and experiences. My four years at Texas Woman’s University have been the best of my life and I know I owe all the thanks to my sisters in AOII. AOII has made my college years so memorable and I am forever grateful for that, but there are a few people that I need to call out.

Dear Sahmeen,

Jeez, I miss you so much it hurts. You have such a beautiful soul, personality, and heart, your face isn’t too bad either. You taught me so much about life and myself and I’ve never thanked you for that, so I’m going to do it now all over the Internet. I thought that I was the most sarcastic person I knew, but all of that changed when I met you, I don’t hold a candle to you, girlfriend! I admire that you aren’t afraid to put people in their place and always speak your mind; I wish I could be more like you in that regard. I also never thanked you for always being the person that I could depend on for pretty much everything: an insult, advice, a laugh, and great memories. There is no doubt in my mind that you will grow up to do so many amazing things and help so many people. I love you and I miss you

Ps. you always wanted me to write about you, so you’re welcome.

Dear Sydney,

I couldn’t be happier that you finally came out of your shell last year, I was afraid you would stay in there forever! You are honestly one of the sweetest people that I have ever met, I know that you would do anything for me and that makes me feel so safe. I love that you are always down to party (If you aren’t already in bed) because I know that we are in for a good time if you’re around. You are so beautiful, talented, sweet, and have so much potential. You have so much going for you, all you have to do is get out there and take it! I wish that you could see you the way that we all see you. I know that one day you will have this amazing fashion career, so don’t you dare forget about me and make sure to send me free clothes, because God knows I need all the help I can get. I hate that you live so far away, but I’m not really worried because I know that we will always be there for each other. I love you and I miss you.

Dear Alysen,

Wow, we have had some pretty great times together, haven’t we? We have pretty much-spent every day over the past three years we have known each other and I wouldn’t change that for the world. You are one of my closest friends, and I know that we will be friends until we die. I have never had a friend that was so caring, loving, funny, and so dependable in my entire life. You have seen me at my worst and you have picked me up, dusted me off, and made me a better person. I know that whatever we do, whether it’s going day drinking at Lou’s, going to McAlister’s and pigging out, or just driving around, we always have the best time together. I want you to know how much I appreciate you and all you have done for me. I am forever grateful for our friendship and will hold it in my heart for as long as I live. I know that our friendship is nowhere near over because we have too much left to do together, but I love you and I miss you.

Dear Rachel,

I am so glad that you decided to grace TWU with your presence because, just like a Kelly Clarkson song, my life would suck without you. I mean what can I say? There aren’t really words to describe what your friendship has meant to me. I have never met someone that I clicked with so quickly with until I met you. I know that whenever we are together I won’t stop laughing and everyone around hates us. I love that you are so unapologetically yourself, you do you, girl, because who you are is amazing. I can always count on you to be there for me and I hope you know that I will always be there for you. Your future is so bright, and you have so many amazing things up ahead of you, and I can’t wait to see all that you will accomplish! It’s been really tough not having you here this past couple of months, it’s just really hard spending every day with your best friend, and then have them move so many states away and not see them at all. I miss you more every day, but I am so beyond proud of you! I hope that we have many more nights ahead of us filled with laughter, popcorn, and Justin Bieber dance breaks. I love you and I miss you

These gals have made my life such a joy and I am forever grateful for everything. I will cherish all of these memories that we have made together, but I hope that this is just the beginning and we will make so many more.

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.
