To My High School Teachers

Thank you for making my four years what they were.

To My High School Teachers's%20desk&position=7

Dear High School Teachers,

I want to thank you for everything you've done for me these past four years. Without you, I truly do not know what I would've done. You have been my rock, even if you didn't realize it.

Thank you for having faith in me, even when I didn't. Thank you for pushing me to always do my best, when all I wanted to do was give up.

Thank you for knowing when I was in a bad mood, and thank you for not pushing me to my limits. Thank you for allowing me to confide in you when I needed it, but also, never pushing too hard on touchy subjects.

Thank you for allowing me to have a voice and feel like I was being heard. Thank you for making my opinion feel valid and always letting me know that at least someone was listening.

Thank you for helping me discover what I was best at, and what I am passionate about. Thank you for helping me figure out what the heck I wanted to do with my life when I had absolutely no clue what I wanted to do. You helped me decide on something so perfect for myself. You truly knew me and saw what my future could be better than I could myself.

Thank you for pushing me to work just ask hard, even when the senioritis set in even worse after Christmas break. You are what helped me complete these past four years to the best of my abilities.

Thank you for the crazy classroom memories. Thank you for the class trips and organization conferences that helped shape me as a person. Thank you for pushing me throughout high school to even be able to attend those trips and conferences. They were no doubt the best part of my high school experience, and I owe that all to you. You drove my passion for the organizations.

You were my support system these past four years. Each and every one of you. You were there to show up early during school to help, and always willing to stay after if needed. You worked so hard to make sure we understood everything but enjoyed ourselves while doing it.

Thank you for making high school what it was. Thank you for being nosey and getting me to talk about things that were bothering me. Thank you for being a friend, a teacher, and a role model all in one.

I never thanked you enough for everything you did for me over these past four years, but looking back on it now, you truly did make my four years better than I ever realized. So, thank you.

I hope we keep in touch.

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.
