To My Rock, Happy Father's Day
Sydney Morris

Dear dad,

Today is your day. Today is the day where we get to thank you and love on you for all that you have given us in this world. On this day, every daughter or son will tell their dad that "they're the best dad in the entire world". But today, I'm here to tell you how you've been the perfect dad for me and how truly blessed I really am.

Thank you for loving me the way that you have. You've never once let me leave an argument without us telling each other "I love you". Your every action is with the best interest of my sister and I at heart. You've created a relationship with me where I feel comfortable telling you anything and everything, and because of that we are so close. By treating me this way since day one, your loving and selfless personality has trickled into my blood.

Thank you for being my safe place. Thank you for never letting me feel scared, when in your presence. Because of your trusting love for me, I know that you will always be there to protect me.

Thank you for always supporting me. You've always told me that I am capable of anything I set my mind to. It may have taken me 20 years to grasp this, but you have somehow engraved enough confidence in me that I now live by this motto; and, I'm shootin' for the stars, pops.

Thank you for showing me exactly what I want in a husband. Every boy that enters my life, I have the perfect gentlemen to compare him to - and that's you. You have showed me to look for the right things in people and to make sure our morals and values align. So at the end of the day, if he isn't going to be the father that you have been to me, he's gotta' hit the road, Jack.

So dad, thank you. Thank you for being the perfect father for me. Thank you for loving me, supporting me, and molding me. I couldn't be more blessed to be your "mini-me".

I love you to the moon and back, dad.

Forever and ever, Your 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.
