To My Sister Who Didn't Get To Finish 8th Grade

I am so sorry little sis.

To My Sister Who Didn't Get To Finish 8th Grade

I'm sure we all can go through our memories all the way to 8th grade. I remember mine so vividly because it was my first year attending public school. I had been in Christian school since I was just two because my mom worked there. Public school is very different as you can imagine. I met new friends and played new sports and went through many different experiences. I remember my first day because thats the day I met some of my greatest friends. I was so excited to go on the infamous 8th grade trip to Disney. I was excited for the 8th grade dance and even the 8th grade picnic in the park. Most importantly I was excited for the day of 8th grade graduation and to move on to high school.

I am so sorry little sis that you never got to do those things. We were getting ready for the 8th grade trip as this whole virus came about. It was cancelled. Good for us that we have awesome parents and they decided we would go anyways. You had just bought a dress for the 8th grade dance. You and your friends had decided to ask your parents to rent a limo to show up in style, I am sorry that didn't get to happen. You weren't even close to the 8th grade picnic yet but it would have been a great time for you and your friends. I am sorry that didn't get to happen.

I am also so very sorry that some of the people you held so dear to yourself in middle school will never be so close again. Like me you will go to a high school where not many of the people you were around in middle school will go. It will be sad at first but you will adjust. You will make new friends I have no doubt. Make sure to hold those old memories close to your heart though because those are the days. I hope you are thankful for what you did get to experience in middle school and are excited for what is to come in your future.

I hope you know you can always come to me with any questions or concerns you have about high school. I have been through what you are about to experience. I would love to help you with every problem you have and I will support you in any way.

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.

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.
