To The Best Friend I Made Because Her Boyfriend Dumped Her

I owe you a huge "Thank You" for this friendship.

To The Best Friend I Made Because Her Boyfriend Dumped Her

She used to be a stranger, then she became someone I said "Hi" to as we passed each other on campus, then she became my best friend when you ripped her heart to pieces. I have her now and I am not planning on giving her back anytime soon. I was there for her when her world came crashing down, I was the one who spent hours with her so she didn't go home alone and cry herself to sleep, I was the one who replaced you.

I had always wanted to hang out with her and be her friend but I never knew how to go about it. I never wanted to impose on what ya'll had because it looked so perfect in every way. I had my friends and she had hers. But our paths were always crossing. We finally made plans and the time was spent talking about our relationships and how good everything seemed. She bragged on you for applying to Grad School, she talked about how proud she was of you. I was starting to become jealous of this relationship to be honest. Mine is beyond perfect but she was so perfect and so good to you, how could you.

It wasn't until that day. The day that you made her world fall right on top of her. I thought this was my chance, I had been in her shoes and I was the one who was going to be there for her. That is exactly what I did, I spent hours texting her back and forth, forced her to go eat with me since she hadn't eaten since that day, laid in her bed with her as we both worked on homework for different classes. I just didn't want her to be alone. The longer the days went on, the more we talked, the more we hung out, the more perfect this friendship was becoming.

You have so idea what you are missing out on. In the short amount of weeks of our friendship she has changed my life and made me a better person. I have helped her put memories in the back of her head of you and instead focus on the life and path that God has laid out for her. She is an inspiration and a dang good cook. You are missing out, because all of the things you used to do together I am now getting to do them.

I'm sure you are going to wonder about her and think about what she is doing, but don't worry I am keeping her safe and making sure she is doing just fine. Without your mistake I think about would this friendship be a thing? Would I be so happy with my life because I now have someone to help me along the way? Probably not, so here's to you, new friendships and one really dumb mistake.

I will constantly be thanking you from this day forward for this new friendship that was created all over you not wanting to be with such a perfect person.

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.
