To The Kids I Nanny This Summer

I don't know what my life would be like without you girls

To The Kids I Nanny This Summer
McKenzie Brouk

Being a nanny comes with its high points and its low points, but being an important part of a child's life is so rewarding. There are days where I do not want to go to "work", but then I get there and the kids I nanny somehow know how to completely turn my day around.

Dear kiddos,

The school year with you two was fun, but summer will be even better. I have never met two little girls in my life who make me smile, and enjoy my job as much as you girls have. Although there are times where we get on each other toes, crying fits, and back-talk there are so many times where there is just complete laughter, and those are the moments that makes being a nanny truly special. Whenever we play Zingo I seriously get a workout with just how much we laugh, and I would not trade that for the world. Thank you for teaching how to stay calm, and be patient. There are times where I feel my head might explode from the whining, or when you refuse to take a bath or eat, but eventually it happens (sometimes it involves a sucker at the end).

I feel like I have known both of you for much longer than a year, but I guess that is what happens when you spend 4 days a week with someone! I cant believe we will be entering summer schedule which means more time together, probably a few more meltdowns, maybe not liking me at times, but absolutely ten times more fun. I promise to make this summer one to remember with movies, swimming, ice cream dates, going on adventures, and being completely exhausted by the end of the day.

Thank you for being such a huge part of my life, and let's enjoy these last two months have together. Most importantly let's start planning the summer craziness!

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.
