To Them Part One

A Poem For Us

To Them Part One

I think the worst part is we

Can't even see

How truly beautiful we all are.

All we see

Is the ugly

All we see

Is the pain

All we see

Is the guilt.

It gets in the way of everything we really are.

Is that why

We treat the others so different sometimes?

We pick out their flaws

We pick out what's ugly,

Hanging it on a thread

Or framing it in their face

As a picture,

But all the while can't

Reverse the see through glass

And see that it is us

Standing in the mirror.

Everything we really are

We can let show,

All of the real true love

That hides underneath our debris

We can bring forth.

All we have to do is let go,

Let go of the pain

Let go of

Everything that we've been through,

Everything that has molded us into

Becoming the people we are.

We thought it made us stronger

But in reality, it made us weaker,

And caused us to grow less to love.

How do we expect to show our children

What love really is

If we are living a false form of it.

Maybe that is why they, we, them

Accept love from wherever

It is given.

It's time to get past our suffering.


Forgive what has harmed you

Forgive what has broken you.

We can end the pattern

We can make ourselves over

And birth a new love.

Let's look to God

Together, with Him

We can become something new.

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.
