To My Roommate

Oh, the times we've had.

To My Roommate

It seems like just yesterday we were moving in. Remember when we had so much stuff we could barely even move? Well after all of that hard work we put in, we are getting ready to pack it back up.

Time has gone by in the blink of an eye. As the semester is quickly coming to a close, I find myself reminiscing on all the times that we have had. It wasn’t always good times, but I wouldn’t trade a second for anything. There is so much that I will miss about you and I want you to know. Here’s to you, roomie.

1. Bedtime Talks – Ah, this is what I will miss the most. Those nights when we just couldn’t seem to sleep so we would stay up talking and laughing about everything. I got to know the real you and I loved it.

2. Jam sessions – These come in a close second. From our mutual love of Sia to wishing that we could dance like Beyonce, we could jam out any time of the day or night. Our neighbors probably didn’t care for our off-tune singing but we enjoyed ourselves anyways.

3. Tuesday’s – Our classes were done early which meant we got to spend almost the whole day just hanging out. Most days all we did was lay around, snack, and watch Netflix but I always looked forward to it.

4. People Watching – With two huge widows looking out to the center of campus, the entertainment was endless. Hooting and hollering at bystanders is our specialty.

5. Venting sessions – Okay, this one is kind of basic but nonetheless is true. I wouldn’t have wanted to come back to the room and cried to anyone else on my bad days. Plus, no matter what the topic we could always end it with a laugh.

6. Nights Out – Nights with you have honestly been some of my favorite memories of college so far. If we go out, I know that I can count on some pretty hilarious stories come the next day.

7. Campus run-ins – Seeing you on campus and hearing you yell “Roomie!” never failed to make my day.

I never thought that I would be lucky enough to have a roommate who turns out to be my best friend. You have made my college experience so much brighter and I am so thankful. When I can't sleep I will be calling you. When I want to rock out I will be calling you. When I cry I will be calling you. When I am looking for fun I will be calling you.

Memories we will carry together, you and me. Roomies we will always be. I love you to the moon and back.

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.
