You weren't who I thought you were.

Dear Toxic Ex-Best Friend, You Best Believe I'm Done Blaming Myself

I have no idea what to say to you so, I just decided to put it in a letter. There are just things that never really added up over the past few months. I still find things to blame myself for, but I know that it wasn't me. It was just us being two different people that never really viewed things the same.

At first, everything seemed to be fine. We would got along great, laugh all the time and made if friends. It was super fun. We made summer ours and did everything we could to have the best time. You were there for me and i was there for you. Along with our friend group. We were inseparable. It felt like we were going to be best friends forever.

But we were both wrong. What I didn't know was that you weren't good for me. We would get into fights and I would blame myself for every time we fought. I didn't want to lose a friend that meant so much to me. I also hated that I would get you upset, because I felt it was my fault. Now that I see it with fresh eyes, it wasn't anything I did, it was more so that you would get upset over the little things.

It was anytime i corrected you, anytime I said something about anyone we both know, or just anytime I stated a fact. It was always something I said and nothing anyone else in the group said. Little did I know that was a red flag big time. Especially at a time where I was trying to put myself first, be healthy for myself, and keep a positive mind on life. You were more negative on the life aspect. That was and is not something that I needed.

I am sorry for how things turned out and I wish you the best of luck with everything you do. I wish that you meet the boy of your dreams, I wish you get that job you have always wanted and I wish you learn what it means to be a genuine and kind hearted friend. Nothing but the best in life for you. I am thankful you were my friend when I needed you, but i'm also thankful you decided to leave when it was time.

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.

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.
