A Tribute To The Brave

This great nation is made possible by the grace of God and those who risk their lives to protect it.

A Tribute To The Brave

This is a tribute to the brave, and by brave I mean our servicemen and women. America is the greatest country in the world. One that offers life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I am blessed beyond belief to have the privilege of being born, raised, and breed an American. No matter what your political views are for this upcoming presidential election, being thankful to those who protect our freedom is one thing that we should all be united on. The brave men and women who fight for our country are the ones who protect our freedom of speech to even have those powerful opinions about our government. For all these things, we must thank the men and women who make them possible.

This land is home to millions of people who who enjoy freedom and the opportunity to seek the American dream. People come from all over the world to live in this great country for a shot at it. There are so many things that make this country great, the list can go on and on. It is easy to be distracted with all of its luxuries and freedom, that is why it easy to forget how we are capable to have all the opportunities that we do.

Memorial Day is a reminder of something that does not take place enough and possibly may never be. It is a day to reflect, honor, praise, and say thanks to all the soldiers who are fighting, have fought and passed away to protect the freedom of the United States.

For some families, everyday is Memorial Day and a reminder of their loved one that risked their life for the United State and to protect our freedom.

And for others, it is a special day that forces us to stop what we are doing and to think about and honor those who have served in the military to protect us.

We are the land of the free, because of the brave. This great nation is made possible by the grace of God and those who risk their lives to protect it.

Thank you to those serving, who have served, and gave their life for this great country to protect our freedom.

God Bless the Brave.

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.

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.
