The Thank You My Mom Deserves, From Your Daughter In College
Jamie Lustig

Dear Mom,

I will never be able to properly express how thankful I am for you.

I am so grateful that with technology these days, I can click a button and talk to you from any distance. I know that you are a busy person, so thank you for always being there for me. Thank you for loving me when I call you 10 times a day and not being mad if a week goes by and I forget. I know that I don't say it enough, but you are so, so appreciated. I would not have gotten through college (so far) without your unconditional support.

Thank you for being there in the middle of the night when I am having a meltdown.

I know that no matter what time it is, if I need you, you will pick up my call. Thank you for listening to my boy problems and reminding me of my worth. Even when you are tired of hearing me talk about the same drama over and over again, thanks for letting me cry to you and rant to you anyway. And thank you for listening to me stress about school and not pressuring me to figure out my future, no matter how many times I change my major.

Thank you for helping me through all the challenges I have faced during college.

Thank you for reading over the various papers and presentations I've had to do over the past few years. Thank you for diagnosing my illnesses over the phone when I refuse to go to the doctor and telling me what medicine to take. And thank you for answering questions that I can easily Google like how to do laundry or how long chicken stays good in the refrigerator.

And last but not least, thank you for always remembering.

With three kids and a crazy schedule to balance, thank you for never forgetting the things that are important to me. Thank you for being the only Valentine I can count on and for making me feel loved on every birthday. I appreciate every cookie cake and balloon you send me. Your effort doesn't go unnoticed.

Thank you for being the best, mom. I love you so much.


Your Daughter

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.
