To The Unexpected Love Of My Life

Unexpected love comes at the strangest times, but look what it does to you.

To The Unexpected Love Of My Life

I never pictured love to come so suddenly and early in my life until you showed up. It was strange at first and yes I did chicken out of giving you a chance until I realized I was wrong to give you up. Falling in love all over again is scary to me because I have such high hopes of meeting "the one" and the hope that that special person will treat me with respect as I will them. However, you have shown me that you will respect me and make me believe in myself when I don't.

I may not have known you for long, but you have taught me things about myself that other men have kept hidden from me. I was confident but only enough to push myself socially and academically. You made me comfortable with who I am and the choices I make daily because when things fail, I know I can just pick myself back up again. One of my favorite things is that our support system is great. You don’t tell me not to join organizations or go after the things I want like some people have done, rather you cheer me on like I do for you when you have something major happening!

When you meet someone special, you realize how well you two click together. Finding love is almost like falling in love with yourself. You find the person that shares common interests with you like watching anime, playing sports, or just talking. Sometimes you can just woo someone right off the bat with your natural personality, not the personality you are hiding behind. I never expected you to be so open to me after our first meeting and for you to be so honest about everything. Being honest earns you a special spot in my heart.

I never expected so much compassion out someone until I met you. The way you sympathize and feel other people’s pain. How you know I am upset when I don't even show any signs of distress is amazing. Always giving me a helping hand or asking “what can I do to help” warms my heart, because even though you can’t really help with my personal problems, you still try.

I am not one to be sappy, but when do we ever expect love? Love comes knocking at our door at the strangest times, good or bad. Unexpected love could be anyone, a long lost family member, a friend, or a significant other. Love affects what you do and your overall outlook on life. Sometimes you just have to live by The Beatles lyrics “All you need is love,” because love and support are what makes a person happy.

Some say love never dies and some say it does. When I first heard that, I thought to myself, well yes love does and can die with people but I thoughtabout it and I realized for me that love will never die. Because even if it does, it doesn't go away. Somehow I end up still caring a whole awful lot about everyone and that leads me to believe that love conquers always. Thank you, my unexpected love, for the life you are helping me lead.

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.
