I Love You

Thank you for being you.

I Love You

There’s something about hearing the words, “I love you” that makes your head spin in a good way. Especially when it comes from the right person. For me, it is the currently the reason why I keep going.

I heard it from the person who maybe I thought I wouldn’t hear it for a long time if ever. I was instantly reassured of how someone cared about me even in my worst moment.

I remember it clearly. I was playing my ukulele and I was frustrated with life. Frustrated is an understatement but you get my point. I posted some silly status on my Facebook about not needing a boyfriend when I have my instrument. Someone (whose identity is protected) commented on it and told me how I needed a boyfriend to get married. Funny joke, right?

I laughed and smiled because it was something he would say. I sat and pondered like I always do and decided hey why not text him about it. Ha best decision I have made in awhile. I asked him if he thought he was funny. I was nervous for some reason because in reality I was waiting for some smart reply but instead I got a nice confession. He told me that he kind of thought he was funny and he was wondering if people knew that he loved me. I smiled and giggled like I was five years old for a good ten minutes actually for most of the night.

I had been talking to this guy for a couple of months and it was going in the right decision. I like him a lot which hopefully he knows before he reads this but it’s cool. I really enjoyed at the fact that he opened up to me and told me that he loved me.

It came at a time where I was struggling to feel love from anyone. No, I didn’t tell him I loved him back and yes that probably hurt him just a little bit.

I want to love him though and I hope he knows that. I have a great feeling that someday I will. It’s the kind of crush where you find yourself smiling like an idiot every time they text you and you hang on to every word they say. I am very much hanging on the fact that he told me he loved me. Especially how I haven’t been feeling like it. Even though in reality, it’s not really a crush, it is hopefully going to turn into a relationship. That is my hope at least.

It’s a motivation for me to keep going. Even when I have my worst days, I know that there is someone who loves and cares about me. It’s beautiful and wonderful.

I don’t want people to think that I’m alive and breathing because a guy told me he loves me. No. I realized that being told that you are loved by someone special to you can change your entire perspective on things.

For me, it helped me keep fighting this awful battle with my mental health that I someday hope to have better control of.

I am actually super grateful for this guy in my life whether he knows it or not. He’s a pretty special guy and I think I am going to keep him around for awhile.

The lesson is never hide your true feelings for someone because you never know how much of an impact it can make on them. It could totally change their day or week or whatever.

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.
