A Wedding Day

A little discovered girl.

A Wedding Day
The Knot

White Dress

A dress

A wedding

A white wedding

A white dress is something that the woman cannot wear

It is stained with blood

Blood of innocence lost

Taken rather

She is unable to stare into the eyes of her groom to be without the want to unearth

Unearth the obscure masculinity of a man

A man whose everyday lust snatched away the soul

The soul of a young girl looking to him for protection

Protection from the very seed that he planted within her being

Being the very monster than she once searched for under her bed

There he was in her bed

On top of her

This woman stands wanting to wear a white dress

A dress that she cannot wear because it's drenched in water

Water from tears unseen unmasked

Buried deep within her soul

Never brought out by emotion

Emotion was a figment of her imagination

Imagination was a far fantasy

Fantasy was everyday reality

Reality was nothing much

Just. LIke. Her. Tears.

There stood a woman with a little girl inside

A little girl gone unseen unheard and unsolved

You cannot tell me that the little girl isn't still there

There wanting to be part of something

Something that does not include a mother's voice "You lying little whore!"

Something that does not include her father's lust "You be quiet and I'll take it easy. Besides no one would believe you."

Something that didn't have to lead to "I believe you big sister. I saw daddy myself but mommy just doesn't understand."

You cannot tell me that the little girl isn't there

Wanting to be seen

You cannot tell me that the little girl isn't there

Needing to be heard

You will not tell me that the little girl isn't that woman

A dress

A wedding

A white wedding

A white dress

She wore it that day

Bloody and wet

She wasn't the woman

She was the little girl

The little girl finally was seen heard and discovered

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.
