What Life is Like When Your Best Friend Visits You at School

It's Been Waaay Too Long

What Life is Like When Your Best Friend Visits You at School

Saying goodbye to your best friend for the summer as you leave for college is always hard. Although she goes to Providence, which is only a short 40 minutes away from Boston, it's very rare that I get to see her unless we have a break. So, when we get the chance to see each other at school it's always so exciting. She gets to meet and hang out with my roommates, and I get to hang out with hers. There are many exciting things to do when you have your best friend from home come to visit you at school, and we certainly made the most out of the limited time that we had.

One of the most exciting parts of this weekend was being able to go out with both my roommates and my best friend. Along with going out on Friday and Saturday, we were able to go to the game on Saturday and tailgate with a lot of my friends from school. It's always fun to have your friend visit for a football game because we were able to spend the entire day outside and meet a bunch of friends that I have at school. Also, this weekend was especially fun because her friends from Providence also came and I could spend the day with her, my roommates, and her roommates. After the game, I was able to show her around main campus, which was new since last year I lived in Newton on the freshman campus.

Along with Julia coming to visit, my roommate's parents also came for the game, and so we were all able to go out to dinner together. Having any kind of company at school is the perfect excuse to go out into Boston and get something good to eat, which is always better than the dining hall.

One of the best parts of this weekend was the fact that I only have to wait two more weeks until Thanksgiving to see her again. Usually, saying goodbye is really upsetting because I know that we won't be able to see each other again for awhile. Although I love being at school, I'm very excited to be able to see her again in only a few short weeks. And this time, I'll be reunited with all my girl friends from home.

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.
