To My Long Distance Soul Sister

Thank you for everything you do from a million miles away.

To My Long Distance Soul Sister

The day you left I cried my head off like I'd been shot in the foot. I tried to be strong for the "family" we have, but I broke down like a little baby. I miss having you around every day.

Our friendship isn't the average one. We go days, weeks and months without seeing each other and yet it's as if nothings changed.

For starters, we're total opposites. The only things we have in common cause cancer and shoot people. But hey, what's better than having a country girl for a best friend? Nothing. Not a thing. You and I vibe together like peanut butter and chocolate. We're a little weird when you first see us, but nothing beats us together.

There is nobody I'd rather get mud under my nails for. And there is nobody I'd rather be stuck in the middle of the countryside with. Literally, you're my first choice to be stuck with in a snake infested, bug covered, dark, spooky cornfield.

We've only been friends since December 2014, but I feel like I've known you for literally ever. Because there are times when I get dé jà vu and think "that must have been her as a kid." It's usually when I read a story about a kid accidentally shooting someone or see a kid punch someone. But hey, we all have our quirks.

I seriously wouldn't have made it through my freshman year of college without you. Literally, nobody ever provided me with such comfort and such illegal stories. You're the Thelma to my Louise. You're going to be the reason I get arrested in the future. And I know when that day comes, and we're sitting in that little 4x6 cell, we're going to look at each other and wonder who's dumb idea got us in there.

It'll probably be mine. I usually don't think my plans through, which is why I'm so glad I have you to say "No, we're not going to stab anyone" or my personal favorite "stab him, I'll bail you out of jail!"

I miss having you by my side because, like, what's better than drinking a cold beer out of a tumbler on the beach with your best friend? Nothing. Except, it was usually cold when we went outside.

I miss being able to make stupid memories with you, like when you got your wisdom teeth out or when I first played hide and seek in McNulty with you. It's hard having a soul sister that's 500 miles away. Every day I wake up to snaps of you and that Goddamn feral cat on a golf cart and it makes me sad that I'm not there laughing at your allergies acting up with your new cat friend.

Thank you for everything you did for me while you were here, and even everything you do from a million miles away. Thank you for swiping me some coffee or letting me sleep off a hangover in your bed. Thanks for being my safe place and my person to cry to when the world tumbled down on me. And thank you for letting me be the one to hold your hand through the hard times. I will literally never meet another soul like you because you are truly one in a billion. Honestly, I'd be scared if there was two of you. I can barely handle one!

I swear I will be visiting soon, then our new lives can merge and we can shoot some beer cans and get dirt under fresh manicures. I can't wait to tell you "Dude you look rough" in the morning. I can't wait to finally see you. The countdown begins now, see you soon.

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.
