What I Wish You Knew

You have changed my life for the better, and I am forever grateful.

What I Wish You Knew

Hey, you.

Life has been hectic lately. I'd go as far as to say it's been downright hard. It seems that the world is moving so fast- too fast. You are struggling to find your balance and stay standing up. Don't worry- this will certainly pass.

You see, you are capable of great things. But wait, really think about that sentence.

You are capable of great things.

The world needs the gifts and talents you possess. You have the ability to make real change in the lives of those around you. And, my friend, you do. Every day, you show a selfless side of yourself through your words and actions. You always put others before yourself. You provide care and comfort to those around you. But, who cares for you?

You spent countless hours devoted to making sure others know how important they are. During times of need, you put everything on the back burner to ensure that your loved one will be taken care of. Your work ethic and kindness are both admirable traits. They are a few of the many reasons you are so easy to love. But, you fail to notice why these traits are so valuable.

You are a rare gem. Everyone who has you in their life knows it. They see the incredible person you are and understand how lucky they are to have you in their life. We all wish you could see the worth that you possess.

You are intelligent.

You are radiant.

You are empowering.

You are kind.

You are filled with love.

You give me hope.

You embody the best qualities of people. You are everything I could ever hope for in a friend. Please take the time to be proud of your accomplishments and the great person that you are.

Thank you for changing my life.

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.
