When The Storm Has Passed

Don't be afraid when you're alone.

Sometimes we face a challenge in our lives. Whether it’s losing a loved one, or going through a breakup, there’s always a storm that comes. The storm can be as bad as a hurricane or as small as a rain shower. Sometimes you see it coming from afar, hearing the thunder rolling in, but sometimes you don’t see it at all until it hits you. When the storm has passed, and you are lost, you need to know what to do.

Find Yourself

You are left wondering what to do and even hating yourself. I’m here to say don’t do that. You can be down for 1-3 days, then that’s it. Learn to love yourself, whether it’s working out and getting in shape or buying a few new clothes that you look great in. Another thing you could do is just learn to accept who you are and grow from it. Finally, when we are lost we try hard to find someone else, when in reality we need to find ourselves. We need to discover who we truly are instead of what others want us to be.


Sometimes the only person to turn to in a hard time is God. Praying is important when you are confused, lost, or just need someone to talk to. Getting closer to God helps you to see a whole new side and that He has a plan for us.It makes you realize that if He wants it to be it shall be. It also helps you to find yourself and go on the right path to a happy life and moving on.

Go Out

When you’re down there is nothing better than going out and hanging with your friends. Having a night out, where you go out to eat, get all dressed up, and maybe even a little shopping can make you realize how amazing your friends are. They will always be there for you when you are lost, and when you need a shoulder to cry on. Even if you don’t want to go out, have an old fashioned movie day in your pj’s with some of your friends.

Pick Up A New Hobby

Distraction is one of the best things when you’re down or just went through something and you feel lost. Trying new hobbies is a great way to meet new friends and discover something you never knew you were good at.Some things you can try, are coloring, making wreaths, making signs, painting, or even trying a new sport. There are so many new activities you can try.

Just remember that when the storm has passed and you feel lost, there is something to help you. There are also always someone there for you even when you think there aren’t. Pray, find hobbies, go out with friends, and learn to love yourself because you are your own kind of beautiful.

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.
