When You Let A Love Go

Believing in magic is like believing in love.

When You Let A Love Go

Love comes in our lives in ways we least expect it.

Rarely when we seek it out, look for it around the corner of a party or a crowded bar, does it appear.

Just a magic trick, it has a way of disappearing like the speed of light and unexpectedly.

You find your thoughts trailing off thinking about love when you walk down the street, hearing a laugh ring in your ears or seeing a lazy, sleepy smile look up at you in your memories. Memories fade, but they also return when you think you've lost them forever. They come back to you, in a song on the radio, or with a smell that is so recognizable, it takes you to a time or place again.

But just like magic, a love can disappear then reappear, without warning.

But the magic never explains what happens when you let the love go? Where does the love go? Does it eventually disappear forever, never coming back, going into the endless black hole lost forever? Or perhaps the little lights of love continue to go off randomly, like lightning bugs on a summer night.

Sometimes love comes in a wave that is so big, it swallows you whole. The current pulls you under and takes your last breath away. While other times, it comes like tiny ripples, easing its way in. Every so often we want or wish for a love so intense that the biggest wave in the ocean could overthrow it. Is that always safe though? Sometimes it's easiest to go with the current than against it.

If love is similar to magic, you know, they say, magicians never share their secrets. Is it a secret, to keep the magic of the love in your pocket and save it for days you need a little bit that day? Or do you tell yourself the magic was a figment of your imagination? It was it all just tricks, and who knows what's real and what isn't, but in the end, no matter what we tell ourselves, we all want to believe in magic.

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.
