I knew ever since I was a little girl, that I wanted to go to college. I did not know where, I just knew that that is what I wanted to do. I never really had a "dream college". All I wanted in a college was for it to be beautiful, welcoming, and for it to feel like home when I first step on the campus.

Junior year of high school came around and I was so dead set on going to the University of Tampa in Florida. I wanted to be a marine biologist. From pictures I saw, the campus was gorgeous. I wanted to go there. But after getting more involved in FFA and inspiration from my high school agriculture teacher, I went down different path. I decided to be an agriculture teacher like him. So that definitely took University of Tampa out of the question.

I knew OSU was a great agriculture college. So I was "Sure, what the heck, I'll apply and see if I can get in." I applied late October of my senior year in high school. I applied without even knowing what the campus even looked like. I had no idea if I would love it or hate it. I just went with my gut and went with it. A week after I applied, I went and toured. Driving up there with my mom and my brother's girlfriend at the time, I was really nervous. I really wanted to like this college because it was the only one I applied to and the only one I would apply to. As soon as we parked and I stepped foot on OSU's campus in Stillwater, Oklahoma, I instantly felt at peace. I fell in love with the campus in just the first few seconds of being there. I was in absolute awe of it all. I felt like I could call this place home. Everyone I met was so nice and helpful when we got turned around and lost.

I know it sounds cliche or corny. But I really felt and still feel like I belong at Oklahoma State University. I felt at home and it was everything I was looking for in a college. Everyone was so happy. Everyone was so nice. The campus is absolutely gorgeous. A week after I toured, I got my acceptance letter and my life has been forever changed. As I am completing my second year, I am still so glad that I decided to go to OSU. My love for this college grows more and more each day and I am so glad I can call this place my 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.

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.
