You Will Always Be a Part of My Heart

I fell in love with you so fast, and I lost you so quick.

You Will Always Be a Part of My Heart
Anxiety Butterflies

Life always tends to throw me a curve ball with situations I don't expect to happen.

For instance, I didn't expect to be pregnant.

On Memorial Day I confided in my boyfriend and told him I thought I was pregnant. I took two pregnancy tests that night, both reading positive. Most couples would be shocked and not be ready to step up on this new take on life; however, we both laughed and I cried because we were happy. We knew we could handle the change. We both had well paying jobs and wanted to settle down. We started making plans.

A week later things took a turn. I felt different, in a sense something was wrong. I was cramping quite a bit, but I heard it was normal at four weeks to have that problem. I went on with my days: work, eat, sleep, repeat. Every day the pain would get worse; the cramps would be like huge waves in my stomach, coming and going. The night of June 12th, just two weeks after my boyfriend and I found out we were going to have a child, the pain was almost to the point where I couldn't sleep. I woke up the next morning and I knew I had to go the hospital, the cramps had me doubled over on the floor.

At 7:30am my boyfriend rushed me to the women's hospital. I saw a different nurse every half hour, doing countless tests. They offered me pain medicine, and for an hour I felt the best I had felt in over a week. After radiology looked over the pictures from the ultrasound, the doctor came to my room. I knew something was wrong by his expression on his face. He said I was having an ectopic pregnancy, where the baby was developing in one of my tubes. There was no solution as to how we could save the baby. He told me I needed to be ready for surgery within the next ten minutes.

I was trying to ask through my sobbing and tears if I could call my boyfriend to come to my room. I had enough time for him to see me. As he walked in, the look on his face I will never forget; he was devastated and quiet as they prepped me for surgery. They rushed me into the operating room, every minute they wasted was one step closer to a ruptured tube.

I woke up two hours later, with little energy and with no recollection of what really happened. I felt empty. The doctor informed me that they had to remove one of the tubes from being so damaged, but that wasn't the reason I felt lonely. My child that was growing inside of me was no longer there.

Now I'm on bed rest for a week, and I can't think of anything else to do rather than imagining what it would've been like if my child was healthy. I still have my hospital bracelet on; I'm afraid if I take it off, it'll just erase the fact that I once had a baby inside of me. I'm still in denial, which explains why I haven't cried since I was released from the hospital, but I know those days are still ahead.

To my baby: you will always be a part of my heart.

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.
