You Don't Want Me, So Don't Pretend To: A Poem

It's okay to speak your soul, but make sure you mean it.

You Don't Want Me, So Don't Pretend To: A Poem

You look towards me with those rose colored glasses, all blinded and filled with mesmerization

Hoping, just hoping , that I am the one to catch you when you fall, to be there when you laugh

Thinking that I am your future, your everything.

But don't be mistaken, I'm probably not the one.

You'll probably change your mind in a few seconds, in a few weeks, a few months

When you take off those glasses, and see the dark corners in my soul, my gaze, and my heart.

Seeing the tiny shatters of porcelain glass, witnessing the bloody smears against my fingerprints

Caressing my own spirit, my own ability to love.

So be sure of me, when you love. Be sure that you'll be there for me when I cry,

Be sure that you'll be there with that warm embrace

Be sure that even after all those nights filled with remorse and praying "When this will all end,"

That you'll still be there next to me, looking at me with love and admiration.

Don't pretend to want me, when you don't know what you want.

Don't pretend to love me, because you just want someone to caress your soul.

Chances are, I can't make your life better, but I can make your life more fruitful.

Don't pretend to stay, when you're just going to leave.

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.
