You Weren't Worth The Hype

It's about your mindset.

You Weren't Worth The Hype
7 Themes

You know that saying, "If you love someone you have to let them go," so that you can better yourself or so they can better themselves? I never really understood that until recently.

When you're in a relationship, especially one that is going at basically 100 miles per hour, it seems like you have forever together. You spend so much time together that you're learning so much. You think you're in love. And then something happens and everything spirals out of control. Hurtful words are spewed. A broken heart consumes you. Of course, you are going to remember all the beautiful moments shared between you two — the constant butterflies you felt when you'd see them and hear their voice. The warmth you felt when you were wrapped in their arms. Staying up late and even falling asleep together. Memories.

But even with those glorious moments, you are constantly reminded of the pain and hurt they caused to your heart and soul. You loved them deeply, and it destroyed you. Seeing their face brings back times but the times aren't good. Everything reminds you of them. You shut down and shut the world out. Near a breakdown, you are still confused.

Me? I was here. I let what they did effect my view on love. I had to realize that, that was just one person. One. Out of millions. Eliminating almost everything, and I mean everything, even if it had a scent of them. When that burden is on you, it creates stress. It brings out the worst in you, and your bad character begins to show. The less you think, the better.

You eventually find yourself done with the process. You learn what to take and what not to take from it. The same way you fell in love with that person, you have to learn how to fall out of love. My mind is literally at ease now. I let the butterflies, that once existed, escape.

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.
