To The Best Friend That Turned Casual Friend

You will always be one of the best people I've ever met.

To The Best Friend That Turned Casual Friend
Gossip Girl

We didn't get in a huge fight, we didn't have a falling out, but we just stopped talking as frequently and hanging out less until we reached casual texting or hanging out maybe once every two months. We slowly drifted apart from each other, and now our conversations are filled with awkward silences when we use to have too much to talk about.

I'm going off to college in less than two months, and to be honest I don't really know what is going to happen with our friendship. Of course, more than anything I want my best friend back, but I'm tired of putting energy into someone that isn't there for me like I am for you. This last year in Texas has really showed me who my real best friends are. The people I couldn't imagine my life without, who are constantly there for me on the good days and the bad days. You were once the person I would always text first about a huge accomplishment or something terrible that was going on, but now when I send those texts I might not even get a response or sometimes you don't even know what is going on in my life at the moment.

I'm not angry, yes I'm sad, but in the end I am completely grateful for the endless amount of memories we have created. Maybe someday we will come back to the best friends we once use to be, but time will tell. I can only imagine me going to college will only drift us apart more, but life goes on and I can't continue to put out energy on people who claim to be my "best friend".

Even though we aren't as close as we use to be know that I still love you, and that no one could ever replace you and our memories. You were such a big part of my life, and one of the people who motivated me to follow my dreams and for that I am forever grateful. Thank you for the love, and crazy memories...hopefully we can learn to become close again.

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.
