You’re Here Now, November

I have the pictures on my wall, you know

the ones from that day on the beach

the sun had left tiny brown kisses on my skin

as if like they belonged there


there’s even that one where the salt water is dancing around my ankles,

begging me to stay within it’s reach

I think that’s my favorite


I just heard you walk in a little while ago

I felt you’re cool fingertips on the back of my neck, just five minutes ago

I can tell because my skin is covered in goosebumps


I know you’re finally here now, November


oh, how i’ll miss cold lemonade in the summer

but I think I love dark brewed coffee with hazelnut cream a little more

it goes well with those promises we make to each other around this time every year

the ones that wrap us in and hold us as warmly as a fall fire


“Go,

Dance in the leaves that are falling from the trees, they’ve missed you” you’d whisper


how I want to run outside everytime

that’s how you make me feel

like the end of anything can be a beautiful promise


promise

that we’ll be young

that we’ll love so hard that fall will shed from our eyes

that our colors will be vibrant and our skin tainted

that we’ll need to wrap ourselves up, quickly, in order to contain the heat of our passion

isn't that what you’re writing with your breath on my lips, right now?


I can feel you, inches from me

and I know you’re only temporary

you’ve barely just laid on my bed, but you’re the most beautiful promise of an end


but for now i’ll make you coffee and get lost in your falling eyes

I know one thing is for certain


you’re here for now

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.

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.
