Top 10 Reasons Why I Am A Real Life Potato
yarram secondary college poetry

What is a potato? To my understanding, it is a root vegetable with a brown outer skin. They’re pretty ugly and are pretty boring if I do say so myself. However, I have come to realize that maybe I’m not so different from these odd vegetables. I’m actually very similar to them. Here are ten reasons why I embody potatoes

1. I got eyes.

I have eyes and if you are the apple of my eye long enough, I’ll even sprout the long tubercle thingys to latch on to you forever.

2. I am irregularly shaped.

Potatoes can be all shapes and sizes. Every one of them is not the same. Some are top heavy while others are bottom heavy. It goes to show you that people come in their own shapes and sizes too.

3. I have an “ugly” outer covering.

I truly believe I look like a monster, especially waking up in the morning with last night’s make up smeared all over my face.

4. I have a pretty inside.

After peeling off the skin, potatoes are actually pretty radiant. They’re shiny and have a nice colored gold tint to them. What really matters is in the inside because under the skin, potatoes are awesome. We normally eat them with their skin off and they taste amazing because what they’re made of. Again, it goes to show you, that who you are is more important than what you look like. And I’m a pretty awesome person, I mean potato, if I do say so myself.

5. I am diverse.

Do you see all the ways we can eat potatoes? We can eat them baked, mashed, fried, etc. The options are endless. Just like me, I can become anything I want to be too. The way I dress varies and the people I get along with come from all over.

6. I am lazy.

Literally, I am the true definition of couch potato. I love being lazy. Most of the time, I rather stay in and go out. It takes a lot for me to get the motivation to do anything.

7. Opposed to being lazy, I do have the energy within me.

You just have to find the energy. Potatoes are carbs right? They have quick energy to supply your body. Once you find that energy, the flame dies pretty quick too. One minute I’ll be bouncing of the walls, the next minute, it’s couch potato 2.0.

8. I don’t get mad often.

You’ll rarely see me mad because I’m pretty chill most the time. However, I can get into my moods and I can become a steaming hot potato in seconds. One wrong move and it is game over for you because no one wants to deals with me when I’m “too hot to handle.”

9. I thrive in the dark.

I am not a morning person at all. I need 10 cups of coffee before I am any where useful. My true being comes alive during the night. It is where I am more active. Potatoes grow underground which means they thrive in the dark too. See, we are one in the same.

10. Lastly, I’m my mama’s treasure.

I’m my mom’s baby and she loves me no matter what. I mean what can I say? She raised me in the womb for nine months and has nurtured me ever since. If anything ever happened to me, she’d be devastated. Just like a farmer nurturing their potatoes.

These ten reasons have me convinced that I am a true life potato.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
