15 Reasons I Love Photography

15 Reasons I Love Photography
Holly Page

1. I love the way I feel whenever I finally capture the photo that I had imagined in my head.

2. I get to capture moments of life that I may never experience again, such as seeing a certain band perform live or watching an extremely beautiful sunset.

3. I am more appreciative and aware of what my God has set before me in creation.

4. I love taking pictures of people, the smiles that occur whenever I show them their photos just makes my heart swell.

5. Being behind the lens means I don't have to be in front of it. I hate having my picture taken!

6. Photos can tell stories that words cant. Often, people can draw together their own stories through photos and no one can tell them they're wrong because it's all open for interpretation.

7. I love learning new tricks so that I can capture the best image possible.

8. I like that photos can evoke emotion just as much as a good piece of literature can.

9. Photography is like therapy for me.

10. You can capture the moments of life in 1/100th of a second, and that just kinda' reminds me that even the smallest moments are beautiful.

11. You can take "stalker pics" of people you find attractive, but it's 100% ok because you're a "photographer."

12. Other photographers will flock to you when they see you with your camera in hand, which is kinda' neat because I sometimes meet people I wouldn't have met otherwise.

13. When taking a picture, I'm in control of how it turns out, and that's so satisfying.

14. Whenever you fail, you can always try again. It's a learning process.

15. It's one of the main ways that I am able to express my introverted self, other than writing.

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.

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
