Forever honoring the Queen of Tejano music.

16 Reasons Selena Quintanilla Is Amazing

So we have officially entered the month of March and to me, the 31 days that this month holds every year have always been very significant. One of the most meaningful dates specifically about this month is March 31. I confess that this date will always have some type of substantial weight on my shoulders because it marks the anniversary of Selena Quintanilla's passing. Born and raised in Texas, the Mexican-American was not only a singer, songwriter, actress, fashion designer but a crystal clear inspiration to millions. The Tejano artist left nothing but a massive footprint in the many lives and hearts of those who idolized her.

Although deceased, Selena still continues to breathe life into her music like the iconic legend she was and in my perspective, will continue to always be. In honor of her passing, I'd like to declare that Quintanilla does not deserve to have merely one day of glory and recognition, but an entirely month.

I declare this to be Selena's month. I declare that this year will not only consist of honoring and remembering Selena on March 31, but every single day of this month. I declare the next few weeks to be a constant reminder of all of the wonderful things that made her unlike anyone else on this earth.

Selena radiated so much beauty both within herself and out into world, externally. And I think it's that time of the year again when we recall exactly how much grace, elegance, and appeal the Queen of Tejano music had. Here's to 16 things that made Selena Quintanilla such a beautiful soul.

1. Her vibrant smile.

2. Her tender heart.

3. Her cute Latin dance moves.

4. Her amazing songs that always made you feel happy, in love or generally sparked feelings of bliss.

5. Her humor.

6. The way she would always wear that signature red lipstick (making her even all the more beautiful).

7. The way her passion for music showcased whenever she was performing.

8. Her wonderful hair.

9. The way she would twirl on stage so gracefully.

10. Her desire to help and inspire others to follow their dreams.

11. Her diverse fashion style.

12. The way she would stop in the middle of a song and genuinely smile at her audience.

13. The way she was always happy.

14. Her gratitude when she always won an award.

15. The way she would never say "no" to signing her fans' autographs.

16. The way she unconditionally loved her family and friends.

Here's to the iconic legend that will always live in our hearts regardless of what day, month, or year it just so happens to be. The Queen: Selena Quintanilla.

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.

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.
