19 Things I Have Learned In 19 Years

I am nineteen so that means I have been on this earth for almost two decades. That is a long time. I am going to list 19 things I have learned so far, the hard way or the easy way.

Don' t let anyone tell you what you cannot do. 

Go after what you want, no matter what 

Enjoy being young because you grow up fast 

Don't forget the people that raised you.  Always appreciate them 

Be grateful for what you have because some people have nothing 

Do not settle for anything 

Take any opportunity that comes along because you may not get another one

Never forget that you are beautiful inside and out 

Fake friends are not worth your time 

Everyone makes mistakes 

No one, and I mean no one, is perfect 

Live every day to the fullest 

Everyone has their flaws - it's better to accept those and live with them 

Depression is real. If you feel it reach out to someone. If you know someone with it, reach out to them. 

Make every day count 

Work hard so you can play later 

Don't ever be someone else - always BE YOU 

Always be kind to everyone - You never know who they will end up being in your life. 

Lastly, always be true to your beliefs. This will help you in the end.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

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

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.
