Relationships can be so scary. Before you dive right into one, you need to have a clear and happy mind. These tips will help you find a happy and health relationship.

Self Love

Before you love anyone else, you must love yourself first. Once you accept yourself for who you are, it helps you look for someone who is as loving as you. Loving yourself makes you feel less stressed and anxious too! We all have rough days and toxic past relationships, but the love you give yourself will help you move past that. The past is in the past, it is not your future. When you love yourself, you don't need another person's approval or consent on the way you feel about yourself. Self love is your key to a positive relationship. Just being good to yourself will help boost your confidence and set your priorities straight.

Be Ready To Be Completely Honest With Your Partner

I cannot stress enough the importance of honesty. If you are honest and vulnerable with your partner, things will be so much easier! This helps you connect in ways youve never experienced before. It can be terrifying telling someone about all of your insecurities, problems, and fears but it will form a strong bond between both of you. For example, maybe your biggest insecurity is not being super outgoing and he says his is the same, you both and bond and work on being more outgoing together! Honesty will be your best friend in a relationship.

Keep A Good Balance

Wether you are a high school student, college student, or an adult, we all have important responsibilities. It is very important to keep a balance between work/school, your significant other, and your family and friends. If you don't keep this balance, you could lose yourself. Each aspect of your balance is important in different ways. Maybe you get comfort from your friends and family, but get love and excitement from your significant other. If you get too much of one aspect, you could find pleasure in only one thing and start to turn into someone you're not. Keep a calendar or schedule of times and dates to help keep a balance!

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.

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.
