5 Things That Don't Suck About Breakups
51 sad break up quotes

So you're going through a breakup and you think the world is falling apart. When in reality, there are a bunch of things that suck, there are things that don't suck too. Here's a list of things that don't suck about your breakup.

1. You get to mingle: This is probably one of the best parts. You get to talk to whoever you want, whenever you want.

2. Everyone is there for you: What's better than everyone offering to buy you food and hanging out with you? Nothing.

3. No one wants to step on your toes: Everyone is so nice to you because they don't want to upset you, it's great.

4. Independence: You get to do whatever you want without worrying about someone else.

5. You get a little stronger with each one: You get to see what you deserve and you get stronger every time it happens.

I'm not saying breakups don't suck, because they do, but there are definitely some things that don't suck about them. You get to do what you want, when you want to. That's the best part. Even though breakups suck, always try to look on the bright side.

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.

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.

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.
