An Open Letter To The Guy I Worshipped

I am worth so much more than a boy that doesn't treat me right.

An Open Letter To The Guy I Worshipped

Dear You,

When we met, you treated me right. You said all the right things, anything you thought I'd want to hear. You led me into your trap, which consumed me for months. You used me, and it wasn't until after the fact that I realized it. I can't even say I was infatuated with you because the truth is, "you" were never really there. I was infatuated with the thought of you, the "you" that you made me like so much, that everything around me was a blur.

Maybe your actions weren't intentional, but they sure as hell were hurtful. Who am I kidding? You had me wrapped around your finger, you knew what you were doing. You put me under a spell and I didn't even know it. I let you drag me through your games, yet I was still infatuated with you. I made excuses for why you did what you did, I tried to rationalize my thoughts. Was I being crazy? Was I overthinking things? You do what so many guys do, treat us right, and then suddenly you become a whole new person, once you get what you want. I have dealt with it many times, but mark my words this is the last time. You made me realize that I am worth so much more than late night "come over" texts and talking to me only when it's convenient for you.

I will no longer be walked all over. I will treat myself with respect, and always remind myself that I deserve so much better. I deserve someone that will truly care about me, enough to stick around, someone that doesn't have a hidden agenda.

One thing I will learn from this series of unfortunate events is that I am worth so much more than a boy that doesn't treat me right. The way things ended, only reflect on your character, not mine. I am truly grateful for your disrespectful actions and sh*tty personality, because I will come out of this situation a stronger person, while you will continue with your ways until hopefully one day you realize there is so much more to life. I will not be defined by my mistakes because I am a strong independent woman and I don't need no man. *Flips hair.*

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.
