An Open Letter To The Guy Who Was Almost My Always

Dear Almost,

You are arguably the best thing that has ever happened to me. You taught me so much myself and for that I can never thank you enough for that. Sadly, you are also arguably the worse thing that has ever happened to me as well. You taught me the true feeling of disappointment, and I will always hate you for that.

Yet, somewhere underneath all of the hate that I have for you, there will always be an unconditional love. The love alway wins the late night battles that happen in my mind. You met me at a very difficult time in my life, and I am truly sorry about that. However I am not sorry for how things ended with us, you should be. I treated you like you were the last molecule of oxygen in a gas chamber while you treated me like I was a penny in a bank vault filled with millions of dollars.

When I met you I realized why things did not work out between me and everyone before you. You gave me a new purpose in life, one that I had never had before. Yet, somewhere underneath all of the hope I had for you there was always a disappointment.You would go days on end without talking to me or even texting me back, but I know phones are not your thing and you live life for the moment. I saw something bad coming from the beginning, but I tried to talk myself out of it and just thought maybe I was going crazy or looking for reasons to quit loving you, I was not. I saw the end from the beginning; I guess I just did not want the end to happen.

We quit talking two days before my prom, the one that we were supposed to go to together, remember?

I kept telling myself I will move on and find someone else who loves me the way that I loved you, that has not happened yet. Everyone else tells me that I will find someone else who makes me feel the way you did, but no matter how hard I try, I still try to find you in every other guy I talk to. I look for things like your kind russet eyes, your bushy eyebrows, and soft espresso colored skin. I listen to their voice and try to hear a deep voice with kind words, yet I can never find you in anyone else. Part of me will always think that you are the one that got away.

I am starting to think that this is a sign from god. You were the first time I had hope in something for a long time. You were great, you just weren't great for me, and that is okay. I am done being mad. I am done being sad and I am done being bitter. This is because in all honesty the love in our almost will be stronger than the love in most peoples always, even if it was unrequited.

With my deepest regrets for holding on too long,

The girl who loved you more than she loved herself

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.

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.
