An Open Letter To People Going Through A Rough Patch

Rough Patches will go away eventually

An Open Letter To People Going Through A Rough Patch

Dear People Going Through Tough Times,

Usually people have a time in their life where nothing seems to go right, everything is falling apart around them, and everything that can go wrong, does. This is sadly a normal thing and I wish the best for you, because in an ideal world, bad things would never happen to people.

You are going through a rough patch now, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel if you look hard enough. Sometimes it's harder to find because many grey clouds are clouding over it. But trust me when I say, they will eventually be driven away. Because, even with all the bad stuff in the world, there's a lot of good stuff. And eventually, they will even each other out.

The best thing to do, is build a strong support system, so you can get through what ever life throws at you. Whether it be family or friends, make sure to pick those you know will always be there for you.

Never be afraid to ask for help, because if you really need it, you should get it. No problem is too small for your support system to ignore. Because if they are there for you, everything will eventually fall into place.

So my friends who have hit a rough patch, you can get through it. Build up yourself and be ready for anything life throws at you. Build strong relationships, and become more confident. Make your life be an example for others going through the same thing.Never give up, because life is about growth and change.Everything is going to be okay, trust me.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.

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:

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.
