An Open Letter to the Person I Can Always Count On
Before It's News

My dear friend,

Life is not easy, but I’ve somehow managed to stumble through it with your help. Whenever I feel as though I have no one who will understand me, I know I can turn to you. You never judge me, you never belittle me, and you never turn me away. You’re there, you listen, and you support me. I honestly don’t know what I would do without your shoulder to cry on or your friendly face to laugh with.

I’ve shared some of my highest points with you, and you’ve stuck around when I was at some of my lowest points. I cannot begin to express how meaningful that is to me. You know my secrets, my fears, my dreams, and my goals, and I keep yours tucked away under lock and key. You can sense how I’m feeling and you never fail to help me through whatever’s going on.

Sometimes you suggest we watch a movie or make cookies when I’m feeling stressed out. Other times you simply offer to go to dinner with me so that I don’t have to be alone with my thoughts. And on severe occasions, you drop whatever you’re doing so we can sit around and complain about life. You’ve saved me from multiple breakdowns by replacing my negativity and melancholia with companionship and smiles.

The sight of you alone can lift my spirits when I’m having a particularly difficult time; talking to you can recharge my spirit. We aren’t always together, and sometimes we aren't even in close proximity one another, but I know that you’re only a text or a call away. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t feel thankful for having you in my life.

I’ve been through so much, and you’ve been right there with me when I needed someone to share it with. I don’t know how, but you’re one person that I feel no trace of negativity toward. I’ve never hated you, gotten mad at you, or let jealousy obscure how I really feel about you. I have only the purest feelings for you.

I feel as though you’ve helped to make me the person I am today. I’ve learned resilience from your encouragement and have come to terms with myself because of your faith in me. I cannot thank you enough for being a part of my journey and for allowing me to be a part of yours. I hope that I can be for you everything that you have been for me because that is the least that I could do to repay you for your unfaltering support.

You are truly an amazing person and these words I've written could never do you justice. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for you.

Much Love,

The Person Who Can Always Count On You

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. 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.
