Positivity can be contagious.

Being More Positive Can Make Your Days Much Better

When things go wrong, we can all agree it makes it hard to have a positive attitude. Sometimes you may feel like shutting down for the day and just doing nothing at all. But that's not doing yourself or anyone around you any favors. It sets you back in your goals and piles up your workload.

There are many ways that being more positive can help you have better days. Have you ever been around someone in a bad mood, and felt like it put you in a bad mood instantly? Being negative can definitely rub off on people. But being positive can also have the same effect.

Trying to be positive for yourself and the people around you can make the biggest difference. I feel like making a conscious effort to stay positive can make your day 10 times better.

One way to have better days is to start first thing in the morning. When you wake up, try telling yourself that no matter what it is going to be a good day. Doing that can make the most difference in the way you handle things that may be unexpected. If you have a positive mindset from the time you wake up, it can be harder to let your day be ruined by unexpected or negative things.

In everyday life, there are going to be little things that don't go your way that can dull your mood or get you down. It is inevitable that not everything works in your favor. But knowing that, it should make it easier to accept that issue.

Trying to stay positive, and not letting setbacks get you down is a sure way to have better days. If you start working on more positivity one step at a time, you can train your mind in a way to react better to negative outcomes.

I'm not saying that it is as easy as snapping your fingers to be more positive, but if you really try and bring more positivity into every day, you will see a difference. You never know what others around you are going through, and a smile or a good mood has the possibility to bring them so much happiness.

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.
