Each Year I Work On Becoming The Best Version Of Myself, But 2020 Is Going To Be My Year

Every year I blabber on and on about how I'm going to become the best version of myself. I'm taking it to a new level in 2020.

2019 was intended to be the year I took my life back. And to be quite honest, it was. I have been fighting depression and anxiety since my middle school days. 2019 was the year I started utilizing therapy, started taking medication, and ventured into self-love. This was a huge deal for me; I finally discovered my true self.

Since discovering who I am, everything has been much easier. Since becoming level-minded, everything has been much clearer. Taking control of my life has made practically everything better. I am able to view situations from a logical point of view. I realize that my emotions are not always fact. I am more patient and caring.

Take back your life. Don't let anything deter you from having the life you deserve. Sometimes the worst situations are outside your control. Yet, once you are an adult, it is your responsibility to help yourself. Do not let negative thoughts sway the way you view yourself. I know this is easier said than done. It is all about the small changes. Your behavior must match your identity. You must accept where you are.

I'm a social work major, and my professors tell us that we have to learn to "meet clients where they are." It would be phenomenal if we could treat ourselves with the same kindness in which we treat others. Accepting where we are before we try to come up with solutions would benefit us more than becoming easily frustrated with our circumstances.

2020 is going to be my year. I am going to use all my strengths to my advantage and work on my weaknesses to become the best version of myself. This is to shape the life I want oh so badly. I know I am only 18, but there is nothing wrong with getting a head start. The world is my oyster. It could be yours too.

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.

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.
