I've always said that spring is my favorite season. Life is full of seasons. Happy seasons, sprinkled with some somber ones. Some difficult seasons, and seasons of love. But through every season of life, there is always something beautiful. Usually in the darkest of seasons, a season of light follows soon behind. And so, through every cold day, I'd feel the darkness in my bones. It would lie heavily on my spirit. I was never too worried, however. Because I knew that the world would soon allow the brightness of spring to illuminate my world and allow joy to find itself once again.

So, I'd like to talk about what spring means to me. Aside from the tangible manifestation of spring—whether it be the flowers, or the buds popping through, or perhaps longer days, and vibrant energy—it's the idea of spring that I personally associate with so greatly.

Spring is all about finding light after darkness. It's about poking your head through the earth even if there's a layer of snow covering the ground. It's about taking that first step toward of a journey of growth.

I always talk about this one particular type of day. The very first spring day. And I'm not talking about the calendar day. But it's first day where you don't have to wear a jacket, and all you want to do is be outside. It is a weight lifted from your spirit, and it is permission to feel the sunlight seep into your pores. The beautiful weather can dictate your growth. It can inspire you to change with the season, to jut out of your darkness and to bloom.

So this spring, allow the beauty of the flowers and the trees, the songs of the birds, and the long, wonderful days of sunlight to foster some growth. Choose to go outside, spend time with people you care about. Allow yourself to listen to what you need. When you take off your jacket this spring, take off any negativity from your life along with it. Free yourself of impurity and pressure in an effort to release into a state of liberation. Spring is the time for rebirth. Ask yourself this spring: What would you like to change? What would you like to do? But most of all, ask yourself what would make you happy. Take this spring to bloom into a better version of yourself. Allow yourself to fall deeply in love this season.

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.

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.
