To The Boy Who Broke My Heart, I Hope You're Doing Well

You showed me so many things about myself through your emotional abuse that I didn't even know was inside of me.

To The Boy Who Broke My Heart, I Hope You're Doing Well
Kinsey Bradley

First off, I'd just like to say thank you. I know this may sound weird, but I am truly thankful for this overwhelmingly horrendous heartbreak. You showed me so many things about myself through your emotional abuse that I didn't even know was inside of me.

I learned how to be comfortable alone, and with you, I didn't know how to be okay if someone wasn't around me at all times.

I found comfort and security in your violent words because I thought that's what I deserved. I know my worth now and for that, I am so thankful.

You made me so insecure about my past and childhood because yours was so different than mine. I tried to run from my problems, and you presented them to me all the time as if I didn't know they were there. It scared me and made me feel so worthless and belittled.

Finally, I learned that my past doesn't define me, even though you made it seem like it did. I am so proud of myself for realizing that I am worth just as much as the next girl.

I don't always have to prove my worth to you, which was one the most exhausting and emotionally draining things I've done.

At the end of the day, I was still so insecure and unhappy. I used to blame myself for your unhappiness, and now I know that is so far from the truth.

You were so afraid to be happy. Now, I see so many things about you that I didn't when we were together because I was too busy justifying your actions.

Your words don't define me, and they will never again. I will never feel so shameful about loving someone again. You can never manipulate my emotions ever again.

Best wishes,

A girl who's moving on

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.

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.
