I Can't Stop Thinking About Suicide

That's the thing about committing to suicide, it is a life changing commitment

I can't stop thinking about suicide. It's something I've thought about for a very long time. I think how can someone feel like their life isn't one worth living... I think about how their families and friends, pets, co-workers, and the waitress at their favorite local diner feel. I think about the accomplishments that never get accomplished. I think about the dreams that never get lived. But mostly I just think.

It's something on my mind often. You are on my mind often. The empty feeling I got when I received that phone call, that phone call changed my life, is the same feeling I got when you didn't answer the phone. You were the first person I called, and I think about how bad I am hurting.

But soon my mind wonders back to thinking about how loved everyone is. How blessed we are to see another day; something we all take for granted. Something that some 44,193 Americans won't get to see. That's the thing about committing to suicide, it is a life changing commitment. It is a permanent solution, for a temporary problem.

Loosing someone to suicide leaves you in this black, empty hole. This hole that gives you insight to how they felt, alone and scared.No one should ever fee like that, no matter what your problem is big or small, it is important. You are important.

If you ever need anyone to talk to or to just to listen don't hesitate to email me at denoant@gmail.com or call the suicide prevention hotline at 1-800-273-8255.

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.
