Coffee Trip In Grand Rapids

Thought Number 1:

The best time to write is when music plays. Everything in my world revolves around music but in the most uncommon ways. My life seems to contradict the very music that is apart of me- the very music that I love. There is this crazy scientific part of me, who always desires to find answers to all of my questions, but there is a much more important part and that is of music. I can’t define it in words without diminishing its value. It is merely more than words it is a feeling. Science can explain how it works, how I feel so abnormally inhuman in a beautiful contradicting way with music, but it cannot explain why. Why is music important to the survival of humans? Could we live without it? In an evolutionary sense, yes we could. But emotionally? Spiritually? Absolutely not. One that ignores that apparent feeling that is intrinsically within is contradicting the very value of their human worth. That is where the road to science seems to end for me. Where to doors close and the answers to my questions cannot be found. Who and what is science to diminish the quality of our genetic melodies?

Thought Number 2:

Blankets of red wine color and snuggle brown are atop a white bed, bigger than I deserve. A bottle of water half drunken. The song flightless bird playing in my headphones. Pumpkin spice candle and open dark window to feel the cool breeze that contrasts my pink sheep fuzzy pajama pants. Psychology terms are tapped to my tan walls and notes and a book is beside me. I feel as if I have too much, and I wonder what I have done to deserve a world that is so placed and functioning. How can make this a place where others can share too. How can I help the people that just don’t have what I have?

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
