Dear Best Friend, Long Distance Sucks

It's just weird. We saw each other every day, we spoke every day, we hung out every day. Now, it's just the opposite.

Dear Best Friend,

We're really not even that far away. It's just weird. We saw each other every day, we spoke every day, we hung out every day. Now, it's just the opposite. While I'm forever grateful for the daily loving Snapchat, nothing will ever beat your hugs and laughter.

Our reunions consist of soul-crushing hugs, local gossip, and what we've been up to since that last time. You've met every single boy I'd ever dated and been there for every single heartbreak I'd ever encountered. Distance makes it harder for you to meet the new guy, and if he breaks my heart, it'll suck even more not having you there for our ice-cream/movie night/sleepover tradition.

They say high school was such a small part of our lives, and you were easily my favorite part. You're the friend that will come to my wedding one day, be the aunt to my kids, and be my favorite vacation spot. It's still weird not seeing you every day and knowing that we can't even count the days until we see each other again. You're the lifelong friend that's one in a million.

High school was a generally horrible place, but you made it so much better. We faced the drama together, celebrated the great times, and supported each other through the bad. We have endless inside jokes that no one else would ever possibly understand, and I know I'll never find a friendship like ours again.

So while we're far away, we can catch up with the occasional phone call. We can plan ahead for summer trips and fun, and we can miss each other while we're gone. Thank you for being my person and the best friend anyone could ever ask for, and I will always be proud to yell "THAT'S MY BEST FRIEND" in a crowd of strangers.


Your Best Friend

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.

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.
