Deciding My Future

Not knowing what I will be when I graduate, feeling uncertain if this is really the path I will take, am I giving up to easy?

Deciding My Future
Miriam concepcion

Unfortunately some or maybe all do not know the certainty of what it is to come. We all have had plans and ideas set for our future yet some may never be set in stone. That is when complications arise, the mystery of the unknown, we are told often if not that a time will come and we will discover what it is our future will really hold. There will be a time where we would decide our choices with certainty yet when will be that time some like me can be very impatient and maybe even scared. Not knowing what would happen after these four in college. If the decisions we have made already with certainty will stand strong.

Recently one of my friends had posted a " To whom this may concern", and as I read this it couldn't be more true. So now I share you this and maybe hopefully quench some of your fears.

To whom this may concern,

College is hard. College has its ups and downs. It is not like high school. There are going to be times that you want to give up, grades may not always be on point, and you may change your major 5-6 times before you graduate. Everyone is different. However, you begin to learn about yourself, your strengths and weaknesses. What you like and don't like, and you will become the person that you want to become. Fall in love with your dreams and achieve them. Maybe you need to change your direction and that's okay too. Maybe this new path is what's better for you. College helps you find yourself, and never give up from finding who you truly want to be, no matter how much work it takes! Hope this blesses someone this evening. Much love.

We can only continue on the path we are deciding to take when there is uncertainty follow your desires, you can be what ever you to be, you can study all that you wants. There is never a limit on knowledge, the only limit is your ambition to do so. It's okay to be unsure, it really sucks and can sometimes be really stressing, I share this with you be because I myself know the feeling. Not knowing what I will be when I graduate, feeling uncertain if this is really the path I will take, am I giving up to easy? These are all unanswered that I have faced,

Does it get easy is the question?

Well maybe not yet but it will be. To all the the question paths we take

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.

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.
