Despite The Unknown, Enjoy Every Moment

Times are uncertain, but continue to live your best life.


With each coming day, it seems like we will never get through this. We keep getting bad news or words of uncertainty.

Families are struggling to stay sane, while also worrying about finances and schooling. Businesses are afraid of closing up shop because of how long they have been on hold. Essential workers, especially in our healthcare system, are tirelessly doing the best they can to help others.

Although it may seem like this will never end, it will. Although it may seem like we can't do anything, we still can.

Be generous. Do something you have always wanted to do for someone. Show them how much you care.

Go outside whenever the weather allows it and enjoy nature. Look at the clouds and how they are moving. Find some flowers to plant, to smell, to pick, to enjoy.

Take a drive and ride with the windows down. Blast the music and sing at the top of your lungs. Smile.

Do some gardening or cleaning. Do some work early so that you have more time to do other hobbies. Take advantage of the ingredients you have in your house, and cook or bake something you have always wanted to try.

Go for a walk or run. Exercise. Don't damper on your old routine because suddenly everything has changed.

There is change all over. Through this pandemic, the world is still turning. Be thankful for that.

Earth is prettier because we are taking more care of ourselves, of our home. Enjoy this as this may not last once our new normal is initiated.

We all miss the lives we used to live. Interacting with people, seeing our families, gathering for birthdays, holidays, concerts, church. We miss the freedom of being able to go to the store without a care in the world, but doesn't that make you think?

We took so many things for granted, so I pray we don't do that anymore after this is over.

Despite the unknown, the uncertainty, the fear, enjoy every single moment. With your family, with your pets, with your friends and significant others (via FaceTime or social distancing OF COURSE). Hey, even with your schoolwork because, really, it could be worse.

Continue to pray, continue to have hope, have faith. Continue to smile through the storm. We will see that light at the end of the tunnel, but until then, continue to live.

Live your best life. Once this is over, we will come out stronger, better people. Life will be different, but hold on to the positivity. We can still have fun, and we will still have fun.

Again, the world is still turning.

And thank God for that.

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.

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.
