Don’t Forget To Feed Your Hope In This Drought

That can make or break your time in quarantine.

Don’t Forget To Feed Your Hope In This Drought

So we are on day who knows what of this quarantine and I think more and more people are starting to feel anxious about our lives and what to do now. It was fun to binge watch guilt free and lay around without a nagging conference call to get to, but now what. The reality of this situation is becoming more and more evident each day which is causing a lot more stress and anxiety not knowing how long this will go on for.

First, know you are not alone. We are all in this together even though we are not physically close. We all share the same feelings, some more than others, but nonetheless we're right there with you. It may seem like our world may never get back to the way it was and that all hope is lost for a normal year, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. Things will be up and running and our lives will go back to the daily grind we so desperately missed. Our jobs will pick back up right where they left off and the busyness of calls, meetings, reports will fill up our day once again. If the stress of this quarantine is getting to you, remember to keep hope alive that our world and our lives will be restored to the way they were before all of this chaos. Now, it may look a little different for everyone, but it will be similar.

Don't fall prey to desperation. Pray to God and ask Him to bring you hope. Find spiritual readings that restore hope. The Bible has plenty to say on hope. But overall, don't lose it. Think about your life after this is all done. What would you have liked to accomplish or started? If it all ended tomorrow and you could go back to your daily routine, what would you have wanted to do in this time? It's all about perspective and when we feed our hope instead of starving it, we learn to appreciate the seasons of our lives.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
