Don't Let It Consume You
favim.com

Some days are absolutely terrible; we are knocked down straight on our faces and it almost feels impossible to get up. Sometimes it’s a result of a bunch of tiny things throughout the day that make us feel like life is against us. Sometimes it’s the result of a really, really, REALLY big event or announcement that can turn the sweetest of days sour. Sometimes it’s the result of “nothing” that we can explain but our emotions are just off. Sadness is a very consuming emotion and can be extremely hard to shake. I think it is important to cry and allow yourself to be sad when needed but not to let sadness control you. For me, the best way to rid myself is to take my mind off of whatever is making me sad. I’ll listen to music, daydream about the future, or read some inspirational quotes. I have a whole Pinterest board of quotes but I would like to share a few of my favorites with you.

1. “Mistakes are the stepping stones to wisdom” – Leon Brown

2. “I will love. More. So much love that no one will have any idea what to do with me. They will watch with a confused look and wonder why I give so much and do not ask for more in return. I will give it because giving is getting and there is nothing quite so important as emptying your heart every single day and leaving nothing undone, no declarations of it unsaid. I will not only stop and smell the flowers, I will plant them myself and watch them grow old with me. I will pull over and dance in every single rainfall, and I will make snow angels even when there is hardly any snow left for the wings. I will never, ever believe in the words “too late” because it is never too late to be exactly who you wish, do exactly what you should, say exactly what needs to be heard, and live the exact life you should be living.” --Tyler Knott Gregson

3. “In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.” – Buddha

4. “He said, “There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live.” --Dalai Lama

5. “If you were born with the weakness to fall you were born with the strength to rise” --Rupi Kaur

6. “Forgive them even if they are not sorry” --unknown

7. “She believed she could so she did” --unknown

8. “I still get very high and very low in life. Daily. But I’ve finally accepted the fact that sensitive is just how I was made, that I don’t have to hide it and I don’t have to fix it. I’m not broken.” --unknown

9. “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” --Matthew 6:27

10. For what it’s worth . . . it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.” --F. Scott Fitzgerald

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.

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.

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.
