Dreams: A Memoir From 6th Grade.

I come from my most deep and painful sorrow,

I hope that we will speak again tomorrow.

I would love to be forever friends,

But I hope and I pray, this relationship will not come to a painful end.

When the yellow bright sun sets, and the moon travels up,

You will appear in my deep dreams for the best of luck.

When I look into those eyes, those gray stone eyes,

It is like a powerful wave of the blue ocean and the salty sea,

And I feel the overwhelming sensation of someone watching over me.

You are filled with concrete and despair,

But you my dear, cannot care.

For I am close, here,

I am near.

When you hear my echoing call,

You cannot just simply fall into that whole of nothing.

You made my body shiver, shake in pain,

Then all of my blood was pushed into the top of my brain.

For it was over, there was nothing to say anymore-

So I closed shut the heaviest of a door.

I am standing here, right in front of you, can you not see?

I am not the good that is living inside of me.

I love you, please do not let your brain ever forget-

Can I ever prevent what is coming next?

I am not here, the presence is not me, can’t you see?

Then where are you?

I am in the green valley, the valley we walked miles to, with the earth in our hands-

And you will soon see me one day again in these wide lands,

So I cry softly, painfully by your grave stone,

And I speak in the softest of a tone-

You were the heaven for me, way, way above-

And all I ever wanted to do was simply shower you with my love.

Goodbye my dear,

Wipe your tears and your eyes clear,

I am no longer here.

So I sit,

I sit alongside the pier right here,

Hoping one day you will reappear.

Love always,

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.
