11 Things 'One Tree Hill' Taught Me

Eleven Things One Tree Hill Taught Me:

1) It is okay to be scared of your decisions, but sometimes you just have to go for it and accept the consequences later. Be like Peyton when she finally lets herself fall for Lucas. So what if you get your heart broken a thousand times, that's just the price you pay for happiness sometimes. "Bless are those hearts that can bend, they shall never be broken"

2) Real Nathan Scott's do exist, but you have to look high and low. You will get your heart broken trying to find the right one, but if you are ever half as happy as Nathan and Haley consider yourself one of the lucky ones. "Don't say I never gave you anything"

3) No matter how you identified in high school, whether it be "friendly," "prom queen," or a loner, it does not define your future. Look how successful Brooke turned out to be despite her high school experience.

4) Always follow your dreams. If you wanna be an artist, don't hesitate. If you want to pursue music, do that. If you wanna be a pro athlete, go for it. If you want to be an author, DO IT. Chase your dreams. Do not ever be afraid of failure, because it only means that you tried.

5) It is sad, but tragedy will bring out your real friends. When someone dies, or someone is sick, that is when you will find the real people in your life. The people there for the long run are the ones you need to stick with.

6) Falling in love again after losing someone does not make you a bad person, it just makes you human. Clay put Sarah before himself for a long time, but in the reality of it she wanted him to be happy. Always be with someone who makes you happy.

7) The people you thought were unapproachable may turn out to be your best friends someday. Your biggest enemy might turn out to be your brother... (literally and figuratively)

8) Everyone deserves a second chance. If Nathan hadn't given Haley another chance after Chris Keller, there would be no Jamie.

9) It is okay to like Chris Keller, I do

10) No matter how long someone has been gone, you still think of them. Whitey was hardly in the last seasons, but you never forgot any of the wise things he said. Karen, Andy, and Lilly were gone, but you always wondered how they were doing. Lucas and Peyton left, but not a single episode went by that you didn't think about them.

11) Life is never going to be easy, but as long as you have supportive people beside you that doesn't matter.

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.
