Frizzy Hair

Life is not perfect, but that is what makes it beautiful.

Frizzy Hair
Thought Catalog

I have always had frizzy hair. For as long as I can remember, I have stood in my mirror every morning and said to myself “Ugh, why is my hair so frizzy.” I have always been average at school. For most of elementary, middle, and High School, I made A’s and B’s and yes, even an occasional C. When I came to college, that became no different. I remember thinking most of my life, “I wish I was better in school.” I stand in my closet full of clothes before every event I have to go to, and think to myself, “I have nothing to wear.”

I compare my hair, my grades, and my closet to other people. “I wish I had his brain, I wish I had her hair, or her closet. Now, I sit here typing all of that out. I read it back to myself and think “This is all so silly.” And yet, tomorrow, when I wake up I will look in the mirror and say “Ugh, why is my hair so frizzy.”

This is dangerous. Destructive, even. You see, I am comparing my life away. I am so wrapped up in what I don’t have I am missing all that I do. You see, I may never have the brains to go to Harvard, hair soft and beautiful enough to be in a Pantene commercial, or a wardrobe that would make Kylie Jenner jealous. But I have the small stuff, and I’ve learned that is the big stuff.

I have roommates that let me use their coffee creamer when I’m out. I have a computer that I can binge watch Netflix for hours on end. I have parents who almost annoy me with how much they love to facetime. (Almost, I love your calls, Mom and Dad). I have grandparents who are learning to text, just so they can talk to me more. I have friends who bake me cookies when they think I’m sad and want to dance around the kitchen to our favorite songs. I have sat on my bedroom floor with tears in my eyes from laughing so hard at a good joke. I get to sing out loud in the shower, and I've had really good homemade pizza.

Life is not perfect. But that is what makes life so beautiful.

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.
