How Being a Morning Person Ruined My Life

No Coffee Required. Put your pitchforks down!

How Being a Morning Person Ruined My Life

Oh whoa whoa, that's a rather extreme statement, huh?. But yes, being a happy noncaffeinated morning person has destroyed my life. Why? because of people like YOU who HATE mornings and life, and love coffee.

I don't do coffee. I don't, and I understand that is very hard to comprehend for some people but I really dislike the bitter taste of coffee. Sorry, does this revoke my hipster membership card? I have never been into drinking this so-called liquid gold beverage not even if it comes from the Himalayas or from Colombia, or form some eclectic backyard in Austin. I wake up, I drink water and boom! I am awake! No need for coffee to "feel awake". No grumpiness and "Don't talk to me until my cup of coffee" scenarios. Your memes don't resonate, they don't make sense to me and quite frankly make me wanna start a new "F caffeine dependency movement"

I guess this makes me a morning person. I love everything about the mornings. The soft and gentle sunlight, the dew on the grass, the expectation! The possibility of making a brand new day filled with new things to learn and do! I am full of energy in the mornings and ready to tackle the world.

Why do we lose that feeling when we become adults?

Oh, I HATE Mondays! (you say) The internet is filled with memes and grumpy cry baby grownups every single Monday morning.

Why do you all hate Mondays'? I love Mondays and you know what? that is OK, don't be a hater, don't hate me for loving Mondays'. Don't you point at me with your cup of Starbucks pumpkin spice latte and judge my lack of love for coffee. Chillax.

Monday mornings represent the start of a new week, and it means I can forget about all the screw-ups from the past - as in last week, yes that's in the past! - unless it has to do with my husband. Sorry honey, I remember what you did in 2005! What? I am a woman we remember everything you did wrong always and forever, it's just the way it is.

So I am a morning person and I enjoy mornings, and I do it without a single drop of coffee. Yes, I am bragging! But it's ok if you are not a morning person too and if you need coffee and I don't, it's fine. That is the beauty of humankind. We are all different and unique in our own way. SMILE! It's Monday!

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.
