Whatever Life Throws At You, Through It All, Be Positive

We all have those moments in life where we are just stuck. Stuck in our tracks wondering what is going on or where do we go next. When you can't seem to put your finger on the problem and you wonder maybe deep down maybe something is not wrong.

Life is rough.

We are constantly running around making a life for ourselves, whether it be interreacting with people, supporting and caring for our friends and ourselves, adulting, navigating through the busy college world, or just living.

It is okay to feel like you are in a rut and nothing is going your way.

It happens to everyone.

No one likes it, but we need these low points in our lives to bring us up and teach us that we can do it.

Whatever life throws at us we can handle. We just need to believe in ourselves.

When we feel like we are not reaching that point of achievement or satisfaction maybe you have not reached that point yet.

Who knows.

Life works in mysterious ways, and you just have to trust the process.

You have to trust the idea that everything happens for a reason. We meet people for a reason, we experience things for a reason, and we are who we are for a reason. Nothing just happens.

We must keep in mind that in the end, you are the person who dictates your future.

Every day you wake up and make choices. Choices that will affect your future you.

It is all a learning experience.

You make your life the way it is. Either take what life throws at you or what people say literally or ignore it.

In the end, you know your worth.

Do things that make you happy and do not ever settle for less than you deserve.

Because you know what you want in the end.

Even if you have not reached that goal, you will.

Keep working towards your dreams and bettering you. Maybe your dreams have not become a reality because you need to experience some life before you get what you have been striving for.

Whatever it is, keep believing.

You will get there. You will have the life you have always dreamed of. Just be positive and trust the process.

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.

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.
