It's Never Too Late to Say Thank You

Life is a constant battle. Hold on to others.

It's Never Too Late to Say Thank You

To the teacher who cared, to the coach that inspired you, to the friend that loved you, to the siblings that always had your back, to your significant other that always supported you and to anyone else who deserves a thank you.

Thank you for being you! Thank you for getting me through the good days and sticking around through the bad ones. Thank you for teaching me how to be myself, and for showing me the simplest joys in life. Thank you for believing in me when the day believing in myself became hard. Thank you for making me laugh and smile, and also for correcting me when I was wrong. Thank you for caring about me, and showing me some love even when things were going on in your own lives. Thank you for taking time out of your day to talk to me and to ask how I was doing. Thank you for listening, and thank you for pushing me to be my best self. Thank you for always doing the little things in life, and for going out of your way to make sure that I was okay. Thank you for trusting me, and for letting me tell you my secrets. Thank you for giving me words of encouragement when I needed it the most. Thank you for not letting me give up on things, and for not letting me quit. Thank you for being a part of my life, I am a better person because of you!

The list of thank you's never end, there are a lot of things in life to be thankful for, and you are one of them. Thanks for being the one to inspire, care, love and support me. Life is a constant battle and sometimes I may forget to mention that I'm thankful for you and for what you have done for my life. Even if I don't thank you as much as I know I should, I still am very happy that you have been a part of my life and I can't say thank you enough!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

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.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
