Do it for yourself

Looking forward. It's easier said than done sometimes but doing it is worth it. The reward is far greater when you stick to the path of achieving a goal. I've found myself getting overwhelmed the past few weeks and slowly find myself drifting farther and farther from focus. 33 weeks pregnant, five-sixths of the way finished with 21 college credit hours and working full time, and constantly thinking about so many things that still have to be done before our daughter makes her arrival. I'm here to tell you that not giving up is hard at times. Focus is lost sometimes and the thought of "giving up" on each goal is such an easy thought, but then I remind myself that the bigger picture is so much prettier than each single puzzle piece. I look forward to the arrival of my daughter, fighting fire again, finishing this semester, and next so I can graduate with my degree. All these things show me that all the simple things now are apart of a much bigger picture. I'm here to say don't give up, keep moving forward, see the long term goals for what they are worth not just the small stepping stones that get there. Sometimes the stepping stones get blurry and seem almost obsolete however the horizon is just ahead. Keep your dreams big, keep your head up. I want to be someone that somebody can look up to, and for that to happen you've got to be willing to fight the tough battles, pick yourself up after the hardest falls and move forward when its time to get things done. So let me close by saying there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

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.
