Learning To Trust In Yourself

I probably won't steer myself wrong.

Learning To Trust In Yourself

As time goes on and I get older, I often find myself questioning decisions that I make. It is not that I think my decisions are bad or wrong, I just second guess out of protection for myself. As I exited my teenage years this January and entered my twenties, adulthood became a reality. I realize that to many their twenties is a time to simply have fun and to get in all of the fun things before they settle down, but to me my twenties are a bit different. It isn't that I won’t have fun and do crazy things, but I realize now how important it is to be kept dignified in all of my doings.

As time goes on, the more important the decisions I face will become. I have to choose between right and wrong on things that may never stop reflecting me. I have to think about how my decisions will affect my schooling, getting a job, and starting a family. To me it isn’t about right now it is about the culmination of all of the right nows into my future reality.

That being said, as I begin to question all of my feelings and thoughts and plans, I also begin to realize how smart I have been up until now. I realize how much thought I have put into all of my decisions in my “adult-ish” life. I realize that if I listen to myself, I probably won’t steer myself wrong. But trusting those instincts can be hard sometimes, and it's important to remind yourself that you can. Having faith and trust in yourself may be the best thing you can do, because in the end it will only be you who has to live and deal with those decisions. So if it makes you happy and proud, have faith and have trust in yourself.

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.
