Letter To Depressed Teens

I know that, right now, it hurts. It feels like everyone's against you. It feels like you’re alone. But they’re not, and you’re not.

I know sometimes you just want it to end, but now is not your time.

I know sometimes it hurts so much you go numb, and I know sometimes it feels like the only way to take away the numbness is to feel pain. But one day, the numbness will fade, without the blade.

I know that sometimes you look down at yourself and you hate it. But you won’t always feel like this. One day, you’ll love what you see.

I know that sometimes you wonder what’s wrong with you, but it’s OK to feel sad. You’ll be better soon.

I know you think your parents are assholes, but they’re doing everything for you and one day, you’ll be so obsessed with them you won’t understand how you ever said, “I hate you.”

I know that some days, you just want to lock yourself away from the world and feel sorry for yourself, but you won’t feel like this forever. One day, you’ll never want to go back to your room, because the days are just so good.

I know you think you’re dumb, and you think your future looks bleak, but you’re actually a remarkably bright girl or guy -- you’ll find the place that’s right for you.

And I know it’s hard to believe, but one day, you’ll be happy. The kind of happy that makes you excited to wake up in the morning, excited to eat breakfast, go to class, see your friends, do your homework, hang out.

One day, you will love yourself again.

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.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
