An open letter to my Girl Scout Leader:

You weren't just my Girl Scout leader, but a huge role model to me! You are so kind and caring and made me feel right at home! Joining your troop wasn't just something to do once a week, it helped me with socialization skills that I didn't have when I first joined! You taught me that anything is possible if I put my mind to it!

To be completely honest even though I was out doing good things in the community and trying to make changes, there were still girls that would hate on being a girl scout..they would say "That's so lame" "I'm so glad my mom didn't make me do that." These are now the girls that have very bad communication skills... I kinda feel bad for them...NOT. Oh and just a little FYI my mom didn't make me join, I am the one that suggested it and I really enjoyed it!

It was more than just a uniform to me, it honestly represented my entire childhood, and I was okay with that! This uniform helped me make some of my best friends growing up, and that I still have to this day even though we aren't as close as we used to be, I know for a fact I would be able to count on them...and the same goes for them! You also taught me that each badge meant way more than just going out collecting it and being done, you really taught me to step back and take a look at the bigger picture of the badges!

Now that I am 21 years old, I am no longer a Girl Scout and haven't been for a few years, you can bet I still have all my patches and uniforms collected and all my books. Why might you ask, well I'll tell you why that is a huge part of my life I am still not ready to let go of yet! I sometimes sit here and think oh wow I wish I could sell Girl Scout cookies just one more time in my life...then I step back and say oh never mind that was the craziest time of the entire thing, but honestly I wouldn't have traded it for the world!

Once a Girl Scout always a Girl Scout! You know what they always say "Make new friends,

but keep the old. One is silver, the other is gold. A circle is round, it has no end. That's how long, I will be your friend."

My Girl Scout leader was honestly the best! I loved her then and I love her now! She will always be one of my main supporters! I don't know if I would be where I am today if it wasn't for you! So with that being said, I want to thank you so much for everything you have ever done for me and helping make me a better person!

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.

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.
