A Letter To My Pet

I miss you.

A Letter To My Pet
Katie Lintz

Dear Beloved,

I know this is hard for you to understand-- it can’t be easy to read this. I just up and left without you getting the chance to realize what was really happening and I broke your heart. Days went by without a word from me; how can I begin to apologize? The time came for me to pack my stuff and start a different chapter in my life. There was nothing you did to lead me to leave you behind…trust me. If it were in my power you would be here in this big city with me. You may not want to hear this, but I think our love is worth fighting for. My dear, we spent so much time together these past five years that it would be a mistake to not try and continue our relationship long distance. I miss our long walks in the park, endless movie nights and road trips. Even though you didn’t really say much that often, you were always there for me and were someone I could trust wholeheartedly. Whenever I came home from having a bad day, you would always automatically cheer me up. No one else can do that.

It’s fair to say that for how much I depend on you, you depend on me as well. We need each other in this crazy life, and that’s why I want you to understand just how much I love you. Pictures of us still hang in my apartment--I haven't forgotten about you. My friends see them and always say they want you to come visit. I know for a fact that you would love the people I've met here. (We have an endless supply of peanut butter too...I know that's your favorite). However, I know you can't drive yet, so don't fret over making the trip on your own. Please keep active--don't sleep on the couch all day. Watch what you eat too; cookies and chocolate are good but not good for you. Too many treats will get you.

Hopefully, you can find it in you to forgive me for leaving you. I'll see you soon.

Loving you endlessly,

Your Human.

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.

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.
