A Letter To The People Who Should Keep Their Opinions To Themselves

Seriously, it's not cool to put others down through you're negative words, bro.

A Letter To The People Who Should Keep Their Opinions To Themselves


Haven’t you ever heard the expression, “if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it”? Okay, we get it, you’re entitled to your own opinions, but there are just some things you shouldn’t have an opinion on. My thing is if it doesn’t affect you personally, then why is it a big deal to you at all? It shouldn’t be. It’s like the whole gay marriage thing. Why THE HELL are a bunch of straight people dictating the lives of people who are just trying to love someone??? Like honestly, it has NOTHING to do with your life and its not gonna kill you or drastically change anything. Your opinion is the most irrelevant, so honestly shut up about it because no one wants to hear your negativity, thanks.

I just don’t get why people make such a big fuss about things that don’t directly affect their lives at all. Just because a person who was born with female parts wants to identify as a male doesn’t mean that you have to change yourself either. If you’re that insecure about your own gender that you have to criticize the choice of someone else, well you might want to figure out your s*** first. I know the truth stings a little bit but so does your negative attitude towards what makes others happy. It just really doesn’t make sense to me why you have to criticize someone. Just let them live their damn lives.

Like I said, you’re entitled to your own opinion, yes. About politics, Beyoncé and whatever the hell else you people care about, but you don’t have the right to inflict power upon someone else to prevent them from living their life peacefully. Just be nice, it’s really not that hard at all. It’s actually cool to be nice because everyone knows what ends up happening to all the assholes in the world; life comes back to bite them in the ass. So just stay positive, constructively criticize and focus on your own life. Stay in your lane.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
