Letting Go

It's hard but it makes you so much stronger..

Letting Go

Letting go.

It’s one of the hardest things to do, but something that we have to do quite a bit in life.

It could be something as little as letting go of the fact that you failed your test, or as big as letting go of someone you love.

Either way, letting go is hard. Letting go will always be something you have to do, but something you'll never fully understand how to do.

In the end, you realize that letting go was the best choice, even if it hurt. Like letting go of a toxic relationship because it's not healthy anymore, or because they don't love you back. But after you let go you feel relief, but you don't know where it might go.

One day you come across that time in your head, where you let go, and you'll see that despite the trouble, the hurt, anger and every little other thing, you were hurt but so so brave. Focusing on yourself, when faced with an if or when situation is the most important, and letting go through the pain is making you stronger and stronger.

You'll sit in your room for days wondering if you made the right decision. You'll cry, and beg for guidance. Sometimes it'll take you on a whirlwind of emotions, but you know yourself better than anyone. If you feel like you should let go of something, it is the best choice.

It might hurt, but in the end..I promise you will be smiling. Let go of whatever is

laying deep on you, because that is causing you the most hurt.

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.

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.
