Yes, Everybody, My Life Is A Mess, Guilty As Changed, But It's An *Organized* Mess

I got my formal dress the day of formal.

Yes, Everybody, My Life Is A Mess, Guilty As Changed, But It's An *Organized* Mess

I have always lived in what I call an "organized mess." What I mean by this is that sometimes I have trouble keeping my car organized, being on time, keeping things in my room in order, and being last minute on a lot of things. I like to blame it on the fact that I believe I am more abstract than the average person, and I don't live messy, instead, "freely." No matter how much clutter I feel that my life is in, things have always worked out for me.

As I got older, I started to think that this was bad and that maybe I wasn't "normal." I saw other people had their notebooks color-coded and their bed always made, but I didn't. I think the fact of the matter is that we are all a little bit hard on ourselves. A little bit of chaos is simply the way I live, and that is okay with me.

I've never been a planner, I've never been one to make sure my closet is organized, but I know how to navigate my ways, and that is fine.

While I don't condone living in a complete mess, I do condone living the way that works for YOU.

I had my sorority's formal just this past weekend, and in typical "me" fashion, I got my dress the day of. In fact, hours before. Seems crazy, but sometimes that's just the way it goes for me.

I'm a go with the flow kind of girl, and I think it's important for others to know that. It is okay to not have your life figured out every second, and it's okay if other people's ways don't work for you.

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.
