Like a Cloud

An original poem written with dreams in mind. Open your perspective to reach your goals!


Hey readers! I wrote this piece to motivate looking at even the smallest things for some motivation for personal goals. Sometimes, we all get caught up in looking at detailed plans over taking a risk. I am not saying don't plan (I feel best when goals are planned!), but don't forget to give yourself the opportunity to take a different approach with things. You never know what more inspiration can be uncovered. As always, go live out your dreams! Much love.

I saw a cloud in the sky,

And I wondered, 'how freely they slide'

The expanse of this one was noticeably large

As it smoothly glided across the earth's dome

That cloud moved so effortlessly on it's own

Without worry someone wouldn't leave it alone

I so badly wished to be as lazily unrestricted

As that cloud, seeing all there was to see

Those days, I felt like the things I wanted

Fell out of my grasp, being left and forgotten

The places I wanted to see and go to

Where all but ignored and undefined

Again and again, I tried to find new perspectives

Hoping, one day, I could get the impression

That, like a cloud, I could see all there was

And be all that I sought to

'How much does a cloud see in a day?'

I questioned out loud

Yet, a thought occurred to me on how:

I can regain those dreams again

If I truly believe I can achieve it

Though a cloud's journey is different

I began to see that there was no limit

To how much I needed to have faith in myself

And where I wanted to go

For I can do anything

If my mind is as opened

As the sky above me

My dreams can transform into anything

As the clouds drifting along in the breeze

All it takes it a little push within me

Who knows what can be propelled just by that

However, not giving myself the chance

Keeps me restricted and closed in

I knew that if I thought of that cloud

I, too, could accomplish any possibility

That cloud inspired the fearlessness

Blooming inside of me

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?

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.
