Being In Love Is Overrated

Who would've thought I would go from awing at cute couples on tv to gagging.

Being In Love Is Overrated

When I was younger I used to love watching those cute teens fall in love on Disney Channel. I would sit in awe at them finding their way through a seemingly perfect relationship. Usually, in those shows, the boy would always take them on dates, pay for their meals, and pick them up as well.

Nowadays, it seems I'm the one paying for meals, driving them around, and planning the dates. My last two relationships have been exactly like that. I get it not everyone has been in a relationship like that, but I was.

Now when a guy tries to go on a date with me, it seems I'm always making up excuses. You all know the classic "I'm busy" line, sorry boys, I'm not busy. I'm just scared of being in love. I'm scared of commitment. I am afraid I will get in love and then be desperately heartbroken. So, in my mind, I let my heart know that I think love is overrated. My friends hate my philosophy of "if you act like you have no heart, then their isn't a heart to break."

I know one day I will find someone who will make me feel like the only girl in the world. Right now, at this point in my life, I don't want to be in love. Sure I love the thought of having fun with someone, being in a relationship, or going on dates. But, I feel like I could not just talk to someone without falling deeply in love with who I think they are.

For all the girls out their who think they need to be in a relationship to be happy, you're wrong. We can do anything we put our minds to without another person helping us. The thought of love should be overrated in your times of pivotal success. Learn to make moves in silence without the help from a relationship and let them naturally come to you.

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.

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.
