A Love Letter To Chocolate

You are my biggest weakness.

A Love Letter To Chocolate

Dearest Chocolate,

I am going to take this opportunity to tell you how much you mean to me…

When I was first introduced to you, probably nineteen years ago, my life changed for the better. My taste buds went crazy, and I fell in love with your creamy, rich goodness instantly.

As the years went by, I gained a deeper appreciation for you. I realized more and more that you were able to completely change my mood and make me a happier person. If I was ever experiencing a bad day, I knew that I could turn to you and then regret my sweet-binge later on.

Thank you for offering me compliments every time I open up one of your Dove chocolates. Thank you for reminding me that treating myself is okay, and that it is something that I should do in life more often. Thanks for being the epitome of perfection, especially when I need to satisfy my sweet-tooth.

One of the reasons that I adore you the most is because you take on so many forms and you’re always amazing. Nutella…don’t even get me started. Ice cream with magic shell…unbelievable combination. S’mores…mouth-watering. Fudgy brownies make me weak. Reese’s peanut butter cups…dynamic duo. Okay, I think you get the point.

I know that our relationship has been complicated at some points due to your high calorie content. I know that you’re considered somewhat healthy in your dark form, but I prefer milk. I understand that you are not the greatest thing for me to eat, but I can’t deny that you will always be a constant companion of mine.

Nothing is there to comfort me like you do when times get tough, or when I’m really stressed out. You are always available to make me feel better and make me a happier version of myself.

We have definitely had our share of rough patches throughout my life. When I started hitting my teenager years, I realized that I could no longer eat as much of you as I want. This is when I knew that you were both a blessing and a curse in my life. Too much of you would result in weight gain and would make me feel bad about myself.

This is when I started making an effort to avoid you in order to feel better and look better. Honestly, the problem was never you, it was just me understanding the importance of self-control. I also learned to appreciate you more because I would only have you in small portions. I have my moments when I need more of you than I should consume, but for the most part I have learned that you are a delicacy and that overindulging is not a positive aspect of the relationship that we share.

I don’t think that I will ever get sick of you. Nothing compares to the mouth-watering aroma that you release and your sugary taste. I always look forward to having chocolate cake on my birthday, pudding pie on Thanksgiving, hot chocolate during the cold wintery days, and all of the chocolate candy bars that you can think of on Halloween. Your taste is incredibly satisfying; I wouldn’t trade you for anything else in this world.

Love Always,

A Chocolate Lover

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
