What is love?

Love Lost-One Left Standing
By DJ Cooper
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away." 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8, NIV

Unfortunately, this is not always how it goes...

A question posed by one so sad that it prompted this poem for the heartbroken.

How it feels… to the one left standing with the question.

What happened?

I think about you every day
Wonder if you think of me.
Even though you're so far away
gives me joy for all to see.

I know our lives they differ much,
yet they feel indeed the same.
In every day I crave your touch,
Still, I fear it's just a game.

The players in this wheel roulette
cannot see the frail in me.
all the cards on the table bet
Heartache stands, my fate shall be.

so when you deal with a heart's song
remember how it can ache.
a game will soon make that love gone,
in real life, it's what's at stake.

Our paths are cast in times of love,
to walk through fire, pain, and fear.
To find the one who'll rise above
brings our hearts a joyful tear.

Remember this my soul's good friend,
don't play games, there's too much cost
a heart in pain soon will mend,
but by then it's you who's lost.

for many see what you have done,
a heart's broken in the end.
So you say it was all in fun,
then don't fret what karma sends.

so in these words, a lesson looms,
remember when you break trust.
A love that may have let you bloom,
will now be made of only rust.

Do not be sad for I will heal,
it is you who is so cold.
And while today you cannot feel,
What you lost? Worth more than gold.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
