Don't Give Up On Someone Because They Have Already Kids

The most loving people are children, whether they are yours or not.

Don't Give Up On Someone Because They Have Already Kids

Sometimes we see ourselves planning out the perfect life and somethings just don't go to that plan and it is okay. "I don't want to be with anyone who has kids." is something I constantly hear day to day. Honestly being with someone who has kids can be one of the greatest blessings you have ever had.

When loving someone with kids you find yourself so absorbed in how the kids are that you totally forget they are not biologically yours. Being 19 years old I could not imagine myself having children of my own at this moment but many of my best friends are single mothers, single fathers and have some of the best children around. Many people I know have fallen in love with these men and women no matter what they carried with them. Those kids are true blessings.

I often hear girls in particular tell me "He is super cute but he has a kid.. NEXT" and to me that is straight up judging someone before you get to know them. Those kids could be the saving grace to you or your potential spouse.

When I asked those who are step parents to kids they explain it in such a sense that unless it was happening to you, you honestly would not understand. One of my family members explained it like "You honestly are just as nervous the first time meeting them as they are meeting you but if you open your mind and heart they will fill in any holes you had." That to me is love.

Next time you are searching for a potential partner, do not give up on them because they have kids. Everyone needs love.

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.
