I love you...

I know life has not always been easy for us. I know we do not always get along. I know I mess up, a lot. I know we fight; we don't talk sometimes; we scream; we hang up the phone on each other. But, the biggest thing I know is that I love you, and I always will.

So, I am writing this for the both of you. To show you how much you mean to me. And I know it is still not enough. There are no words great enough to express my thankfulness and love for you two. But, here is my attempt to put it into words:

Thank you for always being someone I can call when I need to talk

Whether I just need to cry or just want to tell you about my day, I know you two are just a call away.

Thank you for making my childhood fun

From trying to go camping once a month, family games and meals, and tons of church activities, there was always an adventure awaiting. I had such an amazing childhood and I so thankful I got to spend it with you two.

Thank you for supporting my crazy ideas

From starting up my own charity foundation in 8th grade to all of the other crafts I did, there were a ton of crazy ideas growing up... and don't worry I still have them! Although you may have been a little skeptical at first (only because you didn't want to see me get hurt) you both always gave your full support. It means the world to me!

Thank you for teaching me

I will admit I still am scared to jump a car, but at least I know how to! Thank you for teaching me all of the necessary tools for life and for still doing it for me when I am too scared.

Thank you for accepting me for who I am

I know it is not always easy... and sometimes it may be what causes out fights... but I know you will both drop everything for me. You are both always there for me whenever I need you. You love me, and you are proud of me for who I am and who I will become.

Thank you for being role models

You both have always been two people I looked up to, whether you knew it or not. So frequently I see the good things you both do to help others (at church, work, etc.) and I realize I want to be just like you.

Thank you for giving me life

Not only legit "giving me life", but I mean thank you for inspiring me, giving me ideas, giving me the power and strength to go on. Like I said at the beginning, life has not always been the easiest for us. But, you two have given me the strength to live my life and help others with it.

Thank you for loving me unconditionally

This one can go without an explanation. But, there is just one final thing:

I love you.

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.
