Dear Future (As In Like 4 Months From Now) Me,

This article is inspired by that little class activity you were forced to do in school, that really annoying assignment where you had to write a letter to your future self:

Dear Future (As In Like 4 Months From Now) Me,

As semester after semester goes by, I saw myself changing before my eyes. Some of these changes were smaller than others, but they were changes none the less. Freshman year was by far the most eye opening and dramatic, while last fall was a bit more simple. While I struggled for that first year, I saw huge improvements as the fall semester went on and I'm hoping that those improvements continue into the spring. There were (and probably always will be) ups and downs, but I know that you'll probably have overcome them in ways only you know how. I'm looking forward to seeing how certain relationships/friendships progress as you meet new people and spend more or less time with others. I'm hopeful that you will continue to boost our GPA, finally getting that 4.0 we've always dreamed of. I'm excited to think about the different places you could possibly go, the things you could see and experiences as I'm sure they are far more than I could ever imagine in this moment.

Unfortunately, I could never predict the future and am unsure of what this semester has in store for us. But, I do know that absolutely one thing is for sure: whatever happens is meant to happen. Things happen for a reason and while we might not appreciate the struggling in the moment, those obstacles are meant to teach us valuable lessons and help us grow as a person.

These may seem like simple things, but I know that they mean a lot to us. So, future me, I hope that you are able to accomplish things that I can only dream of doing; I know that you will go far in such a short amount of time and I look forward to seeing the person I have become. I don't know what the future (as in like 4 months from now) will bring, but I hope you are as excited as I am to see what adventures they hold <3

With love,

Arielle :)

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
