Natural Way of Shining Through

Be your best only when it comes naturally.

Natural Way of Shining Through
Huffington Post

Very few writers are given the recognition they deserve. Writing is not easy for many, but for a few, it is as easy as it is for water to flow. Our brain's thoughts just glide straight onto the paper using eloquent words and phrases, yet we only write to express. Perhaps we write to express the emotions we hold during a time period or we write to express a story our creative minds imagined. Either way, we have talent. This talent should not be regarded any less than any other talent there is. Doctors have the talent to heal with the knowledge they possess, while teachers have the ability to transfer the knowledge to each student they cross paths with. All the same, writers have the ability to put their unspoken thoughts into words on your screens or books.

People ask me, "What will you do with this writing talent?"

Sometimes I respond with, "I will write articles or write my own novels. Or maybe even put it into my business major and come up with some use."

What I should be saying is I will do whatever my talent allows me to do. Talent is such that with an exploration of your skills, you will never be able to show it to the world. Don't test your limits, make sure you have no limits. Like most things, you have to nurture your talents, make them feel uncomfortable enough to adapt to the changes around them, to expect the unexpected, to believe in the unseen. Knowledge only comes to those who seek it, and with knowledge comes the ability to perform a task. Talent is no use until it is backed by knowledge.

So to all my fellow creative minds out there: do not stop seeking out the knowledge of everything around you because you never know where it could lead you. Only you will understand why knowledge helps so many people actually see and understand the world as it is. Even a blind man can be an artist if his mind knows no boundaries.

Do not let others stop you from continuing your passion; they do not determine your future, only you do. So let them talk and try to persuade you otherwise, but you just hold your ground and invest in the talents you hold, because no one can do them better than you can. Each doctor is different from the other. Each teacher has a different teaching style than the last. A writer has their own writing style while an architect demonstrates his or her designs separate from the others. Our world is at its best only when we shine through our bests.

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.
