New Year's Conflict and Resolution

Do not talk yourself out of what you really want for your New Year's Resolution

New Year's Conflict and Resolution
Chad Green

Once again the time has come for everyone to start making and probably not keeping a New Year's Resolution. As 2016 comes to an end and 2017 rolls around, people are talking about what they can do to better themselves for the new set of 365 days. However, the only problem that has been set and stone since the beginning of time is the fact that not everyone can actually keep to their resolution, no matter what it may be. So, maybe it is time for a little encouragement for those who cannot seem to hold their 'new lively hood' together. Let's start with somethings one may think of doing but just won't:

1. Tell your crush how you really feel.

This thought has been burning in your head since God knows when. Have you've heard the saying 'the worst they can say is no?' Well it is true. Don't let that little word stop you from speaking the truth....which brings me to point number two.

2. Don't be afraid to assess yourself.

I know hiding in this comfy shell of yours is probably the best feeling in the world, but it may be time to throw the shell away. Be the person you really want to be not what others what you to be.

3. If you wanna lose weight, then do it!

No, I am not implying that it s easy because I know that isn't. However, if you're going to try, at least stick to it. Do not do it for a month and think that it's too hard and you cannot do it and just stop. Guess what? You can do it; you just have to believe in yourself.

4. Another difficult choice is making some serious life changes.

Most think of finding a new job or moving to a new city or state or hell maybe even a new country. Many find it scary because you never know if it is going to work out. But, I just say take a risk and just try! You'll never know if you don't and no one wants to think back in life and think about all of the what ifs.

So, there are a few examples are resolutions that people 'say' they're going to do every bit of it. In that statement, the conflict also resides. It is the fact that people are saying and not actually doing. This is a point in life where actions do speak louder than words. Don't let something dangle over your head like a dark cloud because you think that you will not accomplish anything in the end. Remember that it is not up to others to push your through it, it's up to yourself to have the strength to get the things done.

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.
