It Is Okay To Not Be Perfect

Try your best and think positive!

It Is Okay To Not Be Perfect

In my day-to-day life, I have noticed countless times of people (including myself) who struggle with doing something incorrectly or not doing it as well as others want us to.

And let me tell you the reality of the situation: being perfect does not exist.

You can try and try and try but there is no guarantee it will be perfect. And it should not be.

While I am not a perfectionist, I try my best. That is all people should expect from themselves or others.

The moment someone expects perfection is the moment people start to stress over tiny details and see errors that may not actually be there. It is almost like that feeling of looking at a word long enough that it no longer looks like a word.

People should definitely strive for the greatest they can be but not at the expense of their health or well-being.

I have been lucky with the professors I have had because most of them understood that students make mistakes. Others, unfortunately, did not have the same experience.

As a journalist, I know I am entering a very competitive career. I know mistakes are not allowed and are looked down upon (from what I have been told) but I will not let that tear me down. I am going to try my best and try to learn more.

That is what everyone should always be actively doing. People should constantly try to learn new aspects about the things they deal with daily whether it be for work or just for their everyday lives. Learning new things is always a highlight.

Do not let people tell you that you are not good enough. Do not let people tell you that your best is not your best (I have experienced that as well). Just do what you love and keep practicing.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.
