To High School Seniors With Just A Few Months Left

Dear Class of 2017,

Congrats on finishing half way through your senior year! You are almost there to the finish line and can't wait till June to walk across the stage. You may be dreading right now for that moment to come or may be you feel scared to know what happens in your future.

After all, it is March now where admission officers are currently reading over your application. You have a sense of fear or rejection if you do not get picked to your first school or you are stressed that you may need to apply to additional scholarships to go to college. ALL OF THESE EMOTIONS YOU ARE FEELING RIGHT NOW, ARE PERFECTLY FINE. Right now it's just the daunting wait time period.

However for those who may have heard back already and got accepted, I applaud you! There is nothing better than seeing a big envelope saying "CONGRATULATIONS" written across the packet.

Meanwhile, as for those who have had the unfortunate circumstance to see the REJECTION LETTER, I feel your pain. I personally have been on both sides of the spectrum and the first reaction when you feel rejected is to give the middle finger at the college who didn't accept you or cry. My best advice is to let out all of your emotions you are feeling and march on forward to prove to that college THAT THEY WERE WRONG. After all everything happens for a reason, and if that means you have to start from the ground up, well get back to the grind my friend.

Aside from the stressful academic point of view on senior year, you also may experience nostalgic moments as you walk through the hallways. You may ask yourself a couple of these questions, " Wait, am I no longer going to wear the #29 jersey for basketball anymore? If I am, then who is going to wear it, when I am no longer there? Will this will be my last time performing on stage in front of an audience? Will I still talk to the same friends I have now after a year later? Wait.. I'm going to graduate and might be going to college??!!"

You may miss those moments of high school, however I am sure you will not miss the school cafeteria food, having to wake up early, or see some staff/people you dislike. After all it is the "high school experience" and some may have had more/less s***** experiences than others. THAT'S OKAY.. IF YOU DIDN'T LIKE HIGH SCHOOL, LIFE AFTER HIGH SCHOOL IS A NEW BEGINNING (clique as it seems).

However, as a freshmen in my spring semester at Umass Amherst, I do reminisce some moments during my senior year. Therefore, senior class of 2017 enjoy the last thrill of the ride whether it be prom, senior activities, or whatever makes you happy. Make some history during your senior year whether it be big or small, it's your life, your decisions. Wish you well! :)

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.
