An Open Letter To Every Broken Heart
Personal Image

To all the girls going through heartbreak-- I promise you that there will be a day where you are sitting in your bed at three in the morning and laugh about how sad you once were.

You will look at old pictures and videos and not feel a single ounce of sadness. You will smile at the fond memories you had made, but you will not yearn to make more like you once had.

I found myself scrolling through my notes on my iPhone the other day, out of pure boredom. I found one, from this past summer that read:

"There is a love of your life and a love for your life. The love of your life will be your weak point for a long time, but it won't work-- while the love for your life is the one that works in a complete way. There's one that is right, and one that you want to be right."

Relationships are a good way for us to grow into who we are as a person. Whether it be romantic or not, every person we form a bond with has an impact on our character in some way or another. When we think we are in love with someone, we can be blinded to the damage we are doing to ourselves in the name of a relationship that was nothing more than a life lesson.

But it's hard to realize that. It takes time. It involves pain and suffering, and many mascara stained pillow cases. We crave the love we see in magazines and movies. We strive to have a loving relationship like the ones written about in great novels, but we find ourselves holding on to those who are not fit for our story.

You will find someone who makes you smile from ear to ear when you think about them. You will find the person who's laugh makes you want to jump up and down on your bed in joy. You will find someone who's touch and scent consume you and make you feel at home and safe. Most importantly, you will feel this way not only in the first two months of your relationship but the longevity of it. You will find someone who is willing to give their all just to see you crack a smile. You will find someone who will stand on rooftops and shout their love for you.

You will find someone who makes you forget about all of the nights you spent crying over boys who did not know your worth. That person will fix all of the bruises and tears in your heart. You will look back, and be thankful that every other person you had been with until that point had led you to this feeling of pure bliss. You may not realize it now, but it is coming soon. You are strong, you are not alone, and there is a light at the end of this tunnel. I promise you.

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.

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.

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.
