Poetry On Odyssey: Two Broken People

Two people wanting to find love again.

We’re just two broken people trying to love again.

It’s hard at times.

When we’re happy, we smile like we’ve never been hurt. We laugh until we've cried real tears.

Trauma doesn't define you.

It only shapes you into the human being you are constantly evolving to become. Although our trauma wasn’t similar, we aren’t worlds apart. We can grow through the experiences we went through, together. I want to build you back up, to the man I know you can be. It’s a wonderful thing when someone is willing to help you love yourself instead of being all about them.

We’re just two broken people.

When we fight, all the personal issues we thought we’ve worked through starts to reveal itself. Our insecurities that were hidden, abruptly rise to the surface. Why does it always end up with someone getting their heart broken?

Maybe it’s because someone always manages to say the wrong thing that sparks more frustration. However, the yelling and shouting eventually immerse into your chest because you pull me into your chest. No matter how hard I squirm in your arms, you hold me tighter. Your rapid heartbeat comes at a normal pace as I shut my eyes. Because I know in that particular moment everything was going to be alright.

Sometimes I hate how well you know me. In some ways, you know me better than I know myself. You know what makes me laugh and you can tell when I'm upset by just the variation of tone when I speak. I can’t help to think that what if you wake up one morning, and you decide that you don’t want to do whatever "this" is anymore? All the conversations, secrets and fears that were exchanged will remain with you, along with a little part of myself.

When the trust is gone, everything else is pointless. It’s clear from the start, a relationship of any kind whether it be a friendship or romantically involved, the foundation was weak from the beginning. In the back of your mind, there will always be a doubt.

But in the end, we know that we’re all in.

Because when we love, we love hard.

We also share the understanding that we’re in this for the long run. Giving up or “Taking a break,” is off the table. If we’re upset, we give each other space but that doesn’t change a damn thing. You’re the missing puzzle piece I’ve been trying to find.

We are just two people, not letting our bad experiences define us.We are like two peas in a pod, We're always here for each other against all odds.

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.
