Poetry on Odyssey: Hidden Issues

Now, I truly understand the saying when they say friends can break your heart too.

I do this thing of not letting anyone get close to me. Maybe it’s the fear that eventually you will walk out my life with a piece of me. A piece of myself that I no longer have to offer.

I'm tired of giving more than I actually receive. It’s the main cause of resentment towards others.

All my insecurities will go along with you while you talk with someone else. While you laugh with someone else. While you stay up late talking about anything and everything. The same things we used to do together.

If my name ever comes up in conversation, make sure when you do mention me, you tell them how you killed my soul. There are always two sides to every story.

I'm a strong believer in the thought that everyone that comes into your life for a reason whether it’s for a blessing or a lesson.

They say that time heals all wounds but I don’t think that it’s true. My heart beats as if it’s bleeding. It still hurts when I think about you. Now, I truly understand the saying when they say friends can break your heart too.

It’s always the ones who are closest to you, that seems to let you down. Maybe it’s the fact that you held them higher standard than everyone else.

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.

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.
