I want to let you in but I don’t know how.

How do you let someone in when you’ve been hurt by the one person you expected to be by your side forever? The trust, love, and efforts I made I can never get back. I gave you a piece of myself that I can never get back.

For a while, I was lost.

I had no idea who I was without him. I realized that by trying to keep him, I've lost myself in the process.

But somehow you gave me the reason to try to love again. You make me feel things I don’t want to feel. You make me smile and laugh like no other. It’s annoying but that’s one of the many qualities I adore about you.

The thing about love is that you always have to be willing to take a risk. There’s no way of telling if that person will end up breaking your heart. It’s always a gamble. But when you love someone, you're willing to do whatever it takes to make it work. The secret to a long-lasting relationship is building a firm foundation that's built on loyalty, trust, and honesty. If one of these three components aren’t visible, then you’re relationship never stood a chance, to begin with. In every relationship, there are its fair shares of highs and lows. It takes two string individuals, to stay during the low points because it's easier to leave when things get a little hard.

One day, we will be a family of four in a big white house just beside the oceanside. A wonderful view, indeed. Who would have ever thought that this would be possible?

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.

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.
