Poetry On Odyssey: The Woman Once Made Of Gold

Someone so beautiful should be observed far away.

A woman’s heart which was once made of gold was robbed by a man.

A man who knew she was pure.

Her hair never unkempt and her body untouched.

She was an angel.

So why, why would he try to take away her halo? It wasn’t his intention to damage her, in fact, it was the quite opposite.

He loved her.

But despite his vigilant attempts to damage her, he did. Maybe it was the fact that he loved her too much. He always kissed her before she went to work in the morning. He awaited her call every day at five to hear that she’s on her way home. He kissed her on the cheek as she arrived through the front door. He kissed her before she went to bed because he couldn’t bear the thought of not doing so.

The first couple of months and even the first few years is known as the honeymoon stage. But it didn't take long until she began to notice that the things she once found cute are now highly impulsive. She couldn’t leave the house without letting him know first.She couldn’t have friends. So she didn’t have a social life.

That’s not good for a woman. That’s not good for anyone.

The woman whose smile used to light up the room was no longer present. It didn’t exist.That’s the sad part of it all. How can something so lovely become so broken? How could he, someone who loved her beyond the superficial things be so belligerent?

If only he could understand that he didn’t need to know where she was every second of the day. If only he could have seen what his actions were doing in the long run. Worry brings fear and fear is crippling. The reason why most people become depressed is because they’re surrounded by depression. Meaning that hanging around someone who only brings them down will reinforce the pain that you are feeling. It took everything within her to get up and leave the man she once fell in love with. It was both mentally and physically draining. But there’s a slight feeling of relief once she walks away from that toxic relationship.

She is a woman, who is strong. She is a woman who is strong enough to leave a situation that is doing her more harm than good.

He never did grasp why the woman he loved left him. He couldn’t understand that what they had wasn’t love.He didn’t know that he was controlling and demanding.

And that’s too bad for her. She has to spend her time to rebuild the woman she once was before he came into her life. But how can she do that? No matter how long the healing process may be, she may not be the same woman she was.

That woman though, who was once made of gold, will always be beautiful. You’ll just have to admire her from a distance now.

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.

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.
