One Little Misstep On The Stairs Has The Potential To Ruin Your Day

Apparently, I slipped on a step or missed one and fell down on the other bunch of stairs that gave me a bruise that looks like a sweet potato.


So one day, when going down the stairs, I was so clumsy and was paying no attention to each step I took. Apparently, I slipped on a step or missed one and fell down on the other bunch of stairs that gave me a bruise that looks like a sweet potato.

It really hurts. Many people should be more cautious when either going up or down the stairs. Due to this fall, I couldn't bear sitting down because the pain had hurt me so much. Then, when driving or eating my meals, the pain also had stung me. On that day, I could not have a good sitting position. I wasn't comfortable sleeping on my bed because of the pain. So for the one whole week, I have to use a soft pillow or something soft to sit on whatever seat I have. It was so uncomfortable. Just thinking about the pain and the memory of myself falling, I totally regretted of not being careful and I should have paid more attention.

Not only not being able to do the things I want, but I also couldn't help anyone. I felt so useless and felt so bad for my family when they were doing all the work while I sat and waited for them. My twin sister and my mother has to drive me to places and helped prepare the food and clean up for me. It was a terrible feeling of seeing everyone such as my family, worked so hard for me to get healed.

One good thing is that the stairs that I fell on were the texture of a carpet. If

it was wooden, the pain would have been worse.

It takes a while to heal. So the most important thing to learn, especially for me, is to be careful when going on or coming down the stairs or else you will carry this burdensome, sweet potato-like bruise.

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.

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.
