Moving Forward Isn't Always Easy

It is not about the speed, but the effort put forward.

Moving Forward Isn't Always Easy

Sometimes, life can be quite hard, physically and emotionally, when it comes to moving forward. After all, life is full of challenges that can either rise us up for the better or bring us down, but by persevering through such obstacles, each of us creates a true distinct nature to ourselves.

It is this specific nature that grows in confidence with each opinion formulated and decisions made. It can be challenging at times to put aside pessimistic thoughts that will set us back, but by doing so, everything becomes more clear.

So, how does dreaming connect to this rant of mine? Essentially, I am trying to convey the importance of overcoming obstacles that often play a part of everyone's day to day life. However, I think it is important to acknowledge that everyone at some point dreams of a more perfect life. A lot of people allow their dreams to go incognito when they hit a roadblock without confronting their imagination at face-value.

To be more clear, it is simple to take the easy way out of a situation, but you would just be hurting yourself! Putting more time and effort to achieve your dreams will lead the outcome to be more significant, and overall meaningful.

Therefore, do not give up on your quest to achieve your aspirations! Meet the roadblock, and find a way to go around it rather than quitting. Take any step possible to keep progressing forward; know that the speed is not important but the amount of effort contributed is.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

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.

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.
