Yeah I know, the last time you journaled was probably Mrs.McCarthy's third grade class. However, journaling can open your eyes to ideas realizations and aspirations. Keeping a journal to scribble down notes, or even just dreams can help you determine what you really want in life. Here are a couple of inspirational prompts.

1. Monday: Write five things you truly enjoy about yourself.

This social media driven society has taught us to compare ourselves to others. This prompt reminds us to step back and really appreciate what draws others to us.

2. Tuesday: If I had no fear today, what would I do?

Sometimes we stop ourselves from happiness because we're scared. This prompt lets us realize that some of our goals are very attainable, we just have to put ourselves out there.

3. Wednesday: What can I do to nurture my mind, body and soul?

This prompt pushes us to reflect on how kind we are to ourselves. It is important to take care for yourself.

4. Thursday: What is one thing you learned this week? 

Usually, we walk through life worrying about our future that we don't stop to recognize the little things.

5. Friday: What is the dominant emotion in your life right now?

This prompt is good when you're feeling down. It challenges you to look introspectively so you may deal with your emotions in a healthy way.

6. Saturday: Who made you feel good this week?

Yes, journaling is an independent task but you can still appreciate your friends while doing it.

7. Sunday: Dear ___, this has been weighing me down....

This prompt will let you release steam and feelings you have been too scared to say. Even if you never give this letter to that person, it's a good start to try to let it.

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.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
