If you haven't heard of Bullet Journaling, you're honestly missing out on so much. I've always loved writing, organization, and notebooks. If you ask any of my friends, they'll tell you that I live by my planner. Recently, I stumbled across Bullet Journaling. While it looks like it takes a lot of time, it gives me more peace than I've ever had before. Honestly, it makes me a better person. Here's a sneak peek into why you should pick one up.

1. Unleash your creativity

I have no artistic ability. I can't even draw a circle. I am creative, however, when it comes to words, organization, and layout. If you're someone who doodles, you can use that creativity. If you like layouts like me, you can use that. Bullet Journaling lets you use your skills to your advantage.

2. Keep life simple

People use their Bullet Journals in different ways. I just started using my weekly spread, so I'm still trying to figure out what works best for me there, but it helps just to have my week planned out and in front of me. I feel like I can tackle the world and all of the tasks that week has in store for me.

3. Keep yourself organized

Two pages are devoted to what books I want to read. This way, I can keep track of them somewhere other than my phone. Bullet journaling keeps me from looking at my phone all the time, which inevitably leads to getting distracted along the way. People also organize things like their meal plan for the week, grocery lists, etc. so they're all in one place.

4. Keep yourself healthy

I have a page in my journal just for tracking how much sleep I get. This includes what time I get in bed, what time I wake up, and how many hours of sleep I actually get between those two things. I also track how much water I drink, and what I've done to improve myself in different areas of my life such as professionally, mentally, financially, and emotionally.

5. Keep yourself productive

There's a page just for things that can be accomplished in fifteen minutes. You know, that odd amount of time you always seem to have. This has given me things to do that never seem to get accomplished otherwise like clean out all the pictures on my phone that I don't need.

6. Keep yourself accountable

When you're keeping a mental to-do list, it's easy to forget things. It's easy to "forget" that you promised yourself that you were going to drink a certain amount of water every day or you were going to do sit ups. If it's right there in front of you on your monthly checklist, you're more likely to actually go through with doing it.

7. Keep your space clean

You know those chores that you always mean to get around to doing, but they just never really quite happen? There's a page for that too. While this is not my page, Pinterest is also full of spreads for tracking basically anything you could want to keep track of.

If you're not convinced right now, I don't know if anything I say will convince you. What I can tell you, though, is that Bullet Journalling is one of my favorite parts of the day, and it makes the rest of it much easier, too.

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.
