Get A Hotel Room

Or Any Other Extravagant Thing You Need To Reset

Get A Hotel Room

Get a hotel room. One with a king bed and a jacuzzi tub. Splurge for the late check out time. Sometimes all it takes to reset is a nap. Other times it's room 212 at the Grandstay. Run yourself a bath. Turn on your favorite music. Use the entire bottle of stress relief bubble bath. Close your eyes and think about nothing. Breathe. You're still thinking about work, school or the things bothering you. So turn the music up. Sink a little lower into the water. Be present in the nothingness of this moment. Breathe. Drain the tub, dry off and crawl into that beautiful king size bed. Cover yourself in that lavender lotion from head to toe. Nothing beats the smell of those lovely fresh white sheets or how your silky soft skin pairs so perfectly with them. The way your head seeps deep into those pillows makes you forget about everything outside of these walls. Breathe. Turn on the TV that's hanging on the wall. Something funny. Romance movies make you feel lonely. Action movies make you want to be doing more. Comedy makes you laugh, you need to laugh. Breathe. Fall asleep to your favorite song and dream the sweetest dreams. No nightmares tonight. Breathe. When you wake up run another bubble bath. With the sunshine peaking through the windows, enjoy this bath just as much as the one last night. Breathe. When you check out smile at the front desk employee.

Smile the entire day today. Smile because you feel refreshed. Smile because for the last twelve hours your mind was clear. Smile because you can and you have a gorgeous smile. There is no instruction manual for life. Sometimes you have prayed all the prayers you can pray. You have tried all those things that are supposed to make you feel better. Sometimes you need to get a hotel room. Reset. And just breathe.

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.

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.
