It's Time To Start Romanticizing Your Life

Sometimes you have to make your life a cliche moment.

It's Time To Start Romanticizing Your Life

As I sit here driving through the Utah mountains listening to Neon Moon by Kacey Musgraves, the first thought in my mind is to romanticize your life.

What does that mean truly? Well, for every person it can vary, but in the heart of it, it means to make your life seem better or to try to make it better. For example, picturing your life out of a movie or out of a fairy tale.

How can you fully do this though? In my opinion, it may be a multitude of different things, from creating goals for yourself, stepping outside the box, or doing things to make you feel better.

Now that the bolts are turning in my head and I start to romanticize my life, I start to picture different iconic scenes from movies. Perhaps the tunnel scene from Perks of Being A Wallflower and blasting music while simply enjoying the company of your best friends. It is a total cliche moment, but every time this happens, you feel alive and appreciate these times. Especially when you get to your freshman year of college and you realize you do not have a car, you miss those moments so much, therefore, cherish them while you can.

When you start to romanticize your life, you appreciate the simple moments slightly more. You indulge in the small things, just like the large, thus making the most of your life. For example, not chowing down on your next meal or trying to hurry up life, stop and enjoy every moment because you may regret not doing so.

Also, start to explore yourself and life in general. Furthermore, explore your horizons and try new things, because you never know what each moment or new thing has to offer. Life is full of surprises and you can never truly experience them if you do not step out of your comfort zone.

Once I start to fully romanticize my life, I hope to capture these pure moments on camera. Some part of indulging in your surroundings can be to film them to replay them, later on, to feel the same emotions during the past and cherish the moments forever.

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.
