Why You Should Watch "13 Reasons Why"

I'm writing about 13 Reasons Why. I'm writing about this because this is an important topic to society. No just because of the suicide and everything but just in general. This show has reasons why you should watch it and it has reasons why you shouldn't watch it. Suicide is a heavy topic in my house because my family knows two people that had killed themselves at a very young age and one of them was really recent. 13 Reasons Why is promoting many things in different ways. People say we shouldn't watch it because it's promoting suicide. How is it promoting suicide? I don't see how it is. I see that it's promoting people to get help and talk to people about there issues so they don't hurt themselves or feel like there ever alone. If your going to watch this it would be better for people to watch it with there family so they can ASK questions and point things out as they go along. 13 Reasons Why is giving people a voice saying "Hey lets stop this because it is a serious problem in our society today." People shouldn't have to be afraid of talking about there feelings to there parents or anyone else if they need help. They shouldn't even feel like suicide is an option because in my book SUICIDE ISN'T AN OPTION. Everyone should be provided with the help they need and know the signs of someone who is depressed. People should know how to help the ones in need of help or a shoulder to cry on. 13 Reasons Why helped me learn that saying a nice thing can be the most meaningful thing to someone and it also showed me the signs of someone who is depressed and might need help. So I say watch 13 Reasons Why and get knowledge on this kind of stuff because you might be able to save someones life one day.

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.
