Spring Cleaning Is More Than Just A Quick Room Clean

Thank you spring cleaning for the thorough life cleaning.

Spring Cleaning Is More Than Just A Quick Room Clean
Jada Bruce

Spring brings more than just rain showers that water up and coming flowers. It brings a season of new opportunities and more days to grow.

Because of everything that spring has to offer, I think it is best to do some 'spring cleaning' in my life around this time every year. In some strange way, it is refreshing to just sit back and unpack and declutter everything. It feels good to just prepare myself for a season of sunshine and possibilities waiting to be created by me.

Every week leading up to spring, I mentally prepare for all the growing I am about to do. I try to plan out everything I want and claim everything that will be mine.

I guess the saying is really true: April showers definitely bring May flowers, and it also leaves you with a few things in between.

This spring, I told myself I am ready for all the flowers that are mine to bloom around me and be planted in nothing but success. I speak nothing but success over my life as I enter into a new season where I plan to be intentional with everything I do. Where I plan to get rid of or clean out everything that isn't for me or has nothing to contribute to everything I want to be.

While I still enjoy a fresh new design in my bedroom, I much rather prefer reading a new book or exploring a new place. The greatest thing to ever come out of my "spring cleaning" was recognizing that everything that is supposed to be mine will be. Reorganizing my priorities and what I want to accomplish in life really has eliminated a lot of stress out of my life and created space for everything coming my way.

Preparing for the next season is more than just a to-do list.

Spring cleaning is a dedication to a new season. In some ways, it's allowing the storms from last season to nurture and clear the paths of everything that still is coming my way.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
