Thank you for taking care of me.

To The Sister Who Needs To Know She's Stronger Than All Of Us
Libba Muzi

My best friend by blood and by choice. Growing up only 11 months apart we had our share of fights and arguments and exchange of words that I cannot believe we could even think of at that age.

I have looked up to you all my life. In my eyes, your life was so perfect, always happy, with nothing weighing you down. Then I found out that all this time you have been dealing with depression and anxiety, for nearly all your life. The thing is... for me nothing was different. You're still my role model, the one person who is always there for me.

I want you to realize the heavy impact you have had on our family and all the people around you. No matter the situation you are always the first one I call, and I can always count on you to answer.

I have watched you become so much stronger over these past years, and through that, I have learned that there is nothing that is too big for you. The way you have handled the obstacles that have come your way has shown me how I want to handle difficulties in my life. You are not afraid to lean on the people around you and that is one of your most admirable traits.

I just wanted to thank you for taking care of me. When I never realized what you had going on, you continued to put others first and I never thanked you for that. Living four hours away is my least favorite thing, but I know you are only one phone call away.

Thank you for being you.

You're the strongest person I know, my best friend, my sister.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into.

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.
