Summer of '19

I guess, it was worth writing a song for!

Summer of '19

I am just glad to be back, writing after a long time finally! The past few months have been a real roller coaster. With all the ups and downs in such a short time, the ride was a bumpy one! But through it all, there are a few things I learnt which are life lessons!

If they give you a bad vibe, trust your instincts!


Because almost 10 out of 10 times..YOU ARE CORRECT!!

I have learnt, no matter how new you are to a situation, always trust your instincts and as it turns out, most of the times others might be feeling the same. It could be about a person, situation or an incident in general.

What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger


And killing doesn't even need a sharp tool, your own thoughts are sometimes enough to choke you. But if you survive that, I think the battle is won.

If you ask enough times, you'll mostly get what you are chasing


Be it a discount, class this semester or a salary hike, doesn't hurt to ask.

Always value those who care for you even in your absence

It is easy to be sweet to people on their face but very few take the pains to continue caring for you when you are gone. Never leave these gems, they are your true friends!

People can listen to problems for you, but only you can solve them


I just felt like the past few months were the longest cribbing session I've had. But through it, I ultimately had to figure a way to make peace with things and find out what worked for me and kept me going, although I could use some cheering up from my friends.

Humans are social


It might sound funny but I've realized that both the parts of this sentence are equally true!! and you'll need a a company to share your happiness and sorrow equally and make sure to find a human!

It's okay to quit sometimes


You don't need to force things on yourself that you don't like. You deserve a break or to walkout from a wrong choice.

People who mock you are actually the most insecure ones from inside


Something someone once told me and it is so true!

It is worth the wait

Whatever it is that you are looking for, a boyfriend or a job or a university admit...hang in there. Because the best thing take time!

Trust the timing


Just like the previous timing, in times of impatience, just trust the timing of the universe (trust me this sounded cooler in my head..haha). But really sometimes, things do work out perfectly if we give them the time to

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.

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. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
