Sunday Is My Favorite Day Of The Week

"I choose to spend my Sunday's resting, preparing for the next week, and focusing my mind on the things that matter the most to me personally."

Sunday Is My Favorite Day Of The Week

For as long as I can remember, Sunday has been my favorite day of the week. There is something really beautiful about Sunday's, especially Sunday mornings. It's a day to reset and recenter yourself. It's a day to spend time with the people you love, and for me, it offers me the perfect time to focus on my faith. I choose to spend my Sunday's resting, preparing for the next week, and focusing my mind on the things that matter the most to me personally.

Unlike the rest of my week, I find that Sunday is the only day that is not incredibly busy and fast-paced. Oftentimes, I find myself struggling to keep up with the pace of the clock during the school week. Time seems to fly by me as I try to accomplish everything I need to do. Sunday's never feel busy or fast-paced. Time seems to slow down and let me catch up on Sunday's. I think that it is super important to enjoy the present moment, rather than always focusing on what's coming next. It can be hard to be present during hectic school or work days. That's why I cherish the slow-paced and restful nature of Sunday's.

Every Sunday, I make sure to spend time with the people I love the most. I spent this past Sunday with one of my best friends that I've known since middle school. We planned to study at one of our favorite local coffee shops, and instead, ended up walking around a farmer's market. I've always loved the spontaneous nature of Sunday's. It's a day to make plans, but then be okay if those plans take a different route. I find that this kind of spontaneity is difficult to have throughout busy school weeks.

I view Sunday's like the perfect day to catch up on what's happening in the lives of my friends and family members. I often dedicate a portion of my Sunday to calling the loved ones that don't live near me. It's the perfect way for me to stay connected to the people who matter the most to me. Family and friends are truly everything to me. That's why I always make time to stay caught up on what's happening in their lives.

I also love Sunday's because they give me the opportunity to spend time doing the things I love. Sometimes this means practicing the guitar or writing articles at a coffee shop. Whatever it may be, I always make sure to spend time doing something that brings me happiness.

I think that Sunday's often go unnoticed. Some people spend their Sunday dreading about the start of their work week. I think that spending your Sunday in such a manner makes it difficult to maintain a positive mindset for the week to come. I recommend viewing Sunday's not as the end of the weekend, but as an opportunity to rest, reflect, and cultivate a positive mindset.

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.

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.
