It Takes Two To Tango

Ladies and gentlemen, I know we all want that perfect companion. It is probably one of the only emotions everyone can truly relate to. We have grown up on the want of finding that someone who fits all of our seams and expectations. In the search of your picture-perfect man or woman, remember to search and grow in yourself. If you are not becoming the woman or man you want to become, you will not know what kind of companion to attract or devote your life to.

Women:

Often we find ourselves asking questions revolving around us. Am I pretty enough? Will I be successful in the future? Why can’t I find the man of my dreams? We look at another woman and think she has it all, the body, the hair, the perfect man, a great job, and etc. In reality, though, every woman struggles. Now your struggles may be different, but that doesn’t mean you can’t relate in some form or fashion. As women, we should understand that NO woman is higher or lower than the other. Believe in yourself. I’m not saying you won’t have doubts, but overcome those doubts with faith and God. Establish yourself in a firm and strong foundation. Once you see your worth and value the options will begin to weed themselves out. Become a Woman of God and you will attract a man of God. That boy you longed for in the past will become a glimpse of what use to be. You’ll begin to understand why guys from previous relations never worked for YOU. Lastly, you’ll know what kind of morals and values the man you invest in will hold.

Men:

It is hard to stay spiritually, mentally and physically strong in today’s society. The temptations of the world are growing stronger and stronger. Instead of looking for beauty we long for seductiveness, we rather lust over someone than adore someone, and we rather play around with our hearts then invest in their seams. Men, please know that modesty, loyalty, and kindhearted woman do still exist. When beginning to know a woman look for “wife material,” characteristics. Does she hold herself to a high standard? Is she kind to everyone? Does she have a selfless heart? Lastly, in order to find the woman worthy of marriage, you must be worthy enough to her. In order to attract a woman of God, you must be a man of God, leading her in faith and in life at all times.

Men and women:

Remember when you are dating, in a relationship, or marriage, it takes equal effort. Some individuals say the person who cares the least holds the most control. Please don’t live your relationship or dating life through this perspective. Find someone who will cherish, care, invest, be loyal, honest, love, and selfless for YOU. Men and women deserve someone’s full heart. Relationships are not a 60/40 they are a 50/50. Have high standards and a pure heart.

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.

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.
