Three Things You Shouldn’t Do After Break-Ups

Life is unpredictable. There are lots of times when things don’t work out as we expected and it is ok. It’s of course hard to leave someone at first, especially for those very serious relationships. But we will finally get there. Take a deep breath and move on, through it sometimes takes time. Here are three things that I would recommend people not to do after break-ups:

  1. Blame on yourself

There’s no right or wrong in a relationship because it’s always a two-side thing. In addition to that, relationships are about emotion and feelings, it’s not about rationality. That’s why we can’t control our emotion all the time. But what we can do is to learn from the past and never make the same mistake again.

2. Say something bad about your ex

Relationships end with different reasons and I know some of us unfortunately had bad experiences. It’s hard not to complain or say something bad about your ex in this case. But I still recommend to avoid doing this. There’s always happiness and love in a relationship. Remember these sweet moments can make you feel better, trust me, in longer-term. Also, when a guy/girl doesn’t work for you, it doesn’t mean he/she isn’t a good person.

3. Contact your ex and say weird things

I understand it’s hard to cut off the connection with someone that you loved. It’s ok to be friends after break-ups. But just be clear for the boundary that you guys no more have that intimate relationship. And he/she is not responsible for your new life. Try to move on by distracting yourself on other equally important relationships such as families and friends.

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.

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.

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.
