To the girl who isn't enough

To the girl who is never enough,

Let me start this out by saying a cliché, you are enough. No matter what anyone has done or told you, you will always be enough. God did not create us to be perfect. He created us to all be different yet equal.

You will always be enough to the ones who truly love and care for you. This includes your parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and significant other. To these people, you are enough. You’re not the perfect daughter, sister, friend, or girlfriend. But honestly, who gives a damn if you’re trying your hardest and being true to yourself?

Onto how we look and how others see us. So what if you're not the perfect size two with the right assets. The way we look shouldn't be something we judge our self worth on. This "perfect" image that society has created for us is all wrong, because what might look beautiful and "perfect" to one person isn't what looks beautiful and "perfect" to another person. Being true to yourself and doing what makes you happy and healthy is what makes you enough.

You will always be enough for God and his love. There is nothing absolutely nothing that can take God’s love away from you. Pick up your bible, say a prayer, rejoice in this word that you are good enough. 1 Peter 2:9 says, “But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God's very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.” Let this verse lead you to know that you are a child of the King of kings and His to use to show the world His love. I cannot think of a more worthy and useful person in this world.

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.

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.
