To The One Who Said I'm Not The One

If you are wondering if this is about you, you are probably right.

To The One Who Said I'm Not The One
I wish I knew who did this amazing inspirational art, but thank you!

There's a handful of you currently walking around somewhere on this universe that has once in the past been an absolutely huge part of my life whether it was for a couple months or a couple years. When I was with you, I felt at my highest which was probably the lowest thing I could've ever felt. I let you define myself by the way you touched my hand and not by the way you touched me. I'm not here to say that I was always right and that I was a victim because you found ways to make me happy when there were days I never felt it to be possible Even if it was temporary and things never ended up the way I or we wanted them to at the time, you helped me learn more about myself. I got to experience things with you that I probably never experienced with another person. You helped me learn what I wanted out of a relationship. You made me realize that I would rather wait for a love that I can bring to Thanksgiving Dinner and eat off their plate as they roll their eyes in my direction while my family looks at us smiling knowing that I've finally found my person. That hasn't happened yet but I know in my heart it will with the right person.

So no, I'm not worth being something that you ponder on, I deserve a love that walks into my life and would fight anything just to cherish it. I don't deserve love that runs away out of fear of commitment. I don't deserve love that holds onto another. I don't deserve love that keeps me there because it knows I will provide for them without any expectations of it being returned. I don't deserve love that would walk a block if I walked a mile for them.

At the end of the day, you were not the one I was supposed to be with. As I continue to go on dates and meet new people, I still don't know who I'm supposed to be with. But every experience I've had with you and with the others before and/or after has guided me towards what I truly want and has helped me narrow these experiences to where I progress as a person and as a potential girlfriend.

I hope if you haven't already, that you find someone who makes you feel the way that I hope I do one day. I hope they bring you unconditional love and their arms around you make you feel both comfort and protection. I hope that their heart is pure and that their soul is filled with both spirit and wisdom.

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.

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.
