Time goes by so fast, so enjoy every second of it

Thinking About The Past And Appreciating The Present

It's kinda weird to think that I'll be graduating this year and that high school is almost over for me. It goes by ridiculously fast. I feel like it was just a freshman yesterday and now suddenly I'm about to start my second semester of my senior year.

It really hit home today when I had my last marching band practice. Even though it was saddening to think that it's almost over, I used that as more of an inspiration. I decided that I'm going to have fun and enjoy what's left of my senior year.

I also just happened to write a poem for my AP English class about thinking about the past and moving on so I figured I would share it as well. Have a great week everyone :)

Reminiscing

Memories of the past

How I wish it wasn’t over

It all went by so fast

I think I need some closure

Old friends fade away

Old memories disappear

Oh how I wish they would stay

That they would be right here

But that’s not how it goes

Time keeps going

This chapter has come to a close

As we all keep growing

But never forget

What made you who you are

You owe them all a debt

For making you into such a star

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.

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.
