This Year Will Be The Year

It's that time again... Back to school. As the new semester approaches and the start day nears I'm already stressed out. Like any other college student I already feel overwhelmed. I haven't meet teachers yet or met any classmates and I'm already having anxiety. Lecture halls haven't began, homework hasn't been assigned and tests haven't been scheduled and I already get a churning feeling in my stomach. However this semester is going to be different. This time I'll never be in class alone, I'll always have someone to help calm my test anxiety and soothe my nerves when huge assignments are assigned. My daughter will be growing inside me while I try to grow my knowledge to provide her with a brighter life. I've always worked hard for my own goals, my greater good, my future, but now I want to make everyone proud. My parents, siblings, nieces, nephews, my boyfriend and my daughter. At the end don the year I want to walk across that stage knowing I've held nothing back and knowing I gave all my effort on every assignment, scored as high as I could on every test and not only made the grade but also made an impact on the present as well as the future. This year will be a big year, my year, OUR year. So today I promise myself, my family, friends, teachers, my daughter, as well as everyone reading this, I'm gonna do it 100% .

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.

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.
