To Those Also Searching For a Beating Heart

"If you have zest and enthusiasm you attract zest and enthusiasm. Life does give back in kind" -- Norman Vincent Peale.

To Those Also Searching For a Beating Heart

Passion is defined as an intense eagerness to do something. To act upon something. To accomplish something. To achieve the unachievable.

"A passionate belief in your business and personal objectives can make all the difference between success and failure. If you aren't proud of what you're doing, why should anybody else be?" - Richard Branson

When I meet someone new, I observe their zest for life. I want to see LIFE. I want to make friends with people who motivate and inspire me. Who better my own being. Who strive to benefit the world around them. Who see positivity where others may not. I want to feel their beating heart.

"Whatever you do, do with determination. You have one life to live; do your work with passion and give your best. Whether you want to be a chef, doctor, actor, or a mother, be passionate to get the best result." --Alia Bhatt

So, to those also searching for a beating heart:

Do what you love. Do what makes you smile. Do what makes you laugh. Do what makes your heart beat at the thought of accomplishing your goal.

Never stop pushing and fighting. Don't stop until you reach your goal, and, even then, continue to reach for more. Be headstrong and active.

Find someone who is just as passionate as you about something. It doesn't matter if it's about the same thing or varying subjects—you need enthusiasm.

"If you have zest and enthusiasm you attract zest and enthusiasm. Life does give back in kind" --Norman Vincent Peale.

Take a break now and then to appreciate your surroundings! The world and humanity are beautifully peaceful, inspirational, and tender.

Don't be afraid of failing. Mistakes happen. I'm currently learning this lesson myself. Although it's hard to accept it and not give up, we must endure the struggle, pain, and fear. In the end, it's all worth it.

In the end, I will never stop being enlightened by peers who are just as passionate about something as I am about humanity. When I see their heartbeat, I am reminded of my own living soul. This motivation keeps me moving, breathing, and acting. So, thank you to those beating hearts and, hopefully, the world will continue to fill with adrenalized beings everyday.

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.
