A Letter To My Future Self

Hi, I hope you're doing great.

A Letter To My Future Self

I am writing this letter to remind you of the little, yet important things you love to do. Waking up first thing in the morning and letting the pups out, drinking iced coffee and laughing with your best friends, and going out on little walks around the block. Are you still doing these things? Are you taking care of yourself? Most importantly, are you happy? I know, that's a tough question but are you?

Happiness to me now is the feeling you get when you are standing on the top of a rock looking at the beautiful world God gave us. How do you feel about that and what is your definition now?

I hope that you find time to appreciate those little things, I hope that you are pushing yourself to get where you want to be, and I hope that you never stop. Have you? Please, never stop pursuing happiness. Push yourself to be the best you can be and then more.

What lessons have you learned? I wouldn't be surprised if the many years of schooling didn't prepare you for what life is actually like. This year alone I've learned to expect the unexpected (thanks covid). By the way, is the pandemic over? Who's President? Here's a good one, are you President? I know it'd have to be 20 years in the future for that to happen, but are you on the right track?

For real, how hard are you working and pushing? I hope that you never lost that determination and drive.

Final question, do you love yourself and are you as confident as you manifested to be? It gets easier right?

I'll leave you with this piece of advice, never stop learning, never stop caring, never stop working, never stop loving, and lastly, never stop being you.

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.

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.
