I don't even know where to start because saying I am proud of you would be an understatement. I have seen you overcoming so much and now I am asking where do you find your strength?

After I was born, you decided to continue with your schooling and for that (chapo ba). Then, you came to the U.S, you were sick, there were all types of difficulties but you decided to go to school because you believed in education.

Not only did you become a chef (she was already one in Haiti), but you went back and studied nutrition and dietary because that's your passion (back to back graduation). I love how you are taking care of your body and teaching us more about nutrition and telling us this was from classes you were in. I love to see your class projects. Readers look at some of her work

As your daughter, I feel so overjoyed to see you accomplishing all these things while you have a family and so many other responsibilities. You have worked tirelessly to be where you are today. If I never told you this before, I realized that I look up to you more than I imagined.

You are the one who makes me believe in education like I do. When someone has a mother who no matter what happen in life still find the way to go school, how can you not go to school yourself. Mommy, seeing you accomplishing all you do is one of the things that keeps me going. I am always like, if you can have two jobs, a family, BILLS and still go to school and do well then what's my excuse.

So, readers yes I have a "chef mom." You know what I love the most about when she was going to school? The projects, because I would be doing the tasting even if I didn't know what I was tasting for. I was always like it tastes good.

Manmie, YOU DID IT!!!!!!!

Once again CONGRATUALTIONS. We are all very proud of you!!!

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.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
