To My Little Lineage

So I was lucky enough to ask one last member to my sorority line which goes me to thinking. I am beyond blessed that I met the four other women that make up my little line.

I realize that although I, like my big, are leaving the lineage to the young ones, there are a couple of things I wanted to say before I graduated.

Big, you know I love you beyond words. You truly became the big sister I never had growing up and that is something I will cherish for the rest of my life. You have given me so much love and taught me so many lessons that I needed to learn during college. Although I didn't really know you before reveal, I am so glad I met you when I did.

Thank you for supporting me from halfway across the country.

Lex, my little. I knew from day one that you were meant to be my little. I cannot wait to watch you become the nurse that you aspire to be. Since day one of meeting you, it is the one thing you have always talked to me about. You have the ambition and drive to become an amazing nurse after you are done with school.

Thank you for loving me and going through this crazy journey of life during school with me.

Kyndra, my sweet grandchild. You have so much to look forward to as you continue your academic career. I see how excited you are to teach and change the mind's of young children as a teacher. You're someone full of spunk and courage to continue on when times get tough.

Thank you for inspiring me.

Ri, my great-grandchild. (WOW, I am OLD). Welcome to this little lineage. I am so excited that I even had the chance to meet you at the reveal. You have got many mentors in your corner now. Kyndra is an amazing woman who will guide you through this organization and school. She loves you so much and wants you to succeed in all you do. I am elated that I will be around while you are going to school here.

This family will always support each member in it.

Much love,

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.
