To the boy who never loved me

thanks to you, I love myself

To the boy who never loved me

I loved you. I loved you with every bit of my heart. I loved you more than words could've described.

So quickly, you convinced me you'd never hurt me. You convinced me that you'd never leave me. You convinced me that I was the only one you've ever wanted.

So quickly, I watched you go from making me your one and only, to making me feel like I didn't matter at all. I watched you turn everyone against me. I watched you slip from my fingers, but I was still convinced you loved me.

I gave you every bit of my heart. I gave you everything I had. I put in all my effort, just to watch you give up. Just to see you not give a damn.

Then you quickly showed me that I wasn't ever anything to you. You taught me not to fall so quick and so hard. Because right when I thought you were my forever, you gave up. You walked away.

But you know what? It's okay. Yea you hurt me. You broke my heart. But now I know a little more of what I want for myself.

Day by day I'm learning that you were just a lesson for me that needed to be learned.

I took notes as I watched it all fall apart. I cried so many nights because I didn't want to lose you.

The sweet words you once said to me, turned into the most hurtful. The way you used to sweetly look at me, turned bitter. The way you used to say my name brought smiles to my face, now it only brings memories of what was.

So thank you. Thank you for showing me what I don't need. Thank you for giving me up. Because if you hadn't, I wouldn't be learning how to love 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.

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.
