To My Ex-Best Friend

I remember giving you advice about that boy, or that friend, and definitely remember thinking we'd never fall apart. But, we did.

To My Ex-Best Friend

Listen, things have changed.

I do not wish you sadness, hurt, or tears. I wish you learn more about yourself and the person you will become in life. I hope that boy does not hurt you because it will hurt me, even though we are not close anymore.

Sometimes I think about the crazy laughs we have shared, and all our memories together. I think about the forever promises we have made, the secrets we have kept and the things that made our friendship so different than others. I remember giving you advice about that boy, or that friend, and definitely remember thinking we'd never fall apart.

But we did.

I always think about, if we were still friends, where we would be. Our bond would have been stronger, and I am sure more inseparable than ever. But, you have found friends that you are meant to be with, and I guess that was not me.

Sometimes I scroll through old pictures and feel nostalgia, we have been through so much. So many laughs, tears, happy and sad. So many milestones we completed together, and so many reasons for me to be proud of who you are becoming. I randomly want to text you and ask you how you are, but I just can't get myself to do it.

I miss your mom, and how her advice was so true and so honest. I miss coming over randomly, literally all the time, just to sit and talk. Although I do miss these things, I moved on from them. I learned so much from this life lesson, and I have grown so much from it.

I see your picture on social media, and you occasionally pop up on other people's, too. You look happy, but, what the hell do pictures prove?

I hope you can sit in the car and blast old jams with other friends because those moments lit up my heart. I hope on Friday nights you have someone to watch movies with or go out to super fancy, or super not-fancy places with. Thank you for being there for me during my saddest times, you helped me become the person I am today. I am so happy I can look back at old times, and think of the fun we had together. Thank you for accepting me, at the time, for who I was.

I will never be mad at you that we are not friends, I get it. That is a huge part of life that we just need to accept. Things change and people change. I hope you have so much love for your friends as I do for my new ones. I hope you are no longer hurt either, as I am not. I just wanted to remind you that you are a good person and I will forever hold a piece of our friendship in my heart.

I think about maybe one day, fate, or destiny, will pull us back together. But who knows, we were happy as friends and I am almost positive we can be happy as acquaintances.

You know who you are.


Your ex-best friend. Xo.

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.
