What Being 22 Has Taught Me

A lesson I have come to learn at the age of 22.

What Being 22 Has Taught Me

I have never in my life have expected to write an article like this, but I feel deep in my heart that it is necessary, as well as stumbling upon this quote only made it that clearer. I know the age of 22 is still young but I feel that I have learned so much yet still have so much to learn.

I find this quote to be an inspiration and a message because I feel that no matter what age you are this somehow applies to your life in some shape or form. For instance, a relationship ending or you're not sure where your path of life is currently taking you. I have had my fair share of being lost and heartbroken. Even though it completely sucks I have learned that everything happens for a reason and not to question everything, because a lot of times you will never get an answer or possible closure.

I know it is easier said than done, some days will always be harder than others. So, hold on to the good days soak in it so much that it is not memory on the bad days. It's okay to mourn on the bad days and possibly wish on what could have been, your emotions are valid, and you will shine in the end. So have that ice cream or watch that comfort show, it will help the burning heart, because in the end I know we will get through it.

It may not feel like it now, but the clouds will move away, and the sun will come out. When we do come out and face the world it is okay to take it slow, but never forget to keep our head high, even if we don't know where we are headed. Even though at the time I wasn't happy to see someone go or for a difficult life challenge to be thrown at me. I am so grateful now for every person and life situation that has passed my life, it has taught me so much. Being 22 has taught me to be more patient and kinder to my, body, mind, and soul.

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.

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.
