What's The Hurry?

Trust the timing of your life

What's The Hurry?

Challenges, obstacles, and struggles. Life sure can be chaotic sometimes and I always seem to get into a funk when my life goes off balance.

Maybe that's because we have a tendency to want what we want when we want it. But I'm slowly learning that waiting is not so bad.

Waiting doesn't mean you're passive or that you've failed or your life is falling apart. When all is said and done it is just a part of life. That is why patience is something we have to continuously accept and learn.

There are times when things don't get done, there are delays, and hurdles are in the way. But it's okay to run out of time. There's always tomorrow, another day, or another year.

As cliche as it sounds, everything really does happen for a reason. This, as a concept, wasn't always in my realm of thinking. It has taken time for me to accept and understand it.

I spent a lot of last year focusing too much energy into making plans, worrying about my future, and stressing over expectations of how things should turn out.

This year I'm learning that timing won't always be against you and it won't be wrong. Doors have been opening full of change and opportunity.

Maybe all those timelines and dates I put for myself were all off and my journey is taking a totally different timeline.

So far I've come out with a bunch of really good lessons, a whole lot of wisdom, a new found strength and a more positive attitude.

Timing may not always be on my side but it's on the right side. The one that makes sense and will make my future not only better but easier.

Eventually, things will fall into place.

So for now I will let time take it's time.

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.
