When Being Strong Is The Only Choice You Have, Take It And Run

It's so worth it in the end.

When Being Strong Is The Only Choice You Have, Take It And Run

“You never know how strong you are, until being strong is the only choice you have.”

Has your heart ever told you to be strong, but your head tells you to break down? Give up?

Yeah I know, it happens more times than not…and most of the time, as sad as it is, we want to listen to our heads.

There are so many reasons why you believe you should throw in the towel, like getting your heart broken, family problems, and problems with friends. Trust me, I've been there..and it sucks. But guess what? Relationships come and go, especially when you're young. Family is there to stay forever no matter what, and if friends are your true friends…they wouldn't hurt you to begin with, so if they do, forget about them.

I know it's so much easier said than done.. but once you realize how strong you truly are, everything in life gets so much simpler.

And to realize how strong you are, God will put you through the toughest situations known..so keep your smile and stand tall, you'll get through this. Has your mom ever said to you, “there's always a little rain before a rainbow” well mine has.. and I believe that to be very true. It always gets worse before it will get better, fight through the hard times as hard as you possibly can, don't give up, and you'll always end up on top.

So stay strong, don't give up. Everyone has battles, but only the strongest make it to the end, and when you reach the end, realizing how strong you are is SO worth the fight.

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.
