Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Who do you see in the mirror?

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Do you give in when you see a mirror or take a picture? Do you only see flaws or do you see yourself how others see you? Do not instantly feel belittled when you look in the mirror. See yourself with your beauty, both inner and outer. The first thing all people need to know is self-confidence. If they are confident in themselves, whether it is looks or an action, they will be happier.

Often times when people look in the mirror and only see imperfections. If people fixate on their imperfections they will only see those imperfections and not their true beauty. Many people have quotes about beauty and not believing the mirror. One person is Chris Butler and he wrote one of my favorite quotes. He wrote the quote, “mirror, mirror on the wall, I’ll always get up after I fall. Whether I run, walk, or have to crawl, I’ll set my goals and achieve them all.” I love this quote because it does not mean we are going to get up and bounce back from failing right away. It shows that things take time to heal and recover from. Whether it takes an individual an hour, a week or even a few months to recover from their failure.

Everyone hits bumps in the road but how they handle it shows their character. If people were to let every negative thing people say about them effect them, people would be nowhere near as strong as they are. If every girl were to let every negative comment effect her, they would not be as strong as they are. Women get their beauty from their confidence. In fairy tales, Disney princesses turn to a mirror and ask who is the fairest of them all. Part of me thinks fairy tales should not have princesses rely on a mirror for its opinion. Frozen made it so people knew all princesses were not perfect. Part of the movie shows Anna waking up with her hair a mess. This is probably my favorite scene of the movie because it shows that not everyone wakes up flawless. People wake up with their hair messy and maybe even have make up left on from the night before.

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.

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.
