Poetry on the Odyssey: I Am Not Waiting For You

With busy hands my heart and mind work to manifest God's plan.

I'm not waiting for you

Waiting for you is not

What I am supposed to do

Waiting implies without you

I am not complete

I know better

It is not you

But, God that planned my destiny

That's why I no longer wait

But I live a purposeful life

Mind focus on the love of Christ

So, I will hear well done

I give God my best

The day I enter the gates

After so many tries

I thought I could recognize

A true heart, wisdom, obedience, and love

Of the man of God who is to guide

That is not how it works

That's not how it is to be

There are simple truths

With them, you will be allowed to find me

I have learned, I can scream about my worth

Until my last days on earth

But, the distractor looks for a weakness

Preys on your thoughts

Will keep your mind bound

To the things of this earth

So like a palm tree with upward-reaching branches

I must keep, not only my hands and arms lifted high

But my thoughts on the Light

It's okay. It is not for all of you to understand

It is only for the one seeking God

Because he is the one

He is God's man

The other half of the vision

The one working just like me to complete God's mission

So don't be angry or disappointed

Because I don't entertain you

I am God's baby and I am busy doing what I am supposed to do

I am not for everybody

My mind and soul is reserved for that Godly man

He is my king we will build, grow for God is all powerful.

A Dedication to Carla And Every Proverbs 31 Woman.

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. 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.
