10 Places You're Forgetting To Clean

Spring cleaning is in full swing right now, but there are places and spots that you keep missing.

Cleaning our tables, counters, and floors just isn't enough. We need to be thinking about places and things we touch everyday and aren't cleaning.

Your phone screen

Probably one of the most germy things we touch everyday.

Fridge/microwave door handles 

I don't know about your house, but these handles can get super gross.

Light switches 

Our hands touch them everyday without even thinking about it.

Keyboards/computer mouses 

Your keyboard has probably been catching all those crumbs from chips you've been eating, as you watchiNetflix on your laptop.

Your car steering wheel/handles 

Your steering wheel or car handles are the first things you touch after going anywhere.

TV remotes 

Everyone in your house is touching this and it probably falls on the floor half the time.

Sinks/shower handles 

It's like the place we go to clean, but we aren't cleaning the thing we want to use to get cleaned.

Above your refrigerator or cabinets

Just because you can't see the tops of these surfaces, doesn't mean they aren't dirty or dusty. Trust me.

Under different kitchen appliances

You know like your toaster, bowls, or your fridge that just sit there all the time. Stop cleaning around them. Scrub under there and clean up all those forgotten crumbs.

Your trash can

Food or drinks can miss the trash can liner and can fall into the can itself. The next time you take out your trash, wipe down the inside of it too!

Now, go get cleaning!

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.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
