If you had your first round of Q&A family style during Thanksgiving, pour yourself a glass of wine, you deserve a break. Hopefully, you were able to escape unscathed. Maybe you even got to avoid it altogether and skipped going home for the feast in exchange for spending it with the family of a close friends. They never ask questions. Regardless, the holiday season is upon us my friends, and it is brutal out there. Here are 10 questions that I guarantee someone asks you before the new year.

Are you dating someone?

Because your personal life is never actually personal when the family arrives.

it is sure to be followed up with an even more outrageous question like...

Can we meet them?

To scare them away with more invasive questions? Let's not.

How is school going?

GREAT. It's fine. I'm fine.


What are you going to do once you graduate?

For the love of all things holy. DO NOT ASK THAT QUESTION



“You know... when I was your age…"

No I don't. But I bet you will tell me.


When are you ACTUALLY going to get a job?

Maybe after I turn in the 4 group projects, take all 6 finals, and write 3 essays. I don't know, once I get a degree and 3-5 years of professional experience. Didn't we already talk about this?


What happened to you ex "so and so"?

The one from 5 years ago? I moved on. Can you please do the same now?


When are you going to get married?


Did you hear about what “so and so’s” kid/cousin/friend did?

The one that graduated top of their class at Harvard, had an internship with Google, and has a job offer from the White house? Yes, I have, many times, from you.


What is your major, again?

The same one it was last year Grandma, and yes I can still get a job with it.



and when they ask who you voted for...

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.

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.

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.
