10 Reasons Your Best Friend Is Your Best Friend

You're My Person

10 Reasons Your Best Friend Is Your Best Friend
Shelby Alldred

Whether you have known them your whole life or just met them five minutes ago, your best friend is hands down the best person to walk this planet. Here are just 10 of the many reasons why they're you're biggest blessing.

1. You never have to get food by yourself.

If you go through your saved text messages, 90% of them are probably something along the lines of "Do you want to go get food?" or "Are you hungry?" At least if you gain the freshmen 15, you'll do it together.

2. They're the only person on the planet that you think is as funny as you.

Let's be honest, everyone else's jokes just seem mediocre.

3. If the opportunity comes, they will lie for you on the spot. (without even being asked or knowing the situation).

You all know the situation I'm talking about.

4. They're always there to remind you how great and awesome you are.

No matter how bad you think you've messed up, your best friend will always think you're the greatest human being to walk the planet.

5. ... And also there to give you a friendly reminder when you aren't acting so awesome.

It's not always what you want to hear, but it's usually necessary (and out of love).

6. You have more fun with them completely sober than most people do while not sober.

You could be stranded in the middle of the desert for a week and would still find a way to have an absolute blast.

7. You didn't know separation anxiety was a thing until you met them.

A day without them is basically like a chicken running around with its head cut off.

8. If you're dating someone, they're dating your best friend, too.

Everything you do or say, my best friend will know within three seconds.

9. They are just as much apart of your family as you are.

Your family considers them family and vise versa. Honestly, they might as well be in your family photos.

10. Most importantly, life would totally suck without them.

They're your person. End of story.

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.

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.
