Yeah, I may be a 70-year-old woman trapped in a 19-year-old body, so what? I’m like a fine bottle of wine, better aged. Every friend group has them and can undoubtedly point that person out. You play an essential role in the dynamics of the friend group and are the calm to everyone’s storm. I prefer the term “mature” rather than "old."

10 signs you’re the grandma of the friend group:

1. Wine is 9 times out of 10 your drink of choice.

Why would you want to sip on Natty Light when there’s Pinot Grigio? Still gets the job done.

2. You refuse to pull an all-nighter and are rarely in bed past 10 p.m. on school nights.

You'll never regret that full night of sleep.

3. Yet you’re the first one to wake up every morning.

Waking up at 9:30 is considered sleeping in.

4. Whenever your friends ask if you’re going out your answer is, “I don’t know, want to have a wine night instead?”

5. And when you do venture out, you’re the first one to ask if anyone wants to leave.

"Uber will be here in 10 if anyone wants to join."

6. You’ve replaced your finsta with a food insta or an insta for your dog.

Please, we've moved on to bigger and better.

7. Nothing excites you more than a good sale.

You know every promo code, where you can find that Free People top for cheaper, and the only notifications you get on your phone are from sales on your fashion apps.

8. You’re constantly complaining about every ache and pain in your body.

There's always something wrong, and you can never take too much Advil.

9. When your friends need to find you, you’re most likely at home.

Debating turning off my location on Find My Friends so people don't judge me for the unhealthy amount of time I spend at home.

10. When grandma does hit the town, the town takes a hit.

Who doesn't love old people? This grandma's still got it.

We're just a step ahead of everyone else.

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.

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.
