Anxiety can take many forms with many different triggers. If you have travel-induced anxiety, here are 10 questions you probably end up asking yourself:

1. What if something happens to my parents? Grandparents?

I've always been a family person, so being a plane ride away from them will always scare the sh*t out of me. I feel so helpless on vacation, and I would be an absolute wreck if they needed me and I wasn't there for them.

2. OMG, what about my dog?!

My dogs are my babies and they think I abandoned them. I feel like the worst owner ever when I leave them, but if something ever happened while I'm gone? I'd never forgive myself.

3. What if the plane runs out of fuel?

I'd probably have a heart attack just hearing that message.

4. ...or we crash?

I'd really never make it then.

5. ...or I have to do any of that annoying stuff the flight attendant says at the beginning?

I've heard it a million times, but I haven't listened in years sooo...

6. What happens if I land in the hospital and no one can visit because I'm 37388362 miles away?

Hospitals scare me as it is, I can't even imagine not having my family there with me.

7. What happens if the hotel catches on fire? I'll never make it out.

Does anyone ever pay attention to those little maps on the back of the door? And all the fire alarms constant blinking is just annoying.

8. ...or my house?!

My stuff... My family...

9. What happens if I lose my luggage doesn't make it? I'm going to have to roam this city naked!

The clothes I lost are the best of the best, my favorites of favorites... what would I do?

10. What happens if my best friend needs me?

What if they need me? What will I do? I'd never forgive myself for being such a bad friend.

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.
