Take some time out of your busy schedule to find a hobby you enjoy! While it may not be easy to find free time, it will so be worth it once you find something you are passionate about. Not only are hobbies a way to spend your free time, they also help you become a more well-rounded individual!

1. Baking.

This is a very rewarding and inexpensive hobby. You can share your finished product with family, friends, and coworkers. Who doesn't love to be surprised with homemade cupcakes or cookies every once in awhile?

2. Gardening.

This is a great way to grow some of your favorite herbs or vegetables and save yourself a trip to the grocery store!

3. Photography.

This one is easy if you carry your phone with you everywhere but if you really enjoy it, it's worth investing in and getting a nice camera! You can eventually decorate your home with your own photos!

4. Yoga.

Yoga has endless health benefits and will help you relax in the midst of a busy day.

5. Knitting/crocheting.

Both knitting and crocheting are very relaxing activities. Once you are done knitting a hat, scarf, blanket, etc. you can gift it, sell it, or keep it for yourself! This hobby is perfect for the fall or winter time.

6. Playing an instrument.

Teach yourself to play an instrument like the ukulele, guitar, drums, or piano! This will definitely help you clear your mind when you get overwhelmed.

7. Blogging.

Do you want to connect with new people, improve writing skills, maybe get paid? Then blogging is a perfect hobby for you!

8. Jewelry-making.

You can sell your jewelry on Etsy or make gifts for friends and family. This is another hobby that can be fairly inexpensive!

9. Reading.

There is nothing more relaxing than getting lost in a good book. Take a break from your required reading and read for leisure!

10. Golfing.

This hobby is a great way to get your exercise in while bonding with people and making friendships. The learning process takes patience but you can start off just practicing at a driving range.

11. Listen to podcasts.

Listening to podcasts takes very little energy and is entertaining. You can listen to podcasts anywhere (on the beach, in the car, at home) and you can learn a lot from them, too!

Try out a few different hobbies and decide which fits you. Many hobbies allow you to enjoy your free time and still feel productive.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my 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.

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. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
