They really are your best friends forever.

11 Reasons Why Your Best Friends From Home Are Your Best Friends For Life
Nicole Allen

As my college experience comes to a close I have realized a lot of things; what I'm passionate about, what I want to pursue as a career and most importantly who my real friends are. I have made a lot of great friends in college, some of whom I will know I will be friends with for the rest of my life. However, I truly believe that my best friends from home are going to be my best friends for life, here are 11 reasons why.

1. They Have Seen You Grow Into The Person You Are Today.

They were with you in your awkward middle school years, fun high school years and beyond.

2. You Talk To Each Other On a Daily Basis.

Even though you don't see each other on a daily basis you always communicate through group messages, snap chat or random hour long phone calls.

3. They Are The First To Know Everything That Has Happened Recently In Your Life.

You bought a new shirt? They probably helped pick it out via pictures. Your not feeling well? They are clearly the first person to consult instead of a physician. They always are the first person you tell even though they're 1,000 of miles away.

4. You Make The Most Out Of Your Time Together.

Whether its weekend trips to Atlantic City, going out to bars on your weekend home or even just spending days by the pool in the summer, you always have fun and make the most out of your time together.

5. You Put In The Extra Effort.

This can be a phone call when your too stressed out, helping pick out bridesmaid dresses or even randomly visiting them during the school year. The little things that you do for each other are what really counts.

6. They Always Know The Right Thing To Say.

Whether you just bombed a test, stressed about life after college, had a fight with your parents or boyfriends, they always know what to say to make you feel better.

7. They Always Have Your Back.

Even if your in the wrong, they support you 100 percent.

8. They're Like Family.

You basically are the Kimmy Gibbler to your BFFs parents and they really don't mind after all these years, they even start to think of you as another child.

9. They Tell It How It Is.

They're always going to tell you what you need to hear, whether you like it or not their going to be honest with you because its what you deserve.

10. They Make You Laugh.

Even though you aren't with each other everyday they always say something that makes you laugh. When you all reunite your abs sometimes hurt because of laughing to much.

11. They're The Ones Who Are There For You, No Matter What

They are your people, your tribe, they are always going to be there for you.

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.
