11 Things I Strongly Like

Because everyone needs more optimism in their life

11 Things I Strongly Like

Recently another member from my Odyssey Community wrote "10 Things I Strongly Dislike" because in his words, he's sort of a pessimist. Well I think the world needs more optimism so here's my own list of 11 things I strongly like. Because life always has more positivity than negativity.

1. Chocolate Chip Pancakes

It combines two of the best things: Breakfast foods and chocolate. How could you strongly dislike something like this?

2. My Roommate and Her Dog

She's just a wonderful person and Torie her dog is the best emotional support out there! And just look how cute they are!

3. Kesha's Newest Album: Rainbow

It has everything. Party tracks ('Boots' and 'Boogie Feet'). Songs to celebrate you ('Let Em Talk' and 'Woman'). Songs to say screw the haters ('Let Em Talk' and 'Learn to Let Go'). Songs to give you all the feelings ('Praying' and 'Spaceship'). In addition to the killer comeback album, you can't help but love her honesty and vulnerability put into every. single. track.

4. Funny Protest Signs

Protesting is some serious business (especially under current administration). But if you ever need a laugh, look no further than an image search for "Funny Protest Signs." With everything from sarcasm, puns, references to Harry Potter and just pain sassy ones, they are sure to make you laugh.

5. Books make you seriously feel something and think about everything.

Shout out to some of favorites: "The Princess Saves Herself In This One" by Amanda Lovelace and "13 Reasons Why" by Jay Asher.

6. College Discounts

Everything is expensive, I'm broke, hungry, perpetually tired, and stressed. Cheaper things in life are the best.

7. Wearing mismatched socks

Because wearing matching socks are for boring adults.

8. Graffiti in the bathroom at bars

Have you ever seen such drunk and wonderfully humorous tidbits of wisdom?

9. Latte Art

In addition to the actual delicious Latte, how can you not appreciate when the barista adds latte art? Shout out to my favorite coffee place: Caffeology.

10. People I talk to at work who give me funny stories to tell

I work at the alumni call center on campus, and some of the people are entertaining. One of my recent favorites was a prospect who lived in one of the Carolinas, and asked if Canisius supported free speech. I told him yes of course (after all it is a First Amendment right). Then he asked even for conservatives? And if I was sure. I explained that my professors have tried to make classrooms open forums for discussion of politically charged topics without attacking the individuals. Then he asked who I voted for in 2012. I told him I couldn't vote in that election. He then asked if I was a felon. Because apparently being a felon is more likely than me being under 18 in the 2012 election.

11. Spontaneous Solo Adventures

Everyone needs to take more time for themselves and what better way to do so than get out and do something new or going somewhere you love that you want to go to more?

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.
