College will introduce you to some of the best and worst people. For better or worse, these are the people you’ll be seeing for the next four years, so buckle up, collegiate.

1) The Slacker with a Crazy IQ

This guy is either constantly playing video games, or always looking to party. Either way, you haven’t seen him in class since syllabus week, but somehow he always ends up with a crazy GPA.

2) The Girl Who Studies 24/7

You’ll see this girl in class and at the final exam, but that’s about it. Other than that, she’s locked up in the library or study room and working her butt off to earn that degree. You go, girl.

3) The Overachiever

This girl is similar to the one who studies all the time, however, she also has two jobs, 20 units, a boyfriend, is in a sorority, and also made the Dean’s List. Oh and she’s also super nice. You’ll hate not being able to hate this girl.

4) The Girl Who Can’t Handle Her Alcohol.

This girl is always overly excited about the weekend. She tends to get carried away, and is usually blacked out a few hours into the night. Giving her a re-cap the next day may embarrass her, but it most likely won’t change her ways.

5) The One in All of Your Classes

This person is a recurring figure in your life. You’ve basically guaranteed to have a class with them during any given term. You might not know each other’s names, but you’ll definitely acknowledge each other on campus.

6) The One That's ALWAYS on Their Phone

Whether they’re Snapchatting or texting their moms, these guys seem to get major anxiety being apart from their cell phone.

7) Awkward Hook-up Run-ins

You see each other around campus occasionally, and every time you do, it’s the weirdest thing ever. You’re guaranteed awkward eye contact if you ever happen to run into each other.

8) The People With Enough Energy to Act as a Wi-Fi Server for the Entire Continent of Africa.

You have to be wary of these guys. Sure, being around someone who's a ball of energy can be fun, but sometimes it can be a bit much.

9) The Obnoxious Couple

These guys probably met during the first few weeks of school, and they’re still going through their honeymoon phase a year later. Whether they’re posting cute Snap stories or making out on a park bench, these two are always together. If you’re friends with one of them, chances are you’ll have to get along with their significant other as well.

10) The Know-it-All

A lot of times these guys are actually really smart; but for the most part, they’re just convinced they know more than anyone else. No matter the topic, they always have some piece of information to add to the conversation.

11) The Lost Ones

These are the people you were convinced you’d be BFFLs with, but for some reason or another it didn’t work out. Now you aren’t totally sure whether to say hi to each other or not on campus.

12) Your Homies

These are your people. They’ll listen to your whining, and call you out on your mistakes. These guys won’t judge you for binge-watching "High School Musical," make 3 A.M. runs to find donuts, and will talk to you about anything and everything. You probably have a plethora of inside jokes, but can also communicate with just a look.

The college experience is different for everyone, but there are some people who you’ll find on every campus. You’ve got at least four years to find your people, and chances are, some of them are on this list.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.

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:

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.
