The 12 Phases Of Discovering A New Band

Music is one of the most important forms of art and expression in the world. There are many genres of music. From the raging screams of a metal band to the sweet hymns of a symphony, there is something out there for everyone to listen to. Whenever we discover a new band, group, or individual we all have the same initial stages reacting to finding this new group and they are as follows.

1. You can't fathom how you have lived without hearing about them.

After one day of listening to them, you feel as if you have been wasting your life listening to anything else.

2. You become their biggest fan without knowing their history.

Who cares about their history? Their music is great and that's all that matters.

3. You buy their latest album.

Not only their latest album, but you must have all of their merch as well.

4. You excitedly tell everyone you know about them.

You can't physically talk about anything else until everyone knows how good this band is.

5. When someone says they are just all right.

That person, whether they were a friend or not, is now dead to you.

6. You are disappointed when you look up their concert schedule and they just had a concert near you.

The pain is unreal.

7. You start looking up the band's history.

This makes you love them even more.

8. You feel an odd sense of accomplishment when you show them to a friend and they like them too.

You are such a good friend for getting your friend out of the dark.

9. You argue with older fans that their newer stuff is better.

Just because you recently did research doesn't make you a better fan.

10. You listen to their older stuff, and realize it is actually better.

Those older fans were right and you praise them for their wisdom.

11. After listening to them for about a week, you start to burn out.

As quickly as the passion started, it dies.

12. You find another new band and completely forget about how great that other band is.

"Oh, you have probably never heard of them before."

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.
