When you start working out, it eventually will become an addiction. The stronger you get, the better you feel, and suddenly you find yourself ditching your go-to stair master machine for the squat rack you've been staring at. Yep, you’re officially a "girl who lifts".

We can lift just as much as those guys in the gym (not all because some are monstrous), we just do it with lip gloss and painted nails.

1. Our phones look like this in the morning

But we still show up to work with more energy then your triple shot latte can ever give you.

3. We look forward to cheat day like it's Christmas.

4. “Complaining” about the callouses on your hands.

They’re so gross-looking, but you just have to show everyone.

5. You can handle the 45-lb plates just fine, thank you, but guys still try to help you.

6. but you will never say no for help from the cute trainer dude.

"I think there is too much stress on my shoulders. Can you tell me if I am doing this right?"

7. We're not afraid to lift.

8. And when you tell people you lift, they always ask, "Aren't you scared of getting bulky?"

And you must restrain yourself from using your muscles (which you got from lifting) to hurt them.

9. When he says "Skip the gym and come see me"

I will see you after the gym.

10. Mentally critiquing other people's form

11. Sometimes you challenge people to arm wrestles when you’re drunk.

12. Those creepy guys be like..

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.

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.

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.
