Everyone has their own ups and downs each day. But I think it's safe to say that what unites people more than anything are those unavoidable cringe-worthy moments that we all suffer from. For example, nails on a chalkboard. (I cringed while typing that sentence.) Enjoy reading these 13 most common moments that make you cringe and I dare you not to squirm while reading them...It's impossible.

1. Making eye contact with someone through the crack in the bathroom stall when you've been sitting there for a couple of minutes already...

2. Thinking someone is waving to you and waving back...

3. Talking to someone while they have something in their teeth the entire time.

Or worse realizing you've had something in your teeth that entire time.

4. Hearing what your voice sounds like recorded

5. Someone cutting their burrito in half

How dare you.

6. Running into the teacher that you don't like anywhere other than the classroom

Do I wave? Do I smile? Do I hide?

7. Walking by a nice family visiting the campus while you're taking a walk of shame on a Sunday morning.

By that point you should probably walk straight to Church. Y'all need Jesus.

8. Seeing someone barefoot on the sticky floor of the bar.

Dirty toenails and all. Unsanitary doesn't even begin to describe it.

9. Watching that one kid in your 8am drink a diet coke.

Every. Single. Class.

10. When the classroom or anywhere becomes unbearably silent suddenly

11. When the teacher asks a question and no one knows the answer AND THEY WAIT until someone finally says something and no one is taking one for the team and stepping up. You avoid eye contact at ALL COSTS.

You can cut the awkward silence with a knife.

12. Kids in the lib with their feet on the desk and no shoes on.

You nasty.

13. Seeing the person you met drunk in the bathroom the night before

....are you guys friends? Do they remember this memory you share?

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.
