Raccoon: Pet or Pest? Definitely Pet.

15 Reasons Why You Should Have A Pet Raccoon

When one hears the word "raccoon" the first thing that comes to mind is usually something along the lines of: "Get that thing out of here!" or "Why is that pest here?!" Unlike the majority, there are few who believe that raccoons are pretty much the best animals out there. In the following list, I will lay out why everyone should have a pet raccoon.

In today's day and age, people want some kind of companion to greet you at your front door when you get home from a long day of classes or work. Most people would go straight for a cat or a dog. I am not saying that cats and dogs are bad choices, but for anyone who wants to be super cool and ahead of the time and all your friends, a raccoon is definitely the pet for you.

1. First, look how cute this baby raccoon is!

2. This little guy is just trying to get some nutrients.

3. Just, c'mon, they just want to make friends.

4. Look at how freakin' cute this is.

5. He just wants to take a nap.

6. This baby even wants to be a raccoon.

7. ... MARIO! Mario even wants to be a raccoon.

Like, c'mon, you can't disagree with Mario.

8. You can even take them for car rides.

9. Or maybe go on a nice bike ride.

10. Look at the endless hours of summer fun you can have with your raccoon.

11. You could be just like Pocahontas.

12. They know how to take care of others, which is always a plus in a pet.

13. They are ticklish and playful: also a big plus.

14. You can even cuddle up in a blanket together.

15. And finally, look at your potential pet playing with all his friends.

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.

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.
