Whether or not you work with kids, you've had that moment of "did I just say that?" when talking to children. I get the privilege of working with kids every day and getting plenty of opportunities to say things that just wouldn't be acceptable to say to adults.

*The following are actual things I've said to my campers this summer*

1. No barking.

2. Come back and clean that up.

3. We don't bite people.

4. I've got the tickle monster on speed dial.

5. Stop picking your nose.

6. Don't eat that.

7. Why are you sticky?

8. Let's go slow poke.

9. *child*: "Look it's a finger bracelet!"

*me*: "You mean a ring?"

10. Why are you carrying a cup of dirt?

11. Did you just lick your fingers and then wipe them on me?

12. Where is your shirt?

13. You want to be a hobo when you're older?... At least you're following your dreams.

14. *looking up their nose* No there's no bats in the cave. What about me?

15. Throw this away for me please.. I'll time you.

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.

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.
