Is he seriously only 19?

14 Thoughts College Students Have Watching Dylan Larkin Play
Detroit Red Wings

Dylan Larkin has become a common household name in the homes of Red Wings fans. At the age of 19...yes 19, Larkin has taken Hockeytown by storm and is dominating the ice! The Michigan native, and former University of Michigan player, has commented several times that he always dreamed of playing for the Wings. And many of us never thought that his dream would come true at the very young age of 19. Again, I repeat, he is only 19…the average age of a college sophomore! So here are 14 thoughts that most college students have while watching Larkin on the ice.

1. He's only 19… I am 19 and I can barely get myself to class on a daily basis…he has his life together in the NHL and I can’t even decide what I want to make for dinner tonight.

2. Wow, he is a natural… Why couldn’t I be that good at a sport? My only sports glory is that I scored in my IM game tonight...

3. Why cant I be him? I just want my life together... I don't have to be in the NHL.

4. "LARKIN HAS THE PUCK, I REPEAT LARKIN HAS THE PUCK!" No one looks away, because they're in awe at his skill.


6. I wonder if he is single... How can I meet him?

7. When he scores, look how happy he is! He is so adorable! Look at that baby face!

8. I want…no NEED a Larkin jersey ASAP... I am texting my mom to add it to my Christmas list.

9. YES! He’s starting again!

10. Is he seriously only 19? I am 19…

11. He is so fun to watch! I look forward to Wings games just to see what he does next...

12. I feel like I know him….

13. I really don’t, but I like to think I do just because we are the same age and I knew of him when he played at U of M!

14. How is he ONLY 19? Imagine how good he will be in the years to come...

Welcome to the Red Wings, Dylan!

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
