If you have an ESFJ personality type, you know some of the struggles of our daily lives all too well. You are outgoing, loyal, and sometimes overly aware of other people's emotions. You like to help others, and sometimes neglect your own needs to be able to help those around you. You live for human social interactions and sometimes you worry about the small things too much and forget to focus on the present. You are the counselors of your friend group.

1. You love parties.

You live for your nights out, spending time with friends, and letting loose.

2. You have to stay organized.

Every aspect of your life is planned. Your home is clean and organized. You stress about being late to work, parties, etc. You make lists for everything.

3. You take charge on group projects.

You work well in teams, but needing to be organized makes you a great leader on group projects in school and/or at work.

4. You are in tune with other people's emotions sometimes more so than your own.

You notice when your friend gives a weird glance and know what to say when they are going through a heartbreak. You neglect your own feelings to make sure your friends are ok.

5. You worry about hurting other people's emotions, even if it means sacrificing your own well being.

You worry you might say the wrong thing and upset your friend or S.O. even when it means your own feelings get pushed to the back.

6. You make friends easily.

You are an extrovert. You like talking to people and can find common ground with almost anyone.

7. You're the counselor of your friend group.

You are the person your friends come to for advice. You will always pick up your phone if someone calls and will be willing to drop anything to go to their aid.

8. You can talk to new people easily.

Another perk of being an ESFJ, you are good at speaking in front of strangers, you don't get nervous for job interviews or speaking in front of a group.

9. You take your work really seriously.

You need to feel successful and give 100% into anything you try. You have picked a career that means something to you and you aren't going to let anything get in your way.

10. Once you focus on something, it's hard for you to let go of it.

You perseverate on a comment made by a friend, a boss, a co-worker. You don't like disappointing others. You also have to complete your tasks before you start a new one and deviating from that schedule is a non-starter.

11. Being successful is important to you.

You want to make those around you proud and you work hard every day to ensure you are successful at whatever you choose.

12. You remember the little details.

You remember the little quirks about people you meet. You notice the little things people say. This makes you one great gift giver. You remember every little detail of everything you see.

13. You have a life plan.

You have a daily plan, a 5-year plan, and a 10-year plan. It's very hard for you to adapt to change.

14. You never get tired of being around people. Being alone is not fun for you.

You live for human interaction. Being alone makes you think about things in your life and worry too much about things years down the line. You love your friends and enjoy their company.

15. You need positive reinforcement.

You never want to let others down, so having their approval is important for you to feel successful.

16. You have to seriously plan every detail in your life to relax.

This goes along with being overly organized. You have a hard time deviating from the plan and just flying by the seat of your pants. You need to know what you're doing with your friends and have a plan for the day.

17. You are seen as easy-going and bubbly.

Even though you never let your perfectionist traits out of its cage, you are seen as super easy going and bubbly.

18. You are Monica Geller.

You relate to Monica Geller from Friends on a spiritual level.

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.

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.

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.
