As a very, very organized person, I tend to make lots of lists. I make to do lists, to buy lists, packing lists, books/movies/TV shows to watch lists, gratitude lists and the list goes on. See what I did there? ;)

Anyways, I thought I would offer some of my list making advice to you peeps. Just so you can better organize and structure your lives.

So here is a list of things I have and continue to put into lists.

1. List of Passions

Make a list of all of the things you're passionate about.

2. Prayer List

3. Songs to Download

4. List of Dreams

Make a list of your biggest dreams, smallest dreams and every one in between!

5. List of Your Favorite Quotes and/or Bible Verses

6. Easy and Quick Meals

I don't know about you guys but it always takes me FOREVER to decide what to eat. So, a list of quick and easy meals to make is very helpful.

7. Your Favorite Restaurants

It's also helpful to have a list of your go-to or favorite restaurants, for when you can't decide where to eat. And because food is life.

8. Bucket List

Make a list of everything you want to do or see before you die! Or you could make a list of things you want to do before you go somewhere, leave somewhere, during a season, for a holiday, before you turn a certain age, before you get married/ have kids, etc. For example, you could make a list of things you want to do on your campus before you graduate!

9. Pro/Con List

Whenever I'm faced with a big or small decision, it always helps me to make a pro/con list. Just to get all of your thoughts out and onto paper, so you can better decide!

10. Gratitude List

Jot down everything you're thankful for, and look back at it when you forget (for me that's every day).

11. Summer/Spring/Fall/Winter Reading List

12. Christmas Present List

Christmas is coming up, so you should make a list of presents you want to give and receive.

13. Thirteen (Or More) Reasons Why

I really enjoyed the movie and book, 13 Reasons Why. The show made me think a lot about my life, and the decisions I make. So I decided to make a list, similar to Hannah's, except mine is thirteen reasons why I want to live. This list was basically a reminder of the things I'm most thankful for in my life.

14. Important Dates to Remember

Anniversaries, birthdays, holidays, exam dates, movie/book release dates, etc.

15. Movies to Watch

Jot down all the new or old movies you want to watch!

16. TV Shows to Watch

Jot down all the new or old shows you want to binge!

17. Places You Want to Visit

18. Goals List

It has been proven that you are more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down and look at them often. So make a yearly, 2-year, 5-year, 10-year, and/or lif goals list, and put it somewhere you often look! Like near your makeup mirror, in your planner, or by your bed!

19. List of Your Favorite Things

20. List of Odyssey Articles to Write

I try to jot article ideas down whenever they come to me, so I'm not trying to figure something out the night of.

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. 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.
