20 Things you Didn't Know About Me

It took me 15 years to get my ears pierced.

20 Things you Didn't Know About Me
Sydney Shaw

1) No matter how hard I try, I can’t sleep in. I’ll wake up at 7 am, and lay in bed till 9 am. Then I force myself to get out of bed because I can't fall back asleep. It's a curse.

2) I’m a coffee drinker; creamer is a must.

3) I love the way a blanket feels after it’s hot out of the dryer.

4) I never used to get emotional during movies, but ever since I’ve begun my life as a college student and I’ve endured life’s hardships, I find every sad moment in a movie relatable.

5) I love having red nails and curling my long, blonde hair. (Okay, y'all could probably guess that one about me).

6) I secretly hate wearing cute clothes. I still wear them for some reason, but as soon as I’m home and I know I don’t have to go anywhere, I’ll throw on a sweatshirt and some leggings.

7) I love cold weather.

8) My favorite time of year is fall because watching the leaves change color and drift to the ground reminds me that everything has a purpose in life, even if it means you have to transform yourself into a newer shade of beautiful in order to come back down to earth.

9) I wish the Vikings would win the super bowl. (...We all know that's not going to happen this year though).

10) I also wish I could lose 30 pounds.

11) Before I go to bed at night, I listen to music super loudly and imagine myself singing in a music video.

12) I hate bees, a lot. Why? I got chased by one around my garage when I was five and I got stung by one twice in my leg and finger.

13) I love the feeling of Butter London lip gloss on my lips.

14) It took me 15 years to get my ears pierced.

15) My favorite Bible verse is Joshua 1:9

16) Sometimes when I get done from working late at night, I’ll crack open a tub of cream cheese and dip extra toast Cheez-its in it. Best midnight snack EVER.

17) Waking up to a fresh blanket of snow while still comfy and cozy in bed is my favorite thing in the world.

18) I can’t fall asleep without a fan on.

19) When I’m stressed out, I take a long, hot shower only using candlelight to see.

20) My relationship with God is the most important thing in the world to me.

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.
