Because sitting in a car for hours on end is the best way to spend your time.

20 Thoughts You Have While On A Road Trip

This year, for Spring Break, a friend and I decided to travel to the Big Easy for a week. Since we are broke college students, we made the decision to drive down instead of fly. We knew that that trip down and then back was going to be a long one since we go to school in northern Pennsylvania, but we were committed to driving so we sucked it up and just went for it.

I've been on long car trips before, but they were few and far between. Honestly, I had no expectation for what the drive was going to be like.

1. "OK, gotta plug in the address."

2. "Thank God for GPS..."

3. "Did I remember everything?" and "Let's hope so..."

4. "This playlist I made is everything."

5. "This playlist I made is wayyyy too short."

6. "Crap. I think I forgot my hairbrush."

7. "Man, we're making great time!"

8. "Could this traffic be any worse??"

9. *Sees Hawaii license plate* "How tho...?"

10. "Shit, I forgot the Dramamine..."

11. "I think I'm hungry."

12. "Or am I bored?"

13. "Nope...hungry."

14. "...but I'm definitely bored."

15. "Are we there yet?"

16. "What do you mean its only been two hours! It feels like 10."

17. "I'm going insane."

18. "This isn't too bad."

19. "I'm never getting in a car again."

20. "Do you think I could be one of those van-lifers...?"

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.

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.
