How do you vacation?

The 4 Types Of Vacationers
The Penny Pinch

Everyone’s favorite time of the year are the weeks that we have off from school or work to be out in the world without all of the responsibilities and stress of your typical life. You know what I’m referring to -- vacations. They are what make this world go round. But just because everyone can agree that they are the best events throughout the year doesn’t mean that everyone views them the same. There are four different types of vacationers out there. Which one are you?

1. If you’re gonna be a homebody…

There are some of you whose idea of a vacation is sitting at home doing nothing -- no responsibilities, nowhere to go, and nothing to do. Maybe you just want to turn on Netflix, invite a friend or two over, and eat snacks all day. Maybe you’ll move if Sam Hunt comes and asks you to have a house party, but until then you have your favorite spot on the couch or are comfortable in bed, and that will not be changing. Why go on vacation when you can staycation?

2. Dora, Dora, Dora the Explorer

An upbeat, activity-filled vacation is everything you could ever dream of. You are an adrenaline junkie and hate having down time and people refer to you as the energy bunny. From sight-seeing to skydiving, you’ve done it all and you can’t wait to just keep cranking through items on your bucket list every chance you get.

3. Relaxation nation

If this is you, you probably want the most easy-breezy vacation sitting somewhere on a beach or at the poolside sipping on piña coladas without a care in the world. You have a great book picked out that you can’t wait to read, your favorite pair of sunglasses, and you’re ready to go sit and watch the days just float on by. A vacation is your chance to relax and you plan to use every minute that you can to do just that.

4. Shopaholic

It doesn’t really matter where you go for vacation, we all know you will be spending it with your wallet out and your eyes wide open -- yes, shopping! You need something to remember each vacation by, right? And that something doesn’t have to stop at just a cute ornament or tacky t-shirt.

No matter how you spend your weeks off, make sure to enjoy them. Vacations are some of the best times we get and make for some of the most memorable experiences, so appreciate them and make them something to remember!

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.
