Even school supplies can be fun to buy!

5 Things Everyone Loves About Shopping

Everyone loves buying new things. Even things as simple as school supplies can be fun purchases. Here are some of the things everyone loves about buying new things.

1. The anticipation of ordering something online.

There is nothing more thrilling than checking the mail and having something brand new that you were expecting. I don’t know exactly how to explain it but when you find that perfect thing and order it and it finally comes it, I become completely overwhelmed with happiness.

2. Trying on something that looks great.

Not only is it a confident boost to try on something that looks good, it is also fun sprucing up your wardrobe and having something new to go out and show the world.

3. Finding something that you never knew you wanted before you got to the store.

I can’t even tell you how many times I have gone to the store and left with so much more than I even intended. I also know that I am not the only one who does this.

4. Spending hours strolling aisles looking at all of the pretty things to buy.

It is thrilling to me to go to a store that sells everything like Target and get stuck looking in the office supplies. They have so many things that are pretty and seem very useful but have no use to me at all. I could spend hours doing that.

5. Actually owning something new.

This one pretty much explains itself.

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.

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.
