5 Life Lessons That Every College Girl From Elle Woods

If you are anything like me, you have seen the movie "Legally Blonde" at least five plus times and you never get tired of it. Not only does Elle Woods provide laughs and a good time, but she also provides life lessons every college girl should follow and stick to for the rest of her life.

1. Not letting a boy waste your time.

Yeah, maybe Warner was the one who initially told Elle that they were no longer together, but when he came crawling back after seeing her accomplishments, Elle had zero time for that. Elle was strong enough and the perfect example of how if someone is not good enough for you, they aren’t worth your time. And let's be honest, Emmett was a lot cuter anyways. So, if you haven’t gotten rid of that loser boyfriend yet, take control because this is your time now and no one should hold you down.

2. Always being there for others.

“Bend and Snap!” Really, what more to I have to say? Elle not only taught all the women in the nail salon how to let go and have fun but also everyone who watched "Legally Blonde". Elle showed us that everyone has their bad days and needs someone to put a smile back on their face. So from here on, be there for other people and let them know that you are always there for them and have a little fun while you’re at it.

3. Having a support system around you.

Elle had the sorority sisters that every girl dreams of having or in some cases (like mine) already has. They were there for her in her desperate time of need to make a great score on the LSAT. Elle had the people around her who believed in her and wanted to help her reach her new dream of law school. Just like there being no time for a lame useless boyfriend, there’s no time for fake friends. Surround yourself with the people who love and care for you and want you to succeed not only this semester but for a lifetime.

4. Not letting the bad days take over.

Whether it is getting a D on your Philosophy exam or dropping your Caramel Frappuccino on the floor of Starbucks, we all have bad days, even Elle Woods. Though breakdowns do happen to everyone, its all about how you pull out of them. Elle taught us that it is okay to eat the whole chocolate box sometimes to soothe the pain, but it's better to get out of bed put some lip gloss on and take the day by the reins.

5. Having faith in yourself.

Last but not least, always believe that you can accomplish anything. Not only did Elle Woods get into Harvard, but she also was valedictorian. Just like Elle, you will make it. You will graduate and who knows maybe you will be the top of your graduating class too. It is important to remember there will be bad boyfriends, bad friends, bad classes, and bad days, but that shouldn’t make for a bad college experience. Always, always believe you deserve and can do better – just like Elle did.

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.

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.
