5 Reasons Every Friend Group Needs A Schmidt

"New Girl's" Schmidt is the character that everyone has a love-hate relationship with. He's the best and the worst. He's attractive, but he knows it. You would do anything for him, but he thinks he deserves it. He can be the biggest jerk, but he's also the best friend you could ask for. Everybody needs a little Schmidt in their life and here's why:

1. Eye Candy

This friend increases the attractive factor of your friend group by at least four points. If you want to stand out in a crowd, you better bring your Schmidt. He may know he's attractive and rub it in your face, but can you blame him? He's not wrong.

2. Wing Man

Your Schmidt-y friend is an attractive, suave guy. He gets all the ladies and he does his best to help you do the same. He's the ultimate wing man. Life tip: Don't leave the house without your Schmidt. But don't let him get to close to your girl. His devilish charm may be too much for her.

3. Brutal Honesty

Whether you've skipped the gym a few too many times or your tie doesn't match your shoes, Schmidt will let you know. His delivery might not be as soft and sweet as you would like, but somebody had to tell you, right? Sometimes you need some tough love. Luckily for you, tough love is Schmidt's specialty.

4. Built-In Maid

Schmidt loves to look his absolute best. This concern about his appearance carries over into his home. He can't stand a messy kitchen. With Schmidt around, you'll never have to worry about cleaning. He's got it covered. If you're lucky, he might even help you with your interior decorating.

5. The Glue

Up until now, you may be thinking that you've just been using your Schmidt. Doesn't he deserve better than that? He's not just an object for you to take advantage of, right? Right. He's not just the perfect wing man and house maid. He's the glue that holds your friendships together. His logic may be a little skewed, but he makes solid points in his own twisted way. His methods may be different than most, but you would never give him up. He may be putting countless dollars into the douche jar, but you know he's always got your back. He keeps your friendships fun and exciting.

By now, you've probably figured out which one of your friends is Schmidt. You might be mad because you've realized that he's a jerk. But you've also realized that you don't want it any other way. Whether you're confronting him regarding the inappropriate joke he made to your mother or stopping him from making a fool of himself in front of that girl for the third time tonight, you secretly hope he never changes. He may tell you things you don't want to hear. He may get you into trouble, but he always brings the party and he will never leave your side. So go thank that little Schmidt for all that he is and watch some New Girl.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
