5 Reasons Why Not Wearing Makeup Has been A Good Life Decision

There are so many different reasons why people choose to wear makeup. And I used to think that it was a societal norm to wear it and that it would be weird if I didn't. Freshman year I went to a public school and people really cared about how they looked. Then sophomore year of high school, I went to an all girls private school for the rest of my high school years and the majority of people didn't care how they looked unless we were going to visit our brother school (gotta look good for the boys).

I never wore a lot of makeup, if I did it was just eye shadow, mascara, maybe some eyeliner and the face stuff that is supposed to hide all your pimples. But then I went through a phase when I decided I wanted to be more natural and didn't want to wear makeup. Then I went back to wearing it, but now as I am about to leave for college I have never been more sure that I do NOT want to wear makeup!!! Here are 5 reasons why I am making the decision to not wear makeup!

1. I don't have to worry about the dreaded pain of getting makeup into my eyes.

2. My wallet has a few extra dollars in it, because makeup is NOT cheap.

3. You don't have to scrub your face until it hurts to get all the make up off.

4. You never look like you are taking a halloween costume off your face.

5. God made you without make up, so WHY would you actually need it!?

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.

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.
