5 Signs You Live With Your Best Friend

And long lost sister

5 Signs You Live With Your Best Friend

September marks the beginning of my second year living with my best friend and partner in crime. Together we took freshman year by storm and a stranger became my closest confidante, best hugger, and most understanding companion. This year I expect nothing less than perfection from a friend who has given me so much.

Once in a while we disagree like sisters, but we always make up like lifelong friends. Unlike anybody else in my life I had to live with her long before I chose to be her friend. So although we did not pick each other at first, it turns out we were the perfect match.

Here are five reasons why...

1. She knows your nap schedule.

It takes a special person to understand your constant need for sleep. Your best friend will not just laugh and leave you to rest, she will hop on her bed and say, "oh good, I was getting tired". Two hours later you'll be ready to take on the world.

2. She knows how to comfort you before you even ask.

When you walk in the room and something's not quite right she doesn't even ask. She pats the spot next to her and brings out the Netflix and Nutella and a big blanket where we can hide from problems and responsibilities.

3. She is the significant other you never had.

Boys are temporary, friendship is forever (as are hugs, rants, and motivating speeches on moving on).

4. What's hers is mine, and what's mine is hers.

At all times, you essentially have two closets at your disposal. If you run out shampoo or lotion or tampons you never have to go far to find what you need, and neither does she.

5. If you do something stupid she'll bail you out.

Whether it's day or night, sober or not we have each other's back. And if I can't save you, that's only because I'm right there beside you.

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.
