The 5 Stages Of Waiting For Your Domino's Pizza

College can be defined by a mix of good and bad decisions, especially late night poor decisions. The choice to order Domino's at 3 a.m. after a riveting night out can be classified as either or, but whatever choice you make, here are the 5 stages of waiting approximately 11-18 minutes for your pizza to be done:

1. Order Placed

Why are there so many toppings to choose from for a simple pizza? My mind is thinking simple, but my stomach is thinking sophisticated. Do I go for a pepperoni and bacon large pizza all for myself? Or do I go for pineapple and ham? As Shakespeare once said, "To splurge for the extra toppings, or to not splurge for the extra toppings."

2. The Prep

As I sit in my dorm room thinking about my precious little pizza child about to be born, I start to regret all the calories that I will later consume.

3. Bake

At this point in time, I know there is no going back now. My pizza has met its fate and is being baked into crispy goodness.

4. Quality Check

This is it - the moment of truth. I put all of my trust into the local Domino's pizza employees to ensure that my pizza is satisfactory. Is the crust perfectly fluffy? Does it have just the right amount of sauce? Are the toppings spread evenly? These are the tests that my pizza must pass in order to be perfect for delivery.

5. Out for Delivery

Words cannot explain the happiness felt when the bar on the Domino's pizza tracker approaches the "out for delivery" indicator. I'm just minutes away from the delicious goodness that is Domino's pizza.

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.

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.
