5 Things that Happen when theres a Heatwave in Madison

Theres arguably nothing better than a heatwave spring semester in Madison. After being frozen in negative degree weather for about 4 months, the first signs of heat are extremely exciting. Get ready to take off your big winter jackets and snowboots, spring might be here? This weather automatically puts anyone in a better mood, here are 5 things that happen when theres a heatwave:

1) Going to the Terrace

With a heatwave in Madison the terrace is definitely one of the first places we all think of to go. Thanks to global warming the lake is still frozen enough for us to walk on, yet we don't even have to wear winter jackets. Take a walk on the lake, do work outside or at the memorial union, or enjoy a meal outside, the terrace is definitely a perfect place to go.

2) Food Carts

Definitely one of the best, most unique things about our campus that is missed during the winter. Weather its for study break, class break, or just going for a walk, food carts are the perfect place to go with friends and grab some food. Sitting outside eating food from the food carts is a great Madison experience that everyone loves to do when it's nice out!

3) Darties.

Day. Parties. Need I say more?

4) Running outside

When the weather is nice all you want to do is be outside. Walking or running on the lakeshore path is a great way to spend part of your day. Exercise outside and enjoy the sunshine and slight heat since it won't last for long.

5) Walking to the Capitol

With the sun shining and the weather nice and warm, the Capitol is a perfect place to go. Take some time to walk around the Capitol and get brunch with family and friends. It's a perfect way to spend some time in the sunshine and enjoy it while you can!

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.

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.
