Appreciate your second mom.

5 Things You Forgot To Thank Your Best Friend's Mom For

Having a best friend comes with having a second mom, one that takes care of you when you're away from home. They treat you like a child of their own, but how many times have you thanked them for it?

1. Hosting all the sleepovers

I know the last way you wanted to spend your Friday night was taking us to the movies, and then losing sleep because of One Direction blaring and our obnoxious laughter late at night. But you did it without question and I admire you for that.

2. For accepting me into your family

You always make me feel welcome in your home, and I feel as comfortable with your family as I do with mine (even though that's not always a good thing).

3. For always being supportive

You listen to my problems and comfort me when I need it, and you've given me advice that I'll always hold on to. You're such a wise woman, and I'm so thankful for that.

4. For being my mom away from home

Thank you for always offering to let me stay as long as I need to, for always asking about school and family and boys and especially for actually listening and caring when I tell you. I trust you as much as I trust your daughter, and it's a special bond that I appreciate more than you'll ever know.

5. For being a role model

Without you, your daughter and I wouldn't be the young women we are today. You always know exactly what to do and say, and it baffles me how you understand us so easily. I have immense respect for you, and I hope you know that you're never taken for granted.

So, thank you. Thank you for raising not one, but two daughters, for helping us grow and being there every step of the way. Thank you for being part of my support system, and loving me like a daughter of your own

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.

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.
