6 Things All Curly Haired Girls Know Are True, Because Yes, This Is Our Natural Hair

Having this hair is a struggle.

Most people nowadays are amused by curly hair, which is a good thing because it was not always that way. Despite this, there are many struggles with curly hair I feel called to bring to light.

1. You can't wait too long to style your hair after the shower.

If you do, you will no longer have hair, but a mane. There are no limits to the frizz that ensues.

2. You are scared of heat styling.

Most people would assume this is due to the heat damage, which is also a problem, but personally, I dread having to straighten my hair because it takes 5-EVER. Washing, blow-drying, and straightening take no less than 2.5 hours. No thank you. Y'ALL BETTER APPRECIATE WHEN A CURLY GIRL STRAIGHTENS HER HAIR AND BE HANDING OUT COMPLIMENTS LIKE THERE IS NO TOMORROW BECAUSE THAT TOOK HALF OF HER DAY. Thank you for your compliance.

3. People want to pull your curls to see them spring back.

"OMG it's so springy!" Yes, I understand. Please. It's going to get frizzy if you keep putting your fingers through it, MA'AM. I'm already struggling to keep it under control as it is.

4. Humidity is literally the 11th plague.

No matter how much time or product goes in your hair, the minute you step out into a rainy/humid day, say BYE to any hope of a good hair day.

5. The matted monster at the bottom of your head that enlarges the longer you don't wash your hair.

This is when you realize you are about to lose 3/4 of your hair mass when you detangle. Good times.

6. When people with straight hair complain about their "curly and frizzy" hair.

"OMG, my hair is so curly and frizzy OMG ugh." Listen, HONEY, those are waves, if anything. Look at the mop on top of my head then talk. Thanks :)

At the end of the day though I love having curly hair (on the days it behaves) because it's beautiful in its own way. Werrrk it, girl!!!

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.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
