You know who you are.

7 Problems of Being the Monica of the Group

Every one of your friends fits one of the "Friends" cast molds. You know right away who is who, but us Monica's gotta stick together. Solidarity, sister!! Amirite?

1) People never acknowledge that you're always right

You honestly give the best advice out of your friend group, and when they don’t follow it, you can’t be blamed for the outcome of the situation. If they would simply follow your advice, their lives would be much less complicated.

2) Making the best of the situations they get you into

You have invariably gotten into some interesting situations, some of them your own doing, others… not so much.

3) Being an amateur psychologist

You are definitely the one that everyone come to for advice. This puts you in the position of having to figure out everyone else’s problems even when you can’t really figure your own out sometimes. Everything from decoding text messages to deciphering their subconscious motives falls under your job description.

4) Putting them before yourself

You tend to put others needs in front of your own if it will make them happy, especially any of those in your close-knit friend group. You give them what they need, even if it comes at your expense.

5) Planning everything

Trying to get all of your friends together for anything more than a casual hangout takes weeks of planning down to the minute. Even then, you have to wrangle them and check in to make sure that everything is going according to plan. This may include having to dress someone in order for them to get ready in time.

6) Keeping track of all kinds of information

When someone needs information about one of your friends, whether it’s a Christmas gift from their significant other, their work times for scheduling their hair appointment, or details on their new boo for their parents, you are the go-to person.

7) Being the emergency contact on EVERYTHING

If something goes wrong, you are the person that gets called. Whether it’s having to get out of a bad date or needing a ride to the doctor, your phone lights up.

Let's face it, they'd be lost without you. Bt at the end of the day, everyone friend group needs a Monica, and you're glad that it's 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.

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.
