7 Things That Make You From Hartsville, SC

When I tell people that I am from Hartsville, South Carolina, I get looked at like I am crazy because usually no one knows it even exists. However, once I say we are about 30 minutes from Florence, it just clicks and then people somewhat understand. Many do not know what or where Hartsville is because we are a small town with the local businesses and absolutely nothing to do if you are under the age of 21. Living in a small town is hard because one everyone knows basically everything about you and two there are not that many hangouts for teenagers. There are a few things that if you know or do, you are from the small town of Hartsville, SC.

1. Sonic is a typical teen hangout. You do not actually order anything, but you show up in your trucks and just stand there talking.

2. The skating rink was SO cool until you hit about 8th grade. You would always beg your parents to drive you out to the middle of BFE on a Friday night just to deal with the 'drama' that someone in middle school could bring to the table.

3. Loitering outside of pool time (an old pool hall) until the cops were called and then you'd scatter.

4. Walking uptown because we thought it was cool....when it really was not.

5. Going to the home football games to not actually watch the game, but to just walk in front of the bleachers, literally going in circles. Or just taking selfies to prove we were there.

6. Going to Ruth's Drive-In to eat some seriously awesome, but greasy food. And also spend hours just sitting at a table because the people who work there are the best.

7. And then comes the time when you are extremely desperate and drive all of the way to Florence to go the mall and not buying anything.

Basically living in a small town has its benefits, but it can also be seriously boring. However, I would not want to live anywhere else for now.

KEY: BFE= Bum F*** Egypt; middle of nowhere

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.

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.
