8 Games To Spice Up Your Next Game Night

Games nights can be fun at any age, whether you're playing them with your family, your floor, or just a group of friends. But if you've ended one too many friendships over a game of Monopoly, it may be time to find some new games to play. Here's a list of 8 tested-by-me games that all ages can enjoy to get you started:

1. Otrio

This game is tic-tac-toe on steroids. It's hard to keep up with the other 3 players because there are so many ways to get 3 in a row. You'll find yourself frustrated when your opponent sneaks past you to win.

2. Tension

Adults and kids go head-to-head in this game of categories.

3. Square Up

This is a fast-paced game of making your pattern before your partner does. Before you know it, a couple hours and a few dozen rounds will fly by.

4. Bananagrams

This game is perfect for any Words With Friends fans. You make your own Scrabble board with the letters you're given and keep building as you draw more letters. Plus, it's super portable to bring on trips or to a friend's.

5. Five Second Rule

It sounds super easy - just name 3 things that go with the category when it's your turn. But when you only have 5 seconds, the pressure comes down and you're bound to mess up, which makes for some great laughs.

6. Spot It

Your reaction time will be tested in this fast-paced game of matching. You may get mad at your friends as you fight over who said it first but it'll turn hours of playing.

7. Phase 10

Only play this game if you have all night because it takes a lot of focus and patience. I've been up until 5 am finishing this addictive card game.

8. Say Anything

This game will test how well you know your opponents and how well you think you know your opponents knowledge of your opponents. (Confused? Me too.) If you like Apples to Apples, you'll love Say Anything.

Next time you and your friends are bored, check out one of these games for a fun, competitive night!

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.

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.
