The ABC's Of Israel

A listicle that gives just a little insight into beloved things in Israel.

The ABC's Of Israel

A is for Aroma

B is for Bamba

And you thought Cheese puffs were the best of the best, meet the snack champ.

C is for Challah

D is for Dead Sea

Everyone says they float. You see pictures of people floating. But trust me, you won't believe it until you're there, floating!!!

E is for Eilat

With it's boardwalk and boat rides, Eilat is a magical city in Israel unlike any other.

F is for Falafel

G is for Golan Heights

H is for Hebrew

Even if you go to Israel and can't speak a word of it, you'll pick up on a handful of common sayings and words while you're there. In just a few days you'll be saying "toda" (thank you) and "s'leecha" (excuse me) like you've been living there your whole life!

I is for IDF

The Israeli Defense Force. The army of soldiers that protects and serves Israel with love and dedication every day. Anywhere you go in Israel, you'll see soldiers. Not only are they strong and brave, but they are also kind and friendly. Israel's mandatory draft brings 18 year olds into the army for two to three years, depending on gender. These people are wise beyond their years, and just talking to them is an experience you'll never regret or forget.

J is for Jerusalem

K is for Kehillat-Kadoshah

Jewish Community, something that is filled with love and pride.

L is for Love

M is for Masada

N is for Negev Desert

Spend a night in the Beduin Tents in the Negev desert. Never in your life will you see a sky with more shooting stars or a more beautiful sunrise.

O is for Old City

In Jerusalem, Old City is the home of the holiest cites of the Jewish people.

P is for Pop Rock Chocolate

Q is for Quality

Everything, from the food to the people, the owners of shops in markets and tour guides, everything about the country is top notch!!

R is for Red Sea

Right between Israel and Jordan, the Red Sea is absolutely beautiful (and very fun to go snorkeling in!)

S is for Shuk

Machane Yehuda, Shuk HaCarmel, and so many more amazing markets with food, boutiques, jewelry shops and soo much more!

T is for Tzfat

Looking for an opal hamsa necklace? Bracelet? Earrings? This is your spot!

U is for Unleavened Bread

V is for Vivacious

Nowhere else in the world will you find a country with as much pep in their step as you will find in Israel.

W is for Western Wall

X is for eXcitement

Because what's more exciting than being in Israel?! The place of your people, this country is simply amazing.

Y is for Yad Vashem

There aren't words to explain what it's like walking through this museum. Unlike any other museum dedicated to the memorial and remembrance of the holocaust, this museum literally walks you through the horrors and suffering of those in the holocaust.

Z is for Zikaron

As in Yom Zikaron, Israeli Memorial Day. Parties and parades in the street, Israeli flags draped over balconies and shoulders, it's a celebration unlike any other.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
