My Top 10 Albums Of 2018
Preservation Of Moments

So, 2018 was quite a year. Another semester of college completed and luckily I had an amazing soundtrack to keep me sane in the process. Here at the albums dominated my life and defined this year.

1. Jizzy Pearl - All You Is Need Is Soul


Here is the latest solo album from Jizzy Pearl, known for his work in Love/Hate. Let me just say that this album is spectacular. Jizzy's the coolest, to begin with, so it's just awesome in a nutshell. You hear so few truly great metal albums these days, but here's a masterpiece from one of the best.

2. Judas Priest - Firepower


The latest Priest album is absolute firepower. No pun intended. I only heard one song from it before I got to hear the album. My dad and I actually won tickets, and we got my mom one extra ticket so we could see them on the opening night of the tour all in the midst of the winter storms that took place early last year. I got to hear "Firepower", "Lightning Strike" and "Evil Never Dies" live before I even heard the album. It was amazing and certainly an album and time in my life I'll never forget.

3. Panic! At The Disco - Pray For The Wicked


I got into this album when I was studying for college and it was on infinite loop for 3 weeks if not more. I love this album. That's all I can say.

4. Charlie Puth - Voicenotes


This was one of the albums I didn't expect to get into in 2018. I was really interested in hearing this album after I heard "How Long" when it was only a single. So, I stuck to my word, and I heard this album when it came out and I loved it.

5. 5 Seconds Of Summer - Youngblood


This was another album I didn't expect to get into but fell in love with after hearing "Youngblood" when it was only a single.

6. Gin Wigmore - Ivory


My pen pal recommended her to me and I really enjoyed this album. I've listened to "Dirty Mercy" and "Cabrona" endless times. I have to listen to the rest of her catalog, but I'm very pleased with what I've heard so far.

7. Joe Satriani - What Happens Next


This album is excellent!! This was another album we listened to during our winter storm fiasco in 2018. It's a fantastic albums and it has great musicians on it too!!

8. Ghost - Prequelle


I've always heard different music by Ghost, but Prequelle is the first album I can say I loved by them. It's making me reconsider the rest of their catalog. This album is awesome and I love how it moves. It has an awesome pace!! Great stuff.

9. Daron Malakian and Scars On Broadway - Dictator


It's been 10 years since the original Scars On Broadway album was released. I can't even count how many times I've heard this album or even how many times I've heard my dad play drums to this album. I was insanely stoked to hear that the new one was finally coming out after all this time. It's awesome. A modern-day Scars On Broadway, 10 years later and just as fantastic.

10. Grand A.M. - Red


I'll be honest, I didn't listen to this album until today, but I had it on my phone before the end of my last semester. It's really cool and I checked it out off of the artwork and it's excellent!!!

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. 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.
