Are We Really Afraid Of Clowns?

Fun Fact: Clowns are just people in dumb clothes

Are We Really Afraid Of Clowns?

All over the country people are up in arms due to the numerous amounts of clown sightings there have been. I'm here to remind you guys that these clowns are not to be feared. First of all, unfollow all those stupid twitter accounts telling you where clowns are, because if there isn't a picture, then it probably isn't real. It's just some college kid trying to make his college relevant so he decides to make up a location near or on campus, and give the made up clown some obscure weapon. A wise man once said, "Pics or it didn't happen", when it comes to the clowns, that's a great rule to follow. Also, don't fall for all the videos you see, because like the fake posts, the videos could be a hoax by some youngsters trying to gain their five seconds of fame. If you see a video of someone in the middle of the woods, and they happen to bump into a clown, there's a 99% chance it's fake. The clowns are trying to scare as many people as possible, so staying on an isolated hiking trail, the odds of scaring someone are pretty low. Then there is the fact that somebody is just videotaping in the middle of nowhere and just happens to bump into a clown. Nobody videotapes while on a hike, so the only possible reason would be if they are filming for a purpose, like setting up a clown in the woods, so they can get a little attention.

Now say you just so happen to find yourself face to face with bozo the red-lipped freak, what are you to do? The answer, just walk away. Your most likely going to be in a high traffic area, so the clown isn't going to do a thing. If you want to call the police, or just pull out your phone, if they see you with a phone they'll jump into the woods. If you're feeling bold, get some cronies and chase that clown down. I'm not one to condone violence, but when it comes to creepy clowns feel free to throw your hands around a little bit. I'm not saying use weapons but throw some 1's and 2's so those clowns don't come around your parts any more.

Finally, if a clown does have an eye on you while you're all alone, there is nothing to fear. It isn't going to do anything, why because it is just a person, like you just dressed up as a pyscho. Just because they are dressed in dumb clothes with ugly makeup on, like some sort of Miley Cyrus look alike, doesn't mean they can get away with a crime. If they wouldn't commit a crime in regular clothes, what makes you think they'd do it as a clown. The consequences still exist even when they are dressed like a clown. So please everyone relax about the stupid clowns, there aren't as many as you think, they aren't as scary as they seem, and they aren't going to do a damn thing.

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.
