I'm a bad texter, I get it. I also get that it's 2019, which means we live in a world solely revolved around technology as our mode of communication. Call me old fashioned but I don't want to have to rely on my phone to interact with people. So if you're dealing with a bad texter or are one yourself (bless your heart), here are 11 things that may sound like you.

1. People are surprised and celebrate when you responded less than 24 hours later.

2. You get the "Are you alive?" texts. All the time.

Giphy

It's fine, I'm fine.

3. People think of creative ways to get in touch with you.

Giphy

I.E. telegrams; snail mail, or in extreme situations, pigeons.

4. People never understand why you don't "just respond".

Giphy

5. At the end of the day, they know you just won't.

Giphy

It's fine, I'm fine.

6. You start to get a reputation.

Giphy

7. You're a bad texter but great in person.

Giphy

This is SUCH a big mood for the bad-texter people of the world. People assume that being a bad texter= a bad friend. I'm here to tell you that just because we aren't the most technologically reliable doesn't mean we won't be there in a heart beat for our friends.

8. You come back days (or weeks) later trying to continue the conversation.

It doesn't last long, though. People catch onto your trick really quickly and it never ends well.

9. People think by telling you to do better, it'll magically fix everything.

Giphy

Thank you Captain Obvious, I never thought of that. *Insert eye roll Emoji*.

10. Every year, your New Years resolution is to become a better texter.

Giphy

At least you don't have to think of any other resolutions you probably would break too.

11. With all said (or not said) and done, they love you anyway.

Giphy

Hopefully. Maybe a little bit.

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.

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.
