Watch out witches, it's almost that time of the year again. Halloween is just around the corner, and for college students it's the biggest weekend of the year- Halloweekend. With three nights to dress up for, it's hard to decide what to wear each night, especially since you don't want to be something that has been so overdone. Do you dare to be Barbie, or even worse, the Mean Girls crew? Do you think of a group costume to do with all of your friends? Are you going to make or buy your costume? The questions that contribute to the decision are endless, but one thing is for sure: you don't want to be one of the twenty cats at the party. I'm not going to lie and say that those costumes aren't cute because sometimes they are, but they are definitely the most basic. With so many different things out there, it's not too hard to figure out something more creative. So, go to Pinterest with your best witches and plan something out. Try something you haven't done or seen before, and make it yourself. Be creative and have fun with it, after all, that's what it's all about. But be careful to avoid these costumes. Here's the ten basic Halloween costumes you'll see at a party:

1. Minnie Mouse

Because all you need is a pair of ears, a red skirt, and a black shirt and you're good to go.

2. Risky Business

I guarantee you 99% of college girls did not even see the movie where this costume originated from.

3. Alcohol

Whether you're Franzia or Coors Light, you will definitely see a group of girls rocking these costumes Halloweekend.

4. Disney Princesses

You're bound to see tutus, glitter, and crowns on Halloweekend, and what better way to combine all three than by being a Disney princess?

5. Cats

Need I say more?

6. Frat Boys

Button down, shorts, calf socks, and a hat- end of story.

7. Nerds

Even though Halloweekend is not even close to a day at the library.

8. Sports Players

Everyone get out you're favorite jersey (even if you're not a sports fan), we're going to be sports players!!

9. Bunnies

No one does it better than Regina George.

10. SWAT team, cops, firefighters, etc.

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.
