“Star Wars: Battlefront II” recently came out and the story mode is amazing! It bridges the gap perfectly between “Return of The Jedi” and “The Force Awakens” and is quite possibly one of my favorite Star Wars stories to date.

****SPOILERS AHEAD****

The story starts off with Iden Versio, who is part of an Imperial Special Forces squad known as Inferno Squad. The squad has two other members besides Iden, their names are Del Meeko and Gideon Hask. The first mission you play as Iden who has been “captured” on purpose by the rebel alliance in order to delete a message pertaining the Emperors plan over Endor. This mission involves mainly stealth and you really get a look at what is happening off screen in “Return of The Jedi.”

After that mission, the player is then playing as Iden again on Endor, just after the destruction of the shield generator and just before the Rebellion destroys the second Death Star. There is actually a cutscene when the second Death Star is destroyed which then prompts the Empire to evacuate the planet. I really enjoyed this mission, mainly because of the fact that we got to see how the Imperials were reacting to the destruction. Something we never really got to see in the movies.

The next few missions deal with Operation: Cinder which is basically the Empire destroying several planets including Idens home world of Vardos. Which prompts her and Dels decision to defect to the Rebel Alliance. This was something that I didn’t think i would like because the “Imperial Defecting to the Alliance” is so overused, but i actually really enjoyed it because it showed that Iden and Del were able to see the flaws in the Empire and defect. While it is believed that Iden will join the First Order in the expansion pack “Project Resurrection,” however this is still unknown.

The second half of the missions for the story are very different then the first, as they are very hero-based. Hero meaning Han Solo, Princess Leia and Lando Calrissian. while these missions are fun, they are kind of filler as in the end the missions don’t offer much to the story as a whole. Besides the Leia mission which is Leia defending Naboo after the Operation: Cinder satellites failed and the Empire is attacking the city.

The ending of the game is the Battle of Jakku which is one of most fun missions in the game. It has X-Wing combat, ground combat, and a boss battle with Hask, who has remained loyal to the Empire. It ends with Iden and Del sharing a kiss and it then flashes forward to 30 years later and Kylo Ren has tracked Del to Pillio. Kylo is looking for the map to Luke Skywalker which leads straight into “The Force Awakens”. He also mentions Del having a daughter which is possibly Rey. We won’t find out until “The Last Jedi”. Overall, the games story is very good.

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.

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.
