What it's like Being a morning person

There are two types of people in this world (yes I know, a very typical starter line). Those being, the morning people and the night people. Now being in between those is very rare. There is always one side you are more drawn to.

If you're anything like me, it boggles your mind how people stay in bed all day until the late afternoon sleeping. All of my energy dies after 9 p.m. If I stay up, 1a.m. is a delirious time for me because I have probably been up since 7 a.m. You can find me laying in my bed about ready to sleep around 11 p.m.

My father has said many times, which was inspired by my grandfather, that the nighttime is for the cats. Being that it is a saying, it is hard to explain. But basically, human beings don't belong in the late hours of the night.

This was more of a reference to safety, but overall humans need a sleep routine. The so called "night people," have no sense of time when they are out doing whatever it is they do, and or up all night at home doing... whatever it is they do there too.

What happens when you have to get up super early, but have been up until 5 a.m.?

Let me explain to you the life of a morning person.

Working out early in the morning gives us energy. Waking up early in general does that too.

Breakfast is an amazing meal that prepares us for the day. We can't recall ever sleeping through breakfast. Plus...COFFEE.

We've been morning people since very young. Nap time in school was more like torture as we couldn't sleep at this middle part of the day (at least for me).

We were those children waking up at 6 or 7am just because that is when we naturally woke up, while our parents yelled at us to go back to bed. Personally, I would wake up and read a book, or play on my nintendo...or gameboy (depends how far in the past we are going).

We are usually super productive and feel that the morning brings us opportunities. We have so much to look forward to with such a long day ahead of us. Time goes quickly, but we feel that we buy more time by not wasting the morning with extra hours in bed.

Upon waking up, we can blast music in the house or in the car and sing along. The world is ready for us.

We are probably the obnoxious loud one "this early in the morning."

Unfortunately for the morning people, night people dictate social lives, where everything only starts after 10 p.m. We cannot imagine how people only wake up at 1p.m. and then stay out until 3 a.m. How do you get things done?

That begs the question...shower in the morning or night?

This is a big argument that I am indifferent to, but for me...most likely... night. Go to bed clean, yeah? Sorry morning people, I have betrayed you.

Overall, while the night time is full of life, so is the morning, if you give it a shot. So if you find that you are that night person, try getting a good night's sleep, and start your day off early. You'll find the pleasure of the sun, the birds, and the people you meet will introduce a different part of life.

So see you later sunshine...or should I say...see you early (wink wink).

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.

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.
