Why Being Healthy is so Hard, and Why it Sucks so Much

Being Healthy Sucks
Huffington Post

We all have thought about trying to be healthy for our new years resolution. Or just to try to make a better us, to make yourself feel better about whatever is happening in our lives at that time. But let me tell you why being healthy sucks. It seems like a great idea at first, and talking about it seems like the best idea in the world. But it’s no fun. And it’s so time consuming!

The number one reason being healthy sucks is because of the food choices. Nothing healthy actually tastes good! Well, besides maybe certain fruits. Everything else either doesn’t have any flavoring, or the flavoring is too strong and you can barely eat it. Like salad. I’m not a rabbit! Why would I want to eat a salad voluntarily, I have better food choices than to eat something that doesn’t actually fill me up. And it tastes like grass, don’t ask how I know what grass tastes like…

Next reason being healthy sucks, is because exercising takes a lot of work. Running, lifting weights all of it. Running just takes all of the energy out of you, and for what? To get to one place faster than if you would walk? No thanks. And lifting weights is a great idea, and props to everyone who does it, but to me straining my muscles just doesn’t sound like a fun time.

I know I sound like the unhealthiest person in the world. I realize this, I do try to be healthy, it’s just no fun at all. I would rather eat all of the sugary things like brownies, and drink soda, and just sit around and watch movies. But not everyone can live in a fairytale…

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.
