Being single during the holidays, as told by ELF.

This is what it is like being single during the holidays, as told by Buddy the ELF.

Being single during the holidays, as told by ELF.

The holidays can be a rough time for singles. Everyone around you is kissing under the mistletoe while you’re kissing the eggnog your mom made for you. Not to worry, though. Buddy the ELF understands what you’re going through and he is here to put some light into your single life!

First off, it’s December. December is supposed to be the most cheerful month of the year!

You get invited to your first holiday party, you're so excited to spread all of the Holiday cheer. Then you come in, what do you see?

You're pretty much the only one without a date.

Now...everyone around you is not only coupled up...but...everyone is now kissing under the mistletoe.

What do you do? Be super hard on yourself because there is probably a reason why you're dateless.

Then you realize, maybe you should make the best of the situation and try to have fun with that one other friend who is single.

Oh yeah, and the table of food, that's ALL you.

Plus, that holiday wine and tequila doesn't look so bad either.

Until, you have a bit too much of it.

Now, your single friend is making out with someone.

Once you have officially lost all hope in your single life, you look across the room and there is another miserable person.

You get to talking and now you're both kissing under the mistletoe.

The night has officially ended, and you're so happy you didn't end up alone the WHOLE time.

You wake up the next morning, with a hangover that hit you a bit too hard.

Then you remember that you met someone as miserable as you last night.

You wait for their call, checking your phone every five seconds.

Now you're thinking that this was all supposed to happen. This was the reason you went to that party, to meet another miserable single person!

Seriously, you guys really hit it off.

You even start thinking about your next date.

Then, they don't call.

You drink some more alcohol so you can stop looking at your phone, cuz a watched pot never boils.

Of course, now you're drunk and sad again because you're single and they didn't call. You start thinking it's you.

As soon as you realize that you're going to be forever alone, YOU GET A CALL! AND GUESS WHO IT IS!

You run to the phone like:

You just think about how perfect this is.

Just to realize that they aren't at all what you thought.

Back to square one and you remember you're still single.

And you have another Christmas party tomorrow.

No date either.

But be happy because it's the holidays!

And it's the best time to be single, you know why? Because there is no need to spend money on anybody.

So go to that next party with a smile on your face.

Take every situation that comes your way, positively!

And remember, there is always next holiday season to meet somebody new.

Somebody who will make you forget all of the holidays you spent alone.

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.

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.
