2016 was full of ups and downs, but on the bright side, we had the Internet to keep us on our toes. Here are the 10 best internet moments of 2016!

1. Damn, Daniel

Yes, this got old very quickly, but it was pretty amazing the first couple times you watched it. It is a classic 2016 internet moment, whether you love it or hate it.

2. Mr. Krabs Blur

There were endless Spongebob memes this year, but the Mr. Krabs one takes the cake.

3. Evil Kermit

Evil Kermit will never get old because it's hilarious and very very true.

4. Joe Biden Memes

What better way to say goodbye to our current president and vice president then to make them into a meme. Joe Biden memes will always be a classic moment of 2016.

5. Leonardo DiCaprio finally wins an Oscar

This moment almost broke the Internet. Do you know how long this man waited for this moment?! It is truly an unforgettable moment.

6. Harambe

The ape that will live in our hearts forever. Harambe was unfortunately killed this year, but the Internet made sure we would never forget him. RIP Harambe.

7. #KimExposedTaylor

Nothing was more jaw-dropping than when Kim showed the receipts of what really went down during Taylor and Kanye's conversation over his controversial music video for "Famous."

8. The Mannequin Challenge

For some reason, watching people pose completely still with "Crowd Pleaser" playing in the background was so fascinating to watch.

9. Bottle Flipping

Why was this a thing? Who knows. Why was it always entertaining? No one knows.

9. Arthur Fist

Bringing back Arthur with this hilarious meme. It was relatable and never got old.

10. Running Man Challenge

Everyone and their mother did this challenge, which is probably why it got old really quick. It is still an iconic Internet moment of 2016, even if the song "My Boo" is now ruined forever.

There you have it, the best internet moments of 2016. Yes, there were way more than 10 moments but these are the ones I found the best. Hope you enjoyed!

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.

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.
